We pride ourselves on being able to say "Yes" to most customer requests. It's part of our "WOW Service!" approach. To help us say "Yes" to you, please read these guidelines:

  • Most routine orders, whether you're purchasing an item from us or we're engraving/imprinting on something you supplied, will be completed in about 5 to 7 business days after you approve the artwork proof. 
  • Faster turnaround times may be available depending on whether we have the item in stock, our workload, holidays and other factors. An expedite fee may apply. Please consult your sales rep for more details.
  • Some products simply take extra time. For example, cast bronze plaques can take 4 weeks.
  • The best ways to ensure a great result within your needed timeframe is to get an early start on your project and promptly respond to requests for artwork approval.

Our Company


Arch has been providing outstanding craftsmanship and customer service since our founding in 1968. Over the years, our client base has expanded to include regional and national customers in addition to our many loyal clients in the greater St. Louis area. Our large and growing customer base includes large corporations, small businesses, non-profits, schools, hospitals, sports teams, and private individuals. We celebrated our 50th anniversary in 2018! 


In 2022, we acquired the assets of Custom Crystal & Glass, a small company who provided - as the name implies - custom crystal and glass awards and gifts.


In 2021, we acquired the assets of Aubuchon Laser, a small company who specialized in industrial parts manufacturing.


In 2017, Arch Engraving acquired Major Promo Group, a small company specializing in awards and promotional products. Major Trophy Company was started by Sandy Breadman in 1962. Eventually, Sandy's daughter Sheryl took over the business and renamed it Major Promo Group. We acquired MPG when Sheryl moved to Florida in 2017.

In 2015, we acquired Stiern Laser. Our HQ and manufacturing operations are now located in the former Stiern building in Fenton. We continue to use  the "Stiern Laser" and "SL Engraving" names.

We're well-equipped to handle a large variety of award, recognition, gift, engraving, imprinting and industrial engraving projects:

  • Laser engravers: CO2 & Fiber
  • Computerized rotary/mechanical CNC engraving machines
  • Full-color UV imprinting department
  • Sandblasters for glass and crystal
  • Vinyl sign plotter
  • Various shop equipment & machine tools to enable us to perform fabrication & custom work

Our showrooms highlight a large variety of available engraveable gifts along with many samples of our work. Visitors are always welcome.

We are veteran owned and operated. We maintain memberships in a number of St. Louis area chambers of commerce and in the APA - Awards & Personalization  Association.
