Flagship Store - Grove City, PA


Our tools are our hands, hammers, chisels, anvils and our own creative talents. Our mediums are aluminum, copper, pewter, bronze and silver. Our legacy is using the time-tested techniques in our western Pennsylvania facility to create gifts of enduring beauty.

Here, our master die engravers illuminate metal into an art form by hand etching designs in reverse into a piece of hard steel. The design on the steel die is then pressed into a canvas of metal to create our unique giftware. As the engraver transforms each piece of steel into a meticulously-etched die, he leaves his signature hidden within the design, as an artist signs his paintings. Each of our dies is stored in a vault...at the heart of our company.

Tour the Forge and see the pride our craftsmen take in each piece as they hand hammer and form the design, stamping each piece with the brand of the hands that craft it.

From limited-edition ornaments to holiday themed décor, you'll find an assortment of fine collectibles to cherish year round. Discover for yourself why families all over the world join in the tradition of decorating and gifting with Wendell August.

The Flagship Store is located at 2074 Leesburg-Grove City Road in Grove City (Route 208, 1/2 mile west of the Grove City Premium Outlets).
