If you're a new customer it may not be readily apparent but most products on the website here are made in the order they're received. The amount of time between you placing your order and when it ships out to you is called Lead Time or Production Time. By default we try to get everything crafted and shipped out within three weeks of an order however some things can take longer depending on a number of factors like amount/complexity of orders or availability of materials. During the holidays this can become an issue if you're a last minute shopper trying to get gifts in under the wire as it were. Luckily for you, this isn't our first rodeo and we understand that not everyone has a great foresight to purchase early. That's why we have our "Ready to Ship" collection. In this collection you will find a number of products that are, as the name suggests, ready to ship immediately. Many of these high quality items are one of a kind and make for excellent gifts. They're perfect for folks who have been searching for something uncommon, and for people who literally seem to "have everything" already.  And because they're already crafted you don't have to wait for production time. We'll be shipping everything effectively right up to the USPS deadline. But keep in mind only the items in that collection are available to ship immediately. If you purchase more than one item and any part of your order isn't from the Ready To Ship collection you may have to wait.

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 Card to 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...
