F.A.Q.

General F.A.Q.

  1. If I order today, when will I receive my order and can I expedite? Our lead-time is 7 business days, 10 to 14 business days during peak holiday shopping periods. Expedite production and shipping is arrange on a case by case basis and you will need to contact us before ordering to make arrangements. Request for expedition after ordering is not always possible and, if production on your order has started, you may not be eligible for a refund.
  2. Do you send proofs? Usually for simple designs this is not needed but we will send proofs on request and always for larger orders.
  3. For a custom order what type of files do you need?A vector file (SVG, PSD or CDR) is ideal with curves and no built in fonts. However if you only have a JPEG, PNG or PDF then we can usually work with that. Remember that for different technologies there will be no colour so for engraving everything will be converted to black and white.
  4. I want to use my own artwork or company logo, are there any setup charges? Generally speaking we do not charge a setup fee for supplied artwork which does not require a complicated re-rendering. You can upload artwork during the checkout process.
  5. Where can I find my tracking number? Log into your account, search the order number and you will find tracking. If you did not open an account with us, don’t worry, one was automatically created  for you at checkout. Go to “My Account,” request a password change, check the emailed use at checkout and then simply follow the prompts to access your account.
  6. My tracking number reads “Delivered” but I didn’t receive the order or my order is lost or is being returned to sender. What to do? Mail couriers often leave parcels outside, with building management or with a neighbor, especially during busy holiday seasons. We advise you to first check these places. If the order appears lost or is being returned to sender or for any other questions regarding shipping status contact us for assistance.
  7. My order was cancelled and I received a full refund, why? Under rare circumstances we may not be able to produce your order in a timely manner. Variables such as stock availability, equipment maintenance, weather conditions and so on may render it impossible to produce your order. We reserve the right to cancel your order at anytime without prior notification.  Refunds may take up to 48 hours to appear on your financial statements.
  8. My order has a strange smell or my hands come back with residue from handling my order. What is this? We work with natural materials, such as wood and leather. Some personalization techniques, like laser engraving, alters these materials’ outer layer, consequently a temporary and completely rectifiable smell or residue may be present. The order is not moldy, unfinished or damaged. Looked at another way, this is your order’s “new car” smell.
  9. Do you provide discounts for bulk orders? Yes, discounts are automatically applied at checkout. A scale of discounts is shown in each product page. For larger orders beyond this scale one of our creative consultant will discuss pricing once we have a good idea of your requirements.
  10. Do you have other packaging options? We have a variety of packaging options to choose from. Our wooden boxes are clear favorites but we can also create branded cardboard boxes or – for larger orders – custom shaped packaging crafted from metal or plastic.

  7. A portion of my order arrived damaged. What to do? For large bulk orders 2% spoilage should be expected and, generally speaking, we ship more quantity than ordered to make up for this.

We do not issue partial refunds on bulk order damaged during the shipping process. We will redo and ship the damaged items or issue a store credit.
