One idea for customizing the cover of a book or box for your client, is an engraved plate. Some ideas include:

  • Name of client and date of event
  • A favorite quote
  • A small photo and the client’s name

The plates are available in Brass and Nickel. Their finishes are: Satin, Glossy or a Glossy Black with the engraved metal showing through.

The most popular lettering styles available are shown below. Please note: letters that can be confusing or not work well in certain combinations are highlighted in red. We do not recommend the script style lettering for names and sentences that are all capital letters, the block style lettering will work better. If our engraver feels that your choice will not work well, we will contact you.


All plates come with high tack adhesive on the back that can secure to the leather. Typically all lettering is centered on the plate, unless specified differently.
