If you need a gift for that person who has everything.... this may be the answer for you! We were recently running some acrylic on the laser and Dan produced a few of these interesting machines. See the video for more information.  Custom engraving  is included. Some ideas: "Flip switch for customer service", Turn on to keep an Executive busy" or anything you want! We have black only for $59, including custom engraving.  These come fully assembled and ready to go. They are 5 1/2 x 2 1/2 x 4" We can also do, you assemble, kits for Scout or School projects for a discount. (min 4 per order)
If you have not figured out what this machine does, it's only purpose is to turn itself off! It is way fun! Put one of these on your desk at work and see what happens!

Have a great week!

As everyone settles in for a nice hot Carolina summer please remember us, your friendly engravers! As you can tell from browsing this blog, we do more than just engrave. We can do full color on many objects as well as customized products from your Logo or text. I have attached one example of a job we completed for a local carpenter. These are engraved onto aluminum and will last outdoors for years without fading. If you can dream it up we can probably find a product and a process to make it for you. Drop us a line with your idea or use one of ours. Any gift giving from weddings to birthdays will be made more exciting by giving customized pieces. Everyone appreciates the extra effort.

Thanks! Have a Great Summer!

Tell your kids sport's coaches about us!

We hope everyone had a great day with their families yesterday. One of the sections of this blog is the coaches corner. It has specials for many sports and all others are available by calling us. If you have ever looked closely at the trophies your kids have won you will find they vary in quality (due to budgets) but also something else. Many are generic. They are not personalized with your child's name! They appear to have be given as an after thought. We custom make every plate with each person's name. We also, in many packages, provide a customized dog tag for the participant to wear. Hey, no one carries their trophies around with them! So tell the coaches in your world about us. Have them head over to or just give us a call. We will do quality, on time work for every customer.

Have a great day!

PS: Father's Day is Sunday, June 19th. Order something special now! He won't have anything like it and will not get the same gift as everyone else!

Watercraft Numbers

We sell these in a variety of colors. Our turnaround is usually pretty quick for pick up. We can also mail to you and charge only what it costs us to do so. Sample fonts in the product pics. Colors available there as well. You can see copies of both North and South Carolina's posting requirement laws at the right. Give us a call if you need some. (You can use Pay Pal at the bottom of the home page to pay if that is convenient)

Below are the instructions to easily install your numbers in one piece.

When first opening your letters, you may notice that there are bubbles between the layers of the substrates, especially if they have been stored in a hot place. This is perfectly normal, and they will subside as the letters return to room temperature. Allow the letters to lay flat as they cool. They are ready to apply when they lay flat without any pressure.

1)    *  When applying your decals to your watercraft, work slowly and be patient!

2)   *   Carefully remove the white protective layer, making sure each part of each letter stays stuck to the translucent backing.

3)     * Line up your letters against your watercraft and working from one end to the other, press the letters and the backing onto the hull.

4)     * Smooth the letters onto the hull using a plastic putty knife or a credit card.

5)      *Try to get out as many bubbles as possible, however, stop short of tearing or stretching the vinyl to remove a bubble. Small air pockets will naturally work their way out over the next few days as the watercraft gets warm in the sun and cools at night.


If you hit either of our older websites at Race City Awards or TCR engraving and graphics you were brought here automatically. This business blog site will be where we update all of our samples and our special's flyers. You can contact us directly from here or just give us a call. We look forward to helping you with all of your computer repair, awards and engraving needs!
