We're hanging out at the shop, doors open for the Birthplace of Rt. 66 Festival
Every year a slew of people descend on little ol' Springfield for one of the biggest events of the year. Hot Rods and hot dogs, Bikers and Barbeque. It's all here! Oh, not to mention the Anvi Customs shop. RyanTheAnvil is currently tooling a mean, mean motorcycle seat. So if you're in the area, come on down and say hello! We're also offering free hats in the store for any purchase over $20!
One of the things we're always trying to do is to keep folks up to date on the upcoming selection of exotic leathers. This allows you to tell us exactly what type of wallet you want to purchase and means that we have very little waste when we sell as much of a hide as possible. If you want to get in on the first/best parts of a hide it pays to pay attention to our social media. Below you'll see a rundown of our current upcoming batch of alligator hides for wallets. If you would like a specific wallet from any of these hides be sure to contact us and let us know, so we can get you invoiced and on the docket to be crafted.
It's official, the Kansas City Chiefs and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are headed to the Super Bowl this year! Much to our chagrin the Bucs have home field advantage for the first time in NFL history but we have faith in our boys to get the job done. Ultimately we suspect it'll be an intense game!
To celebrate we're having a contest! The winner will get a whopping$250 Gift Cardto our store! All you have to do is predict the winner, and guess the final score(for tie-breakers). We're obviously pretty stoked to see our Chiefs headed to the big game!
The Forging and Casting fundraiser is live! If you head to that page you'll find a place where you can support/donate towards our goal. We're aiming to get a few new machines this year that will improve the quality of the metal studio. Namely, we're looking at getting a 3D Printer and a Vacuum Sealed Casting Machine. Each of these machines will enable us to more efficiently craft specialized hardware. Currently the forged belt buckles take an exorbitant amount of time to craft, and you can see that reflected in what I have to charge for the belts in order to turn some sort of profit. That being said, when you're a very small team its in everyone's best interest to make things as efficient as possible on the production side of things. Luckily we live in an era where technology makes it much more viable for a small team like ours to make a large selection of items, provided you can afford to purchase said technology. It's a big investment for a small business...
