About the Custom Gift Studio at the New Chester Market

Unique, personalised engraved gifts, made to order. Shop online or visit our studio at the New Chester Market. Choose from our ready-to-go ideas or let us help you create a unique engraving design for your special gift.

We are laser-engraving experts. We stock lots of lovely gifts, made from wood, slate, steel and other natural materials. Everything starts blank and we engrave them one by one - while you wait, if you come to the New Chester Market, or as soon as we can if you order online.

There aren't many personalisation businesses where you can come and visit a physical shop, and we find that people love this aspect of what we do: you can touch and feel the products before ordering, see our full range in the flesh and talk to an expert who will ensure your order comes out beautifully.

Stuart & Rosie Treasurer started Cleancut Wood Ltd. in 2011 making online-order personalised gifts and original furniture from a workshop on the Wirral, but always wanted to set up a shop offering while-you-wait personalisation. A pop-up shop in a converted horse trailer at Cheshire Oaks was a perfect way to dip our toes into the water.

We are pleased to say the response was wonderful: the made-while-you-shop service proved very popular with Cheshire Oaks visitors. A larger horse trailer studio conversion followed, trading in various locations at the outlet centre.

Our most recent move has been to the revamped plaza area outside the Nike Factory Store, just next to the summer/Christmas area. Here, rebranded as Custom Gift Studio, we are still happily making personalised gifts every day, ready for shoppers to order and collect, some in as little as 5 minutes.

In January 2023 we relocated our Studio to the New Chester Market - no longer in converted shipping containers but in a great setting surrounded by other small, independent businesses. Definitely worth a visit!
