Good for the exceptional and humorous.

We're a husband and wife team from the Great Pacific Northwest and we make goods for the exceptional and humorous.. We draw inspiration for our designs from the natural beauty that surrounds us as well as from our adventures of family life and personal (geeky) interests.

We purchased our industrial laser in May of 2014 and our creative lives have been changed forever. John has been working professionally with laser engravers and graphic design work for 12+ years. Thea has been involved in the makers movement for 14+ years (www.theastarr.com), with a professional background and education in business management and accounting.

ALL of our artwork is designed by us and ALL laser cutting, engraving and packaging is done in our home studio. We take in pride in sourcing American made and reclaimed materials for our work. We take the time to hand sand any "laser burn" off so our designs have a crisp clean look.

We're parents of six grown kids and two fur babies.
Be sure to follow us on Facebook and Instagram for posting of our current projects and our daily adventures.

We provide, retail, wholesale and custom work for everyone from our neighbors, fellow maker friends, and big companies too. You get an old fashioned mom and pop connection when working with us, just with fast computers, awesome photos and lasers.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Q. Do you do rush orders?
A. YES! We do need to charge a fee and the applicable shipping rush fee (depending on the size of the job) to accommodate rush requests.

Q. Do you have other state shaped chalkboards available?
A. The short answer is no. The states we have listed in our shop are the ones we have available. We design our state shaped chalkboards to fit together. Many states are very small or odd shaped. We do have designs for many states that are not listed in our shop, but we release them as the demand comes in. Please feel free to ask us directly about a particular state or country shapes.

Q. What is your custom order process?
A. *UPDATED February 2019*: WE NO LONGER OFFER CUSTOM SERVICES THROUGH ETSY. Please contact us through our own URL for custom work.

Q. Why don't your products have "laser burn"?
A. We really don't like that look so we take the time and effort to dial in the correct settings on our laser and/or hand sand our products to prevent it.

Q. Can I order one custom keychain?
A. Yes, but it might be a lot more than you'd like to pay for it. **UPDATED February 2019*: WE NO LONGER OFFER CUSTOM SERVICES THROUGH ETSY. Please contact us through our own URL for custom work.

Q. Do you guys really have 6 kids?
A. Yes. We are a blended family of grown children.
