Birely's Engraving    610-696-3211

I have used him for years. I like to fax him 10-12 at a time and Ken usually has the nameplates back to me within a day or two. His prices are reasonable.

Van Dykes for the brass ones.  I have started using wooden ones that I think look a lot better from Ted at Antlers 2 Fins.

Here is the link for an engraver I have used through ebay. During the holidays I ordered some and it took about 3 weeks to get them. I do not know if it would be faster than that now, however. But they were simply beautiful and they are engraved with the font and color of your choice and only $2.65, shipped!

Brass name plates are nice but I always inform my customers that they reflect . while black/white or other colored name plates do not amd are easier to read.just a thought!

The laser engraved wood ones just look more natural on most things to me.  I tried them and really like them better.
