How To Make It Personal
There are a number of different ways you can add a sentimental touch to a wooden gift, and they all have their pros and cons. Carving by hand, using a router, or even etching are common methods, but the best method of personalisation, which is how we create our wooden gifts, has to be laser engraving. We use a Trotec laser engraving machine which allows us to create a wide range of personalised wooden products, from cherry wood engraved coasters to personalised walnut chopping boards.
What We Use
Although we can personalise pretty much any type of wooden gift, we like to stick to a handful of woods when we choose how to create our products. Our customised designs just look better on certain types woods, and we also try to source the highest quality sustainable materials for all of our products. You’ll find for many of our products such as our engraved wooden coasters and luggage tags, we use cherry wood, while for many of our personalised chopping boards, we use walnut.
What We Make
We make a wide range of customised wooden gifts, from luggage tags and engraved coasters, to personalised chopping boards and wooden keepsake boxes for many occasions. All products can be personalised to your own taste, and we even do completely custom orders if you had something original that you would like us to create for you, but to give you some inspiration, take a look at some our favourite laser engraved wooden gifts below!
