Mistake #1: Getting The Details Wrong
Nothing says I do not care' like spelling your receiver's name wrong or obtaining the facts of the award incorrect. Your engraver will use whatever text you supply him with so be certain that you have the right information. Double-check all of the spellings, but notably the receiver's name.
Mistake #2: Selecting An Unreadable Font
There are literally thousands of fonts out there. Since everyone uses a computer, they are accustomed to having these fonts in their fingertips and they believe they will need to use elaborate, decorative fonts for all.
Mistake #3: Hiring An Engraver Who Is Not Experienced In Engraved Crystal Awards
Engraved crystal awards take a different touch than metal. Metal is a much harder surface, meaning it is somewhat more forgiving than glass. Glass engraving typically uses a laser to etch the surface, whilst metal engraving uses a unique rotary instrument or another handheld tool.
Mistake #4: Sending Engraved Crystal Awards To A Gadget Shop
Jewelry stores are a few of the most frequently found engraving sites, but it doesn't mean they're the best choice when it is time to engrave items. Jewelry stores typically do not have someone in-house to finish these jobs and instead send them out to be accomplished.
