Things Remembered Transforms Personalization With iEngrave

In the Day and Age of Email, Things Remembered Celebrates the Intimacy of Handwriting

CLEVELAND, OH--(Marketwire - Mar 26, 2013) - Parents save their children's footprints, locks of hair and pre-school drawings and now, Things Remembered, the leading national retailer of personalized gifts, is helping parents commemorate something just as special: their child's handwriting. Introducing iEngrave technology, Things Remembered is adding an entirely new element to personalized gifts, allowing anyone to capture a handwritten message forever.

With iEngrave, all customers can make personalized gifts far more meaningful by having their unique handwriting engraved. Moreover, iEngrave creates an entirely new spectrum of personalization by offering a way for parents to save their child's handwriting on personalized treasures. From toddlers who scrawl their barely legible name on a holiday ornament to teenagers who compose heartfelt messages on a jewelry box for Mother's Day, a child's development is celebrated from year to year through the magic of iEngrave.

"Helping our customers capture handwritten memories has been extraordinary," said Amy Myers, Vice President of Creative Services at Things Remembered. "We've given brides-to-be the opportunity to see their new signature for the first time on engraved keepsakes and helped children give extra special gifts to their parents and grandparents. We even helped a family preserve the memory of their mother with a musical angel figurine, engraved with her signature."

Available in more than 200 Things Remembered stores, iEngrave ensures every gift is one-of-a-kind and a constant reminder of the person who gifted it. In the day and age of email, handwritten notes are rare and treasured expressions of one's thoughts and feelings. The iEngrave system brings that same element of self-expression, intimacy and irreplaceability to personalized gifts. Whether it's a special handwritten message between newlyweds or a little girl's handwritten message to her dad on Father's Day, iEngrave preserves each memory in a truly unique and special way.
