Pen Engraving

Here at The Pen Shop, we have a huge selection of luxury pens from a range of highly esteemed pen brands. With our pen engraving service, we’ve made it easier for you to personalise your pen and add an extra special touch.

Which pens can be personalised?

Whether you simply add initials, a name or a personal message, engraving adds that finishing touch, creating the perfect gift and a personalised pen they can treasure. Many of our writing instruments can be engraved — simply shop our range of pens and look out for the ‘Engrave Me’ icon. Our product pages will tell you whether the item can be engraved on the pen or the box.

What can be engraved on a pen?

We can engrave up to 15 characters including spaces onto your pen, so there is plenty of room for a name or special message. We can only engrave letters or numbers — unfortunately, we’re unable to add symbols.

Where will my message be on the pen?

We’ll engrave your message to the cap of the pen.

How much does pen engraving cost?

We are thrilled to currently be offering this service for £10 on all eligible writing instruments.

Can I choose a font for my message?

We’ll engrave your message with script lettering, we can offer block lettering if you would prefer.

How do I add engraving to my order?

You can add engraving to your order as part of the checkout process rather than on the product page.

How long will it take for my personalised pen to be dispatched?

If you choose to take advantage of our pen engraving service, your order will take a little longer while we prepare your pen. This will usually add 2-3 days onto the dispatch time of your order.

Is pen engraving available in-store?

Pen engraving is also available in our stores. To find your nearest store, use our handy store finder. Our in-store teams will be able to advise you further on our pen engraving service.

Do you provide specialist engraving?

Specialist engraving can be arranged with the pen manufacturer through our stores and our mail order centre. Give us a call on 0191 487 0033 for further information.

Can I amend or return my engraved pen?

Unfortunately, we cannot make any changes to engraving that has been confirmed in the checkout process and your order placed. Before confirming your order, we recommend you check that you’re completely happy with your engraving, remembering to check spelling and presentation.

We regret that we cannot refund or exchange pens once they have been engraved.

I’ve already ordered a pen from The Pen Shop. Can I arrange pen engraving separately?

Because engraving is done as part of our dispatch service, we’re unable to organise it through the website after delivery of the pen. Engravings must be done at time of purchase, as we do not offer pen engraving as a separate service.

Can I arrange for my pen to be engraved over the phone?

Unfortunately, we cannot take telephone orders for engraving. If you wish to take advantage of our pen personalisation service, please do so through our website.

Do you offer box engraving?

We also offer box engraving, allowing you to add up to 50 characters to the presentation box of selected pens. This makes a great personalised corporate gift.

To find out which pens are eligible for box engraving, look out for the engraving icon on our product pages. There, you can use our dedicated personalisation tool to quickly and easily add your message and we’ll take care of the rest.
