Welcome to my 2nd blog! One part of my job is helping customers put together their dream sets and hopefully my ideas will inspire you to come up with a cool and original set that will make you the envy of your Mah Jongg group. With the holidays coming up, NOW is the time to start thinking about that special gift for someone or for yourself. Keep in mind that it can take 3-4 weeks for delivery on a full-engraved set; custom jokers & embroidery can take up to 2-3 weeks.
Choose Your Tiles
Usually the best tiles to use are solids or glitter but as you can see in our Idea Gallery HERE, we have used striped & checked tiles.
Choose Graphic and Ink Color
The next step is selecting what you would like engraved on the back of the tiles and which ink color. You can also use more than one color on engraved tiles. For example, a graphic can be done in one color and text in another. I usually suggest using a metallic paint for the graphic and a flat paint for the text or vice versa. This gives the engraving more dimension.
Design Your Custom Jokers
Most jokers with a custom engraved set will have something related to the backs of the tiles. For example, the jokers on the set with the dachshund have a paw print. The paw print is done in gunmetal and the text was done in red.
Remember, if a graphic is trademarked you will have to get written permission from the owner and send that to us. If we don’t have permission we cannot use it. Trademarked images include all college & professional sports logos, all brand logos (Coca-Cola, Chanel, Lexus, etc.), cartoon characters (Mickey Mouse, Bugs Bunny, Bart Simpson, etc.) You may also find graphics on the internet, if they are watermarked (have the owners logo over the image) you will need permission for that image too. If you aren’t sure, email it to us and we can determine if it is legal to use.
