Frequently Asked Questions

What's your production lead time for custom orders?

For items listed in our collections on this site, we complete most orders within 7 working days of invoice payment and artwork approval.

If you need your order by a guaranteed date, we do have rush/express options available. Please reach out to us at with the details of your order or request a quote.

Can I bring in my own item to be decorated?

We do not accept external items for decoration with two exceptions:

  • Plates for perpetual plaques and some flat metal plates
  • Large volume orders for which 5% extra blank items are provided

This policy significantly reduces setup costs and ensures each design or layout fits the intended product perfectly. It ensures you'll receive exactly what you expected, as quickly as possible!

May I pick up instead of paying for shipping?

Absolutely! You'll see an option for free local pickup at checkout. When your order production is completed, you'll receive an email asking you to make an appointment for pickup.

Please note that some special orders require an additional shipping fee so that we can get the blank inventory shipped to our workshop.

Do you offer discounts for higher quantities?

Absolutely! Contact us for a custom quote if you want something made locally here in Baltimore. If you're looking for a more economical option for an extremely large order, we also work with a large network of manufacturers. You can view some of these options at, or reach out to if you'd like us to source something specific you have in mind.

Will you send a proof?

We're happy to create mockups after you've placed your order. To protect our design team's time, we do not provide mockups before an order is placed. However, if we're unable to provide a design that matches your expectations, we'll offer a 100% refund.

We typically provide digital mockups via email within two business days of invoice payment. If you'd like a sample created before a bulk order, just let us know and we'll work out the details!

How do I tell you what design/text to use?

If you're buying online, just use the upload and instructions form on the product page. You can also email files and text to or upload using our our artwork requirements page. On that page you'll also find our tips on how to ensure you don't get charged more than necessary! We also encourage selecting a font from Google Fonts.

What's your refund policy?
