About Us

My name is Cheryl Nelson and I own Nelson Engraving. I have been in business since 2005 providing reliable, affordable, quality workmanship, and attention to detail on every order I complete. I worked in a financial office environment for over 18 years but found I wanted and needed to be more available to my family.


After seeing there was a need for engraved labeling for electrical, mechanical and other businesses, my husband and I decided it would be the perfect opportunity to provide income, work part-time and be available for my family. Having my own small business allows me to use my accounting background and I thoroughly enjoy being able to use my ability for detail and hands on nature when completing every order. This is my business; I personally answer your questions, take your orders and engrave your custom product.

Client Testimonials

"I have been working with Nelson Engraving for about 2 1/2 years and I would highly recommend this company. My orders have always been correct and completed promptly. Cheryl is very knowledgeable and is extremely helpful when I am not sure what I exactly want. She exemplifies customer service at it's best. She has done both plastic and metal engraving for me, and I have always been very pleased with the final product. I wouldn't use any one else!"

"Our experience with Nelson Engraving was great! The ability of their computerized engraver to handle various design file formats made it possible for us to customize our own designs; resulting in products that were done right, the first time. Customer service was also excellent, and the turn-around time was super-fast."
