Custom Engraving Services

Jewelry engraving choices including pricing, font selections and engraving methods.

Traditional & Laser Engraving

Our traditional engraving method calls for the inscription to be etched into the metal using a diamond tipped stylus. The look is very elegant, and it's an excellent choice for sterling silver, yellow, white or rose gold, plus polished stainless steel jewelry, personalized keychains, and other customized gift choices.

Laser engraving creates a solid black inscription on stainless steel pieces and a silverish to white finish on our black plated steel products. We find that the black laser inscription stands out more than the traditional engraving and therefore it's a great choice when engraving medical jewelry items such as medical ID bracelets which can be viewed on our sister site StickyJ Medical ID. Laser engraving is not available for precious metals such as sterling silver and gold at this time.

Our price for single side custom engraving is $7.95. Symbols are individually priced and some specialty fonts have additional charges as well.

Monogrammed Engraving

Same as with text, our single side monogram engraving price is $7.95. We offer our great variety of personalized monograms which include Circle, Roman, Single initials, and Interlocking monograms. However, if you have your own custom monogram design you wish to submit, please email it to our graphic department at logo@thoughtful-impressions.com for approval and we can likely engrave it as such. Capital letters A through Z are available. **Initials are engraved in the order you specify.** Unless you request otherwise, the monogram is sized to fit properly in the center of your product. We recommend engraving monograms on your minimal style engraved necklaces including engraved lockets for women and engraved wedding gifts.

Premium Fonts

We offer several premium fonts as you'll see in our font selection drop-down menu. The price is listed in accordance with each font. Some of the premium fonts we offer are Hebrew, Greek and Roman Filled. For any questions relative to font selection, please feel free to contact our customer service department. If you do not see the font listed that you require for your engraving, please contact our customer service department and we will determine if it is possible to use that font or perhaps one that looks similar.

Front / Back / Inside / Outside

Due to the range of products we offer, the engraving spaces will range from front to back to inside to outside and sometimes even top and bottom. Each product description is a helpful aid in understanding how your engraving will appear in the available spaces. Be sure to read that section for your item when placing your order to ensure it is engraved exactly as you wish.

Special Instructions

We provide an open text box in the personalization section which we've labeled the special instructions text box of each product. This way if you need to put in a special request such as for there to be additional space between text and graphics this is where you'll want to place that instruction.

Portrait and Landscape orientation options are available for most items; please be sure to carefully select your preference for either style.

Preview Window

The preview window option is enlarged for readability - it is NOT the actual size that will be engraved. We've included this feature on our site to provide a visual aid to what the font and placement of text will look like. When previewing monograms, be sure to enter all three letters in uppercase.

Our engravers are artisans who take pride in every item they personalize. For each product, they carefully review it before, during and after it is engraved to ensure the utmost in quality and aesthetic. If they think that the product will look better engraved with perhaps a different font or a larger, smaller size, etc, then they will suggest that to you. We recognize that oftentimes the jewelry we are engraving is to commemorate special occasions like your wedding day or the birth of child and because of this, we want to ensure that your engraving is exactly what you're expecting.
