I have a lot of engraving on some of my customs (see bikes “Miami Nice”, “Deanager”, “Cruising” etc on my website). Talking to my fans, I discovered that many of you would have liked to do the same, but didn’t for 2 main reasons: 1- They didn’t know any engraver. 2- They thought about engraving at the end of their project when they were already…over budget. The purpose of this post is to guide you to an excellent engraver, and to tell you that you should think of engraving at the beginning of your project, the same way you budget your paint job. In addition, engraving is a slow process and must be done, of course, before chrome plating on polished steel or aluminum. Her name is Heather and she hand-carved some of the top bikes that you know. She works out of beautiful Calgary, Alberta Canada. Don’t worry, distance is never an issue with an engraver because you just need to send a sketch or photocopy at scale of what you want to be done. For coherence of the engraving work to be done and for planning optimization, I also recommend that you send all your arts in one time. Tell her I sent you and maybe you will get a discount. And don’t forget to email a picture of her work when it’s installed on your bike. New-Line Engraving.
