The space is limited; please keep it to 4 lines at the most, There is room for a name, title, date and a one-sentence thank you (military award).

Please indicate if you want the tribal pattern at the end of the spear. If you have a lot of words and images, engravers will suggest shortening the tribal pattern or lessening the number of words, or putting some of the words on the back (cost an extra $25 paid at pick up). Send us the words and images and we will send you the best layout.
(If you can’t tell, the name on the spear is added through photoshop. The rest of the engraving shows how the engraving will look on the spear.)
HOW THE ENGRAVING PROCESS WORKS
- Send the words to be engraved with your order. You will receive an order number and an email confirmation. You can only attach one image at first. If you want to include more images in your layout, please mention that in your order description, and send those separately to the same email address with your order number in the subject heading.
- Fill out the “Due Date” portion of the order form. Please make note of the pickup address.
- New images that we do not have in stock cost $10 each. Please send high-resolution or vector images if possible. We will let you know during the proofing processing if your image is new. We have been in business for over 17 years, and we have most of the Hawaii military images. DO NOT send photographs of cloth badges or coins to be used as images. We have the right to refuse and/or refund your new image fee.
- Coins do not on the spear. Photographs of people do not go on the spears.
- Extra Engraving – If you want the engraving to go on the back of the spear, it will cost an extra $15, payable on pickup, or pay over the phone if we are shipping out the spear.
- We will send you a layout with the images and the words you requested so you can review and suggest changes or approve. You have 3 chances to change your layout, then we must move on to printing. We will print only after you approve. We will send another email when your order is complete for pickup. To check on your order status, please call the engraving shop at 808 484 1415.
- Feather colors – You may request the feather colors from the following – blue, yellow, red, brown, green, and orange. If you do not request a color, we will use natural brown color. All the colors are dyed except for the natural brown.
- RUSH ORDERS are $20 if you need them earlier than 5 days of your order date. Pay the Rush fee when you pick it up.
- If your order is not a RUSH order, make your pickup date to be at least 7 days after the date of purchase.
