What We Do

We handcraft engravings in stone, glass and earthenware. You get unique gifts, drinkware and decor that no one will forget.

Rock Solid Sayings Engraving is a home-based workshop in DeKalb, IL. Since 2018, we’ve been engraving quotes, graphics and custom sayings into various Mediums.

  • Natural river rock
  • Landscaping rock
  • Beach stones
  • Glassware
  • Ceramic pots
  • Bricks
  • Coffee mugs
  • Crystal trophies

Every piece is truly one of a kind. Each item is timeless, stylish and long-lasting. 

We engrave our products via “sandblasting.” Though it sounds chaotic, sandblasting is a precise process that has been used for over 100 years. 

Old-fashioned sandblasting gives a level of refinement that cannot be found in factory-made products. Sandblasting is cleaner and more durable than laser or chemical etching.

Meet “Sandcarver Steve”

Meet Sandcarver Steve, head artisan at Rock Solid Saying Engravings! 

Before he became a master engraver, he always enjoyed getting creative. 

In 2017, he visited an art fair in New Baltimore, MI that refined his creative direction. He found an engraved stone that said “Begin Again.” 

The rock was so simple, but Sandcarver Steve couldn’t get it out of his mind. 

Why do things become so profound when they’re etched in stone?

"There is something immutable, enduring, and everlasting

about images and words carved into stones."

Since then, Sandcarver Steve has crafted 100’s of unique engraved items to share. Today, he ships his treasures all over the USA. 

He’s inspired by how words can make people smile. He loves that customers are astonished by the detail, precision and beauty of his creations. 

Whether you want inspiration, witty or loving, Sandcarver Steve works with you to craft the perfect gift. As he likes to say, “Let’s get your sentiments into sediment!”
