Custom and personalized orders
Small adjustments like shifting dimensions and adding names, initials, and logos are always possible.
I can also build totally custom items from a description and example photographs or sketches.
If this is what you are looking for we will have a long back and forth about the design to ensure that what you have in your head is what I have on paper.
Before purchase, you will be given a final item description and usually a sketch. These will be the only documents I reference during construction, and will be considered a comprehensive description of what you are purchasing.
If a desired feature is not in that final item description, it is your responsibility to notify me so that adjustments can be made before work has started.
I offer a service to help both instruct customers in the proper care unique to this kind of leather and to provide reminders when your leather should be due for a quick cleaning and oiling.
This takes the form of an email mailing list and a link to subscibe is available in the reciept of every item from my shop.
This list is never used for any marketing efforts, new product announcement, promotions, or any other such funny buiness. I've got a different list for that sort of thing.
I offer some of my items on a wholesale basis. Please contact me for specific details.
Gift wrapping and packaging
All stock items are packaged in simple, clean, brown packaging. Inside the box, your ordered items are carefully wrapped and nestled in clean, brown paper for a safe journey.
This is intended to be both unassuming to avoid attracting mail thieves, but still nice enough to gift directly.
Special notes for your gift recipient can be added in with the order by request.
When a custom order does not fit into one of my stock boxes I will substitute whatever is around, usually an Amazon box. If you would prefer cleaner packaging I can accommodate this by request.
A note on Range Markings
A range mark is any scar, scratch, or other defect in the hide acquired during the life of the animal or during the hide's journey through the tannery.
These are present on every hide. While I talk care to position these markings as unobtrusively as possible and never allow them to impact the structural integrity of a piece, my pricing is reliant on being able to use the majority of each hide.
To make a large item from flawless leather requires choosing the choicest parts of a $160 bend of leather and discarding the rest. My letter sized legal pad carrier is sold for $165.
If you prefer flawless leather you can request it and I will try to accommodate without guarantee. If you demand it, I can a guarantee it for 2.5x the listed price.
