At WeddingClocks.Com, John Borin creates one-of-a-kind custom anniversary clocks that are specially designed by one spouse to give to the other. "We are not about just making clocks. We use an enamel coated steel clock dial as a canvas on which we screen print a design that is a unique and romantic expression of the couple's love for each other," says Mr. Borin.
There are many great ideas out there for celebrating a first anniversary -- gifts that include romantic dinners, balloon rides, special vacations, etc. Mr. Borin's goal is to create a gift that will be a permanent reminder of the couple's commitment and their special day. He explains, "We're creating a gift that the couple will cherish as much on their fiftieth anniversary as on their first."
According to Mr. Borin, "Most customers ordering a first anniversary clock have very specific ideas about the design and the wording they want on the dial. Some want their photo, some their vows or a special quote or words from 'their song'. They all seem to know what will be most meaningful to their significant other."
On the back of the clock is a special plaque where a very personal message can be written. Also on the back of the 16 inch clock, there is a compartment where a copy of the couple's vows can be kept, giving the clock special significance.
At WeddingClocks.Com in Dallas, Texas custom clocks have been made since 1990 by John Borin. These clocks are screen printed with designs that have been specially created for each customer. Here, the clock is used as a canvas on which to create the perfect wedding or anniversary gift. The designs are printed with enamel ink on an enamel coated steel dial just as was done 150 years ago.
In order to duplicate the look of the old clocks which used heavy-gauge steel hands, Mr. Borin has reproduced the old hand styles using the same material. These elegant hands are individually cut from heavy-gauge steel, giving each a unique character that simply cannot be reproduced in hands stamped from lighter materials.
To authenticate the clock, it is signed and dated by the maker upon completion. Mr. Borin’s custom clocks have been featured in magazines such as “Food and Wine,” “Country Living,” “Coastal Living,” “La Cucina Italiana,” and “D Weddings.”
