Machine Engraving Recommendations

Cups and Bowls: Baby Cups, Jefferson Cups, Tankards, and Revere Bowls

All styles/fonts are engraveable. When engraving a cup with a handle, make sure to specify which direction the handle will be facing (left or right). The engraver will use their best judgement for the size of the engraving unless advised otherwise.


We recommend engraving porringers on the sides so the engraving can be seen if the porringer is intended for use. If the porringer is to be engraved on the inside, most people prefer the handle to be straight up (in the 12 o'clock position), or with the handle to the left or right. Also, most porringers have one initial engraved on the handle. Please indicate to us your preferences.

Plates, Trays, and Boxes

All styles are engraveable.

Pendants, Brooches, and Lockets

All styles are engraveable, however, please let us help you determine if there is enough space on the specific item you are ordering for the requested engraving.

Signet Rings and Rings

Monograms or a single initial are most common for signet rings. We can only engrave block text in the inside of wedding bands.


Most c-bands or cuff bracelets can only be engraved on the inside. Wide bracelets without a curve or design on the top may be engraveable on the outside. The maximum amount of characters we can accommodate is 25, including spaces. We do not recommend engraving monograms, but all other styles are engraveable.
