Live on-site calligraphy and engraving is a great option for events like:

  • Brand activations or promotional events
  • Holiday events (i.e. Christmas/Hanukkah, Valentine’s Day, Mother’s or Father’s Day, etc.)
  • Product/store launches
  • Fundraisers and auctions
  • Corporate events and conferences
  • Corporate gifts/Influencer seeding
  • Private events (i.e. weddings and parties)

Engraving is a premium upgrade when paint or vinyl aren’t quite the right option for your event or product. Engraving provides the only permanent customization that won’t eventually peel or scratch off glass or metal surfaces.

Unlike machine engraving, hand engraving has the flexibility of creating unique designs on a variety of surfaces, including unconventionally shaped items. My engraver is small and portable, allowing me to set up in any area of your store or event space. Plus, your sales associates can focus on servicing clients instead of managing a machine engraver.
