6 Reasons Framed Gifts are a Great Idea

There is someone special to you, and you want to let them know how much you care. But, maybe, you aren’t sure how. With Easter, Mother’s Day, and Father’s Day right around the corner, how do you express your fondness?

The answer might be in a picture frame. Framed gives are ideal for many reasons. For starters, the possibilities of what can be framed are endless — much like the frames themselves. Before brushing aside this idea or deeming it unoriginal, you may want to consider the countless number of things you can frame as a gift.

  • Tickets to an event you attended together (i.e. movie, concert, musical)
  • Cross-stitched or other handmade gifts
  • Their favorite CD or vinyl album
  • A page or passage from their favorite book
  • A pressed version of their favorite flower
  • And, of course, photos of the two of you

New At SilverSuperstore.com – Engravable Trophies!

Trophies From Silver Superstore

Since ancient times, trophies have been awarded to commemorate great achievements.

The first trophies were monuments to victory in battle, but you probably wouldn’t want those in your trophy case at home today. Most were living human captives or shrunken heads.

The English word was coined in 1550 after the French word “trophee,” which means “prize of war.” The oldest existing sports trophies are the Carlisle Bells. They are housed in Tullie House Museum and Art Gallery in Carlisle, Cumbria, U.K. The bells were awarded by Queen Elizabeth I for a horse race that has been run since 1559.

Our selection of trophies is diverse and elegant. Whether you’re awarding individuals or entire teams, they are suitable for athletes, academics, employees, retirees, entertainers, community leaders or anyone else who deserves special recognition.

These finely crafted trophies are sure to make the recipients feel special. They are destined to become treasured reminders of family history:

Selecting a cake set fit for a Royal Wedding

Mikasa Love Story Cake Set

The Royal Wedding may be over for between Prince William and Kate Middleton, but this doesn’t mean that you can’t create your own royal wedding, starting with with a few tips on selecting the perfect cake set.

If you are planning to give a cake set as a gift for a couple on their wedding day, or looking for a cake set for your own wedding,  the process of searching for the right set can be time consuming and difficult without some help along the way.

Below are a few steps to take when searching for the right cake set:

Step one – Choose your Style

When choosing the correct style of cake set for your wedding, whether it is sterling silver, silver plated, or a durable stainless steel, the goal to remember these items will last longer than the cake in preserving the memory of the wedding. Therefore, it is great to match the cake set to style of the wedding and the cake itself.

Step two – Decide on the Design

There are a variety of different shapes, weights, sizes, and patterns you can choose from for your cake set.  Also, as a rule of thumb is if the wedding is featuring a round cake, using a triangle server works best.  A square cake however,  requires a square cake server.  Take in consideration the main theme of the wedding:  the colors, floral arrangements, and anything else that will stand out in helping you pick the perfect cake set.

Step three – Narrow down your Search

Now you have a few favorite cake sets and you have the challenging task of deciding on the right one. Here are a few categories you may want to consider to make the choice a bit easier:

Price – How much you are willing to spend? The range of cake sets can go from $20 to hundreds of dollars. Determine your budget, and then find the highest quality and best looking sets within your price range.

Quality – From stainless steel to sterling silver, wedding knives and cake serving sets are available in many different materials. Some even have plastic or wooden handles. Certain sets are higher quality than others and will last much longer. Determine what you like and what you can afford.

Longevity –  Is the set timeless enough that you could use it again (say, for a special anniversary)?

Step four- Get it Engraved!

Many couples opt to have their wedding knife and cake server set engraved, often with their names, initials, or wedding date. If you have your heart set on engraving, make sure you find out if the retailer you plan to purchase the set from offers engraving services.  This will avoid the additional step of engraving your cake set later.

Hopefully this helps with your hunt to find a cake set fit for royalty. However, if you still have questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us at 800-426-3057

A story of custom engraving

Something for the kids | A story of custom engraving

This past year I was blessed to become a mother of two beautiful twin girls. It was love at first sight and since their birth I have been looking for ways to give back to them. I looked for something that would physically connect us even when my husband and I were no longer around. This is when I heard about custom engraving of metals such as silver and thought that I would look into it. When I began to dig deeper into it I immediately fell in love with the idea. Regardless I did not want a generic product with both my daughter’s name in a boring cursive typeface. I wanted something that stood out so I began my search and eventually found custom engraving at silversuperstore done by Silver Superstore.

Custom engraving on the Empire Silver Girl's Brush and Comb Se

When I began to look through Silver Superstore I saw a vast array of different products available that could be engraved and at first it was overwhelming to pick one because they all looked very nice. Then I saw the silver hair brushes that could be engraved. This was perfect for my twin girls. I could just envision years from now taking their engraved brushes and doing their hair and when they got older and my husband and I were no longer around they could continue using the brushes remembering what we gave to them.

When it came to the actual engraving we were presented with a vast array of different styles and fonts. We were not looking for anything boring, rather some fancy handwriting. Silver Superstore had us covered with some great fonts. Even if you like more simple options, the custom engraving also came with some really basic font options as well.

Next we had a great experience with the customer service, our children’s names are a little long so we were not sure if we could fit the name across the custom engraved hair brushes. When we called we spoke to a very polite individual who assured us everything would be fine. Once our orders came in we were actually very impressed with how well they were able to get the custom engraving onto the brushes.

Silver Superstore has done something for me that I will never be able to repay. They have created a beautiful link to their parents that our daughters will enjoy for a lifetime. Not only do they have a wide variety of options of items that you can engrave but you are also able to get different font styles. The friendly service really does top them off as well. I can confidently suggest to all my friends and family that they buy their custom engraved products from Silver Superstore from now on!
