Well Hello There!

introducing blackdogengraving.com

Hey y'all! I wanted to introduce myself and tell you a little about BlackDogEngraving.com. 

My name is Sara. I'm a third generation engraver and animal lover. My dogs Loki (recently passed) and Daisy are the inspiration behind what I do. Daisy is a 6 year old mystery mutt with so much personality. You can see more of her on my Instagram and Facebook (@BlackDogEngraving). I love sharing posts about her! I'm also a photographer specializing in automotive. Race tracks and puppy tags don't really go together but hey, life is about variety right? 

My family has been in the engraving and awards business since my grandfather opened up shop in 1964. My dad and brother operate that same shop today. They like to focus on recognition pieces like achievement plaques, but I just wanted to  make fun stuff. I decided to open an Etsy shop in 2013. I didn't have a clue what I was doing, I couldn't even run my engraver by myself. Flash forward to 2019 and my Etsy shop is nearing 10,000 sales, showing over 200 products! Time to move up! So here we are, on my own site - selling on Etsy, Ebay, Facebook and Instagram. I look forward to this next chapter in my entrepreneurial adventure and sharing with you as I go. :)
