This is the first site that popped up when I typed in “engraved stones” into google. Sounds like you have to order them. They probably do it with a laser. I wouldn’t imagine they do it by hand. If they did, it would probably be crazy expensive.

Well, the ones listed above are $25 each.

I think you’d have to do it with ceramic, use some kind of sponge to make the rock look textured (or maybe press rock salt in it like concrete?), then use some kind of stamp to write the names in. Fire it up and paint it to look like a rock. Can’t think of any other way you’d do it. It’d take a lot of clay…

@superplannerbee: Maybe if you could find a stencil? I’m pretty sure it would be time consuming to do by hand and I’m sure stone carving is a learned skill. ^_^

INstead of engraving, maybe you could go to a garden rock place and buy plain stones and then find a stencil and maybe paint the names on?

I did this once for placecards at a colleague’s retirement dinner.

I just wrote the names on with a paint pen.

Each rock was placed on top of the napkin to serve as a placecard.

You could also use Letraset rub down lettering.

Miss Tattoo, that is an awesome idea and way cheaper! You don’t even need to buy rocks, just go hunting for them outside & clean them up.
