Each stone engraving, wood carving, or laser engraved product that we produce here at Earth Surface Engraving is unique and made to order. For Engraved Stones, this is based upon your design request, the type of stone used, and the actual stone itself. Since all of our offerings are natural rocks and stone, no two will be exactly alike.

In most cases, half of our time and labor is spent searching for, hand selecting and preparing your stone for the design proofing part of the process. Almost all of the work that goes into producing your personalized stone engraving is done by hand, with the exception of the final design being cut out of an engraving stencil on our computerized blade plotter.

Based upon the very nature of this type of custom work, we must account for our time and material that goes into each order.

CANCELLATIONS: With the exception of Rush / Expedited orders, you may request a cancellation of your order within 48 hours of our receipt of it. We will refund the full purchase amount minus any payment processing fees that we have incurred.

REFUNDS / EXCHANGES: Many example photos of our past work are displayed on our website, social sites, and other venues which we use to sell our custom stones and other work. These are intended to demonstrate to you the overall quality of our work, what is possible with our engraving process, as well as the stone diversity that you can expect from Earth Surface Engraving. We always do our very best work for each and every one of our customers. Because we are working with natural rocks and stone, there is no “perfect” engraving due to variables in these natural materials that are beyond our control. Again, we always strive to do our very best for you.

GIFT CARDS purchased through our website, may be redeemed towards any items that we sell through our website.  Gift Cards are non-refundable / non-returnable. Any balance remaining after a transaction can be applied towards a future purchase. Any unused balance is non-refundable.

As a general rule, we do not offer Refunds or Exchanges on our engraved stones, wood carvings or lasered products since they are custom made to fulfill your order. That being stated, please contact us with any issues or concerns that you may have and we’ll do our best to address those.


Please explore our website to see the many examples of our engraving work.

We look forward to working with you!
