Do you need custom engraving? Special engraving orders don't upset us!
Take this recent wedding gift engraving job for example...
We had a client who was refinishing an antique trunk as a wedding gift. As a symbol of the marital bond, she wanted to apply a personalized engraved message on an antique lock.
She brought us an old lock with an aged patina and requested the couple's last names be engraved with the date of their "incorporation." The bride took the groom's last name of Berry, and the client chose a fancy script to give the name the look of a newly created entity, "Berry & Berry." To commemorate the wedding year and play up her theme, she asked us to add "Incorporated 2015"
The result was fantastic when the old copper shined through the years of age on the face of the lock. She thought this was the perfect symbol for a marriage meant to shine through the tests of time!
