I've purchased about 20 plates from the Mad Platters and LOVE every one! High quality with even better customer service.
It's fun to see a design transformed into a melamine plate.
Hooray! Melamine plates are back and we are so lucky to have customers that like TheMadPlatters plates and platters.
I joined Etsy in 2007 and I can't imagine life without my Etsy shops! TheMadPlatters Etsy shop is presently one of our two shops. Many of our plates and platters feature designs directly related to our Dictionary Page Art Prints and the famous Lina Cavalieri engraving at our other shop, http://fauxkiss.etsy.com. TheMadPlatter plates are my original plate designs mostly sourced from vintage or antique artwork, enhanced and/or altered by me. My husband, Kit helps with processing customer orders and lots of miscellaneous tasks and where ever help is needed. Kit also does most of the cooking so I have more time to create.
THE PROCESS: While I design my plates here in my home studio, each is “made to order” by a third party, a plate manufacturer in the USA. Once I've completed a plate design and put it into the format for the manufacturing process, the template needs approval from the manufacturer. Once approved, I order a test run plate to see the design in person, that is as a melamine plate. Sometimes the design is not as I envisioned once it becomes a plate, requiring modifications and several test runs.
When an Etsy customer places an order I contact the manufacturer with all the necessary information to manufacture their custom plate. Manufacturing turn around time is usually about 5 business days but can be up to ten. To expedite shipping time and save shipping fees, the USA company that manufactures my plates ships them to my customers instead of to me (so they are not getting shipped two times, first to em then to my customers).
Both Kit and I feel very lucky to have found Etsy and especially thankful for customers that enjoy our dinnerware! Thank You!
I've always had a passion for nature and beautiful things. I grew up in the country and many of my earliest memories are of all the wonders to be found exploring the dense woods behind us and in that creek running through our yard.
Husband + Helper
My hobby is woodworking -and- helping Jean with handling customer plate and platter orders.
Melamine Dinnerware made here in the USA
The manufacturer has been creating customized melamine dinnerware for over 40 years and is located in the USA. We have worked together since 2011.
Plates are best in person! It seems impossible to capture the color and details of the artwork for the web view. PLEASE NOTE: that the view online will vary between different monitors and the view on a monitor differs some from the plate in person.
The Mad Platters is our 2nd Etsy shop. Many of my plates and platters feature designs directly related to my Dictionary Page Art Prints found at http://fauxkiss.etsy.com

Additional policies and FAQs
Some my listings look faded on my husband's monitor while showing brilliant color on my calibrated monitor, and if you have a wide screen monitor, the colors on your monitor will be overly saturated and/or bright. I keep my working monitor calibrated to ensure a professional working environment.
