Baby Cup Engraving
The most common metals for engraving baby cups are pewter, silverplate, and sterling silver. With the price of silver going up so much, silverplate and pewter are becoming more popular. We like the pewter baby cups because they do not tarnish, and we can get some depth to the engraving as pewter is softer than silver.
How We Engrave Baby Cups
We use a process call diamond dragging to engrave baby cups. Most babies are right-handed, so as they hold the cup, the engravement will face away from the child and be visible to those watching the baby. Most people want the baby's name and birthday engraved. For the name, we usually engrave the first name or first and middle name. Very seldom do we do first, middle and last name. It is usually too long, and the engraving starts wrapping around the cup. We always want to make the name as large as possible. For the date, you have two choices for engraving—engrave the date under the name or on the opposite side. Most times we engrave the name and date on the same side.
