Yes, you can. Just select the logo/artwork option from the first drop-down menu. Upload your artwork from your machine to our system (see drawing below). Regarding your provided artwork: We do not engrave photos & hand drawn artworks. Additionally, you must be the copyright owner or have written permission from the copyright owner or business of any provided logo or artwork. Submitted artwork must be 600 dpi minima.

5. Do you provide artwork?

Unfortunately, we no longer offer this service

6. You offer "Laser" and "Diamond" engraving, what's the difference?
A laser can be select to engrave the handle or mark the blade. Laser burns the wood handle and leaves a dark mark that is very noticeable. This solution is by far the most popular. Laser marking can also be achieved on the blade. This solution will leave a black mark on the blade, and no metal is removed from the blade. The result is the same as the marking found on most large kitchen knives. ( see our portfolio for examples)

Diamond engraving can only be performed on the blade. This engraving solution will be your best choice if you want to have a more classic and "discreet" engraving.

7. I need a large amount of personalized items for my employees, can I get a discount?  

Yes, If you need more the eight knives or corkscrews we can help! Just complete our corporate application here, and we will reach out to you.

8. What are the difference between "Initials" and Monograms"? 

A traditional 3-letter monogram has the initial of the individual's last name (surname) set larger and centered while the first name initial appears to the left of it and the middle name initial appears to the right of it. For example, if the individual's name is Mary Ann Jones, and Jones is the surname/last name, then the arrangement of letters would be "MJA" with the last name/surname initial set larger in the center. The M for Mary to the left and the A for Ann to the right.

Initial are simply three letters of the same size place in this order: First name, middle name, last name.
