Personalizing and custom engraving
For over fifteen years, we have been engraving our HoldingCrosses for our customers. It has been a joy and a blessing to do this. We reluctantly started doing this as a a special request from a customer of ours that wanted to make The HoldingCrossTM even more personal by engraving a name on the wood. In an act of faith, we purchased an Epilog Laser Printer for over $15,000 and began to offer this as an ongoing service to our customers.
A mother's son was being deployed overseas after the holidays. She wanted something he could take and be reminded of the prayers from home. She engraved his name on one side and the scripture from Jeremiah 29:14
out of the nations where I sent you and will bring you
home again to your own land”.

"It has always been hard purchasing a gift for Dad", said one of our customers. I asked her how many siblings she had. "There are five of us", she replied. Then I asked her how many grandchildren. She said there were nine. We engraved all of the "kids" names on one side and the "grandkids" names on the other and she gave her dad the "family cross". She cried and said it would be perfect.
