Fonts - We prefer to use Iowan font, we are able to use many fonts, although Paua engraving does not work with thin fonts. We normally let the engravers choose the best look but if you have a particular font you'd like please let us know. We can do a combination of Paua and plain engraving - eg: a date often looks better smaller and in plain engraving underneath a name space permitting.
Please note the number of letters will effect how big the name can be engraved
