About Us

Chesapeake Engraving has been in the business for many years. We were on Central Drive in Virginia Beach and operated under a different name. We are now located in Chesapeake, Virginia only 25 minutes away from our old location. Lots of people call us and ask what we engrave. Here is a short list, which grows daily, of things that we engrave:

We engrave Knives, Tumblers, Guns, Watches, Bibles, Books, tools. Bracelets, Necklaces, Pendants, Keychains, Dog tags, Rings, Axe’s, Spatulas, Leather, Trophies, Urn’s, Keys, Baby Gifts, Cups, Mugs, Granite, Wood, Aluminum, Gold, Silver, Platinum, Brass, Acrylic and so much more here at Chesapeake Engraving.

Many of our customers come back many times with new things to engrave and sometimes the same things that they give as gifts. Personalized gifts are special to everyone. We engrave so many things for Birthdays, Graduations, Retirement, Promotions, Award Ceremonies, Christmas, Valentines and so many more.

Our Military service men and women depend on us for their engraving needs as well. We offer Military discounts as well as 1st Responder, Educators and fellow business owners. Just let us know when you get in touch and we’ll let you know what your pricing will be.

We also have a process that we follow to prevent mistakes in engraving. We typically photograph your item(s) to be engraved and create mockups and send them to you by email or text so you can approve after you’ve checked spelling, format, layout…the last thing we want to happen is to have Soosan’s name wrong on her graduation gift.

So, we look forward to seeing you here at Chesapeake Engraving and serving your needs for years to come.
