Note from shop owner 16/04 update: I'm temporarily putting the shop in holiday mode. I am not going anywhere, I'm still here working on all your orders, please don't panic. I am unsure when I will be able to get the materials needed for future orders. I have enough materials and supplies right now to comfortably complete the orders I have on.
I will start taking orders again when my suppliers reopen.

14/04 update: ok guys, the first of the overdue orders will start to ship by the end of this week, then into next week. I am hoping to have caught up by midweek next week so that orders will then ship within their original estimates. My apologies for the delay, this has been a massive spanner in the works! Thank you so much for your patience, understanding and continued custom.

05/04 update: I'm hoping that I will start sending orders out soon starting from next week 13/04. Very sorry to the customers who's orders have gone over the estimate. With all the confusion that was going on over the last few weeks and not knowing if I should be sending orders out or not, I made the decision to move on and start production on the next batch instead of wasting time being on hold. Please remember that the usual estimated dispatch time is 4-6 weeks guys, I've had a few messages from customers asking where their order is after only a couple of weeks, there's no need to panic, no one has ever been forgotten. Please expect your orders to go to the long end of the estimate, with all the disruption some will (and have) gone over the estimate but hopefully it should level out as the weeks go on.

24/03/ Latest update: There will be no collections or deliveries to the workshop for the time being so there will be a delay for some orders. For the moment I can carry on working and be in complete isolation.
Very sorry for delay.

19/03/Quick update on the current situation guys:
Everything is still going on as normal here in the workshop and as I work alone all day every day (it's a lonely old life lol) I'm hoping my business wont be too drastically affected. There may be delays due to delivery as don't know as yet of how that will be affected. So all I want to do is reassure customers that your orders will still be going forward. Take care folks.

Frequently asked questions
Can I have this in a different colour, size or customised to my own liking?

I don't offer custom sizes sorry but I am now pleased to announce that I can offer custom colour frames! Custom colours are an additional cost not only to cover the cost of the paint but also for the down time between clearing out the guns and spray booth.

I can also swap the chalk and cork inserts around if you prefer to have a larger chalk area than cork. Please leave a note in the "note to seller" section stating you would like them swapped.

Where is my order? / Can I have an update on my order please?

Without doubt the most frequently asked question! Barely a day goes by without this question being asked with many customers wanting an update within a short period of ordering.

Before asking please ask yourself these questions:
"How long have I actually waited for?
Do I really need an update?"

Please accept that all my products are made to order, current estimated dispatch time can be found under each listing. Orders can be sent anywhere within or around this time frame.
I can't give an accurate date of dispatch sorry as I am continuously working on many orders at the same time, your order will be sent as soon as its ready.
PLEASE ONLY ORDER IF YOU HAVE THE PATIENCE TO WAIT UNTIL YOUR NOTICEBOARD IS READY

Why does it take so long?

There's only so many products I can make per batch.
This is a one man operation in a relatively small workshop.
With batch production some orders may take up to the full extent of the estimate and some end up being sent a little earlier than the stated estimate, depending on when the order was placed and at what point of the process I am at in making the batch. Each batch of noticeboards takes around 4 weeks from start to finish, they are a time consuming product to make and a lot of work goes into making them!

We are getting close to the estimated deadline, is it going to go over?

There are occasions when some orders from a batch go a little over the estimate, this is never something I am happy about and causes me great stress!
I try my absolute best to get orders out in a timely fashion and within the estimate but sometimes it can't be helped if I've had a set back or if I've had an unusually busy month of sales. If your order is looking like its going to go over the estimate I will contact you and let you know.

Is there any way I can get this sooner than the stated estimate?

There is NO WAY of jumping the queue, for love nor money! For friend, family or for an extra cash incentive. everyone waits their turn. In fact ive had friends and family members happily wait longer! They've usually seen one of my noticeboards in person so they know its worth the wait :0)

Can I use liquid chalk pens?

The chalkboard paint I use is designed to be used with standard chalk or chalk pens *BUT* cheap pound shop chalk pens, (ones that say window marker on the side) will always leave ghosting/permanent writing and will not come off! Make sure you buy quality chalk pens that have good online reviews like the pens made by Rainbow Chalk Markers.
The draw back of liquid chalk pens is that they dry out quickly, at first they seem great but soon become unusable. My recommendation is to use standard chalk.

My item arrived damaged!

This is the Etsy message I fear the most!

Thankfully its rare that it happens but once in a while it does happen :0(

If your noticeboard gets damaged during transit, please break this news to me gently!
A simple "Hi Leigh, the noticeboard is beautiful but unfortunately its been damaged during transit" kind of softens the blow of what is upsetting news for me!

There really is no need to get all shouty shouty, and offensive towards me. I know its disappointing to wait so long for something only for it to turn up damaged, its totally out of my control once ive sent the parcel. It is also very upsetting to hear that something ive worked so hard and spent so much time and effort on gets mishandled.

I will resolve the issue ASAP.
