Callari Engravers was founded by Joseph Callari in 1979 and quickly became the premier engraving services company in New York City. 

Our founder, Joseph Callari, personally introduced the "on-site engraving event" concept to Federated Department Stores over 40 years ago. Mr. Callari was the "in-house" engraver for Macy's and Bloomingdale's, with shops in both stores for over 20 total years, in addition to having his own engraving and trophy shops in Manhattan.

Mr. Callari is a "Master Glass Engraver" and a skilled calligraphy artist. His work includes lettering and other complex design work. His artistic glass engraving work has been presented to President Bill Clinton, Senator Hillary Clinton, Sir Paul McCartney, Mayor Michael Bloomberg, Steve Forbes, Isaac Mizrahi, Ralph Lauren and many, many other celebrities.

Callari Engravers is exclusively an on-site engraving event company. We do not operate any retail locations.

Clients come to us for product launches, luxury events, corporate gifts, awards and personal mementos. We work on glass, crystal and metal. With custom engraving, products sell themselves. After 44 years of experience, we know that our services have significant and direct benefits to our clients' bottom line.
We are artists and professionals with steady hands and a focused eye. Our work adds meaning and value to the gifts our clients give to colleagues, customers and loved ones, which  means a great deal to us. We take great care with every letter we engrave for you.
