I would like to have coordinates engraved,but I do not see how I can put in a degree symbol. Any thoughts?

We can engrave degree symbols. On PCs - hold down the Alt key and on the numeric keypad on the right of the keyboard, type 0176, or Alt+ 248 When you release the Alt Key, a should be there. On Macs - option shift 8.

I thought although the stainless looked nice on the outside the compass itself was cheap and plastic inside. Did not feel it was worth the money. Also I had an inscription that was suppose to be on the back and the only engraving was on the front. Was told it was possible to engrave both sides.

Not the quality I expected for the money. Disappointed with engraving... monogram style engraving of initials was requested but that was not how it was engraved. Also, the remaining portion of the engraving is too small to be read. Website should provide preview and photos of both front and back. On a positive note, production and delivery was faster than expected.

Beautiful Compass
The compass I received was beautiful, it was a gift for my husband. I am not giving the quality of the item 3 stars, but the engraving. It was almost impossible to read and did not come out at all like I expected it to look like.
ProsCompass was nice quality
ConsI would not get it engraved

Fantastic service
I ordered four compasses for my elderly parents to give to their grandchildren for Christmas. I asked in the "comments" section if I could have initials on the front and a saying on the back, and they accommodated that request beautifully. My parents are thrilled and can't wait to give these special momentos to their grand children. They'll be treasured for years to come.

Nice compass
I ordered this for my son's high school graduation and its a very nice sturdy compass. I didnt engrave the front but did the back and it looks nicer. I wish I had put something on the front , maybe his initials or the saying I put on the back"for all the places you'll go" goes nicely with Dr Seuss book I had all his relatives write in with college/ life advices.
ProsGood quality Looks sharp and feels sturdy Arrived quickly
ConsI should've engraved the front too but not their fault. I was rushing. Really nothing

I ordered this as a special gift for my son's military graduation. The ordering process and shipping was seamless and quick, and engraving was beautiful. However, the compass was not the quality I had hoped for. It must have been more plastic than stainless steel as another reviewer mentioned, due to being much lighter weight than expected. The feature that really cheapened the look though was the black decoration on the inner lid which was nothing more than a sticker with visible air bubbles under it! Unacceptable and regrettably disappointing.
ProsShiny and functional.
ConsPoor quality, not worth the price.

Beautiful Piece
Purchased this compass for my husband for Christmas. He is a retired Naval Flight Officer, so precision is very important to him. We enjoy hiking immensely, so this compass will be part of our "go-gear." I was very pleased with the ease of ordering, communication after sale, delivery time and the quality of the engraving requested. Will absolutely come back to Executive Gifts again.

Nice gift
The compass is just as described. It is a nice gift for our son who recently graduated from college. We are however, disappointed in the engraving. It looks like the engraver skipped so one of the monogrammed letters is not as clear as it should be. We feel the company should have checked and corrected this before sending the compass out.
ProsNice product. Fast shipping
ConsEngraving could be better
