|Engraving Services Explained|Pewter is the ideal metal for engraving of text or complex designs.
We offer a high quality engraving service - name, initials, inscriptions, coats of arms, cartoons or other detailed line drawings can be added to tankards, goblets and flasks for you prior to despatch. The engraving is done by following lines. For this reason photographs or shaded images are not suitable.
We also have a range of decorations which can be used as surrounds
for names, initials or other wording. These choices can be seen and ordered below.
Text engraving can be short or long provided there is sufficient space available - poems can readily be added to tankards for instance. Some examples of Latin and other inscriptions which you might consider are given on the engraving page.Engraving Charges:
£5 for up to 20 characters engraved per tankard, flask etc, plus 10p per character thereafter.
Engraving a Decoration (see below) £3.75
Engraving a Scottish Can Crest or other larger design £10
Creaing design from customer's artwork £10
|Engraving Signs of the Zodiac|

|Text Styles, Fonts and sizes|
We show here a range of fonts which can be chosen. The image shows the way in which most lettering is engraved, i.e. taking the outline of each letter, rather than a single stroke which most typed fonts use. (This outline gives an attractive effect which is most visible where larger initials are engraved, for small size engraving the outline merges together.) When emailing your engraving instructions to us, please give any comments you wish (which may be very specific or generalised ) about the text style or font you would like to have used. e.g. I'd like 'a script style', 'Block letters' 'Please use Algerian font' etc.If you wish please state your preferences for size of text. Different lines in your engraving can be different sizes. Engraving can be done quite small if you wish it to be discrete, i.e. only readable on close examination - just request that the text size is 'as small as possible' - this can if you wish be engraved low down on the side of the item being engraved.
