When it comes to Christmastime and birthdays, you basically have two choices for getting people a gift: make one or buy one. Well, a custom belt buckle offers the best of both worlds. Sometimes, a handmade gift, if it’s not really spectacular, can look a little cheap. A store-bought gift, on the other hand, can feel a little impersonal. Custom belt buckles offer the personal touch of a handmade gift with the permanence of having your personalized design cast into metal for the ages.
There’s something nice about knowing that your brother, sister, son, daughter, niece or nephew got you a belt buckle that will look the same in several hundred years as it does now. The permanence of having something literally “cast in stone” or, well, metal, at least, shows that some real care went into the gift, and it shows tremendous respect for the recipient.
Having your name, your initials or your nickname on a belt buckle really does lend you your own unique style. At the very least, having your own unique name on your buckle makes that buckle unstealable, it’s your buckle for life.
It’s also impossible to regift. If you have a brother who’s always giving you what you gave him a year ago, this is a way to get back at him.
But in all seriousness, custom belt buckles are a gift that really stand out from the rest. Inola Castings have created custom belt buckles for families who got together to all pitch in on a great gift for a beloved family member, as well as for individuals who just wanted something really cool to wear with their new leather belt.
It doesn’t just have to be names and initials, of course. For those who really want to go the distance, you can have your family crest or other custom imagery embedded for all eternity on a piece of metal. Inola Castings have seen, and created, some of the most bizarre, weird, creative and incredible custom belt buckles of all time, and there aren’t all that many designs you could come up with that you can’t put on a custom buckle.
