Reviews for San Francisco engraving professionals
Thumbtack Customer
Scott contacted me within minutes of Thumbtack placing my request for an engraver. He was a pleasure to deal with from the beginning . Scott is very professional and engraved my item exactly the way I wanted it. He took the time to show me different versions of the art work used and helped me decide on the best way to engrave the article. Scott also has different pieces of equipment for engraving which was great as other vendors I contacted did not have the tools or equipment big enough to fit the item I wanted engraved. On top of that, Scott prices are very competitive, much less expensive than other engravers who could not engrave to the item directly and offered less attractive solutions (as adding a engraved plate) at much higher prices. I will definitely recommend Signs by Scott to friends and family.

Scott was very helpful and extremely knowledgeable about engraving options. I needed to engrave into Stainless steel and Scott went above and beyond to ensure that my end product was perfect. He even performed individual product checks on the items (160 pieces) that I needed to engrave. I highly recommend Scott and will definitely use his services in the future.

Communicating with Scott was easy and he's a great guy to work with. He made a beautiful engraved plate for us. I was impressed with the level of care and detail he put into getting everything exactly the way we wanted, as it was a deeply personal item for my family. There was a bit of mixup with the sizing of the plate, but he was able to get a new one made right in time for our event.
