ouzel's Shop Announcement

Sept 2014

I design the shape and size of the tag at the same time I design the surface decoration. I do one sided and two sided tags. Price is based upon size, qty, thickness. All standard finishes are the same price. Allow 40 days for single sided tags and 50 days for double sided tags. if you have a rush order there is a minimum order size which we can discuss on the phone. Rush orders are priced 30% higher than standard orders. Rush time frame will be discussed and agreed by conversation.

Along with the standard brass and electroplated brass I can also do solid sterling silver, stainless steel, copper, brass, nickel silver. Min order is 50 pieces. An average single sided 200 pc order averages around $100. An average 100 pc order is around $70.

An average double sided tag order is $90 for 100 pcs and $150 for 200 pieces.

We can add color to tags in several ways. We can clear coat them. We can polish. We can hammer the surface. We can make tags with no holes and tags with multiple holes. The size and location of the hole is your decision.

We can add jump rings to match the finish. We have many sizes of jump rings

Standard shipping for a 2ounce package $4.50 use, $6.50 UK and CAN, $8.50- 13 other places. If your package weighs more the price of the postage will follow. Priority mail in the USA is $8.50. Priority International is $22. We can also ship with other carriers. Clients must request and purchase insurance as an add-on. We are not responsible for lost packages.

Preferred contact method for USA clients: Phone conversation. Please call during my work hours. I will take notes and respond with a written proposal. Second preferred contact method is via Etsy Conversation. If, for some reason, you are not getting a swift reply, it's because I wear many hats and the priority is always given to the orders shipping. I want to respond immediately and fully to emails but sometimes it's just impossible. I have to maintain a balance with life. Please do not hesitate to call to discuss your tag project in person. A conversation on the phone is invaluable for me to know more about the project.
