Custom Engraving Studio: Donations done for love

Darryl and Joanne Wagner of Custom Engraving Studio are using their unique service in a way that benefits everyone’s furry friends.

Darryl and Joanne Wagner are using their unique service in a way that benefits everyone’s furry friends.

Their business, Custom Engraving Studio in Dover, creates awards and personalized gifts using a process called sand carving.

“It’s a lot like sand blasting,” Darryl says. “It leaves a very fine finish versus other methods.”

Unlike other engraving processes, sand carving can be used on glass, which has allowed the Wagners to give some creative assistance to causes dear to their hearts.

Custom Engraving Studio recently engraved and painted a special wine bottle and two glasses for Adams County Winery to auction during a recent SPCA benefit.

They give more than just single-item donations. Darryl and Joanne are currently turning their efforts to something a little more long term.

Our passion is in doing whatever we can, even in a small way, to make sure these animals are treated with respect and later find loving homes.

“We’re preparing a marketing campaign for Speranza Animal Rescue, where we’re going to be offering a glass with their logo on it,” Darryl says, adding that 50 percent of the proceeds will go to animals through the rescue, rehabilitation center and sanctuary.

The couple is happy to do what they can to help animals. They had two dogs, but lost one recently and the second has heart disease and isn’t likely to be around longer than a few more months. The love for their pets is obvious when they speak.

A passion for helping animals also translates to helping people. Darryl says they were happy to see the recent passage of Libre’s Law – an anti-animal cruelty law in Pennsylvania – and what it means for preventing animal abuse – and more.

“That helped bring us a step forward to actually do something about animal abuse,” he says. “Our passion is in doing whatever we can, even in a small way, to make sure these animals are treated with respect and later find loving homes.”
