Initial Box Discussions
It is certainly useful if you have a clear idea of what you want and can either sketch or explain it to us.


We will ask you about your box aspirations in detail, including how you wish to personalise your box in terms of
- size
- style
- hardware
- woods/veneer type
and can provide you with samples as well as images of boxes we have created to help clarify ideas further.

Computer Generated Drawings
Once we fully understand your requirements we can present you with a computer generated model to help you visualize how the final piece will look.  At this stage it is easy to change and rearrange box elements and once the design has been agreed we can provide you with a quotation and expected delivery date. Payment arrangements are flexible.


Box Creation
Boxes generally take six to twelve weeks to complete depending on current orders, once the drawings have been approved.  We keep you up to date with box developments by sending digital images of your handmade box with supporting text via email.  You can also contact us at any time to ask about progress.

Delivery
After receiving the final balance we will arrange for your box to be delivered using an appropriate postal service such as Special Next Day (UK), Express 24 (Ireland) or DHL (further afield) and whenever possible we will personally deliver your bespoke box within Northern Ireland.



We always endeavour to keep to a delivery date especially if it is for a special occasion such as a wedding gift, retirement gift or another special occasion.

Simple, 4 step process

Boxes are tailormade in terms of dimensions, internal layout, wood, hardware, lining, and personalisation through plaques and marquetry.
