FlasksPlus' Shop Announcement

Welcome to the Combined Web store for Flasks Plus and Chain Reactions. Both web addresses will bring you to this same location. The top few pages of this site are devoted to products promoted and sold by Chain Reactions, while the remaining pages display and sell products produced by Flasks Plus.

I own and run the Flasks Plus side of things, while my wife, Janeen, runs Chain Reactions. We attempted to open and run a second Etsy store for my wife, but she admittedly was not very good or quick about responding to emails, orders, etc. I've been selling online since 1998, and here on Etsy for about a decade. So, it made sense for us to combine our two sites, where I can monitor the sales and inquiries from both sides. That allows my wife to do what she does best: Measure, cut and bind necklace chain.

For those of you who have shopped Flasks Plus for years, nothing has changed. We simply combined a few of the flask option pages, to make room for us to add a few pages where we can promote my wife's chain and pendant options.

DESCRIPTION OF CHAIN REACTIONS:

This is a very unique business my wife runs, started in Tennessee in 2000 by my father. He got her started with it about 2 years ago, where we started setting up at various area craft shows since then. Beginning in late December of 2014, we added her line of products here in this Etsy store, normally dominated by products created and promoted by Flasks Plus.

Her primary product lines are pure 100% surgical stainless steel necklace chain options, half of which are also plated with 18k gold. These chain options come rolled up on spools with several yards of chain on each one. My wife cuts your chain by the exact inches measurement you purchase/request. She then cuts and binds your chain, before slipping them in a protective plastic baggie for mailing! She also mounts pendants on your chain for you, if you also purchase pendants from her at the same time.

Her secondary product lines are necklace pendant options, which she discounts along side purchases of 20 inches or more of her chain. To receive those discounts, the pendant(s) must be purchased on the same date as the chain.

Feel free to combine your purchases between both stores located here on the same site.

DESCRIPTION OF FLASKS PLUS:

Basically, I create color coated stainless steel flask products, offered in up to 7 different sizes. I can also custom laser your flasks, but do not laser "etch" them. "Etching" involves the carving away of the flask's surface, which weakens the flask walls, and frequently causes them to leak in time. Instead, I laser burn-cut through your color choice, to the stainless steel below. For the leather-wrapped stainless steel flask styles, I burn through your choice of color, and INTO but not all the way through the leather wrap. This produces a beautiful and even burn-cut Black appearance everywhere where the laser affects your flasks.

I offer in-country customers FREE shipping upgrades with the purchase of more than one regular priced flask, and include a FREE flask funnel with over 99% of what I sell here. See the flask listings for more details on both offers.

CHECK OUT OUR GROWING LIST OF "READY TO SHIP" Flask Listings! Click on the page link to the left, entitled: "Ready To Ship Flask Sets". All of the listings on that page of our Etsy shop promote flask-funnel sets that are ready to ship by the day you order and submit your payment, or by the next business day at the latest. This means we won't be able to customize any of those, but we can quickly serve those of you who want them just as they are shown, and shipped right away.

To customize any of them will require a production time wait of anywhere from 3-6 business days, to account for color drying time, clearcoat sealer time, and whatever the wait time is for orders at any given time during the year. The flasks in this category will already be made and on our shelves. We will strive to have anywhere from 5 to 20 of each of them ready for immediate shipping, based on their popularity. Feel free to email us in advance to see how many we have before you place your order.

As usual, you can order from any of our other flask listings, and request the FREE custom 1-sided lasering on them. For those, you should expect normal delays associated with creating a custom order from scratch.

NOTE: You can change the color of ANY of our regular priced flask products!! Our full color list wouldn't fit on this page. You can see them ALL at:
http://robertorrjr.tripod.com/flasksplus - - - Once there, click on the "Color Options" page link.

- - - That site includes pictures of every color option on one of our flasks. That can help you see what these colors look like when applied.

Also, Check Out The Affordable Upgrades Available, and explained on that information-only site:

Delivery Confirmation Tracking Services = $2.00 more for single-flask in-country purchases (Delivery Confirmation is not available for out-of-country packages).

NOTE: In-country orders of more than one flask-funnel purchase not only receive a Priority Mail shipping upgrade, but Delivery Confirmation tracking services, FREE of charge as well! These are just TWO ways we are ALWAYS trying to please our customers!

*****************************************************************

Though it may seem like a LOT of information contained within each of our flask listings, it's really not. The nice "problem" our customers have is that they have SO many choices to make, among SO many options. Some people believe they can save time by emailing questions to us, when ALL of their answers are in front of them on our information-only web site. Feel free to email, if you like, but by doing so, you're spending time waiting for us to reply by email. That same time could be spent visiting http://robertorrjr.tripod.com/flasksplus/, and checking out the user-friendly information-specific page links.

To help keep our listing description areas smaller, with less reading to go through, we created that information-only web site. Again, that extension web site, found at: http://robertorrjr.tripod.com/flasksplus/, explains ALL of your flask-related options. Many of them are completely FREE, and allow you to be about as creative as you want to be with your flask(s). We also offer several fee-based options as well. Check them ALL out at:

http://robertorrjr.tripod.com/flasksplus/

Using that link above, you can find two separate lists that show ALL of the colors we offer to make your flask order with, as well as a page that shows a flask made in each of the colors we offer! One color list shows our non-Metallic options, while the second one shows our Metallic choices.

If you want to know what TYPE of images work with this kind of 1-dimensional lasering, http://robertorrjr.tripod.com/flasksplus/ explains it for you, and shows you clear examples! We also provide an easy explanation as to how you can perform a simple image search for the TYPE and size image(s) you can use for this type of laser art.

The list below can give you an idea of the additional FREE options we offer and explain more on http://robertorrjr.tripod.com/flasksplus/:

**For U.S.-based customers, you can receive a FREE shipping upgrade to the swifter Priority Mail option, by simply buying 2 or more flask-funnel sets from ANY of the size options we offer here on this Etsy store site.

Some of the fee-based options you can add to your order include the following:

**"RUSH Service" can be added for just $2.00 per flask ordered.

**"Overnight Express Mail" can be added for orders that need to be at in-country locations overnight, once they're customized and ready for shipping. How much that will cost will depend on your total package weight.
NOTE: "Overnight Express" service is not available for orders being shipped outside the United States.
