Do You Have a Large Amount of Text to Engrave?

April 24th, 2014 by
You would be surprised at how often we receive orders with large amounts of text.  When we first started engraving, it seemed that people would request us to engrave a name & date, perhaps a line saying Congratulations or Happy Birthday.   However now the trend is definitely towards longer texts.   In part this is probably due to technology, with computer generated images, lasers and better stencil materials, engravers are able to accommodate these type of requests quite easily. So h [...]Read More

The Perfect Custom Engraved Gift for the Home Chef!

April 9th, 2014 by
I  don’t know about you, but in our house cooking is the main event.   We enjoy trying different recipes and frequently use recipes from England, India, Thailand, Mexico, Germany Italy, the Middle East - and well basically all over the world.

Or better yet a British gas mark of of 5?  Even simple calculations [...]Read More

What is the difference between crystal and glass?

March 16th, 2014 by

Following the Craft Whiskey Trend

January 29th, 2014 by
Recently I heard a news article on the radio about Craft Whiskey Distillers and was surprised to learn that there are over 200 micro-distilleries operating in the USA.   A quick Google search later and I found that there are 4 distilleries within a few miles of my house and there are a number of whiskey festivals and tastings.   Not knowing too much about the art of Distilling I am looking forward to following this new trend in micro brewing and learning about locally produced W [...]Read More

It’s not all about the Holidays – Happy Anniversary!

November 26th, 2013 by
