Make It Personal With An Engraved Message...

Personalised wall clock pendulum bob with a retirement message on

 

From the very outset I wanted LEDA Clocks to be the type of small family business that offers a personal customer experience that only a small business can.  By offering my clocks as "Limited Edition" you know that the clock you are purchasing is one of only a very small number ever produced and by offering “Made to Order” you also know that the build of your clock has been commissioned by you and starts that day as a sheet of raw material and many, many parts.  Being the maker of the clocks it only seemed logical to continue this unique customer experience and offer the option of personalisation.

Reasons To Make It Personal...

There are many reasons for which you may choose to add an engraved message to your clock but it generally applies when the clock is being purchased as a gift for someone special.  Here are a few examples...

Christmas Gift: I had to start with this one because I originally built a wooden clock as a Christmas gift for my Dad and this is where my clock obsession began.  Dad loved it and your special person will too...

Retirement Gift:  A clock is quite a traditional gift for a retiring colleague so why not take it to another level with a personalised wall clock in a theme that he or she loves! Now they will have the time to sit back and enjoy every minute...

Anniversary Gift:  After all that time together a clock seems quite the fitting gift, even more so with an engraved message.  Now enjoy the rest of the journey...

Wedding Gift:  A new couple, a new home, a life together.  This is the type of wedding present that definitely will not be stuffed in the drawer.  Add a personalised message to remind the happy couple of their day and all the days to come...

 

Where Your Message Will Be Added On Your Personalised Wall Clock...

Each of my wooden clock designs vary considerably between each theme so finding an area of considerable size to engrave your personal message, that is common to all clocks, pointed to only place, the front or rear surface of the pendulum bob (the weighted shape at the end of the pendulum).

How To Add A Message To Your Personalised Wall Clock...

At the point of placing your online order you will be asked if you require an engraved message from the drop down selection menu.  If you select that you would like to add an engraved message I will email you details on how to select your message options and provide the message.

As standard, the front surface of the pendulum bob has a small piece of marquetry in keeping with the theme of the clock.  The rear surface has LEDA branding and faces the wall so is not visible during use (this is the standard pendulum bob (as in the product images) that will be supplied if no personalisation is required).

If you do require a personalised wall clock you will need to consider where you would like the engraving.  The options for a personalised wall clock bob is as follow:

1. Personalisation on bob front surface only. 

Description: Your message engraved on the front surface of the pendulum bob (visible during use) with LEDA branding on the rear surface of the pendulum bob (not visible during use).

2. Personalisation on bob rear surface only.

Description: Retain the standard small piece of marquetry on the front surface of the pendulum bob (visible during use) with your personalised message engraved on the rear surface of the pendulum bob (not visible during use).  This option allows a hidden personal message to be applied to the clock whilst retaining the original marquetry design.

 

How Many Characters Can I Have...

Once you have decided on which side of the bob you would like your message it's time to choose your message.  I recommend a font height of around 4mm in order to achieve clear legible text.  With this approximate font size your message can be up to 160 characters long.

Which Font Can I Have...

There are eight font types to choose from for your personalised wall clock as follows:

 

Ariel - Have your personalised wall clock message in this font.

create your personalised wall clock with this arial font on the pendulum bob front or rear surface

Proofing...

Once I have received the email from you providing your message, engraving location and font choice, I will create the design on CorelDRAW and email an image proof similar to the ones above.  Once you have approved the proof the bob will be produced on the laser, hand finished and assembled to your new personalised wall clock...
