Surname Histories, Coats Of Arms And 1st Name Meanings
Welcome. If you have purchased from us before the site may look unfamiliar – we have updated it with a new design and an improved shopping cart. For newcomers we are a UK based shop selling gifts bearing your family coat of arms, also known as family crests since 1996. Please check out our prices: there are many shops selling identical prints and we believe we offer the best prices. If you are looking to buy a mug decorated with your arms we glaze the image onto the china whereas others print; glazing is permanent, printing is not.
Fully Authentic – Our researchers have been building a database of coats of arms (also known as ‘family crests’) since the early 1970s so you can be confident that the product you buy is genuine. There is a list of some of the books and documents used in this research at our Bibliographies page.
Delivery: Prints are dispatched either the same day that your order is received or the next working day. Bone china items need to dry then spend about 15 hours being glazed in the kiln. Orders will be dispatched in 2-3 working days. Please note that the larger framed prints are sent only to UK addresses as the cost of carriage abroad is prohibitive.
We have also added our First Name Meaning prints – any name printed on a choice of delightful backgrounds. Available as print only or framed.
