This engraving is a diamond drag engraving, so the multiple line fonts look best. Sorry we cannot do logos with this method. See LASER ENGRAVING if you need a logo or have a lot of characters.
Your total price will depend on how many characters you have, and how you lay out the message in the different spaces. You can choose more than one of the areas, but each area has a fixed price. You can maximize each line if you want, and let us know in the notes how you want to split up the lines.
The default font choice is Garamond 6 Line. Another 6 Line font is the Goudy. 6 line fonts show up better on the polished stainless steel. Other fonts may have 4 lines or 2 lines in their style. See examples.
Keep your message short but meaningful. Lid sizes are as follows: Sally Lid 3.5" diameter; Mrs. Lid 5.5" diameter; Mr Lid 6" diameter; Arnold Lid 7.75" diameter. The Arnold lid needs to be engraved in the area underneath the handle, so it's limited. The more characters you have, the smaller the font must be to fit the lid properly. What if your message comes shy of some letters/spaces that you need to pay for already? Add a year (4 chars) or a date like 3/17/2016. We will put it on a separate line.
Allow 2 weeks timing for the light engraving service, in addition to any timing for product preparation and shipping time. Sorry, while we can ask for a rush from our local supplier, there is NO guaranteed rush for engraving.
Number of characters too many for this option? Consider the Laser Engraving option instead.
Just type in the characters you want on the lid. We will center it properly and space it normally. Do you want a proof/example? Just ask in your notes. If any question we will contact you. You can type all on a line and continue on the next - we will make it one word and have it fit nicely. Again any questions just put it in your order notes or call us. We've uploaded many examples of our work. This engraving is simple and cannot accommodate pictures or logos.
