Product Highlight – It is Well with My Soul Money Clip

A classic hymn is quoted on this aluminum money clip. “It is well with my soul” has been hand stamped on the front of the clip. It makes a great Father’s Day gift, birthday present, or a gift for your groomsmen.

 

 

The clip is one inch wide and about 2 1/2 inches long after forming. The aluminum is sturdy, which has the benefit of being nice and light, but remains strong enough to hold its shape.

Remember that with our items that are hand stamped each character is individually placed. It will have to meet our exceptional standards, but will not be perfect.

Product Highlight – Brass Engraved Guitar Pick

We have the perfect gift or the musical man in your life. You can use our wording or personalize it with your own message.

Our engraved guitar pick is brass and the standard size. The letters are left undarkened and sparkle in the light. The pick is then given a smooth, brushed finish.

Please enter your personalization in the box when you place your order. If you don’t specify otherwise, we will engrave “Couldn’t pick a better Dad” like our sample pictured above.

Product Highlight – Deer Money Clip

Father’s Day will be here before we know it. I know, I know… it isn’t even Mother’s Day yet! This is a catchy little money clip for that special dad in your life. It is hand stamped with the words “For all the cash my dear didn’t take.” And of course, it would not be complete without the outline of the deer stamped on it.

This clip is made of sturdy aluminum to hold up to daily use but light weight. It is 1 inch wide and 2 1/2 inches long after forming.

Customer Feedback

Customer feedback is always such a fun thing to read, especially when they’re thrilled with the items they ordered.

A couple weeks ago, a bride contacted me and asked me to rush a couple of tie bars to Disneyland for her wedding. After she got home, she sent me a link to her photographer’s site so that I could see pictures. It looks like it was such a beautiful wedding, and it was an honor to be able to help make a small part of it.

Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month

October is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month.

This month, remember those who have lost little ones. Even something as simple as a hug can be an encouragement. Remember those babies. Acknowledge their child. Love on the parents. Let them know that you remember too. To them, it may feel that everyone else has forgotten.

Use the month of October as a reminder to remember those babies and their families.
