Waterloo Engraving in Kitchener
About the Brand
Waterloo Engraving has been around since the early 2000's, but since January 1st of 2016, it has been operating as a “division of” Artals Promotions Inc. We’re sure many of you are already familiar with Jenn and Dan (and the rest of the staff) of Artals, because we’ve been operating the companies together under one roof, along with Truprint Printing.
Did you know, Artals Promotions was originally named Artals Laser Engraving when it first started? It’s true! We changed the name back in 2012 to reflect the wide range of products and services we offered at the time, because we were (and are) so MUCH more than just an engraving shop. But, engraving still continues to be one of the main specialties we offer …and, it leads to some very unique and everlasting products!
We’re happy to announce that effective June 1st, 2018, Artals is evolving once again. We are going to move forward with what’s known as “umbrella branding” and instead of running 3 different businesses with different specialties under one roof, we’re going to consolidate all the companies information into one location, and one brand. Artals, being the longest standing company, will be the flagship branding going forward.
This, we believe, will make for less confusion with clients who know us as one or two brands, and it will also mean that we won’t need to carry 9 different social media streams, across 3 websites, and a dozen different emails. You already know that when you’re talking with anyone from Artals, we really are, and have been for quite some time, your one stop shop for pretty much everything.
Engraving Services & Engraved Products
When you've been engraving as long as we have, you certainly learn a thing or two about a variety of engraving aspects. For example, did you know that we can pretty much engrave any material so long as we can physically put what needs to be engraved inside the laser? Yes indeed, we've done canoe paddles, guitars, belts, anodized (painted) tools, paper, picture frames, and a ton of other things. Be sure to checkout our Instagram page to see some of the neat stuff we've done.
Our Products - Or Yours!
You DON'T have to buy from us!
Being a full service offering company, of course we have a wide variety of unique products to choose from like thermal mugs, wooden boxes, wine glasses, portfolios, Bulova watches, and (quite literally) a million other products; BUT, just know you don't have to buy a product from us to have us personalize something for you.
In fact, we get asked to engrave YOUR products all the time, and we often get asked if we can engraved small lots, not just large quantities. Well, to be honest, we engrave small quantities all the time (as small as 1 piece) and it's a major part of our engraving business. If you've got 1, 2, 3, or a dozen pieces to engrave, we'd be more than happy to help you, and it's not nearly as expensive as you might think!
Oh, and in case you're wondering about the owl at the top of this page, checkout Dan's left arm the next time you're into the shop.
