Our service to you


Whether we are using the diamond-tip engraver or the laser engraver for your engraving, where possible, we prefer to talk through with you about the details of your engraving – specifically, the wording, the layout and the typeface. We query and confirm any unusual spellings.

Where requRuth Sharpe at the diamond-tip engraving machineired, we will produce a proof and send this to you prior to engraving for you to approve and return to us.

If we cannot speak with you face-to-face, we will confirm details by email or telephone or both.

Care and attention to detail are key to the professional service delivered by Sharpe Engraving.

A word on pricing

Mike at laser machineMany engravers offer 'free engraving', which usually means the cost of the engraving is 'hidden' in the price paid.

However, engraving has a value like all other goods and services – in fact, it is and has a very skilled value. 

Consequently, Sharpe Engraving prefers to show you how our prices are calculated, with a separate engraving price and a separate price for each item.

It is usually possible to offer discounts on larger orders.
