With less than 70 days to go I keep hearing “picking up my last few Xmas presents at the weekend”, or “just need to find something for so and so and then I’m done”.  A quick message to all; Christmas is not until December.  I admire your preparation and ability to organise and plan ahead but let us at least get through bonfire night and Halloween, or perhaps October before we start on the mince pies.  Plus, given we turn around our chemically etched metal parts within 5 days; I have lots of time to decide what to etch for my relatives.  For any of my relatives reading this, feel free to drop hints – a choice of stainless steel of brass would be a good start!
