Etched In Time



About Us

We are a family owned and operated business out of Illinois who have been creating customized engraved gifts and trophies for our customers for almost 10 years. We love what we do and our goal is pretty simple, we want you to be happy with your purchase and experience with us.

 With a very meaningful start to our story, Etched In Time has been operating since 2006 in remembrance of owner Jeanne Graham’s daughter who passed away in 2004. While visiting a trade show, Jeanne was introduced to the art of laser engraving. It only took the visual of watching a picture of her daughter, Katelyn, permanently etched into stone to steal her heart. It was that day she knew she had to start a business that was capable of capturing such importance in a unique and memorable fashion.

Since then we’ve grown and expanded in products, materials, and now work with color and sublimation. Being a small company, we are passionate and strive for perfection. We realize that to grow we need satisfied customers. Our main focus is helping you signify the importance of any occasion with a personalized selection that reflects your precise sentiments. The individuality of our gifts and products ensure that your genuine thoughts and photos are long remembered.
