About Gift Engraving

Prior to Brad and Jodie Butler purchasing the Gift Engraving Business, it was run by a Gentleman Laurie Ernst. Laurie Ernst began his 4- year apprenticeship in fine jewellery engraving in 1973 at Tom McDonald's Jewellers under the guidance of the Master Hand Engraver Jack Clarke and has been honing his talents ever since. Gift Engraving is the culmination of over 47 years experience in the hand-engraving/ jewellery trade for Laurie, having engraved for state and federal politicians, the Defence Force, emergency services, and the general public, all from his studio in Cairns, North Queensland Australia . He has engraved for a myriad of high-profile special events such as national game fishing tournments, photographic and sailing awards, corporate presentations , engagements, weddings, christenings, and graduations and endeavours to provide his renowned high-quality standard of service and product to all customers throughout Australia via the Gift Engraving website. Jodie and Brad are honored to continue Laurie's business for the years to come and hope to give the same quality products and customer service as he has for the past years. Laurie continues to do a small amount of custom hand engraving from his studio but has taken a step back to concentrate on his passion for music.
