Lots of Personalized Gift Options
Like the idea of a personalized gift, but don't know what to purchase? Give us a call at 1-888-851-9088 (toll-free) for ideas! From personalized vintage wood or metal signs featuring retro graphics to handsome engraved brass bells and compasses, we have something for everyone and for just about any occasion. Did you recently stay at a friends' cabin or beach house? Why not send them a lake or beach sign as a thank you gift personalized with their name, town or favorite beach? Know someone who's retiring? A pocket compass engraved with the retiree's name and years of service makes a memorable gift.
Some of our most popular engraved gifts are bells which are often hung in offices, boats, or on decks and patios attached to homes or cabins. Many of our customers engrave with their name and the year their home was built. If you're hanging a bell on a boat, why not inscribe the name of the boat and the year it was purchased?
Our bells also make great sales awards engraved with the employee's name, thanking him or her for making the cash register 'ring.' Our military, police, and fire bells make great retirement gifts with the person's name, rank, and years of service engraved.
Nameplates can be attached to many items we carry as well including our sextants and popular framed postage stamp collections.

Bell Logo Engraving, A Note Regarding Proofs
Recently we significantly lowered the price of engraving a logo on our bells to make it more cost effective for customers to see their logo on single bell orders. There is considerable graphics/computer time involved preparing logos to be engraved, as engraving can not do colors or shades and very few logo files come as needed. Most logos also take considerably longer to engrave than text, and quite frankly, as bells are not perfect cylinders, we unfortunately sometimes end up having to engrave a second bell (after ruining the first).
Because of this, we can no longer include 'mock ups' or 'proofs' as part of the $75 logo setup/engraving fee on single bell orders, or provide them before an actual order is placed. We will provide a rough mock up for an additional $30 fee. The actual engraving may end up slightly different in size than in the proof, as the skilled engraver who decides where the logo will best fit on a particular bell (and it is a skill, as most companies will not engrave bells because of their odd shape) is not the graphic designer who provides the computer generated version. Keep in mind that we engrave hundreds of logos each year, and the vast majority of our customers are pleased with the result. If you're not, we will do whatever it takes to make you satisfied!
