ABOUT HOW I ENGRAVE
The style of engraving I do is known as diamond drag engraving using a manual Pantograph engraver. This form of engraving is considered obsolete since most is now done via computerized laser and rotary engraving.
I use primarily vintage brass font sets, so I like to think my customers are not only getting a handmade item but also a piece of history.
This is an “Old School” form of engraving. It differs from hand stamping, where the letters are struck via a hammer into the metal, and usually blackened to stand out. The diamond tip leaves an impression on the metal and is left the natural color. Any dark appearance in my photos is due to reflection or shadow.
I strive to make/mail orders within 1 business day whenever possible. Please keep in mind that delivery times and delays are dictated by the carrier, weather, holidays, or other circumstances out of my control.
