We are not big fans of engraving. You would be surprised how many pieces come back asking if the engraving can be removed (divorce,
re-gifting, selling, etc). Also keep in mind that engraving is an added complication that can take time and you will need to plan ahead. And, due to the opportunity for mistakes, we
cannot act as the middleman: you will have to make all the arrangements with the companies who do the engraving.
Note" #4 leaf and smaller are too small for engravings.
All items Hayes Custom Engraving: Our own hand-chiseled engraving is rustic and
non-removable. We only offer it on items which are custom-made and the charge is $25 minimum plus $5 per character and your item will be placed on the custom-order wait list since the item has to
be made from scratch in order to be engraved while flat. Please, no long words like 'congratulations, anniversary, etc. '. The number of words possible is also very limited: No engraving on

Generally three words or so will fit on these items. Allow 7-10 days turn-around. MP Inc uses a large stylus, so they can't
engrave belt buckles due to interference with the loop & pin, and they have to engrave other jewelry items with a fairly small font. (If you are in the Roaring Fork Valley use OSM
