Designing and creating unique engraved products.
Working from a converted farm building at Grenaby Studios in the Isle of Man, we create products, specifically designed for you.
We don’t have an online shop and are not constrained by standard sizes or designs. Instead we listen to your brief and present you with visuals and costings so that the finished product is exactly what you need.
You are welcome to visit our studio to discuss your requirements and take part in the design process. We are at the studio most days but advise you to contact us to make an appointment. If visiting is not an option, we are happy to send visuals by email.
Our studio is home to another family business, Pooil Vaaish Limited which has been engraving stone house and business signs, and standing stones for 20 years. Working mainly with honed basalt (dark grey, smooth but dull finish stone) or polished black granite (shiny black), all of the signs are designed and produced in-house focussing on providing the best markers for your building. Invisible fixings mean that the design is not compromised by ugly rusting screw heads!
We design, create and engrave our awards in-house keeping control of timeframes, sizes and costings. With prices from as little as £5 for an engraved slate finisher's award with logo and text, you can afford to reward your staff, sporting winners (or entrants) with something truly unique that they will treasure and want to display.
Grenabee work with you to produce a huge array of branded products in all sorts of materials. Recently we have etched and cut wooden drinks tokens into mug shapes for “Flo the Coffee Van”; supplied Celtic phrase speech bubble badges for Culture Vannin; hot foiled boxes and ribbons with the distinctive ElementISLE logo for their stunning silver jewellery and supplied a number of businesses with both interior and exterior signage. As a small business we are adaptable and able to work to tight timeframes with small production runs and low set-up charges.
We are proud to be chosen to design and make special gifts on behalf of our clients. Ranging from etched wooden boxes to photographs etched with amazing detail onto slate or basalt, and from wall plaques to sculptures. With inspiration all around us in the Celtic heritage of the island, its fauna and flora, rolling hills and seas, we are also constantly designing new gift ranges from engraved slate and wooden coasters, clocks, wooden plaques, embossed metal items and vellum light wraps.
Services & Equipment
We deep engrave using shot blasting and have both cabinets and a walk-in shot blasting room for larger items, as well as an external shot blaster for on-site engraving of large boulders.
We also have an Epilog CO2 laser etching machine (60 watt; 609 x 304mm) which we use for detailed engraving on stone, acrylic, glass, card, fabric, wood, vellum and other media. It is equipped with a rotating device to etch cylindrical objects such as bottles, glasses, rolling pins. This machine can also cut acrylic, card, fabric, wood and vellum into intricate shapes.
We have an in-house hot foiling machine for branding gift boxes, business cards, ribbon and other items for our clients. This enables us to offer short production runs at affordable pricing.
