About

AltGuild

Hey! We are delighted that you decided to take a closer look at us.

Our names are Chris and Leanne. We are also known in the hacker/maker space as Baldtraveller and Tananda.

We are both avid hackers, makers, tinkerers, artists and all around creators.

In 2013 the economy took its toll and put us out of work, but we were
fortunate shortly thereafter to have made a decent comeback do to our
tinkering with Bitcoin. This has allowed us to pursue our passions.

We love to travel and also create. We recognized early that we could only
afford to do one well. So the idea came about to start selling our creations
and use the funds to support our creative projects, freeing us to be able to
still travel and meet all kinds of other makers.

Above you may see some pictures. They are a collage of work spaces,
projects and fun times building and creating. We like to be involved and to get others involved in the creative process. One of our favorite things to do is teach shop classes to homeschoolers who would ordinarily miss out on such activities. There is nothing more gratifying than to introduce a girl to power tools, or help a boy discover a passion for calligraphy and wood burning.

Also If you wish to see a video of exactly what goes into making your leather travelers notebook cover please copy and paste the link below into your browser.

Have a good look around and remember...

Void your warranty, violate a user agreement, fry a circuit, blow a fuse, poke an eye out.

Best wishes,
Baldi and Tanada.

Shipping
SHIPPING:

*** Customers from Nunavut Canada. Please contact me first before purchase. ***

Because of the odd shapes and designs of our items, we may need a few days to ensure packaging is done correctly to protect your purchase.

I reuse all shipping materials in order to lower my impact on the environment and to keep the cost of shipping down.

Tracking is required on all purchase $150 or greater. Please make sure you are available to accept delivery.

I am happy to refund over payment for shipping back to your Etsy account.
Feel free to contact me before purchasing if you want a clearer shipping quote for your item.

Combined shipping can be done if the items can be safely shipped in the same carton. Again I am happy to refund any over payment directly to your Etsy account when shipping. Cost may be higher due to weight increase with combined shipping.

*** SHIPPING TIME ***
Please be aware that shipping time from Canada to international destinations via SURFACE is no longer used as the time it takes is not acceptable. As an example. My shortest time to the UK has been 3 weeks and my longest time for the same type of package has been 8 weeks. International air is 14 business days. Your patience is needed and greatly appreciated.

If you need your item faster, please contact me via the Conversation button at the top of this page before you purchase and I will be happy to do my best to accommodate you. Shipping cost from Canada are very high and present a constant challenge in trying to be competitive and fare in the online market. I do my best to keep your cost low.
Refunds and Exchanges
*** IMPORTANT PLEASE READ ***

RETURNS:
Returns are not accepted.
We do our best to make sure you are fully informed about the product, and we are happy to answer questions prior to purchase. All items are pre-tested and cleaned prior to leaving our work shop. Our policy is firm, so decide carefully please. Please refer to Shipping Damage further below for additional information.

SHIPPING DAMAGES:

We do not refund shipping charges. All shipping charges are the buyer’s responsibility.

All items that are approximately $150 or more must be insured to protect both the buyer and seller in the event of shipping damage. If your item is under $150 and you would like insurance then please contact me prior to purchase for additional cost. I'm doing my best to keep shipping at its lowest.

All of my items are highly unique and may not be replaceable. Do to this uniqueness we may not be able to help in the event of damage. We try to be fair and will judge this on an individual basis. All shipping costs are the responsibility of the Buyer. So if a part breaks during shipping and I can replace the broken part. Then the shipping for that new part will be paid by the customer.

Please keep in mind that we are available and approachable to discuss any problem. It’s my goal to keep you, the customer, happy.
Additional policies and FAQs
SCAMS, THREATS, EXTORTION:

It’s unfortunate but scams involving “bad feedback extortion attempts” are happening more and more to my fellow Etsy Makers. As a result any communication from the buyer suggesting that they will leave bad feed back if we do not refund a portion of their purchase will be considered extortion and will be immediately reported, and there account added to the D.N.D.B (Do Not Do Business with) data base. This also goes for any other unknown or new types of scams, or abuses that come up.


Almost all my items are created from purposely selected upcycled/recycled materials. As a result there can be imperfections, scratches, dents that I have deemed part of the objects overall appeal. Wiring, switches, bulbs, sockets are new for safety reasons.
