These are just a few of the reasons:

Why do you say your product is versatile?

Our unique process allows us to personalize any of our products to suit many needs.

An artist can expand his range of products to include having his work reproduced unto the switch plate, license plate, coasters and hot plates or mousepads, fridge magnets.

Or a gift shop can include a switch plate or coasters in their gift basket, with their company logo discreetly printed on one corner of the design, plus many more innovative ideas.

Organizations, institutions and associations can take advantage of our products for their fund raising activities and providing their members quality memorabilia.

Companies and corporations use our different products for branding purposes, as well as promotional gift items.

The versatility of our products makes our switch plates and license plates, as well as coasters and mousepads great as advertising giveaways or promotional ideas. They also make great special event favors, like weddings, baby showers, etc. And always, they make great Christmas gifts.

How are all your products made?

All our products are made by hand, individually, one at a time. Each type of product uses varying procedures for applying the designs. Making each of our product is labor intensive, more so for the coasters, license plates and magnets.

Benefits include, but are not limited to:
  • The LARGEST selection of decorative switch plates on different sizes and configuration on the internet.
  • Great home decor and gift ideas like Christmas Stocking stuffers!
  • Our switch plates are durable, flexible and have fire retardant properties and are suitable for use in any room indoors.
  • Our process applies the design over the entire surface, including the beveled edges of the switch plates.

How are your switch plates made?

Extreme care is employed to make each and every one of our switch plate as each design is manually applied. This part of our process makes each one unique and slightly different from the others.

Our process applies images and designs by decoupage on the switch plates. This makes the switchplates easy to clean and suitable for use in any indoor room.

Last but not least, the switch plates we use are high quality Leviton switch plates, said to be virtually unbreakable with fire retardant properties. They are also more flexible/pliable and will conform to wall deformities better than the brittle and breakable regular switch plates. These are switch plates used in most schools and hospitals.

Our switchplates designs can be ordered in regular (toggle) models from single to quad size, single decora (rocker), as well as single and double outlets (receptacles/plugs) and the combinations plates consisting of toggle switches and outlets. Not all designs are available in all types/sizes however.

We use standard size Leviton switch plates. The standard size is 2.75" x 4.50" for single switch plates and 4.50" x 4.50" for doubles (2-gang), 6.25" x 4.50" for triples (3-gang), and 8" x 4.50" for quads (or 4-gang).

Our line of Vanity License Plates are made of non-rusting, heavy gauge .025" aluminum; they have brilliant colours and won't ever rust.

Our process reproduces the designs on the license plates in full vibrant colors, producing photo quality images.

They are not good only for the front of your car, but they also make nice room decor. They certainly make for unique gifts for all occasions.

Some salient points are as follows:
  • Each of our ceramic coasters have full cork backing to prevent slipping.
  • Our coasters come in sets of 4.
  • The ceramic coasters come with a white gift box.
  • Just wipe with moist cloth to clean whenever necessary.
  • The coasters are approximately 4."x 4".

Fridge magnets are a unique giveaway, mementos for clubs, every day gifts and even wedding favors. Also great for company branding and marketing campaigns.

Our inexpensive ceramic fridge magnets are 2" x 2" with have full car magnet material backing.

Our paw print magnets measure 5.5" x 5.5" while the dog bone magnets are 7" x 2.25".

The mousepads we use are made of fine mesh cloth with soft rubber backing. There is an added high visual impact value to the designs because the colors are so rich.

Each mousepad is approximately 9.0" x 8.0" in size and about 1/8" thick. There might be some slight variations to the actual size and the shape of the rounded corners, as this depends mostly on the material our suppliers provide us.

Why is the shipping cost per set of coasters and trivets are higher than the other products??

Because the Ceramic Coasters and Trivets are heavy and they require special packaging materials to minimize breakage. The Post Office nor any couriers will cover breakage. Both factors add considerably to the overall cost of shipment.

What is the means by which you ship our orders?

All orders are shipped by surface mail unless a faster service at comparable rate is available.

How long does it take for our orders to get to us?

Excluding the Christmas season where all shipments are liable to be a few days late, our experience is, shipment within North America takes anywhere from 10-15 business days (count Monday through Friday only, exclude holidays as well).

On rare occasions, delivery has been known to be delayed as much as 30 days.

For your reference, shipment to Asia can take anywhere from 1 month to 9 months, depending on the destination country's local mail delivery system.

In general, shipment to international destinations takes about 4-6 weeks. After which, the distribution to the local mail centers becomes the factor as to when you get your order. Total time for expected delivery is 6-8 weeks.

The post office advises that it may take as long as 75 days from date of shipment for packages to get delivered.
