Making a purchase through The Engraved Gifts Company could not be easier. Just browse our store, and add any items that you wish to buy into the shopping cart.

We accept all major credit and debit cards. If you are shopping from North America or anywhere else, place your order and your credit card company will convert the transaction to US dollars or your own currency.
You will receive an order confirmation e-mail. This is to indicate that we have received your order, but does not indicate that a contract exists between us. Acceptance of your order, and hence a contract between us, will be indicated when we send you the receipt of payment. We have included this term to protect us in the case that a mistake has been made in pricing, we have inadvertently under-priced goods, or in the unlikely event that we are no longer able to supply a particular product for some reason. In the unlikely case of a change of price, we will always contact you first to ensure that the price is acceptable.
Our professional engravers will use their skills to ensure that the layout of any engraved text and or images are presented in the best possible way.
We will not be held responsible for any miss-spelling; all gifts will be engraved using the selected font and inscriptions provided to us by you through the web-site.
If any images are to be engraved, our engravers may need to remove backgrounds from the picture to create the best possible output. Again our highly skilled engravers will work to ensure that you have the best possible picture. Any pictures will need to be supplied in jpeg format.
