Engraving Advice

  • Practice writing your wording and layout, keep it simple and to the point.
  • Avoid 'From'... & 'To'... format in your inscription it's not a gift card.
  • Capitalize the first letter of each major word.
  • Avoid using block capitals, expect for initials.
  • Try to keep the longest line in the centre.
  • It's a little more discreet and personal to add the inscription to the back of the case, don't spoil your item by adding too much text front and back.
  • A well balanced concise inscription will always produce the best result, but we are happy to engrave your requirements.


  • Once an order has been engraved it cannot be cancelled.
  • We do not refund or exchange engraved items.
