History of Engraving

How it all came to be…

The ancient Romans saw personal engravings as a status symbol and the upper class nobility often held precious and semi-precious gems with specialized inscriptions or images as prized possessions. Thousands of years later the world is a much different place but human nature, and even taste, is relatively unchanged. Today, in a culture of mass production, we seek ways to make gifts, heirlooms and other cherished objects unique and personally precious. At Herrings Engraving & Jewelry Repair – Engraving San Antonio, a business with more than 30 years of experience creating exclusive and personal engravings, nearly anything from jewelry and other metals to glass and plastic objects can be engraved with a personal message for the perfect gift, or simply for private satisfaction.

Engravings offer a nearly endless variety of possibilities; if you can imagine it you can engrave it.

Gifts carry more meaning and events a deeper resonance when specialized for the person or occasion. Wedding rings are a notable example, as many consider tying the knot to be the experience of a lifetime. The rings are a symbolic representation of perpetual union, so it is no wonder the newlyweds would want to add extra emphasis to them. A ring with a special phrase (imagine ‘Amor vincit omnia’ Latin for love conquers all) place even more weight to the significance of the occasion.

This is stating the obvious, most are well aware of jewelry engravings and likely have either had a ring or watch engraved or received one for a gift. The real wonder behind engravings isn’t the commonplace but the truly unique. Personalize knives, zippo lighters, wine glasses, plaques, trinkets or even add a few ancient runes to that sword your wife has been trying to force you to get rid of for years. Now it will be an extra special piece ready for display; something guests will find interesting and distinctive. It doesn’t have to be for a certain occasion; even plastic coated objects like high end electronics can be made into a personalized object with an engraving. Engravings are not limited to words and phrases alone, but intricate images can also be added to the item of your choice. Copy a photograph of a loved one onto a plague in honor of their memory. An exhaustive list of the possibilities is unthinkable.

Imagine a special event is less than 24 hours away and the gift you meant to have engraved for a friend slipped your mind until then. Luckily Herrings Engraving & Jewelry Repair – Engraving San Antonio has an impressive turnaround time, as many of the customers will confirm. But speed is not an indicator of lack of quality, each engraving is expertly done and of superb craftsmanship; the images or other work will speak for themselves. To add real meaning and one-of-a-kind appeal to almost anything there isn’t a more eloquent or expressive practical option than an engraving.

I prefer to do quality engraving over a quantity of engraving. I will stop taking in ALL jobs by 4PM on Friday December 22nd 2017!   ~Glenn P. Herring~

Fill out the form below and select a time that you will arrive. This will ensure that I am ready and available to discuss your project when you arrive on time. I actually prefer a drop-in or phone call to an email. You will still have to come by to get an accurate quote.

Please be as descriptive as possible, You have at least 300 characters to use in the description box. While I do appreciate a succinct description, It must be accurately described.

I don’t want to see “I’ve got this thing I want engraved… How much is that?” I engrave many types of items, although I’ve seen many things, Without a detailed description. I can’t help. For example: (Mr. Herring, I have a Michael Kors watch model #MK-8215 watch. I’d like to say… “To My Sweet Pea with Love, Your Sugar Muffin 12-25-17” engraved on the back.) That, I can estimate. What is the specific item? What do you want engraved? How many do you have?

The point is… If I have to be exact in my work… I need ALL the information up front. In this very busy season, I don’t have time to guess what you need. Tell me… If I can do it, it will be done well.

As a final note… 50% to 80% of the items I engrave, need to be seen in person. I can not, figure out how to engrave something until I can see the particular dimensions of it.

Thank You for Your Time & God Bless You,

Glenn P. Herring
