Engraving Instructions

First, please keep in mind that you may place any order without initially providing engraving instructions or artwork.  This will allow us to access our inventory quicker to better serve you.  Second, we will provide a proof of all individual awards for your approval before engraving (excluding team trophy orders).  This will give you the option to make revisions to both the text as well as the layout of your award.  We will not proceed with your order until you are satisfied and have given your final approval.  Third, communication is crucial when dealing with custom products and services. We welcome your questions and comments and are always ready to help.  Please call us toll-free or This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it so that we can make sure your needs are fulfilled.

Please type each engraved line of text in the order you would like it to be read.  In the case of multiple awards, you do not need to rewrite the unchanged text for each award.  Simply denote the variable text and include a list with the layout (see examples below).  If desired, you may also include any specific instructions such as preferred orientation (portrait or landscape), fonts, emphasized text, etc.  Our talented staff will create a proof for your approval based on your information, the type of award and our design experience.
