All of our handwriting gifts are extra special – a memento that replicates the handwriting of a loved one is something to be treasured for ever – we have engraved excerpts from a mother’s diary, messages of love from precious letters and cards, wedding day wishes from someone who can’t be there on the special day, Christmas ornaments engraved with a signature or poem to remind us of those who can’t be with us any more – all messages from the heart.

Please note, the handwriting is hand engraved, not lasered, so we copy it by eye rather than it being an exact digital copy as you would get from a laser machined gift – hand engraving is not an exact science, but hopefully you can see from the photos on the listing that we are very good at what we do!!

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!
