The Magic of Engraving

I am so excited to start this blog to share our journey with you.

We started this journey over 20 years ago in order to positively affect peoples’ lives. Before this I worked in the claims department of a crop insurance company. I helped farmers whose crops were hailed out, burned up in a drought or washed out in heavy rains. However, it wasn’t until I joined the family’s engraving business that I had a personal connection to the people that I helped.

I was asked to sum up what we do in a simple phrase – an elevator pitch. A friend suggested that we celebrate victories. From the birth of a child, school achievements, career accomplishments, weddings, retirement, lifetime accolades, we are here to preserve those treasured memories.

Weirdly enough, I got such fulfillment from making my customers cry – I mean touching their lives. That’s my inspiration to keep going when the details of small business drive me crazy. So each day when I get to work, I check emails and take care of business. Then I go make engraving magic.

Over the next few weeks we’ll share some of the processes that we use to make our creations and show some of the unique things that we do. I hope you enjoy taking this journey with us!
