FAQ

  1. When will my order arrive?

The lead time on your specific order depends on several things including, but not limited to:

  • Number of items in your order
  • Number of customized items in your order
  • Number of different products in your order.

In stock items will ship in 2-3 days.

Out of stock items can take anything from 1-2 weeks.

The lead time for the custom house signs and wall arts and custom orders is 1-2 weeks, often times quicker.

  1. Why is the turnaround time so long?

We are a small business, and all orders are processed in batches.

We strive to keep stock of all the products but as we have over 400 designs we do run out and need to manufacture again (5-10 working days for stainless steel brush finish, 5-10 working days if powder coated). If you choose any personalised design allow 5-10 working days from payment and approval of design.

Unfortunately, we cannot run the machines for 1 or 2 pieces at a time. 

Once we collect from the powder coaters, we do a quality check, pack, and ship your items. If anything in the process goes wrong and we reject the item, it delays the item's delivery by at least a week.

  1. How can I see how much stock is available on the website?

Our website will state the number of units if in stock.  Otherwise it will state out of stock.

All house signs, wall arts and personalised products are made to order.

If your order is urgent and you are not sure if we have stock then please give us a ring or send an email to avoid disappointment.

  1. Do you keep stock of all the items in the store?

We strive to keep stock of all the products but as we have over 400 designs we do run out and need to manufacture again (5-10 working days for stainless steel brush finish, 5-10 working days if powder coated). If you choose any personalised design allow 5-10 working days from payment and approval of design.

  1. How does the process work with the custom items?

 After you place your order, we start with the design. Once the design is completed, we mail it to you for approval. After approval, your custom product goes in the next batch to be cut (5-10 working days). Once the cutting is complete, ​the steel goes to our powder coaters, who generally take approximately 5-7 working days to powder coat.

Once we collect from the powder coaters, we do a quality check, pack, and ship your items. If anything in the process goes wrong and we reject the item, it delays the item's delivery by at least a week.
