Using the year book pictures for the name tags at a Reunion is a unique and nostalgic way of sparking conversation and recalling the good old times.  This idea can also be done on a button style as well. Some helpful tips for making a successful name tag for a reunion are:  The name tag should be large and in a distinct colour so it stands out. Make sure you use a readable font, so people can see it from a distance and it's highly recommend to have a yearbook picture on the name tag. We at Badge Maker's & Kelowna Engravers hope you found this helpful.

A memorial wall is a wall typically engraved to commemorate deceased people that have passed ways from the same thing. Someone's passing can be a very sad time in one's life and it's important to have a place to show your loved ones that you still care. And it's important for the people that are still alive to have a place to go to and pay their respects to and more importantly a place to remember the good times and to feel at peace. The photo was taken in Lake Country and the engraving work done by Kelowna Engravers. Please contact us if you are wanting more information on engraving for memorial walls.

Putting your best towards something and accomplishing it is so rewarding. And for some people there is no better way than to recognize that accomplishment than an over sized trophy sitting on your mantel! When you see someone's trophy you instantly know that they have achieved something great in that field and for children it's even more rewarding for them when they receive recognition for their achievements.

Spring is here, love is in the air and brides are madly planning for their upcoming weddings.  Here at Badge Maker's & Kelowna Engravers we have spent many years helping with engraving for not only wedding favours but gifts for the families and wedding parties.  Personalised wedding favours are an excellent way to ensure that the gift you give your guests at your wedding will always remind them of your special day and the time you spent together. And even more amazing is to individually personalize each wedding favour with each guest's names or initials to make your wedding gift truly unique and memorable. 

Last month I found out the official world for boards that have chesses and meats presented on them, it's called a Charcuteries board. This sounds more appetising than a bread board, cheese board, or cutting board, which by the way we engrave on all of those, but Badge Maker's & Kelowna Engravers got to have some fun engraving some personalise Charcuterie Boards for Pilgrim & Pearl.  The wood Pilgrim & Pearl had made into Charcuteries Boards had some great character to them and with the combination of the engraving turned out amazing.

It's that time of year again and you might be struggling on what to get everyone in the work place for Christmas.  Engraving is a great way to personalize those corporate gifts.  If you want something with a real personal touch, then we recommend engraving the recipient's name on it, gift ideas like flash lights and switchblade knifes have been great hits. And for the big corporations, engraving your logo on the gift is a must. The most popular corporate gifts that we see are, wine glasses, watches, clocks, and leather folios.  We hope you find what you need for your corporate gifts for 2014 and we are happy to help you with all your engraving needs.
