Love, love, love my plaque. Since I have a figure skater and a hockey player this covers both. Hard to find something that didn't just have to do with hockey or skating. My bosses know if they need me, they can find me at the rink. Communication was great and the packaging and delivery... spot on! Hope to get the chance to buy something else from Gwen.

Additional policies and FAQs
How will I know that my order has been received?
You will receive an email from the designer shortly after your online order confirming your plaque purchase and letting you know approximately how long it will take to complete your plaque. Please note that the email is not be an automated one, so there might be a small delay from the time you place your order until the time that you receive your confirmation.
How long will it take me to receive my plaque?
Plaques are generally completed and shipped within two-three weeks or less of the time of your order, with the exception of holiday times of year when the wait might be a bit longer. If you have a specific date that you need your plaque by, you should not hesitate to contact the design studio
Why do you misspell Tymely Designs?
Tymely Designs was named in honor of my son, Ty.
Can I ship to multiple locations?
Of course, I am happy to help you get your plaques to wherever you need to them go. There may be additional shipping charges for plaques sent to multiple locations. If you have any questions, please contact the design studio.
I would like a card included with my order. Can you do that? Is there an extra charge?
Tymely Designs would be happy to include a gift card at no extra charge to you. Please make a note of this on your order form or contact the studio with your specific message and I will be happy to assist you.
Will you wrap my plaque for me?
All of Tymely Designs’ plaques are custom wrapped. This is part of TD’s signature service. There is never a charge.
I have an idea for a plaque that I don’t see on your Etsy page. Can you paint this for me?
Yes, I would be happy to work with you to create your perfect plaque. Just email me and we can work out the details and I can provide you with a price and a custom Etsy listing.
Can I get a discount if I order more than one plaque?
Tymely Designs is a one woman show— from choosing lumber, answering emails and painting the plaques to packaging and shipping. Since I am unable to discount my time, I am unable to offer a discount on plaques. Know that I put a great deal of time and effort into each plaque so that you will feel proud to give it as a gift.
Is my plaque weatherproof?
All plaques are treated with water-based polyeurthane. Plaques that will be used exclusively indoors (child name signs, kitchen signs) are treated on the front. Plaques that will go outdoors (Welcome signs, address signs, etc.) have several coats of water based polyurethane applied to the front and back of your plaque making it safe to put outdoors in a sheltered spot. Note that since your plaque is crafted of real wood, it may react to severe temperatures, such as extreme heat or cold and if left uncovered it will react to the elements in the same way a wooden chair exposed to the elements would react.
Can I mix and match design elements?
Yes, you can! Because all of the work is custom, you can mix and match any plaque elements. Contact the design studio via Etsy conversations with your design ideas and we will work together to make them into a plaque and then I will create a custom listing for you.
Is my plaque ready to hang?
Yes, it is. Saw tooth hangers are attached to your plaque so that it is ready to hang and enjoy upon receipt (or d-ring hangers if you have purchased a ribbon plaque).
I’m unhappy. Can I return my plaque?
If the error is Tymely Designs’ I will absolutely make it right-- this rarely happens, but when it does... I'm all about saying I'm sorry and fixing the problem. I want you to be happy and satisfied. I also want to have you as a long term client so I will work with you to ensure your happiness. However, if the error is yours (ie: you spelled a name incorrectly on the order form or selected the wrong color) Tymely Designs can not be held responsible due to the custom nature of the product.
