This past year we moved Engrave Goods into a dedicated space, released a new line of customizable leather goods, and were commissioned to make 55,000 NFC tokens for the Grid. We worked with Joey Roth to create maple art blocks, and designed custom ipad sleeves for Mercedes. We’ve never been more impressed by your custom engraved designs.

The Grid came to us with the idea of developing a custom token which could be scanned with an NFC enabled phone to launch a website. We developed a seamless walnut and leather token to encase the thin NFC chips and set to work producing thousands of parts. We're fortunate to have clients like The Grid who value premium materials and quality local craftsmanship. 

wool and wood ipad sleeve

An event agency came to us with the goal of designing a re-usable giveaway for a Mercedes event. We came up with the concept of a 100% wool felt and walnut document sleeve which could be used as a tablet case after the event.

Our friend Joey Roth came to us with the idea of creating an engraved version of his amazing letterpress print designs. After experimenting with various wood species, we decided hard rock maple would provide the best contrast with the thin line weight of the artwork. This project involved milling and sanding each block to a silky smooth surface and then engraving slowly at the highest resolution. Each block is individually numbered on the underside and features the makers mark. The art blocks are available at Joey's site.

We’re excited for what’s to come in 2016 and are finalizing a new collection of products. We’d love to hear your suggestions and look forward to working together soon.
