Frequently asked questions

General

How does the OG Full-Custom process work?


After submitting a custom order form and a sketch, one of our Project Managers will contact you with a quote. We'll break down everything so you can see where you might need to make adjustments to fit your budget. Once ready, we’ll send you a secure invoice for payment. As soon as payment is made, one of our designers will pick up the project and start digitizing your sketch. After he/she has finished the digital design, they will contact you for your approval. If you aren’t satisfied with the design, you have one complimentary edit to refine to your liking. Note that some edits may be too complex and incur an additional design fee. We’ll make sure to let you know if that’s the case. Once you approve the digital design, we will start the production process. We will provide updates during every stage of the design so you can be comfortable knowing exactly how your paddle is going to come out.

Pricing

What is the design rate?


Our designers will be creating your paddle from your sketch and reference pictures. Complexity determines the rate and starts at $25.




What is the set-up rate?


Because our custom process can differ from project to project, we require a set-up fee of $35. This fee is standard throughout custom processes.




Do you charge rush fees


We don’t like this fee at all. Your paddles are art pieces that will last a lifetime and we’d hate to rush it, but sometimes it is necessary to have a Project finished quickly. We offer unassembled options to meet deadlines under our 'current turnaround for custom work' time.




How can I reduce the cost?


There are a few ways to reduce the cost, but our recommendation is purchasing the paddle unassembled. You can save a good chunk of the paddle price by painting and sticking the letters on yourself. We have guides available to help! You can also save money by getting your whole class to order with us! Ask your project manager for how much!





Payments

When will I have to pay by?


To avoid any rush fees, please make sure to pay sooner than our 'current turnaround' time. Any payments made after will incur a rush fee.




What form of payments do you take?


We take Paypal, Debit/Credit Card, Cash, and Check.




How do I pay?


After you approve your paddle quote, we will send you a secure invoice. You do not need to have an account–you can still pay with a debit/credit card.




Do you do payment plans?


We are not accepting any payment plans at this time.





Shipping/Delivery

Where do you ship to?


We ship anywhere in the continental US. Anywhere outside of that range may incur expensive shipping fees.




How much is shipping?


Shipping for Custom Projects are not determined until production has finished. We'll send you an additional invoice for shipping costs. Please note that large custom projects can be very expensive to ship.




How much is local delivery?


We deliver up to 50 miles within Walnut, CA. Rates are $3/mile.




When can I pick up the paddle?


The Project Manager will let you know when the paddle is ready for pick up.





Personalize your design directly on the paddle itself with deep engraving.

When we created the first mirror paddle back in 2013, we were stunned. It was a thing of beauty and we had to keep making more. Available in different sizes and shapes.

If it's going to be on your wall, might as well add a clock—even if no one reads analog anymore. Customize the clock face with any design.

Bright LEDs with RGB settings bring the full spectrum of colors to your disposal. These are great accent enhancers and makes a great nightlight for rooms.
