---------------

WHAT ARE COMMISSIONED ITEMS?

A collection of popular and proven products from all over the world. They have been singled out due to their popularity, quality, durability, ship-ability and ease of production.

---------------

PAYMENT

After we receive a signed and accepted formal quotation, a 60% NON-TRANSFERABLE, NON-REFUNDABLE down payment is required to begin the process. THERE CANNOT BE ANY DEVIATIONS OR CHANGES ONCE PRODUCTION OF THE SPECIFIC COMMISSIONED ITEM HAS BEGUN. A DOWN PAYMENT CANNOT BE TRANSFERRED FROM ONE PRODUCT TO ANOTHER OR RETURNED BECAUSE OF THE COMPLEXITY OF WORKING WITH PROCURING AND PRODUCING MATERIALS, WORKING WITH MANY DIFFERENT FACTORIES AND INTERNATIONAL LOGISTICS.

COMMON INQUIRIES

Dimensions
Many items are produced with molds which limit changes with dimensions. Although, we can sometimes adapt a mold to meet specific requirements.

Color/ Finish
Most items can be adapted to many colors and finishes.

Quantity
Because of world transportation logistics, remote factories and complexity of design, there is a specific minimum order quantity. Smaller items require a master pack minimum order quantity.

Production Time
Complexity of design, quantity to produce, diverse world holidays, world transportation logistics, etc. all play a part with how much time is needed to complete production and have the products delivered into the US.

Table Surfaces
Many times, glass or stone can be exchanged which can affect the final cost per piece. We also have the capability to adapt other surfaces in our Chicago Studio after we have received the base.

Indoor/ Outdoor
Many items can be adapted for outdoor use for a limited time. Certain metals, after treatment for outdoors, can still oxidize with time, extreme weather and salty air/ water.

Shipping
All commissioned items are shipped by truck, on pallets and to one location.
