On-Site Engraving Events
On-Site Engraving Events are retail promotional events that are very successful in building a repeat customer base and  record breaking sales!  The engraving is  done, at the store, set up near the items to be engraved.     A beautiful, flowing, easy-to-read script  is engraved, while the customer watches.  A personalized name, a brief message or a single monogram letter can be hand-engraved into crystal, glass or metal surface of nearly any product, The engraving creates an excitement  as customers watch their gifts items embellished with an exquisite personalization. 
   A pre-sale period, allows for engraving to be offered  4-6 weeks prior to the event to capitalize on maximum sales. An On-Site Engraving Event a is retail promotional event that is successful prior to the event day, due to the pre-sales.
    The hand-engraving tool is a small handpiece, which is an ultra-high-speed air driven drill. The unique sound draws attention as people stop to see the activity, often making an impulse purchase due to the engraving and exquisite personalization. A bright gold or silver color inlay can be filled in the engraved lettering on colored glass, further enhancing the engraving. 
    Personalized engraving is always a customer pleaser. They recognize the uniqueness of the product, knowing it will be a one-of-a-kind gift.  It is also a "locked in" sale for the department since engraved products that have been personalized never get returned for exchange, credit or refunds. Check the Engraving Event Schedule for times and locations of events.
