Hi guys,

Anyone know of, or have used, a reliable/competent deep etching service offered?

Our head office creatives are looking for such, and relatively urgently.

Can't see why it couldn't be 'offshore', depending on bandwith, (I have no detail as to file size/nature of job at this stage).

We're in OZ (just a reminder.)

Diddler, you may of someone here in OZ.

Thanks

Normally it would be done in house out of our Sydney Office / Creatives. I can enquire if you like.
You can't polish a Turd, but you can roll it in glitter!

interesting, Ive never heard it called deep etching services before!

Not sure what it is, is it embossing?

Best as I can tell it's mask cutting / clipping path creation.
I've never heard it called that before either.
Funny, reminds me of very old stuff like dot-etching  :cane:
Take me to your ladder.

That is what they call it in India/Bangladesh. Pretty sure that post is spam from there.

I did an internship here back in the 90's:

I remember doing some guitar amplifier tags that were maybe .125 thick, then acid relief etched to about half that. Really cool stuff.

In rotogravure, before the HelioKlischograph came into being, we had to etch the copper cylinders with Iron(III) chloride (FeCl 3), also called ferric chloride. That stuff would eat the clothes right off of your body.  :rotf:

Deep etching: What the heck is that?

she makes it sound like clipping paths are so easy to make, just click around and viola!... instant path.
all you need to do now is spend another hour or 2 putzing with it to get it to look good.
Easy as ABC

Yeah, and using selection tool THEN converting to path makes a lot of points. Ugly.

We used to cut so many paths (and other times selections for like different hits of opaque white) that we used to have Wacom tablets to help our wrists not to disintegrate.
