The Glass Scribe was launched in 1983, from very humble beginnings, at a kitchen table, in Bedfont, Middlesex. Starting with a few select pieces of glassware, Simon and Gina Fletcher engraved trophies, awards and presentation pieces, for local clubs and companies.
As one of the fore-runners of commercial glass engraving, the company soon turned its attentions to the Wholesale supply of everything concerned with this market. Today, we trade from a fully equipped 13,000 sq. ft. factory unit, based in Dingwall, Ross-shire. Our professional teams of studio, engraving, warehouse and office staff, offer an efficient service, along with friendly and professional customer care, to our UK and worldwide customers.
Carl and Adam, Simon and Gina's sons, run the business today.
Carl is the MD, whose talents are also in artwork and the practical side of the business. Carl is responsible for the Buying and Accounts Departments.
Adam is the Sales and Marketing Manager. Adam also writes the Newsletters and organises the sales incentives, loved by many customers.
Ranges and Services
The balance of our ranges are imported from Poland, Czech Republic, Germany, Italy, China, India and USA. As well as providing a wide range of glass and crystal, we offer a fully comprehensive range of equipment and consumables for engravers.
We advocate the use of Rayzist products for engraving and supply Rayzist's materials, tools and equipment. Using the same materials and equipment, we also supply high quality masks (stencils).
Our services include a trade only engraving service. We also offer a 4 colour pad printing service, as an inexpensive alternative to engraving. Ideal for larger orders.
We are strictly a Trade only company. If your interests are personal, or for a Club or Company, please visit a Directory of Glass Engravers at www.glass-engraver.co.uk.
Starting & Building Your Own Business
We hold training courses in both mask making and sandblasting, tailored to your ability. Both are free of charge, when you buy related equipment. Many customers call to try the equipment and we hold the relevant course at the same time.

Based on turnover, we also offer you free hard copy catalogues, which can also be purchased at below cost.
