Announcement    *~ Important Notice (incl. Christmas orders)~*
Due to the ongoing global pandemic, all shipments are likely to be delayed as shipping services are working with fewer staff and are slower than usual - as a result estimated Etsy dates are currently not accurate. At present please note that we cannot guarantee any arrival dates.

Related to this, some components of our props (plastics, paints etc), including those which light up, are taking longer to get to us. As a result, please note that some orders are leaving slower than usual, we will endeavour to keep all customers who are affected informed though.

Please note that if we have started making your prop and your event is cancelled, then we will be unable to offer a full refund as we have already paid out for materials.

*~ Customers with deadlines ~*

Please note that dates given on order pages and orders are estimates only as props are in high demand and shipping times can vary (we can also not ship as often due to the pandemic) - please message us if you plan to place any orders with a deadline and we can let you know if it is feasible to get it to you in time :)

Unfortunately if orders are placed for specific deadlines and we are unaware of any deadline we cannot guarantee arrival in time.

About Chompworks

Sales 5,856
On Etsy since 2014

We make cosplay and other items for you, using the miracle of 3D Printing!

After realising making props and costume parts by hand was time consuming, and rarely as nice as we'd imagined it, we invested in a 3D Printer.

We made a crown for a cosplay, and it was popular. Friends asked for more crowns for different characters. Then there were brooches. Then there were 3D printed props and weapons. Before we knew it, we were taking commissions, and 5 years after starting our etsy shop, we're still working hard to share our work with the world! We hope you like it, world! ;P

Frequently asked questions
What texture do your props have?

As with all 3D printed items - there is often a ribbed/ridged texture from the way the items are printed. Message us before ordering if you would like more information :)

For people buying raw prints where we do no post processing, we are always happy to offer advice for finishing and painting them :)

Are these toys?

Unless explicitly stated otherwise in a listing, none of our items are toys.
They may have small parts or sharp points/edges as part of their design.
We do not recommend them for young children, and recommend that if children do hold the props, that they are supervised at all times to prevent damage to themselves, others, and/or the props.
By buying from us, we take it as your agreement that use and/or misuse of a prop, and any breakage through rough use is entirely your responsibility as a buyer.

Is there tracking information available for my order?

Our standard free shipping does not include tracking - as the UK postal service, Royal Mail, tends to charge an additional £5 for tracking, which we would unfortunately have to pass on to you as the buyer.

Due to this cost, many buyers would rather have cheaper products, however we're more than happy to provide tracked shipping - if you would like tracked shipping on your order, please upgrade to tracked shipping when making a purchase.

Within the UK the tracked shipping is Royal Mail Signed for - if you wish to use Special Delivery please contact us for a quote.

Can I commission a custom item?

Yes!
Normally, we tend to make once and print for multiple people, so that the cost of modelling an item is spread out between everyone. However if you'd like a bespoke custom piece, we can do that! We take two payments for most custom items - the first is a non-refundable deposit and second is due on completion of the item before we ship it - send us a message for a quote!

Will my prop look exactly like my friend's prop?

We try our best to ensure consistency between all of our props. Sometimes however we may use a different 3D printer, or newer 3D printing techniques as we constantly try to improve what we make.

We also try our hardest to use standardised colours and plastics for props, but we cannot guarantee we will use the exact same ones - as sometimes we've hit the situation where suppliers have discontinued a material or paint - forcing us to find a different one, or we've found a newer, better colour or material or even that someone has requested a custom colour scheme.

If you have any concerns or worries about this, please contact us!

I need to cancel my order more than 48 hours after ordering, will I receive a full refund?

When we receive an order, work will usually begin shortly after - if your order has been printed or competed then your refund may be less depending on the labor and materials already used.

My order hasn't arrived - what should I do?

Contact us! We're happy to give shipping details and estimate arrival times, and in the rare case that an item is lost in the mail our policy is always to replace it :)
