Sponsor Spotlight: Engraving Pros

Trophies are best received in person. Passing from our hands to yours. It’s a thrilling experience for us too!

We met Engraving Pros as we searched for a local trophy store that would provide engraving services. We were looking for a small business to support. We like to work with small businesses in San Diego County.

When we walked into Engraving Pros we were treated very well by the shop’s owner. We told them about our unique film festival and our inaugural event that would take place within a few weeks, after having launched it almost three years prior to 2012.

They helped us choose trophies and gave us a quick turn-around for their engraving service.

In 2013 we went back and selected our unique trophies that we’ve handed to awardees for Best Feature Film, and First, Second and Third Place for the Short Film Competition.

In 2020, Engraving Pros became a sponsor for our film festival. Of course, the pandemic caused restrictions to in-person events just a few weeks before the festival, on March 19 in California. We found ourselves quickly shifting gears online.

Since 2020, Engraving Pros has been a sponsor of the trophies for our film festival. We confirmed they are happy to sponsor again this year for the 13th edition of 2024.

This may be the last year we give out these trophies as we evolve into a new design in 2025.

If you need engraving services, Engraving Pros can work with you even if you are not in San Diego. Their customer service is exemplary, courteous and we stand by their integrity.
