"I couldn’t recommend Gift Engraving enough! We ordered some pens online to present to staff acknowledging their years of service and when they arrived we couldn’t be happier. The pens were very high quality and the engraving is absolutely stunning. The service was fast and our pens were delivered in a matter of days. Laurie was also super helpful and prompt in any correspondence. We look forward to using Gift Engraving again.

"I just wanted to let you know how overly satisfied I am with how the engraving and delivery of the pen turned out. I only ordered the pen a couple of days ago and was expecting it to arrive sometime next week, however I came home from work to a pleasant surprise. Now there's no need to worry about being late with a gift for my boyfriend, thanks to your swift delivery! After seeing the pen personally, I'm sure he will absolutely love it.

"I received our order of the engraved parker pens today and just wanted to send you a note to say how delighted I was with the customer experience. Your site was very easy to use, it allowed me to purchase exactly the product I needed and in the quantity I needed. I’d spent a long time looking at larger commercial websites and found their services slow and inflexible. It was fantastic to be able to call you and get direct information regarding shipping times – and thank you again for organising an express delivery for us. I was astounded to get the order back within 2 days from purchase – it certainly took some stress out from arranging our conference gifts. The products and the engraving is of excellent quality; me and my team also loved the personal touch you took in interacting with us. We will definitely be back to use your services again.

"I wanted to buy a present for a work colleague who provided training to a group of work colleagues including myself, and I thought that a Sonnet Parker Pen engraved with a message from the group would be a great way to remember us. My colleagues searched online and found Gift Engraving, gave a call with Laurie who kindly assisted, I placed my order online and received a call back from the owner who was seeking the best outcome to meet my expectations as a client when it came to engraving my Sonnet Parker Pen. I'm highly satisfied with the experience and would highly recommend to give Gift Engraving a call to discuss what you'd like if it is offered.Thank you!!"

Hi Laurie,I just wanted to email you a quick note of thanks. I ordered an engraved pen off of you last Thursday, and was so pleasantly surprised to find it in my mailbox on Monday morning! Thank you so much for the quick service. And the engraving itself is absolutely gorgeous, I couldn't have asked for any better. It looks so much more personal and beautiful than the generic stuff you get from big companies. I can't wait until I get to give this gift! Thanks again, I will definitely be using your service again in the future whenever the need for engraving arises! Regards,Steph

I found the Gift Engraving website when I was looking for a gift that was useful but still special enough to be appreciated. I have ordered through Laurie on numerous occasions now and each and every time I am delightfully impressed with not only the finished product but also the helpful and efficient service. The gifts are beautifully presented and carefully packaged and delivered to my door quicker than you could imagine. I would not hesitate to recommend Gift Engraving to anyone chasing a unique gift that will be treasured for a lifetime."

Hi Laurie, just wanted to write you a quick e-mail to say thank you. I can’t believe the speed with which you were able to deliver, I expected it would take much longer considering the quality of the engraved pen that I received! The pen itself is beautiful and stylish and the engraving is elegant; I have no doubts my CEO will be overjoyed when he receives it. Thank you so much for the care you clearly take with your business and I will definitely be returning to you my any future engraving needs I have, regards Ciaran"

I recently had 42 Leatherman Multi-tools delivered as part of a corporate gift package which included personalised engraving on each one and from the time I first enquired right through to the delivery Laurie’s service was second to none. I was very impressed with the images supplied pre-order which overlaid the artwork on the tools and this made the decision that much easier to decide to use Laurie’s service. They were very competitive on price as well and the packaging and delivery was first class, even all the way to Perth. Thank you Laurie and I wouldn’t hesitate to use Gift Engraving again.

Susan Chuck

I was recommended to Laurie Ernst by a commercial engraver in Cairns as I needed a very personal and highly emotional job engraved on a sterling silver bracelet. Not only was the job executed beautifully but also Laurie was considerate enough to carry out the job the same day as I live on the Atherton Tablelands. His service was prompt, professional, courteous and friendly.I would highly recommend Laurie to all my friends and associates.

Tim Hilcke
Ormeau QLD 

" I recently purchased some ball point pens (3) as gifts for two people, I had wanted them engraved for that personal touch, Upon using web searches I found a lot of large "Industrial" firms that could handle my request but I could not decide on one of the many company's I was faced with. I have had some hand engraving done previously many years ago (Shopping centre "key-cut" franchise) and I was not at all happy with the finished product, so I was also specifically looking for computer engraved work this time. I had honestly given up when the last search page I was to try was Laurie Ernst "Gift Engraving", the gallery of this craftsman certainly caught my eye, and his workmanship is all done by hand! Wow! if only I had known of his services many years ago, Yes I was looking for computer engraved but being a tradesman myself if this man can produce works of art as seen on his web page he was certainly worth to make contact with, the next problem I thought would be do I need to sit down to hear the price? So I hear you ask....$$$, for hand produced one of a kind's, VERY reasonable, what price is priceless?... Laurie's customer service is equal to or better than the product this great artist produces every day, I received prompt responses from Laurie, and he is more than willing to accommodate and answer all of my requests. So Monday I expressed mailed my task off to Laurie all the way to sunny Cairns. I received an e-mail letting me know they had arrived, Thursday morning the postman had the return package that I had to double check but it was the return satchel I had sent, finished and completed, and now I will say the quality of this craftsman is BETTER than any computer can or will do, and the gallery on Laurie's site tells no lie, I cannot praise enough the workmanship that was produced and the customer SERVICE is second to none, any future engraving of mine will only be completed by one person by hand in sunny Nth. QLD. Laurie you are a true credit to your profession and I cannot speak highly enough of the overall experience. 11/10 on all counts, you will not be disappointed, HIGHLY recommended . REGARDS TIM H."

" I have to say I was confident Laurie would do a good job from the start, and I knew asking for something in Russian wouldn't be the easiest of jobs. But Laurie far far exceeded my expectations and he was extremely professional but could have a good laugh with you at the same time. His eye for detail and what works and what doesn't is amazing. I would recommend him to anyone wanting a professional and outstanding job done. I cannot express how impressed I am with my overall experience with Laurie. Thanks again."

"Having searched Australian sites for the best price on a Leatherman "Surge" Multitool I found the cheapest price to be from "GiftEngraving in Cairns.I am very happy with my purchase and would say that Laurie is a terrific bloke to deal with and helpful in the extreme. He will be the first one I look to for future purchases of this nature.!"

Joan Murday
Mossman QLD 

"My husband inherited a gold Cyma watch which had been presented to his father in 1960 upon his retirement.  As we wanted to pass the watch on to a family member I was at a loss to know how to restore the engraving on the back of the watch case, which was made of 9ct. gold and had virtually worn smooth.  I was lucky enough to have been recommended to Laurie Ernst who learned his trade as an apprentice to  the jeweller Tom McDonald of Cairns some years ago.  Laurie’s expertise at engraving has restored the watch case back to its original glory.  

Michael Tuck
Noosa QLD 

"A true craftsman in a possibly dying art? I have 2 signet rings which were previously engraved it would now appear, by a machine. The work was not what I had in mind at all and very disappointing. Laurie was able to polish out the original work and re-do it by hand to my satisfaction. Not only did he fix the rings he called me to pick up well before my expectations and made a special effort on all occasions due to my travel. Beautiful work, great service and a pleasure to deal with. .  

Renae Lofthouse

All items that have been given to Laurie for engraving have been returned in the same condition with the appropriate engraving . I have never had any issues with drop off and collection of the items as he is very flexible and he always completes the engraving task on time. I would highly recommend his engraving services to anyone else looking for this particular service."
