One day sitting around the office we were thinking “what should we call ourselves?”. We wanted something easy to spell and unique so people would remember our name. So we started with words, “digital something, but what?”. So we added funny things like animals and the one that stuck was monkey. Lucky for us, that domain was available and that is how Digital Monkey began back in 1997.
At that time my main focus was web design / graphic design so it fit very well. Shortly thereafter we added laser engraving machines, vinyl cutters, and sand blasting equipment.
Fast forward to 2019, we are still around creating beautiful gifts and have gained a great deal of experience within the industry of laser engraving, sublimation, heat transfer graphics, powder coating and sand blasting.
We have moved from the big city of Houston to the tiny little town of Woodville, Tx so we can spend time with our families. We don’t have a brick and mortar store anymore. We are an online based business which saves you lots of money. We may not have as many choices as big named companies who shall remain unnamed but we strive to make you happy with your purchase and we bring a great deal of experience that other engravers might not have available.
Creating something custom, is a work of art.
In 2020, we resurrected the domain “Preciousgiftengraving.com” and so we use both “digitalmonkey.com” and precious gift engraving websites.
