Got these for my dad since he loves listening to vinyl and Miles Davis is one of his favorite jazz artist. The coasters are great arrived well packaged and on time.

My dad is going to love these coasters! Super fast shipping too. Thank you for packaging them so securely, I dropped them when I pulled the package out of the mailbox, no harm done!

I bought these as a gift and I had to take a peek at them before I re-wrap them. They are so rad I almost want to keep them for myself. Seller was a great communicator, sent a confirmation on the 4 album covers I picked, and the final product exceeded expectations... and they shipped super quickly. Very happy overall.
Hand crafted coasters.
A few years ago we moved from Chicago to Claremont so our son with Cerebral Palsy could attend a first rate public school with a fantastic special needs program. The move has been great for my son and great for our family since I decided to become a full time crafter. We enjoy living in Claremont, CA a small college town nestled in the foothills of the San Gabriel mountains just east of Los Angeles. The city of "Trees and PHD's".
As a child I was always good in arts and crafts and enjoyed making things. I made a short series of coasters for a local gift store and friends loved the hand made quality and craftsmanship. They suggested I broaden the scope of designs. Fortunately I am married to a graphic designer who creates original graphics for my coasters. I take a lot of pride in creating these coasters. After a lot of experimentation I came up with an 8 step process that takes a whole day to make and then an additional 2 days to cure but the quality is first rate and worth the extra time.
I sell the majority of my coasters at a local craft fair. This is great because I get feedback on new themes to create so my inventory is growing as fast as I can make them. My Etsy store does not show all of my inventory because many times the items are sold before I can take a pic :) I can tell you that the pics just don't do justice to my coasters because you can't touch and feel how incredible they are. They have a nice mild grain to them along with a matte finish. Our customer feedback has been great. We get a lot of repeat business from the craft fair and it turns out that quite a few of our customers have started collecting the coasters and using them as wall decor or displaying them on a small easel on a bookcase or night stand.
Lately I have been retained to create custom corporate bulk orders. This has been exciting because it validates the quality and durability that I strive to maintain with each coaster set I create. Although my price point is a little higher than many others it is well worth the time and materials that I use to provide the best quality possible.
I hope you enjoyed my story. Please visit my store and let me know which designs are your favorites as I fine tune inventory and upcoming designs.
