About Gift Engraving

Gift Engraving is where the old world meets the new. The art of old fashioned hand engraving skills and service meeting internet technology. You can purchase a special gift online, have it hand engraved or Laser Engraved and posted out to you anywhere in Australia with a minimum of fuss . Gift Engraving services are especially appropriate for those living in rural and remote areas who simply don't have the time to drive hours to the city, buy a gift, locate a professional engraver before having to drive home and of course then to return to pick it up. Laurie has personally sourced a selection of fine quality gifts and jewellery  which he knows to successfully hand-engrave. This takes much of the guesswork out of gift shopping when engraving is required.
