Known as The Fastest and Friendliest Event Lettering Experts in the South!
On-site engraving events and other experiential marketing activations are a powerful way to sell more inventory and provide your clients and guests with a beautiful gifting experience. Our on-site events are another way to keep your trade show booth interesting, fun and people tend to stay there longer. We provide custom engraving, embossing and calligraphy on-site for many companies including Whole Foods, Dior, Cisco, Nordstrom, Charlotte Tilbury, American Express, Bloomingdale’s, Hermés, Edgile, Saatchi & Saatchi, Lexus, Dillard’s, Macy’s, Céline and Saks Fifth Avenue as well as many marketing and event agencies who book us worldwide. Our clients happily drive many miles just wait in line to have their items personalized and follow our schedule very closely to find our next event. We travel all over the world and have been flown to places such as New York, Las Vegas, Orlando, Hilton Head, Los Angeles, Houston, Dallas and Egypt to bring our experiential marketing events to guests of all ages. (We also do private events such as birthdays, weddings and parties.) Please see our updated event calendar to check availability and then call us at 770 823 1673 to book our extensive talent.
Here is a video which shows how we emboss and personalize items at corporate events with our embossing machine.
Our clients also love our humor and conversation and know we care about each and every person we meet. We love to talk to people while we work!
Our work speed averages less than one minute per item. We engraved 268 wine glasses at Chateau Elan Vineyard Fest in four hours, that’s one less than every minute and there were no mistakes! We also embossed 1,400 books for Cisco in thee days, 8 hours non-stop per day. Again, one per minute. We’ll reach more of your clients in less time than any other company you hire.
We don’t waste time with unnecessary layouts before we engrave. We freehand our calligraphy perfectly every time. We are faster than most engravers, calligraphers and embossers because we have professional equipment and years of experience.
Customers Love Our Work
This guy was so excited about his swag at our recent Cisco booth, he agreed to do a video about it! Read more about how the lines for our booth wrapped around the site for three days straight. Our embossed notebook swag was the most popular offered at the Grace Hopper Celebration.
We offer on-site engraving events, monogramming, calligraphy and embossing events at major department stores and brands with wine, liquor, handbag, cosmetic, leather goods and perfume events 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, galas, 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!
Here’s a video of our engraving setup at Hermés in New York City where they all agreed we were the fastest engravers they’ve ever had in their store.
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 don’t take up much space.
A Business Case for On-Site Experiential Marketing Events
From a business perspective, an engraved or embossed item is significantly less likely to be returned, especially if the return policies are clearly stated. People also stay in your trade show booth longer to wait for their items which gives you more time to pitch and sell your products and services.
We don’t take up much space as you can see above. We can do a lot of engraving, calligraphy and embossing in a very short time giving you more sales and happy customers.
If companies offer FREE on-site engraving and embossing events, these are proven to be the most effective promotion for boosting sales and attracting repeat customers. Custom personalization offers customers a level of exclusivity 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 Design’s engravers are here,” said a director at Dillard’s. 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 To Book Our On-Site Event Services
Holiday events such as Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Thanksgiving, Valentine’s Day, Christmas, Hanukkah as well as new product launches, venue openings, weddings, film festivals, private and special events book quickly.
We strongly recommend booking our on-site engraving events as far in advance as possible, especially around the holidays. We suggest booking at least two months in advance.
How We Work
Our hourly rate is $150. We require a 4 hour minimum. A cancellation fee may apply if booking is canceled within 14 days of the event. Dates will not be held without a booking deposit of 50% of the total event fee. Keep in mind we are in Atlanta so travel fees including transportation, hotel and a $55 per day per diem apply to all out of state requests.
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.
