Text Engraving

Dictionary entry of the word "Engraving".

"Writing means sharing. It's part of the human condition to want to share things - thoughts, ideas, opinions."
Paulo Coelho

About Text Engraving

Text engraving allows you to add meaningful content to your crafted fingerprint keepsake. With a message to remind you of your loved one whenever you look at the text. Eternity's Touch offers text to be engraved on many of our products.

Prepare Your Order for Text Engraving

We recommend that you take the time to think about the meaningful text you want to add to your crafted fingerprint keepsake. This involves just a few steps such as choosing your message, ensuring it will present well, and submitting it as part of your order.

Choosing Your Message

To choose your message, you should know our products recommended limitations. Most of our products, if they offer text engraving, allow 2 lines, 10 characters each; or a monogram. Here are some sample messages people choose to engrave on our products.

  1. Dad / 1941-2009
  2. Mom / 1941-2009
  3. EDV - Mongoram
  4. Love / Always
  5. I will ♡ u / forever
  6. 1941 / 2009

You can choose one of these formats, or come up with one of your own. We support any unicode text - that means if you can type it, you can have it. This includes non-latin alphabets like cyrillic, chinese, arabic, and inuktitut.

If you are looking for something longer, consider looking at one of our Memory Tags or our Picture Frames; they can support a lot more text engraving than our average piece.

Choosing your Font

We offer two font styles for personalizing your fingerprint keepsakes. The Elegant Font and the Classic Font.

  1. Elegant Font | ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ | abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz | 1234567890Our Elegant Font
  2. Classic Font | ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ | abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz | 1234567890Our Classic Font

If you plan on using several capital letters together or if you are entering longer text, we recommend the classic font.

Important Recommendations

We have some additional recommendations about how to craft your message. These suggestions come from our years of experience making text look beautiful.

  1. Avoid long text.Be mindful of how much text you are adding. The longer the text, the more difficult it will be to read.
  2. Avoid uneven linesBreak up words to keep text even along the vertical. For example, avoid putting "I will love you" on one line, and "forever" on a seperate line.
  3. Avoid script font if all captials are used.If you are using all captials, consider using the Classic font instead.

Eternity's Touch takes great pride in ensuring all your text look great. Just keep these recommendations in mind when crafting your fingerprint keepsake.
