Each handmade Item can be engraved. I do not charge extra for engraving; however, since I have to out-source this particular service, I do pass on my cost from the engraver to the purchaser. This is $10.00 per item engraved.
Segmented pens made of a variety of different exotic and domestic woods are available upon request. Depending on the complexity, these may vary in price. Please ask about a specific design. The Exotic Mix pen is $35.00 and will be the least expensive segmented pen.
Engraved office nameplates with slots for pens and other items (usually a pen and letter opener) are available also.
