NEW BEDFORD, Mass. -- AHEAD has long been known for its high-end accessories - money clips, bag tags, ball markers, medallions, divot repair tools, hat clips and more. Next month at the PGA Merchandise Show the company will unveil its upgraded AHEAD Inscriber 2.0, designed to make users "engraving experts in minutes," according to AHEAD CEO Anne Broholm.

The AHEAD Inscriber is a compact, self-contained engraving solution with an integrated touch screen and picture-driven interface. The AHEAD Inscriber is quiet, tops out at 15 inches high, 10 inches wide and weighs just 18 pounds, making it a subtle and convenient addition to any retail space. The proprietary software is customized for the AHEAD product line with easy-to-use templates, user-friendly menus, coupled with a long lasting diamond-tipped cutter to ensure the highest engraving quality.

"It's very user-friendly and takes up little counter space, so we're confident it will be well received," said Scott Stone, national sales manager, golf. "We think it's a pretty revolutionary concept to offer to AHEAD's customers."

Stone added that the company's comprehensive and customizable accessories line is ideal for golf tournaments and outings. "With our array of options, buyers can pick and choose the types of merchandise and price points best suited to their needs."

Furthermore, AHEAD can deliver great looks, decoration and a full solution for all of its customers' headwear, apparel and accessories needs though its AHEAD, Kate Lord and PGA Authentic's collections.
