BlacksmithCreations' Shop Announcement

**CURRENT TURNAROUND in 5 WEEKS** Horseshoe Hearts, Wedding Western Decor, 6th, 7th & 11th for iron, steel, copper anniversary. Cake toppers for wedding & special keepsake after. Engraving is available for your personalization. Carefully crafted to achieve heirloom quality for the perfect gift or keepsake.

Ours is a family business: Steve creates the orders from real horseshoes, Carolyn handles the communication, and we both really appreciate our customers, like you!

What sets the work apart from other horseshoe artists is Steve's attention to detail.
Notice the sizing, spacing, proportions, clean welds, and placement of the crevices on each horseshoe piece. Welding blobs are filed away, horseshoes are sanded, joints are perfectly matched, letters are proportioned, even the inside of the shoes are finished. They are all well thought out, to make a beautiful keepsake to give or keep.
If Steve isn't happy with his work for you, he doesn't let it out of his shoppe. If you're not happy, we'll correct it.
Engraving allows more letters (i.e. longer names) than stamped shoes.

Cake toppers can be used during the wedding AND after as a great keepsake to hang on wall or place on the shelf *** twice the functionality for the price of one *** (I remember my cake topper which ended up in the drawer, never to be seen again. Wish I had known to do this for my own wedding!

WHEN YOU ORDER, PLEASE ADD YOUR PHONE NUMBER IN THE COMMENTS PAGE DURING CHECKOUT. WE'VE HAD SEVERAL RECENT SITUATIONS WITH NO RESPONSE TO OUR QUESTIONS, AND THAT EITHER SLOWS THE PROCESS DOWN, OR IN EXTREME CASES, CAUSES US TO CANCEL YOUR ORDER.
Neither of us wants this situation, and it's easy to text you or give you a call to keep your custom order moving along....

Time crunch? We have Plan "B", click read more. If timing is tight, we offer "PLAN B" for gifts. We email a photo of your completed order, you print picture, you include in card or wrap it in a box! The real thing arrives in your mailbox within a few days. It works well....
Your gift giving is timely to the lucky recipient. (will work for best for anniversaries or other events except a wedding where you need it there)

Horseshoes are made from iron. Iron is mixed with certain other metals and with carbon to form steels, to create horseshoes. That's why they are perfect for traditional anniversary gifts of iron and steel.
These are the real deal, from St. Croix and Diamond manufacturers. We use only REAL, new, clean (no manure) horseshoes. No cast iron replicas here.....

Here's a comment from a few customers that used our Plan B:
A) "I gave Mark & Julie their present virtually yesterday on their anniversary - used the photo along with a copy of my message. They LOVED it!!! Thank you again."
B) "you made me look good!"
C) "If the item is not available on time I will take plan B. I do agree that it is a great idea."

Our original products are still offered...have fire pit stands for camping (in the left column):

To have the best looking engraving, we partner with a professional engraver, Stuckis Engravers. We handle all the details with the engraver, so you don't have to.

To indicate your engraving request, you'll find a comments box towards the end of your order process. Please indicate how you'd like the engraving to look, using the capital and lower case letters, and the dots, dashes or slashes for the date.
If you are not happy, please let us know immediately, before you leave feedback, and we'll happily correct whatever it is.

NOTE: Even new horseshoes are inherently rough and some of that rustic-ness remains in each piece. They may look like slight imperfections, because it's the nature of the material,...differences add character and originality to each unique piece.
There will be slight variations in size, shape, or color from what you might see in the pictures, as each is handmade to order.

Optional - no extra charge: At your request, we will ship the gift directly to the couple, with no invoice. Let us know if we are shipping to an address that is not yours.....(we can't always tell). We will add a note card placed with the item. Just let us know what you want it to say, and from whom (other family members?).

WE SHIP INTERNATIONALLY.

.... QUESTIONS TO YOU, THAT WOULD BE HELPFUL FOR US TO KNOW WHEN YOU PURCHASE, AND CAN BE ADDED IN THE COMMENTS BOX AT CHECKOUT .....

1. What's your TIME FRAME? Expedited? Let us know that immediately so we can create your order accordingly. If we can't accommodate, will let you know the time frame, via email within 48 hours.

2. If you haven't already indicated, what format would you like in your engraving request?
06.08.2014, 06.08.14, 6.8.14, or would you like a dash or slash in-between the numbers? SUGGESTION; the more characters, the smaller the font will be to fit it into a small space. Less characters makes the engraving pop because it's bolder and cleaner. Less is more in this case.
We will have the piece engraved exactly how you spell it. To indicate your engraving request, you'll find a comments box towards the end of your order process. Please indicate how you'd like the engraving to look, using the capital and lower case letters, and the dots, dashes or slashes for the date.

3. If your order is mailed to another person's address, or, if you'd like a card with your comments included, and LET US KNOW your thoughts and what names to include on the note (other family members?). Please use the email/convo area of Etsy, to keep your comments in the same system

ONE LAST FEEDBACK. We try whenever possible.....
"This was a great choice for the iron anniversary gift! Blacksmith Creations was extraordinarily thoughtful in its communication with me given the fact that I placed my order one week prior to my anniversary and would not be able to receive the gift by that date (which was MY fault for procrastinating). They were able to e-mail me a photo of the completed gift for my wife's card and rushed its delivery so that I had it a few days after the fact. I couldn't have been more pleased with the concern and care they conveyed! Thank you VERY much and I look forward to doing business with you again!!!"
