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.

Excellent Quality  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
This call sign light up sign is much nicer then in the pictures. I am very impressed. I was thinking of getting a neon call sign but this is much nicer. Excellent build quality. It's very pretty. Jim is a very nice guy to work with. 73

Fabulous  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
I have purchased two items from Jim. He answered all my questions and really worked with me. The first item I purchased was a mirrored call sign, world map and then my name alongside a Amperex 4-400 tube. Both the mirrored call sign and tube are illuminated through a remote control switch which can do anything. A regular light show if you desire.

After being so satisfied I sent Jim a "cookie jar tube" the 833A. He put this on a mahogony base and the tube is next to a clock. Of course the tube is illuminated by remote.

This is what I sent to Jim after receiving it.


I just received your artwork a little while ago. It is absolutely gorgeous. The picture did not do it justice. The clock height turned out to be perfect next to the 833A. I was initially concerned that the LEDs would not light up the tube because of its size. It does a great job. I could not be more pleased with this. Every time I look at it I'm in disbelief. Thank you very much for all your time a patience on this project. I will be leaving an e-ham review on this and also the mirror call sign that you made for me.

I could not be more pleased.


Hard to say anything more. You will not be dissapointed.

Very Nice Workmanship  Time owned: more than 12 months
I have acquired other goods from Jim's Engraving since my previous review, and the workanship and quality is excellent. The etched glassware is well done, and looks good. His lighted call signs are especially nice. Jim obviously cares about what he makes. If you are fortunately to have Gordon West hawking your stuff, it must be good.
