Logos and Custom Artwork
If you have your own artwork; a logo, drawing, insignia, family crest, etc. we can usually incorporate it into the engraving. All custom artwork and logos need to be quoted by our engraver. The price will depend on the complexity and size of the image. Also, if you provide the artwork files needed in high resolution or vector image that will reduce the price to you. Prefered file formats are; .ai, .psd, .eps, .bmp, .jpg, .gif format (If you are unsure about formats, please give us a call and we will help). We can also create images from scratch based on your description or take a low resolution or hand drawn image you want and digitalize it for engraving. Please note that logos will be engraved in an outline format.
Fonts and Typefaces
We have thousands of different fonts you can choose from. Let our professional engravers pick the best look for your piece. If you have a special font you would like us to use, just ask. We can even take a hand written message or signature and engrave it!

Engraving Turnaround Time - How long will my engraving take?
Not as long as you think! Our normal turnaround time for most engravings is 7 to 10 days. Most Saturdays we even will do some "on the spot" engravings for simple orders on flat surfaces like medallions, pendants and beads. We offer Rush and Express services as well, for those emergency needs.

Express Engraving: 1-2 Days
Pricing is based on how many letters you would like engraved. A letter counts as any mark made that is not a symbol (picture), for example: A S D f & ! < > : , . are all counted as letters. Spaces are free and not counted. We can also mount your engraved plates to plaques and trophies. Your engraved text can be "blackened" with various colors for special effects.
Because each engraving job is so different, we ask that you visit us in store for pricing.
