In November of 1997 Engrave ‘N Things was started on a small retail cart in the Burbank Media Center Mall. Straight out of college and not really knowing anything about the engraving business, Me and my then girlfriend wanted to make some extra cash for the upcoming holiday season. So we found a retired master engraver who trained and helped us purchase our first engraving machine. The Dhalgren Wizzard, a dinosaur of a machine even then, with very minimal capabilities. By only being able to engrave flat plate like items, we were mainly selling engraved license plates, key chains and pretty much anything we could stick a flat brass plate on.Surprisingly, the holiday season was such a success that in early 1998 we opened a permanent retail cart in the Valencia Town Center Mall. Growing at a fast pace, we invested in new machinery and greatly expanded their engraving capabilities. Selling engraved gifts for every occasion with “while you wait” service, we quickly became one of the premier gift retailers in the mall and community.
In 2001 Engrave ‘N Things opened its second location inside the Ontario Mills Mall. With no one in the mall doing embroidery, we immediately took advantage of the opportunity, got the proper training, purchased new embroidery machines and started offering “while you wait” embroidery.
Growth continued for Engrave N Things and in early 2003 we opened our first Awards and Embroidery center in Etiwanda, California Offering everything from corporate apparel, recognition awards and promotional products, we quickly became known as the one stop shop for anything personalized. With needing more room for growth, in late 2009 Engrave ‘N Things moved to its larger, current home in Rancho Cucamonga. With the new and improved location, Engrave N Things decided to add the word Embroider to its name and become Engrave ‘N Embroider Things.
