Pen Engraving Service

Engraving Service

We're pleased to offer a pen engraving service to complement your purchase, making your gift truly special. We use a computerised machine to produce your engraved pen, providing a pinpoint-accurate finish. Most pens are engravable, and are clearly marked with the 'can be engraved' symbol.


Engraving does not delay your order. Orders placed before 3pm during a working day will be despatched same day. This is because we engrave in-house with our own machines.

How does the Engraving Work?

We use a state of the art laser engraving machine which gently etches away the top layer of the pen to reveal the base metal underneath. Lacquered pens generally have a brass metal underneath, and will therefore have a gold finish. Silver pens on the other hand produce a two tone effect.

Each pen has a limit to the amount of characters we can engrave due to its size and curvature. Look out for the character limit on each product page. We offer 3 different fonts for engraving: Calibri, Roman and Italic. If you choose the Italic font, it is not recommended you choose an engraving message all in capital letters (other than initials). Roman however, is fine if you'd like your message all in capitals.

What can I engrave?

We can engrave any letter, number or character that can entered from a standard computer keyboard, in any language. This includes English, Arabic, Hebrew, Greek, Cyrillic etc.

We can engrave UTF8 symbols. Either choose from our list or copy and paste your own.

Each pen has a limit to the amount of characters we can engrave due to its size and curvature. Look out for the character limit on each product page. If you cant quite fit your message with the allowable characters, please call us and we will see what we can do.

How much does engraving cost?

The cost per pen engraving is £7.00. If you're buying a 2 pen set the cost of engraving is reduced to £10. If it's a 3 pen set the cost is £12.00.

Where is my message engraved?

Your message will be engraved on either the barrel or cap end. Please see engrave preview on the product page for the positioning.

If you require an engraving to specifically suit a left hander, please give us a call, and we can arrange this for you.


Can I see how my engraving will look before buying?

Yes. As you type in your message, you will be able to view how it will appear on your chosen pen. The message preview shows the approximate size, colour and position of the engraving. Please note that the preview is an indication, and exact results may vary.
