What are the peakmarkers made out of? They are solid metal and have a nice hefty feel to them. I don't know what kind of metal but can only assume there is no value in the metal itself. They are colored to look like pewter or bronze/brass but are not made from those metals. They are 2" in diameter and 3 mm thick.
Do you do custom engraving? No. We used to do it but it became too much of a burden with my extensive travel schedule. I spend about three months a year in a tent and another three months in a hotel somewhere in the world as I chase my climbing and skiing dreams. I recommend that you use a local engraver such as a trophy shop. They will typically charge about $5-8 to add the relevant info - peak name, elevation, state name, etc. Don't blame me if your engraving shop does a poor job or feels their services are more valuable than the typical engraver! My peakmarkers are laser engraved and I suggest you show your engraver my website so they can see what the finished product is supposed to look like. The font is Ariel.
I think your elevation is incorrect. I do my best to ensure accurate and up-to-date elevations. I've seen peaks with four and even five benchmarks at the top and each one has a different elevation. I recently climbed Long's Peak and the sign at the bottom disagreed with the benchmark at the top and some claim that both of these figures are wrong. In my opinion it shouldn't matter that much; we aren't saving lives, just walking up big hills and using the benchmark to remember a great experience. If you are really worried about my number then I recommend you buy a blank marker and have it engraved with your elevation.
Your website says you are out of a marker I want. The website is likely wrong! The site will allow you to order even if it thinks I'm out of stock. If I truly do run out of a particular peakmarker I will contact you to see if you would prefer a refund or wish to wait for them to come in from the factory.
What if I don't like my peakmarker when I receive it? You are welcome to send it back for a full refund. I've only had one returned yet and that was due to the person not realizing what size they were.
Can I contact you with other questions? Sure! My email address is email@example.com and my cell phone is 402-304-1257. I will answer your emails very quickly unless I'm hanging out on a distant mountain somewhere with no internet connection. In that case my wife answers them for me but she takes a little longer. If you don't have an answer in 48 hours then something went wrong so please re-send your email.
Thank you and enjoy the climb! Robert Kay
