On-site Events

On-site events typically bring audiences close to the work being engraved. Guests enjoy watching my speed and accuracy applied to their fine perfume bottles, wine glasses and jewelry. They walk away satisfied and happy, talking about their experience and sharing it with others attending the event.

My daughter’s mother-in-law said it was stunning! We served her birthday cake on the cake plate and it was such a fun surprise to show her the initials and birthdate. Again thank you! I’m sure we’ll have other engravings for you to do!
Our engraver was AWESOME!
