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. 

Lamacoids, Valve Tags, Data Plates, Pipe Markings and Serial Number Tags are used for identification, traceability and safety.  These industrial markings can come in a wide range of materials, for example acrylic, stainless steel, brass and more. We can custom cut and build all types of laser engraved panels, fitting all types of switches, gauges and pushbutton enclosures. We can also engrave your company logo on it.

Badge Maker's and Kelowna Engravers had a great December and we owe a big THANK YOU to our great local customers here in the Okanagan Valley.  We had the pleasure of working on many fun projects, one was laser cutting cardboard for Four Spoons, the picture to the left made it to the front page of the news paper. Check out Four Spoons website if you are a gluten free fan. Thank you to all our customers for a wonderful 2014 and we hope that every one achieves their goals for 2015. 

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.  

Here at Badge Maker's and Kelowna Engravers we are proud to support and promote "Movember". I came across these four rules for Movember that you might find interesting. 1. You must begin the 1st of Movemeber with a clean shaven face. 2 for the entire month of Movemeber you must grow and groom a moustache. 3 Don't fake it. No beards and no goatees. 4. Use the power of the moustache to create conversation about men's health and raise awareness and funds for prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health. Here is to supporting the men in our lives.

Here we are again, election time.  It's time to educate ourselves on the topics that matter most to you and do the responsible thing and vote.  Some people die over the right to vote in other countries and lots of us here in Canada don't care enough to vote.  So we should take some responsibility for our community and vote.But on a lighter note the employees here at Badge Maker's and Kelowna Engravers just wanted to send a thank you out to the campaigners that support their local business. Thank You! 

Out with the old and in with the new. It's almost time to see the brand new Kelowna Yacht Club. The name badges have changed, the logo has changed but it's still in the beautiful sunny Okanagan.  The team at Badge Maker's and Kelowna Engravers is looking forward to working with the Yacht Club with their future projects. We believe in delivering quality and reliable serve, that our community can depend on.

If you are looking for a durable outdoor finish, engraving and sandblasting are great options to implement.  The Okanagan summers and winters can be hard on other finishes. The bell seen in the picture on the left, was sandblasted for a ferry. Sandblasting can be done on the following services; rock, glass and metal.    

This plaque for the UBC Okanagan Aboriginal Programs & Services is very striking, with the contrast of wood and acrylic this plaque provides a 3 dimensional surface.  It also literally stands out with the use of stand offs, these are a new and modern accent to display plaques and signs.
