So...who are we?
We are Chris and Arika Frederick; partners in life and business, and obsessed with making the perfect, thoughtful gift both easy and accessible.
We started Frederick Engraving together back in 2012 to fill a niche in the personalized gift industry that we noticed was lacking. While rushing to buy last minute groomsmen gifts for our wedding, we realized that our options were soooo limited. The only place that could provide what we needed was in a mall (crowded, congested and expensive) and even they had limited merchandise available on short notice.
Being lifelong entrepreneurs at heart, we tucked this idea away hoping that we could find a way to make it happen in our future. That opportunity came just a few months later in 2012. We found out we were expecting our first child and immediately starting planning our exit strategy from our 9-5 jobs. We took a giant leap of faith and started engraving and personalizing gifts with an emphasis on FAST turnaround time (because lets be honest, not many of us plan several weeks ahead when we need a special gift)
For us, failure was not an option we considered. We hit the ground running and poured our heart and souls into growing and expanding (mostly at the cost of sleep!). It paid off immensely and less than 6 months later, we hired our first full time employee and moved into a small studio space. Fast forward to 2019 and we now hand make all of our personalized gifts in our large facility in Rohnert Park, California. We have hand picked an elite team of employees who are excellent at making the gifts we have designed, just for you!
While our production facility is in Rohnert Park is not currently open to the public, we are proud to serve and ship to customers all over the world. Thanks for stopping by, and if you have any questions or comments, please don't hesitate to contact us!
