About

Laser cutting and engraving our way to a fun future!

We are Jeff and Kate Smith! We are a husband/wife home business specializing in laser cutting and etching, along with various other crafts. We started The Crafty Smiths in Washington state in October of 2011 (we originally called ourself JSK Creative Designs, but no one could remember it). Our first products were actually paracord bracelets, which we sold for two months before investing in a hobby-grade laser cutter so we could cut out paper snowflakes and engrave simple wood signs. We continued to sell paracord bracelets for a couple more years, but our laser cut products were what we and our customers were really interested in!

Those were the early days of our business, when both Kate and I had separate full-time jobs that we enjoyed, but wanted to find something to do in our spare time that could actually help pay for our hobby! We figured it would be great if someday we could quit and jobs and work together from home on a business that we created from the ground up!

In March of 2012, just a few months after we started the business, Kate landed a new job in Phoenix, Arizona. So rather than try to find a new job in a new city, I chose to pursue the growth of our small business. After a month of living in Kate's parents' house and not having much access to our tools (all of our equipment was in a storage unit!), we finally bought and moved into our first home, which had a spacious 2.5 car garage. This meant we had plenty of room to set up the tools in the extra half-car portion of the garage while we managed to fit both of our vehicles inside too!

Well, that didn't last long as our online sales really took off and by the end of 2012, we had upgraded from our cheap hobby laser (it got the job done, albeit slowly and inaccurately) to an professional-quality laser system with a significantly larger capacity. Our new machine is also incredibly accurate and many times faster than our hobby machine!

Fast forward to today, and we now have two of these laser cutters running at any given time, plus several large woodworking machines, which combined take up more than half of the 2.5 car garage. We receive dozens of requests each day from interested clients regarding our wedding invitations and favors, among other things, and our clients continue to rave about our customer service!

Nothing makes us happier than a satisfied customer!

We want you to tell your friends and come back for more! We also encourage you to like us on Facebook and share our items with your friends and family.

Definitely contact us if you would like to learn more about us or our products, or are interested in wholesale pricing for sale in your own retail location! We can't wait to work with you!

We accept PayPal and all major credit cards through Etsy Direct Pay. All payments are due immediately, with the exception of larger custom orders, in which case we may ask for a deposit before starting work.

All orders shipped to Arizona will be subject to 8.6% sales tax.
Shipping
We typically sell to customers within the United Stated, including Alaska, Hawaii, and territories. We also ship around the world. Most of our items have shipping prices associated, but feel free to contact us if you special requests. Customers are responsible for any customs and duties associated with their purchases.

Our products ship almost exclusively through the United States Postal Service. Smaller items tend to ship using First-Class Mail with tracking information, while larger or more expensive items ship using Priority Mail for fast delivery. You will always receive a tracking number! Also, let us know if you would like to upgrade to even faster shipping!
Refunds and Exchanges
Most of our products are eligible for our 14 day return policy. Keep in mind that we do require the customer to pay for return shipping. Any shipping amount that was part of the original transaction is nonrefundable.

Custom orders are nonrefundable. However, if a product arrives damaged or doesn't meet your requirements, we will absolutely get you a replacement or fix it on our dime. 100% customer satisfaction is our ultimate goal.
Additional policies and FAQs
Sometimes it can be difficult to really get a feel for an item until you hold it in your hands, flip it over, shake it, lick it... Therefore, we are always willing to send samples of some of our work.

We absolutely LOVE custom orders. Not only does it give our customers a chance at something unique, but it allows us to stray from our usual and have some fun creating an item that you absolutely love.

Along these same lines, if you are interested in larger quantities of any item we have available for sale (for resale, etc.) just let us know. It is cheaper for us to make 100 of the same item for one person than it is to make one for 100 different people, and we will definitely pass along the savings!
