About Us


Personalised wooden memory & keepsake boxes, photographs and so much more!


If you are looking for quality engraved gifts then you have come to the right place! Whether you want personalised pen sets, engraved photographs or our lovely personalised keepsake boxes for a special gift. We engrave each item individually to your specific requirements at our shop in Sidmouth so you get just what you want!

We are a family run business and we pride ourselves on going that little bit further than other companies, so please don't be afraid to ask for what you really want. If it can't be done then we'll tell you, but you would be amazed at what we can do! All photos on this site are of things that we have engraved - they are there to show you what can be done, but don't feel limited by them - feel free to choose the layout from one with the words from another etc, or make up a totally new design. All of our products are individually engraved and are made to the highest standards. We have the ability to engrave photographs as well as text and logos. We can deliver any of our items anywhere within the country. Text can be engraved in any of the fonts listed on our site, or if you want another specific one then the chances are we have it in our collection of thousands. If you have any questions then please do feel free to contact us.

We specialise in our hard-wood keepsake boxes and treasure chests which make the ideal present for that special occasion (Wedding Boxes, Baby Boxes, Christening Boxes, or that special Birthday) and photographs engraved onto wood and glass, but we also offer a large range of other items. Please feel free to contact us if you have any question. Payments are secure through Paypal and Nochex, or if you prefer you can send us a cheque.

We also engrave our items to make the perfect wedding present - such as a clock with a photo of the bride and groom, a lovely wedding keepsake box, a personalised wedding photo album, a personalized photo frame, or an engraved picture.

For any order placed on the internet we will email you a design proof (if you would like) to check that the layout is exactly what you want. If it isn't we'll be happy to make any changes and send back them to you for approval. Feel free to choose from our large selection of graphics to add to your design, or if you prefer send us any other graphics to add to your design, but bear in mind that they must be monochrome (black and white rather than shades of grey) to allow them to be engraved.

All of our items are engraved with a carbon dioxide laser. This focuses 40 Watts of power onto an area approximately 1/50th mm across. The result is that the wood is vaporised, but the surrounding wood is left untouched. By careful control of the speed that the laser moves and the power that a pulse is created with it is possible to either remove just the top lacquer from a piece of wood, cut right through it, or anything in between. Different woods need to be engraved at different power and speed settings because they each have different densities and differences between the hard and soft grains of the wood.


When a laser is used to engrave on glass something else happens. The glass is not evaporated in the same way as with wood but the intense difference in the localised temperature causes tiny particles to be chipped from the surface leaving a frosty white engraving.
