Engrave It!

Visit our How To Instructions for more details!

1. Choose the right message.

Keep in mind there is limited space for each surface of the product. The more letters and words you use, the smaller the font will appear. Make every word count!

2. Use all the engravable space.

You have up to four areas that can be engraved. You can engrave the lid and case of the front and back of most lighters.  However, some lighters do have special engraving areas. When you use all available surfaces, you have the chance to communicate a truly unique and meaningful message.

3. Review your finished product.

Be sure to make any design changes before you place your order. We are unable to alter your image in anyway once we receive your order. Once the order is placed, the order cannot be cancelled. And customized lighters are not eligible for return or refund.

4. Don't forget the guidelines.

Profanity, offensive remarks, or references to drugs, violence, or anything else in poor taste will not be accepted.
