Finding the perfect gift for that special someone is one way to let them know just how much they mean to you: But sometimes, deciding upon a fitting present can be a real challenge.
Engraving adds a personal touch to your chosen gift – elevating its status from simple present to treasured memento.
Whether you choose to add a thoughtful message, a memorable date, or a poetic verse, you can be sure that your gift will be treasured by its recipient, thanks to the enduring power of engraving.
What is engraving?
Engraving is the skilled art of carving intricate forms onto hard, planar surfaces. In the past, such embellishments were typically reserved for one-off pieces of precious jewellery, or as an essential step in the manufacture of printing plates.
Today it is possible for professional engravers to add a personal touch to just about any kind of gift product imaginable, but why should you invest in a personalised gift for your special someone?
Carry on an age-old tradition
Since the dawn of time, humanity has left its mark on the world and the objects which inhabit it: Literally!
From stone carvings dating back half a million years, to intricately hand-engraved jewellery pieces from antiquity – all the way through to the latest precision laser-engraved items available today, a long tradition of engraving has endured to this day, as a link to the past.
In a world filled with so many faceless, mass-produced articles, a subtly engraved finish really make a gift stand out from the crowd.
Create future heirlooms
Engraving adds a personal touch to any object: And the permanent nature of such a customisation ensures that your gift will continue to tell a story for years to come.
Let that special someone know how you feel
Sometimes finding the right words can be tricky, but when you do – few methods for conveying them will have as much impact as an engraved message on a beautiful gift.
