We at Broderick are picky about our engraving. If we don't like how it is going to look we will contact you by email or telephone with suggestions before engraving. When we do engrave we take extra time making it look as perfect as can be expected.

Note: All of the engraving examples below on this page we engraved prior to 2008. Since I have not taken pictures; and our engravings are nicer so much so I have been signing the receipt with Engraved by John Broderick.

Now I rarely use slant font which is a basic outline of the letter. Our engraving machine engraves more detail in each letter when using Heavy Block We prefer engraving names in heavy block and Love etc in cursive font. Using two fonts on the same item looks gorgeous.

Two or more capital letters together look better in Heavy Block. Fancy fonts are hard to read for capitals together. Names look wonderful in Heavy Block with the first letter capitalized and the rest in small.

Cursive is beautiful for endearing words. It is best to keep the number of words small so the font size can be large.

On medals, most put a name at the top, love at the bottom, and if space allows words inbetween. Example: John (Heavy Block), Stay Safe (Slant), and Love Amy (Cursive).

To keep medals from being lost I recommend putting First and Last name at the top or better yet: First Middle and Last name at the top.

Fewer words are best. Excessive words result in small font size. Redundant references such as using the word love twice I like to avoid. Using To or From should also be avoided providing more space for making the engraving visually attractive.

Thanks much, John Broderick

Slant Font  

Slant is the font we like and use the most. With slant we can
engrave more words yet keeping each word as large as possible. Slant allows us to space the engraving for the best appearance.

There are exceptions such as using all capitals in slant for initials or a word may look better in heavy block or old english with the rest of the engraving in slant, cursive, or both.

Heavy Block   

Heavy Block is our second most popular font. All the letters, both upper case and lower case all elegant and engrave with wonderful spacing and appearance.




Slant, Cursive, and Heavy Block together You can mix slant, cursive, and heavy block together.


Cursive Font  

Cursive font takes up 2 to 3 times the space as slant so the letter will be a lot smaller or we suggest using only one to three words.

Old English  

Old English font takes up lots of space. Usually only one or two words look good in old english font.



Vines font only works well when engraving just one letter.

Tiny hearts with vines letter engraved.




Other Fonts

      How much will fit. Our machines have the ability to shrink words and phrases to fit the item. However, please remember space is needed on the outside edge for centering. The more words may reduce the size of each letter.
