A: For orders placed on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, processing commences the following Monday. If we have your item in stock we aim to despatch these orders on that Monday for delivery Tuesday. However, please note that during periods of very high demand it may not be possible for all orders to leave us on the Monday for next day delivery and you may have to wait an extra 24 hours for the despatch of your goods.

Q: What if my order is very small, can you adjust your shipping costs?
A: As a small business we do not offer this service through Australian Post due to the additional costs of time spent travelling, queuing and parking charges. I will attempt in all cases to use the most cost effective postal bag possible.

A: Yes we offer click and collect. Location for pick ups is Brookfield Victoria 3338. Once an order is placed, we will contact you to finalise a day and time for collection.
Q: What is laser cutting and engraving and CNC?
A: Laser cutting is the process of using a powerful laser to cut and/or engrave items from flat sheets of material like wood or Perspex/acrylic. The Laser cutter works by directing a high powered laser beam very precisely at the chosen material to either etch, mark or cut through.
Please note that all items pictured may have accessories added for photography purposes, these are not included in the same of the products.
We have now introduced a CNC into our creative design. CNC means computer numerical control. It is the fabrication method where written code controls the machinery in the manufacturing process. The code determines everything from the movement of the cutting head and the part to spindle speed, RPMs etc
Q: What thickness Wood/Acrylic do you use?
A: We have a variety of wood and thicknesses however we predominately use 3mm and 6mm. We can engrave on items such as box, hammers etc however we do only offer these services to products bought in house.
With our CNC operation we work with wood from 3mm to 20mm.
Q: Do you offer painting of item?
A: Yes, we do. However colours are limited and an extra 2 days will be added to creativity time to process your order. Although we offer this service we recommend you have a go at painting your items.
Q: Why does my item smell?
A: This is because your item has been cut/burnt into shape and therefore will have a smell. This will past with time however initially the smell will be quite strong.
Q: Can I use my items outside?
A: The materials we use are only suitable for inside use. However Acrylic can be used in an undercover area. MDF also can be used however if moisture is an issue then this will eventually destroy/warp your item.
Perspex/Acrylic can be quite fragile. We recommend using a nail to hang these products. A reliable double sided tape can be used however please note that if your item was to fall, it will shatter into pieces. This is why many of our acrylic pieces have a backing board of MDF for strength.
Q: How do I hang an item on a wall?
A: If you are choosing a plaque or sign these may come with a glue stick and hook for hanging your item. This will not be attached to your item as you may like it painted first. We do not recommend children use the glue as it is very strong.
Some items will alternatively come with a stand, just be mindful that if you are painting your item, you may need to sand the paint off the bottom to fit into the stand.
We highly recommend purchasing 3M command stripes from your local supermarket as these will have your item looking beautiful flush against the wall.
Q: I would like to sell your products on-line, is this a problem?
A: We are happy to supply on-line traders.
Q: I sell on-line, may I link to your pictures?
A: Whilst we are happy for you to use our photographs, please take a copy and link them via your webserver, not linking directly to our photographs.
Q: What brands do you carry?
A: We create all products and although we may have some high demand items already made, most are created once an order is received.
Q: Do you have a paper catalogue?
A: No. Due to the high turnaround of our stock we found that a paper catalogue is out of date before it is even printed.
