Which materials can you etch/engrave/customize?
The most common materials are stainless steel (tumblers) and wood, but there are many materials that you can etch, including acrylic, glass, tile, paper, ceramic, and many more. Here is a complete list from Epilog.
What if i don't have an image file?
In most cases, we can work around having a high resolution image file, but it is ideal if you can provide one. Links to images online, photos of the image, or descriptions of the design have all been successfully used in lieu of an image file.
What if i don't have a design
Whether you have a file already or not, we will walk you through your ideas to help you create your custom design. We can take an existing image and recreate it so that the laser can read the file, or if you've never had an image for your business or group, ask about logo design!
The most commonly etched designs from existing customers are logos and images that represent something about the recipient (badges, business logos, sports teams, clubs, pets, or special interest groups), or those that commemorate an event (class reunions, weddings, retirement, graduation, races, promotions, or special awards). Often, images can be taken from existing invitations, or other branding that you may have.
Custom gifts for birthdays, anniversaries, and holidays are also very popular. Combine your love of dogs and your favorite sports team--the sky's the limit!
What if i have my own tumbler/material?
We do engrave BYO material projects for a separate fee. Just ask!
Do you offer group pricing?
Yes! We work hard to get our customers competitive pricing, but please understand that we are a small shop and we don't order in mass quantities that get the steepest discounts. We offer a truly custom product at a competitive price, and we will work with you to decide on an option that fits within your budget.
Can we use jeff's design shed's custom tumblers for a fundraiser?
Absolutely! We would love to help your group or non-profit raise funds. Please contact us for more details.
is my tumbler dishwasher safe?
The tumbler manufacturer does not recommend putting the tumblers in the dishwasher, so we do not recommend it. Please note that the design itself is created on an Epilog CO2 laser and will not rub off, but the components of the cup and lid will last longer if you hand wash them.
do you ship?
Absolutely! Within the United States isn't a problem. If you have other pick-up or shipping requests, just mention it when you contact us to request a design. Picking up your order within the Champaign-Urbana, IL area is free of charge. If your shipping location is outside the U.S., we will need to confirm if we can ship to your location and any additional cost involved.
