We'll engrave the battalion graphic on one side of the mug. You have the option to add the American Flag, the same battalion graphic, or custom text to the second side for an additional $5.
We're working to get permission to engrave the Marine Corps logo and EGA on our mugs. As soon as the paperwork goes through, we'll offer those graphics as well.
If you have an order of multiple mugs or if you would like to request truly customized mugs, contact us directly for a more personal experience.
Choice of finishes: mirror or brushed
(Brushed finish is recommended for best results with engraving.)
Depending on the size of your order, engraving can take 3-5 business days plus shipping time. Custom orders of 10+ mugs maybe take 5-7 business days or longer plus ship time.
