About Personalization

Laser EngraverDeeply Etched, Intricately Engraved,
Words and Images That Won’t Wear Out

In 1989, we began using a unique laser engraving technique (U.S. Patent No. 4,947,022) here at Standard Chair of Gardner. Since then, thousands of people have been the recipients of chairs (or lamps) laser engraved by our proprietary process.

One reason for the popularity of our chairs is that we are able to laser print a personalized message or reproduce an image like a college seal in extraordinarily intricate detail on the crown of a chair (or on a lamp). And each and every one of those engravings will not wear out. We guarantee it.

The engraving of each image is a unique step in the production line. An image like one of those that appear below must first be reproduced from an original piece of artwork or a copy of it. We scan that image into our computer, check to make sure it is crystal clear, and then give the go-ahead to print the image. The computer programs the laser engraver’s movements precisely. The laser then engraves the image into the chair — exactly as it appeared in your original.

No matter how intricate the artwork on your child’s footprint or handprint or family crest or coat of arms…no matter what the type style of your personalized message…our laser engraving technique will match it precisely. And, it will never wear out.


Personalization is optional, but of course many people choose it because that makes the gift all that much more special.

First Line - Cost: $19.00
Usually child's name in script lettering with maximum of 34 characters including letters and spaces.

Second and Third Lines - Cost: $9.00 per line.
Usually date of birth with a possible third line for birth dimensions, such as height & weight etc. Block lettering with a maximum of 49 characters including letters and spaces.etc.

Samples of Personalization

The name of the recipient of the child is always printed in script. We have found that this highlights the young person’s name and makes it all that much more special. There is a great deal of leeway in the added personalization you can choose.

Many people choose to include the date of birth. For a newborn, the time of birth and the size of the baby at birth are also appreciated details. Christening dates and other religious events are also done. Some may also choose their own message including who is giving the gift and an expression of good wishes.

Here are some possibilities.

If you have a piece of personal artwork you would like to have laser engraved on the crown of the chair, please contact us. We are adept at reproducing images on the chair, and while they do cost more (depending on the intricacy of the design), we can usually recreate them exactly. Please note if you provide personal artwork it should be in black and white and have no gray shading. Any size is fine, the bigger you send us the better.
