Product Highlight – Personalized Daddy Key Chain

Check out our personalized key chain, made just for that special dad in your life! You only have a few more days to order if you want to get it in time for Father’s Day.

The keychain is made with a 1.25 inch aluminum pendant on a stainless steel key ring. Hand stamped in the center is the word “Daddy” in a script font. Around the edge is where the names of his children are stamped around the edge in a block style font. There is room for up to 38 letters and spaces, this includes bullets between the names if there are more than two. If you’d like the word “Love” as shown in the sample, please count the letters in it toward the 38 that will fit. The keychain is given a brushed finish to complete the look.

As with our other hand stamped items, each character is individually placed by hand. The letters will not always line up perfectly, and some may be stamped deeper than others. This is part of the charm of hand stamped lettering, and will still need to pass our close inspection for highest quality.

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.

 

And We’re Off!

We’re looking toward the Holiday season this year with some new things on our site…

We updated our website template. Now it’s easier than ever to use.

We’re blogging again. :) We’ve also given the blog a mini facelift.

We’re in the process of updating all our photos again. We’re really excited about the new pictures since they seem to really make the silver pop off the screen.

We were accepted into Handmade at Amazon! SO EXCITED ABOUT THIS!

We also have some new fonts and new designs in the works!

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.

My workspace

Here’s a peek into my workspace.  I would call it a studio, but since it’s on the side of our living room, I guess it doesn’t qualify. :)

Here are my stamps.  They’re arranged by font, size, and type.

There are a couple more sets put away that aren’t requested as often too.

This is where I do the majority of my work.  My husband put the pegboard up for me a few weeks ago and I absolutely love it.  It is so much more convenient to have everything accessible.

The other end of the desk has my printer and a few of the tools that are too big to be put away elsewhere.

Catching up on orders

Wow – the Thanksgiving Weekend Sale was a huge success! Thank you! The last of those orders went out in today’s mail.

Now the big project on my desk is finishing everyone’s Christmas orders. They have been so fun to work on. I love seeing how everyone chooses to personalize their jewelry.

I’ve also been making more than just jewelry lately. Guitar picks are a new addition to the shop. They have been selling almost as fast as I can list them.

What do you think? I’m not sure which is my favorite. I like all three metals, but the silver-filled is probably my favorite of the three picks.
