Engraved Pens for Personalised Gifts

Engraved pens make a wonderful gift for both men and women. The pen is practical and useful to almost everyone and the engraving makes the gift meaningful and special. It is particularly great for writers as a writing gift.

When you select a pen for engraving, it is tempting to select a well-known and expensive brand such as Cross or Waterman. However, lesser known brands can also be good quality pens and make excellent engraved gifts at a lower cost.

Types of Engraved Pens

Different materials produce different engraving effects. Engraved Pens with a lacquer finish, such as black pens, have a color varnish that coats the body of the pen. Under the coating, the pen is usually a brass colour. When engraved, the lacquer is removed to reveal the pen's surface, thus, the engraving is in a gold or silver color and stands out very clearly against the black background. However, the engraving may not match the pen's trim. Other types of personalised pen gifts made of steel, solid silver, and solid chrome pens are engraved directly onto the penís surface and can look quite elegant. If the surface is brushed, however, the engraving may not stand out clearly against the background. In addition, stainless steel is a hard surface and does not produce a very strong or deep engraving finish.

Pen Size and Surface Area for Engraving

When choosing a pen for engraving, keep in mind the message you want to engrave and the size of the font you prefer. A chunky pen is more suitable to a longer message or a bigger font, such as Engraved Green Sporty Pen. You will have less available space if you select a slimline ballpoint pen or fountain pen.

Typically, pens are engraved horizontally down the length of the pen barrel. However, it is possible to engrave around the barrel as well.

Choose Fonts for Legibility

Most engraving machines today use computerised laser technology with pinpoint accuracy to engrave pens Ė this is the same for WeddingGifts2U and the engraved pens we offer. The engravable area is defined with a guidable laser and then translated to the computer screen. Most engraving machines have a large range of fonts available from fancy, decorative fonts to classic Roman, as well as a wide range of other font sizes. If you want to message to be read, be sure to select a legible font and the largest size possible for the area. For small font sizes, avoid fancy scripts and complicated lettering. Also consider how many characters you would like to appear, generally 23 characters on one line is the maximum engraving space on many personalised pen gifts.

If you take the time to select the right pen for engraving, you can be sure your engraved pen gift will be treasured for many years to come.
