By thinking outside the box and creating custom fixtures, you can open up a whole world of new items to engrave. The fixtures don't have to be fancy, just functional.
If a custom fixture needs to be created, explain that to your customer and help them understand the extra time and cost involved in creating the fixture. We charge the customer for creating these fixtures and once they understand why this is necessary, they are happy to pay the extra cost for fixture creation.
