Hi there, everyone!

Since I see a lot of online stores advertising free engravings with their pens, I was wondering--is there anywhere that you can send a pen, after buying it, to have it engraved?

I know it would lower the resell value of the pen--but I don't feel that I will be selling the particular pen I have in mind anytime soon, and I love the idea of adding a little history to it! :)

Here in Italy this service is available at jewelries, shop selling stamps, and shops selling cups and prizes in general.

Most jewelery stores will do engraving and there is a store called Things Remembered in a bunch of malls in SoCal that does engraving.

Thanks for your answers! :) I will have to check out my nearest jewelry store and ask.

 

It would also be cool to know if anyone has engraved a faceted pen--one pen I am considering engraving is eighteen-faceted on the cap and barrel. I wonder if this would make engraving more difficult?

 

Thanks!!
