The reliability, quality, style and the availability of engravings make lighters from Zippo special. You could get engraved cheap Zippo lighters from many retailer websites.
Cheap Zippo lighters could be the perfect gift not the least because they can be personalized with engravings. The metal lighters from Zippo are refillable and hence durable, are mostly windproof (only the indoor lighters aren’t) and are very reliable. The company offers a lifetime guarantee on their lighters which means no matter how old it is, if your lighter gets damaged, Zippo would repair it for you. And if they cannot repair it they will replace it and send you the old one as well. Add the penchant for personalization that the ability to engrave gives and is it any wonder that cheap Zippo lighters are so popular as gifts?
The websites that offer cheap Zippo flameless lighters will also offer engravings. You could get your name and personal motto engraved or if it is to be a gift, the recipient’s name and a message. Many retailers also offer the option of engraving company names, mottos and logos, making the engraved Zippo good corporate gift items as well. The only downer is that if you want to get engravings done you would have to wait a few weeks before you could get your hand on your Zippo.
If you want an engraved Zippo, then it is better to go for models which have a plain surface. This leaves enough room for engravings, especially if you want a message in there along with the name or initials. This is also better as far as the expenses are concerned since the plain ones are also the ones that feature among the cheap Zippo lighters. Special models and limited edition models would be more expensive and they wouldn’t have enough space to get anything more than your initials or name engraved.
If you are going to buy from Zippo (not from any other retailer) then you might want to make sure the model you are buying would be engraved by the company. Other than most of the common naphtha cheap Zippo lighters, hand warmers, vintage models and many wind proof specials like some of the Harley Davidson models belong to the class. If the engraving is not offered on the model you like, then you have the option of going to professional engravers and getting the engraving done. This would prove to be expensive (at least comparatively).
