Quality and Service You Can Rely On

Black Rose Etching was founded in Southern California in 1982 and has been family-owned and operated by Michael McDonald.  We have been creating custom graphics and etchings across the United States and overseas.  With two successful deployments to Europe we were able to make a mark and showcase our workmanship on a global stage.

Currently located south of Tucson, Arizona (near Tombstone), Black Rose Etching is now a trusted name across country for their unique custom etching and vinyl graphics work.  The foundation of our firm is built upon our reliability in the market and the trust that our clients place in us.

At Black Rose Etching, we aim to go above and beyond your expectations by delivering unique and quality custom work that is better than what you had envisioned.

We take pride in our quality of work, attention to detail and our ability to deliver impeccable service and craftsmanship.  Whether it is adding your personal touch to your home and accessories or adding value to your business with our designs and creativity, we are committed to offer you only the best.

-Cindy B.

He is very precise in his work, whether it’s in the vinyl direction or masonry, rock, or headstones.  We have never experienced someone so dedicated to his work.  Sierra Vista should be very proud of someone who is above and beyond in his profession.

We all simply loved John’s dedication brick.  Perfect in every way.
Very kind regards,

The final product was delivered on time and proved to be EXACTLY what was needed.

He does an excellent job of etching dedication pavers for the Friends of the San Pedro River walkway.  He is very business-like, provides prompt service, and has reasonable rates.

Nothing but a “Great Piece of Art” were the words used by the public at the unveiling of the Southern Arizona War on Terrorism memorial at the Southern Arizona Veterans Cemetery.

I would like to recognize the professional and artistic talents of Mike.  He was always considerate of my wishes, not trying to promote himself or boost the job in order to increase the sale.

- Annette F.

University of Arizona, Extension Educator

You did a really nice job on my husband’s niche cover.  I’m quite pleased.

We have worked with Michael to develop a series of glass etchings based on the Buffalo Soldier statue at Fort Huachuca, AZ.  He produces a top quality product that more than satisfied our needs.

-Dave P.

President Southwest Association of the Buffalo Soldiers

I wept tears of joy at my son’s restored niche cover.

- Elizabeth M.

Mr. McDonald designed and improved upon my desired patterns.  He did a truly great layout which was beyond my expectations but still within the price quoted.  He did an outstanding job etching the glass on my ’57 Chevy Apache pickup.

- Murl T.

He is selfless in his work and takes pride in his creations which shows in how he honors our veterans.
