This program began in May, 2001, with about 560 people, so far, having come to learn the amazing and lucrative skill.  All classes are in the hotel conference room.  

Total privacy for the class.

This amazing, greatly detailed class teaches you how to create a business around your hand-engraving.  Some make it a productive part-time activity, using it only when they want, or have time to personalize their own gifts for friends and family. Others are more serious about structuring a small part-time business, aggressively promoting their skill.  Then, there are the retired, and near-retired who want and need to develop a steady and reliable stream of extra income.  

Class is 4 hours Thursday evening and all day Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.  Alphabets, practice sheet pdf, and other materials are emailed the day you enroll.  You should enroll a MINIMUM OF 4 WEEKS before the Workshop to practice the letters in the Student Packet. EARLIER IF POSSIBLE to be sure you get ONE OF EIGHT SEATS! Thorough instructions with video support

on making all the letters during the class days.

FULL TIME OR PART TIME....YOUR CHOICE can take what you learn, and polish it to provide an amazing full-time income if that's your interest and goal.  One hundred to two hundred dollars per hour is routine for most of us who do small jobs for sizable fees that produce income in that range....and even more sometimes.  For example....personalizing the back of a man's wrist watch that you might charge $50. for 10 minutes of engraving.  


When you are deciding whether or not it is worth the investment for the Workshop and equipment, know that those who apply what they learn both from the engraving standpoint AND the marketing ideas discussed in every class, benefit greatly. Many get their entire investment back within a year.  Some much, much sooner!


A major part of engravers' income is from individuals who bring wine, spirits, and fragrance bottles, knives, guns, crystal, and a long list of other items for personalization.  Jewelry stores, laser engravers, and trophy shops CANNOT engrave some items that freehand engravers can.  You'll have a highly marketable skill and NO competition from jewelry stores and mall engravers.  Learn how to make it all work and how to earn as you've never earned before for a skill you never dreamed of!
