Indiana Couple Make Unique Gifts Using Loved One’s Handwriting

INDIANAPOLIS — Steve and Melia McCauley love to give gifts and have always sought out gifts with that “wow” factor, but finding what they wanted wasn’t always easy.

“We found ourselves asking questions like, ‘Would it be cool if someone did that?’ or ‘Where in the world can I find this?’ said Steve McCauley.

Steve had a background in laser engraving, primarily in medical manufacturing, so they scraped together enough of their savings to buy a laser machine and started Vintage Branding Company. That was seven years ago, and the business continues to grow.

Vintage Branding sells custom engraved items like jewelry, key rings, dog tags, and wallet tags — but it’s not just plain old initials. They work with you individually to create unique pieces. They can engrave a loved one’s handwriting or engrave an old photograph onto metal.

The McCauleys are offering a big discount this weekend to Indy Now viewers. This Saturday and Sunday, August 6 and 7, use code ‘FOX59’ for 59% off all products on their website.
