Downtown Camrose shared One Less Trip's post. ... See MoreSee Less

One Less Trip is proud to share the latest edition of our "Heart of OneLessTrip" stories. Please reflect on your own business story- we'd love to hear about it! To share, contact Jaclyn at jaclyn@shockermechanical.com. Georgia Wensley, Owner of the Engraving Store & More newly situated on Main Street Camrose. “I have a fine art diploma and enjoy making things. I love the challenges of creating something special for my customers and myself.” Georgia Wensley Georgia has designed a business around her passion for art as well as her passion for people. Her store is a way for her to shine her artistic light on the world as well as share her enormous heart. She has done many unique projects for me personally and for our business. She is always that person I think of when I think “ooh, I’d like to do up something really special for so and so to show my appreciation”, or “I need something unique for this special occasion for the person that has everything”. As a busy entrepreneur myself… pretty much every time, I am sorry to say… I always need it that very day. She has delivered every time. What Georgia offers us is the special opportunity to go above and beyond for the people in our lives by allowing us the possibility of personalizing things in her unique special way. Whether it is family, friends, employees, team members, or customers. Here is her story for us: “I was employed at Camrose Trophies in 2010 and when the owner decided to retire I purchased the engravers. I saw a need in the community for engraving services. May 3, 2010 was the first day of operations for The Engraving Store & More renting space in the Windwood Group Building. I remained there until March of 2017 when they closed their business. I am currently located at 4904 B – 50 Street in Camrose and for the first time have a space that is entirely my own. I love the challenges of creating something special for my customers and myself. I especially enjoy new and innovative projects. Making name tags pays the rent but usually isn’t as much fun as some artistic or challenging projects I’ve worked on. I find it quite satisfying to surprise people with what CAN be done as many have preconceptions of what engraving is. I have a fine art diploma and enjoy “making things”. The laser engraver is a special tool that can infuse ordinary projects with creative touches. I’ve laser engraved and cut unusual things like restorations for dash parts in airplanes and fork lifts. I even made a replacement part for an egg sorter. The Engraving Store & More offers traditional engraving services for awards, recognition, trophies, plaques, ribbons, engravable giftware, glass etching (lasered), nametags, but the “more” is what I’m most passionate about. It’s hard to describe everything I can and have done, I like a challenge and sometimes just the time restriction on an order can be challenging enough, but the creative challenges are the most rewarding. Love what you do and do what you love. I rarely give in to the notion that it “can’t” be done. I prefer to see if inspiration makes it possible, and stubbornness is what gets it done. While many places offer engraving services, I like to include the “& More”. If you want to make something unique – like a custom engraved cutting board, leather project, custom lapel pins or medals I’d love to help. My new laser engraver should be here before years end, and the possibilities will grow by leaps & bounds.” For any of us that have worked with Georgia, it is clear to us that she, in fact is the “more” in her business. Her willingness to go above and beyond and her artistic talent and skill make her business a total gem. To have an artist rich in talent and creativity that has nested her talents in such a unique business here in our midst is such a treasure. Thank you Georgia for sharing your journey in business with us. Congratulations on your very own space.
