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: (hyperlink to mediums tab/page)

  • 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.

About Sandcarver Steve

Meet Sandcarver Steve, head artisan at Rock Solid Saying Engravings! Steve always enjoys 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 stone.”

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.
