Palmgren's Engravables was opened in 1986 by long-time Petaluma resident Ruth Palmgren. The store is neatly organized and carries a variety of items, including trophies, flatware and watches. Customers can purchase an item in the store and have it custom-engraved on site by experienced staff. The professionals at Palmgren's Engravables are not limited to working on metal, and can produce quality, custom engravings on wood, glass, marble, leather and plastic. In addition, Palmgren's Engravables also does bronze casting, a popular method of preserving baby's first shoes.
