Veteran & gay owned business specializing in granite, stone, flat glass, and acrylic/plexi laser engraving services.

Laser engraving is an amazing way to bring out and showcase your artistic creations in different ways using a variety of various mediums. Each medium has its own unique way of showcasing your work and is a great way to give it to someone as a gift, a token of appreciation, or an award. Whether it’s a photo, your business logo, artwork created through digital means or hand made, or an inspirational phrase, we can work with it.

We hand craft Hedonist truffles and chocolate treats with French chocolate and fresh, natural ingredients. Each piece of Hedonist chocolate has a character all its own because it is rolled, cut, dipped and decorated by human hands in small batches.

A hedonist is someone whose life is devoted to the pursuit of sensual pleasures. We find our bliss in chocolate and hope to help you do the same.

Hedonist Artisan Chocolates is owned and operated by partners Jennifer Posey and Zahra Langford in Rochester, New York.

Hedonist Chocolates is a proud supporter of the Gay Alliance and of Roc Pride!
