What We Do:
We create custom laser engraved plaques and personalized gifts for military service members, service clubs and churches as well as individuals. We make art work for the hard to find gift. We are able to engrave on almost anything such as metal, marble, glass, wood and etc. This is accomplished with a highly accurate computerized laser. We are able to perform laser cutting and plaque engraving from anything as small as a dime to as large as 4' x 8'.
Why We Do It:
My husband retired honorably after serving in the Navy for 20 years and has been a wood worker almost all of his adult life, while serving he had a accident that left him 100% disabled. He was unable to use both of his hands and continue doing work that he loved to do. With this new business he can help me provide works of art to military bases and continue doing the things he loved to do with the aide of computer performed manufacturing. He is able to renew old friendships on military bases and use some of his art work to enhance his recovery. He always wanted to provide art work that represented some of the most difficult schools and specialty job that all service members go through. Thanks to This type of business this is all now possible. We can make some money and help my husband in his recovery.

"I was first introduced to Al and Christy at an awards banquet honoring them as Entrepreneurs of the Year. Fortunate to sit next to them during the event, I got to know them both. Their humility and keen desire to serve – their country, community, and customers – was inspiring. Without hesitation I asked them to manufacture a highly customized engraved plaque. The project was particularly challenging given the poor quality of the original template from which the plaque would be made. Al and Christy never gave up, nor did they compromise on quality despite the difficulty of the work. In fact, Al himself personally reproduced, by hand, the original photograph! The product was impeccable, stunning, precise, and very reasonably priced (I marked it up, I was so impressed)! I encourage you to call Al and Christy for your next engraving project – large or small. Genuine, local, and committed to your interests – you will not be disappointed!"
