  • DESCRIPTIONGlass Trinket box hand engraved with copy of a loved ones handwriting – engraved to order.One of our best selling lines – One customer said “My grandparents passed away many years ago and we had a card with their handwriting on so for my mum’s 60th birthday I had a beautiful box engraved with a message to her from her parents using their words in a card. I cried with tears of joy when I received this. It is incredible and I’m so pleased with it and cannot wait for my mum to receive it. Email communication was really friendly and helpful and uploading my image of the card / handwriting was so easy to do. Thank you x” Lisa M.

Engraving on Glass

Engraving is done by hand and using traditional techniques, and there is not a laser machine or sandblaster in sight!  The lettering is drawn out in our calligraphy font to make sure it will fit nicely, and then copied onto the glass using a non-permanent ink pen, because we found this works best for us.  Once that is done and we are ready to start engraving then it’s on with the mask and gloves. A large powerful vacuum extractor sucks up all the glass dust and we also use a bright illuminating spotlight.

To engrave, a pendant drill is used (very similar to a dentist’s drill) fitted with a diamond coated spherical burr.  This whizzes round at super speed and takes off a fine top layer of the glass. Our beautiful calligraphy font takes 2 coats because we use one for the initial lines, and then back again to thicken up all the down strokes, to give it that impressive italic quality.

Once the engraving is finished, the glass is given a good wash to remove any remaining pen marks, and then dried and polished to a high shine.

Our glass gifts are wrapped in navy blue acid free tissue paper, using corrugated card and scrunched up paper to protect the glass where we can, therefore avoiding plastic bubble wrap.   This all goes inside a new postal box, gets collected by Royal Mail, and then delivered to you!
