Far East Engravers is a fantastic local business owned by a former U.S. Marine, employing Okinawan citizens. I use this company to engrave many different forms of glassware, wood, and they even do ink printing on cork. On their Facebook page, Far East Engravers showcases a range of the types of products that they offer, from framing and engraving military awards and going away gifts, to customized Awamori sets or crystal port decanters.
I have been very impressed with the high level of customer service and prompt turnaround on my engraving orders. I have ordered cell phone cases, kitchen hot pads, cigar cases, whiskey/wine/champagne glasses, beer mugs, kitchen containers, and more, all at a very competitive price. They always have my order ready on time.
I even had to place a rush order, and the owner stayed late at night to complete my order for me by the next day! I am not suggesting that you ask him to do that, but I was deeply impressed by his commitment to his business, and his willingness to meet my needs as a customer.
If you need ideas for going away gifts, or anniversary presents, they have a catalog for you to see many different samples. The friendly staff is also willing to offer suggestions and help with product design. I highly recommend Far East Engravers for any custom engraving needs.
