A #lovecard for your loved ones
Get busy on your own or with your kids and design your own engraved postcard. Make a personal gift for that one person who could use it right now. The dear grandpa or grandma that you can't visit right now, the neighbor who is working hard in the hospital, your dear brother who is abroad, surprise them with your own design! This personal message will stay with you for a long time, because it is engraved on a wooden postcard. The card measures approximately 15 x 10 cm and will be sent by post, so don't forget to give the address of the lucky recipient! The engraving is included in the price, so let your creativity run wild!

At Uncover Lab, we make objects personal. We proudly call ourselves the first tattoo shop in the Netherlands for objects. In our shop in De Hallen, Amsterdam we laser engrave almost everything. This can be a product from our shop or an object you brought yourself. We also have a workshop (Uncover Mac) where we customize, as the only one in the world, the luminous apple behind the MacBook.
In principle, yes. However, there are a number of conditions that an object must meet. The object to be engraved must fit one of our laser machines and must be made of a material that reacts well with our lasers. Finally, the surface to be engraved should have little curvature so that a nice, sharp engraving is produced. We sometimes engrave balls, but then the engraving remains fairly small.
Forever, just like a tattoo :).
Yes, we like this a lot! Besides the products we offer in our webshop, we have already engraved so many different objects that we have a good idea of the result. We experiment daily with new materials and shapes so we can always give you the best advice. Before you bring an object to have it engraved, we always advise you to ask about the possibilities in advance. mail, phone (+31 (0)20-2613413) or the chat function (below right).
Yes, we do! We engrave for companies, from local to multinational. Business engraving starts at 5 pieces but can run into the hundreds (maybe even thousands...). For large quantities we offer a reduced price and we will discuss how to get the best result. For more info and contact with Maarten (Head of Sales) we would like to refer you to this website. page.

Engraving is very fast, usually no more than a few seconds. With preparation and design time, it takes an average of 15 minutes.
If you want to have a design engraved there are two options: you can order online through our builder or you can visit us in the shop. When ordering online, the engraving costs are a bit lower than in the shop. Online you can have an item engraved from €12.50 (excl. the price of the product) and in the shop the engraving is from €15. The final price depends on the size of the engraving and the product.
We ship via PostNL. Small, flat products can fit through the mailbox (€4.75). If you order a larger product or want a tracking code it costs €6.95. It is of course also possible to pick up your package at a PostNL collection point (€6.95). We always try to get your package to you within 24 hours. If that is not possible, you will receive it the next day.
It is possible as long as it does not contain PVC. Otherwise harmful substances are released. Plastic objects include AirPods, chargers, and Plexiglas/ Perspex. Here Learn more.
One of our favorites! We are best known for engraving wooden boards but we also engrave objects like shuffleboards and guitars. The options are endless. On this page you can read all about wood engraving.
Metal objects give great results. Knives, Secrids, flasks, watches, jewelry, grinders... come on! All information about metal can be found here.
For example, the Moleskines in our webshop are made of (fake) leather and give a very nice result. We never encounter big problems with them. Read here more.
We have been in contact with many different types of textiles. We have engraved denim jackets or fabric covers of wedding books with beautiful results.
Our least favorite material... We don't engrave glass because our machines don't produce a nice result.
Don't worry, we may have engraved your material but it is rare. Ask for more information in the chat or mail us.
Without a doubt. When it has enough contrast and clear lines it is easy to engrave. In our online builder you can upload images. Get there by selecting a product and pressing the 'design' button. If you have any doubts or problems: send us a screenshot in the chat!
You'll make us very happy if you have an .eps or .ai file. Otherwise, we can also do it (if the quality is sufficient) with many other formats, such as .jpg (.jpeg), .png or .pdf.
Our creative operators all have a design background. On request they will be happy to create a personal design for you. This does involve a fee of €15 per quarter hour.
This is often possible, but not every photo lends itself very well for engraving. When converting photos, they sometimes lose detail. So it is important that the photo has enough contrast. Want to be sure? Send the photo to us via chat or mail and we will have a look at it.
It's not really possible. Almost always the engraving will be a lighter or darker version of the color of the material, unless a colored top layer is applied beforehand. Then engraving is done through the colored layer and you get the color of the material underneath.
Fast delivery, card was made exactly as I intended. Top!
What a fantastic fun iniative and great gift!
