Well, here it is. October first. Do you know what that means?
Engraving Amore's online storefront is officially open for business!
We've been doing a lot. And I mean A LOT! Learning. Designing. Brainstorming. And ENGRAVING!
It's no small task opening your own business. We've learned more in the past two years than we ever saw coming! But what fun it has been!
And now that our online store is here, it really is only the beginning for us. We have so many ideas that we could keep ourselves busy for years just doing what we have in mind now. That doesn't even include the fun projects we hope you bring to us.

What are we happier to work on than anything else?
Something never seen before.
Of everything we've made, and all that we will continue to make for our customers and family, the things that bring us the most joy are those that are truly unique, made from conversations we've shared with the gift giver. What makes someone special? What are their hobbies? Who are they really? These are the questions we love to ask. Using this information, we'll work with you to create something new. Something that reflects the recipient in a way an off-the-shelf gift just can't do. Something never seen before. This is about the ones we love. Don't they deserve it?
These questions led us to creating the double heart plaque, a beautiful piece of wood commissioned by one of our customers for his anniversary. His wife had never seen anything like it before because it never existed before.

Yesterday, we went to a holiday party. Yes, the last one of the season, as far as I know. One of the first people I ran into was Aunt Jo-Ann, who is one of the many supporters of our business. But Aunt Jo-Ann had a very important question. She has been following our Facebook posts and blogs (I'm sure she's reading this one right now, actually), but there is one question that stood out in her mind. She asked me, "So, what it is you sell? What is it you actually DO?" She wanted to see our actual product on www.EngravingAmore.com, not just a "coming soon" page. Between all of the blog entries and pictures of one-time projects, maybe we haven't been very clear to you what it is we're actually going to be doing here. Maybe we should address that!
