On-site Engraving Events are a powerful way to sell more inventory and provide your clients with beautiful gifts. We engrave wine bottles and fragrance bottles at no charge when we are on-site with companies like Whole Foods, Bloomingdale’s, Chateau Elan, Dillard’s, Macy’s, Stella Artois, Celine and Saks Fifth Avenue. We also monogram and emboss leather on-site and provide on-site calligraphy. See our schedule below or call us at 770 509 8797!
We offer on-site engraving, monogramming and embossing events at major department stores and brands with wine, liquor, handbag, cosmetic and perfume events including Neiman Marcus, Dillard’s, Macy’s, Whole Foods, Pottery Barn, Kilian Fragrances, Saks Fifth Avenue, etc. to promote their products during special events, product launches and holidays year round. We engrave on-site and in-store at specialty gift stores, golf tournaments, craft beer breweries, weddings, wine and liquor stores, wineries, festivals, auctions, crystal and glass companies, corporate bookings, golf courses, country clubs and more. Your guests will experience a super custom, high-end experience they’ve never seen before!
The idea of receiving a personalized gift item attracts customers to your product events in a way no other service can. The limited engagement of our services gives potential customers a sense of urgency to buy now so as not to miss this exclusive opportunity.
All we need is a table, a couple of chairs and an electrical outlet (we have our own generator if you don’t have electricity available). We don’t take up much space. We’re very friendly and we love interacting with guests of all ages.
Business Case for On-Site Engraving Events
From a business perspective, an engraved purchase is significantly less likely to be returned, especially if the return policies are clearly stated.
We don’t take up much space as you can see above. We just need a table and a chair. Some people have called us the fastest engravers in Atlanta! We can do a lot of engraving in a very short time giving you more sales and happy customers.
If companies offer FREE on-site engraving events, these are proven to be the most effective promotion for boosting wine or fragrance sales and attracting repeat customers. Custom engraving offers customers a level of personalization that simply cannot be achieved by any other offer or promotion, including gift-with-purchase offers, free greeting cards, tote bags or cosmetic samples in boosting sales. On average, we see over 25% increase of repeat sales during these events. We’ve had customer wait to see us at our events and buy 20 bottles of wine just so they could have them engraved FREE at the event! Our customers literally follow us to each event which means we bring you even more business.
Sales staff report amazing results when Inkwell Designers is on the floor with them. “The perfume sells itself when Inkwell engravers are here,” said a director at Saks Fifth Avenue. We really know how to “WOW!” your customers.
We travel extensively in the United States and around the world to deliver our engraving and embossing experience to a myriad of brands. We also do private events such as weddings, birthdays and bar/bat mitzvahs. We can do approximately 200-300 events per year.
How We Work at In-Store Engraving Events
A typical custom engraving transaction goes like this:
A salesperson rings up the sale and asks the customer to write the desired name or 5 – 7 word phrase on a sticky note we provide.
The engraver prepares the surface and conducts the engraving at the table.
- The engraver then finishes the work with either a gold, silver or rose gold finish.
The entire process takes 2-3 minutes to engrave a single name on an item.
Our elegant engraving studio, including our own lighting and takes up approximately 2 feet of counter space.
We ask our clients to furnish a sturdy table, a chair, and access to an electrical outlet. Our equipment is quiet and unobtrusive and will not interrupt the flow of customers.
Our most popular days for events are Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Thanksgiving, Valentine’s Day, Christmas, Hanukkah, new product launches, venue openings, weddings, film festivals, and special events.
We strongly recommend booking our on-site engraving and calligraphy events as far in advance as possible, especially around the holidays. We suggest booking at least one month in advance. Our hourly rate is $150. A cancellation fee may apply if booking is canceled within 14 days of the event.
With our extensive on-site engraving experience, we are uniquely positioned to create memorable on-site engraving events that will thrill as clients watch their gift be personalized with their name or message in calligraphy. We’ve had more than 450 people happily wait in line for our engraving. Please call us for options, pricing information, and scheduling at 770 509 8797 or click here to hire us!
