Beautiful craftsmanship   Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Received a gift certificate at W9DXCC and contacted Jim.
His web site shows some fantastic work. I ordered a lighted sign with a 4 1000 tube. LED's in both.And a Mahogany base. WOW. It is very beautiful He took the time to do a good job and informed me along the way. He doesn't usually supply tubes but he may have some. I found mine on EBay at a fantastic price. Described as condition unknown which was fine with me. He has many products and any would make a great present for a Ham.

Beautiful work and a WOW addition to my ham shack  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
As stated in all other reviews. Beautiful work, class addition to ham shack, on time as promised and worth the price. I had three other options and chose Jim's because of what I viewed on HamNation. Jim is a pleasure to deal with and understands what you want. I would not go any other place for engraving now.

Finishing touches to the shack  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
What a great product! Jim's work is stellar and his attention to detail is unmatched. My Station Sign was custom and I was told it would be done in a few weeks and even with me being a pain with the custom design it was delivered on time right when Jim said it would be. Jim was very easy to work with great service. I would recommend any of his products for your shack they are all real nice.

What else can I say...  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Well, everyone else has stated it already! Jim is the best...hands down, his work and his attitude are a cut above the rest!!! After 75+ emails and going back and forth discussing options and drafts, I finally settled on a callsign plaque and Jim had it to me in no time. It did take a little longer because I wanted a curved display (and the fact that I changed my mind during the process), but other than that, the plaque arrived in a couple weeks. The package was damaged and I was missing the power cord, but Jim was quick about it and sent another one out right away, which I received about 3 days later.

Fantastic design and woodworking from someone that will go the extra mile to make sure you're happy and content. Thanks Jim for an excellent keepsake that will grace my shack for decades to come!

Beautiful Addition to my Shack  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I just received my Call Sign Plaque from Jim's Engraving. It is a beautiful work of Art. Jim was very thorough in finding out exactly how I wanted my Plaque made. When it arrived it was much more than I expected. The finish on the Woodwork matched the Trim in my Shack perfectly. The service was fast, the price reasonable and Jim is a very nice person to talk with. I not only received a great product but made a Friend in the process.

Extraordinary Craftmanship!  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I discovered Jim's Engraving while watching an episode of Ham Nation. I navigated to Jim's website and after viewing it decided to submit a design. The selection of engraving options and (stock) designs to choose from is extensive. Being very proud to be a part of the "Ham" community and equally as proud to be a Detective with the NYPD Bomb Squad I submitted two different designs which included my detective shield. However an NYPD Detective shield was not something Jim had done prior to my request!. Working with Jim to get what was needed to engrave my shield on the glass was a pleasure. He returns all emails VERY promptly! After a few emails of design tweaks back and forth I received my two engraved callsign/name plaques.
This is one instance where a picture does not capture the beauty of Jim's work. The lighting effects are so dramatic and the overall workmanship impeccable. Heirloom quality!
I highly recommend Jim's Engraving to any person that wants a superior, unique addition to their ham shack or home. I'm sure Jim can engrave just about anything!
I will definitely be purchasing other items from Jim's Engraving in the future.
Many thanks to Jim for taking on the NYPD Detective shield! Thanks for reading my review!

Outstanding quality and workmanship!  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
This is my second purchase from Jim. This time I had him engrave a 4PR1000A tube for me, and place it in a cherry wood, lighted base display of the tube, an engraved call plaque and a glass world globe. Jim's new LED lighting system uses a remote control to allow the selection of a variety of colors to light the display, which is really dramatic. The engraving of the tube, plaque and globe is impeccable. Additionally, Jim's fabrication of the wooden base and finishing process is of furniture quality. Finally, his customer service is outstanding. FedEx misrouted my shipment of the tube to him and they seemed incapable of delivery. Jim tracked down the tube's location and offered to physically pick it up at the FedEx facility. Ultimately, everything was assembled, fabricated and shipped back to me without incident. Quality material, fabrication and customer service. You can't go wrong with Jim at Engraved Memories.

Jim's illuminated call sign plaques are nothing short of perfec  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Jim's Engraving products are nothing short of beautiful and perfect. His illuminated ham call sign plaques are flawless works of art and the illuminated call sign of choice by Ham Nation. Dealing with Jim throughout the order process is extremely pleasant and you could not meet a nicer gentleman. Jim obviously cares about his work product and it shows in everything he does. For the ham radio operator that has everything, having one of Jim's signs in the shack is the icing on the cake! Well worth the price!

Outstanding Addition  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I just received my personalized call sign engraved nameplate. From the beautiful stained and waxed oak base to the fine detail of the glass mirror is outstanding! The LED lights just accent the entire piece. I am very pleased with what I have and would highly recommend this addition to your fine shack. Would also make a great addition to your business desk as Jim can engrave about whatever you want. Very happy. 73 Glen W5IF

If You're A Ham, You Need One Of These  Time owned: more than 12 months
This review should have been posted about 3 years ago. My bad.
Just after receiving my new call sign, I wanted a really classy way to display my call in my ham shack. I saw several online ads of call signs carved out of wood, etched in plastic, ect.
While browsing the ARRL web site, I spotted an ad in the sidebar with a picture of a really cool illuminated call sign. I clicked on the ad and began drooling. I knew I had to have one.
I emailed Jim and asked if he could make one for me but I asked him too if he could make the base a little larger so I could add a vacuum tube next to the mirror. No problem he said. Not only did he provide the larger base but he also routed it out (he even went to out and bought a forsner bit to do the job!) to provide a hole to accommodate the tube socket, its wires and even added a coaxial power jack so I could power up the tube heater.
A few months later, I got my vanity call and ordered another mirror with my new call and a new base with the tube provision and the neat color changing LEDs. It took about 3 weeks for Jim to complete both orders and ship, but the wait and the price was well worth it.
Jim and his products are fantastic. He does great work and will gladly work with you. His email replies are quick. Top notch in my book.
Even though I've had my call sign mirror for over 3 years, I still think it's one of the most unique and awesome things that sits in my shack.
Thanks Jim.
