Depending on the category you select when you order, we choose inspirational, educational and encouraging quotes from Presidents, Authors (including Scientists & Founding Fathers), or a definition of a character quality (like courage, endurance, enthusiasm, etc.)  For Bible verses, we choose a verse based on the meaning of the name.  We typically start with the KJV translation, but will often choose more readable wording if it needs context or clarification. Feel free to eMail us (or click the chat box) to ask exactly what wording would be used. We love sharing name meanings and verses! For a more detailed answer on translations, see our main website .

Can I pick the verse or Quote? Can I change the meaning?

Yep!  Use the "Custom Text on Front" option to include your own verse, encouraging quote, team motto or school saying.  And for really specific changes, we're great with custom requests, as long as they're positive and encouraging.
