I would like to thank all of you who have done business with Franks Engraving Service LLC for the last 43 years, but due to health issues, the owner, has decided to close the business as of March 31, 2018.

I (Richard Whibley) will be reopening the business as of April 1, 2018, the name will be Franks Engraving, so that I can still recognize my Dad who started this back in 1975 in the basement of his house, so fittingly the business will once again be run from the basement of my house along with my son Tory. There are some really good things to come out of this, as listed below, I hope and pray that you will continue to do business with us.

I will be keeping the same website, email address and phone numbers

Here are some benefits for you as our customer:

1: All orders of 1$0.00 or more we will ship at no charge. Under $10.00 will be a $3.00 surcharge for postage.

2: We are changing the way we charge for Plaque’s, Acrylic and Glass Awards, when you choose any of the Airflyte items on our website, you will no longer pay per letter for engraving of Plaques or per square inch for Lasering of Acrylic or Glass Awards, you will pay a flat $10.00 charge per item, finally you can say as much as you want.

Example: Plaque P5348 8x10 runs $54.00 and you had 250 letters x.18 = $45.00, so your total cost would have been $99.00. Now under the new pricing structure, it would be P5348 $54.00 + $10.00 Engraving charge = $64.00. $35.00 in savings on just one plaque!

Example: Acrylic/Glass A6542 runs $93.00 + $43.50 Laser charge = $136.50. Now under the new price structure, the cost would be A6542 $93.00 + $10.00 Laser charge = $103.00, a $33.50 savings!

3: Production time on most items will be 1-4 days, if we have it in stock it will go out within 24 hours, if we have to order it in will take 2-4 days.

We hope to continue supplying you with the best service and products for many years to come.
