About Alan Roberts Engravers

Alan Roberts established his engraving company in 1923, primarily engraving plaques; he was a Master Craftsman, notably being awarded 'Freeman of the City of London' in the 1970's. 

Keeping it in the family

Today, the business continues to be family run.  Alan's Daughter, Elizabeth is the bookkeeper and sandblasting extraordinaire!  Elizabeth's husband, Dave mainly takes care of design (even bespoke fonts!) and manufacturing slate plaques.  Dave is also an extremely proficient engraver with a wealth of knowledge and experience.

Elizabeth and Dave trade from workshops, fitted out with a specialist Sandblasting cabinet for engraving glassware and crystal, along with machines capable of engraving metal plaques, plastics, wood, granite and marble!

Something for everyone...

Elizabeth and Dave are proud to say they will engrave just about anything, "From the inside of a ring, to a motorcycle frame!"

A word from Elizabeth and Dave...

Along with our Family Business, we are also blessed to be able to enjoy family life with our 2 sons and 4 young Grandchildren.  When we are not designing or working at our engraving machines in Liverpool, we can often be found in our 'home from home' in Anglesey.


We strive to maintain high standards, quality is our passion!
