    Handwriting Jewelry FAQ

    Handwriting jewelry is a unique and sentimental way to cherish memories or messages from loved ones. Each piece is meticulously crafted, featuring handwriting or text laser engraved onto high-quality stainless steel charms.

    Our handwriting collection offers a variety of options, including multiple metal finishes, along with your choice of necklace, bracelet, or keyring.

    Stay tuned as we continue to expand our selection with even more customizable options to suit your individual style and preferences.

    How is Handwriting Jewelry Made?

    Curious about how we make your personalized jewelry? When you submit your handwriting sample, we first go to work creating a digital copy of your loved one's handwriting. 

    The first step in the process is to lighten up the background and darken the handwriting. We also remove anything in the sample that isn't meant for engraving - such as extra text or lines from a sheet of paper. 

    Next, we "trace" the handwriting using software called Adobe Illustrator. This prepares the final image for our engraving machine. During this stage, we may rearrange the text a bit to find the very best fit on the charm. 

    Finally, we open up the digitally created image in our engraving software, where it is sent to our laser engraver to complete the process. 

    The last few steps involve doing a quality check to ensure that the engraving is perfect, and adding the charm to your desired jewelry, whether that is a necklace chain, keyring or bracelet. 

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Q: Is the engraving on the charm permanent?

    Q: What materials are used for the charms?
    A: We use 316L stainless steel for both our charms and chains. Steel is widely considered hypo-allergenic, is resistant to tarnishing and won't turn skin green.

    Q: Is there a limit to the length of handwriting or text that can be engraved?
    A:  For best results, we recommend keeping the text short to ensure it remains legible and visually appealing. We find the best length for disc charms to be between 2-5 words. If you're unsure, feel free to reach out to our team for personalized guidance.

    Q: How do I submit the handwriting or text for engraving?
    A: You'll be prompted to upload your handwriting sample(s) on the product page. 

    Q: Can I preview what the engraving will look like before it's made?
    A: Yes, we offer a preview option for most orders, allowing you to see a digital mock-up of your charm with the chosen handwriting or text before it's engraved. Due to the time it takes to create these digital proofs, we charge a small fee of $3.00.

    Q: Is there a warranty or guarantee on the engraving quality?
    A: We stand behind the quality of our engraving work and offer a satisfaction guarantee.

    If you're not completely satisfied with the engraving quality or if there are any defects, please reach out to our customer service team, and we'll work to resolve the issue promptly.

    Q: Is it possible to engrave handwriting from multiple sources onto one charm?
    A: While we typically engrave handwriting from a single source onto each charm, we may be able to accommodate requests for multiple sources depending on the complexity. Please contact our customer service team to discuss your specific requirements further.

    Q: Can I add additional charms or customize the design further?
    A: Yes, we offer customization options such as adding a mini heart urn and/or Preciosa birthstone to create a unique piece of jewelry tailored to your preferences.

    You can also opt to add handwriting to both sides of the charm (either the same or different) or you can have handwriting on one side and your choice of text engraved on the other side. These options are available on the product page.
