Frequently Asked Questions


Can I add/remove something from my order?

Unfortunately once an order is placed items cannot be removed or added.

Can I cancel my order?

We completely get it, we change our minds too! While we wish could, once an order is placed, we are unable to alter or cancel it at this time.

Can I combine orders?

We do not merge orders but We can ship orders together if you let us know in advance (we do not look to see if there are multiple orders)

However, we do not issue shipping credits or refunds when we do ship orders together.

What are the discount terms?

You can read our full discount policy here

Restrictions may apply when using discounts and combining sales.

*Our discounts currently do not all stack, but some do.

You can combine up to 2 discounts. 

However, If our shop has items on sale that requires no code (you will see the price reflect that automatically) you can not stack a coupon code and free shipping with the sale.

You can not use (example) 10% off discount code on items already marked down with an automatic discount.

That would be 3 discounts. Our system does not honor that.

If at anytime our discount codes do not stack it will be because of limitations in our system or that specific coupon code does not allow it. 

Our system is set up to choose the best savings for you and applies it. So if items in your cart show 50% off and you add 2 codes, our system will chose the best discount option for you. 

Trying to use too many discounts or codes with cause an error in our system. Please do not try to exceed the limits of our shops system.

I had an item in my cart and it sold out before I could pay, why is that?

Our inventory is tracked on availability. Our carts do not HOLD items for you. It is a first come first served system.

Example: 2 people can have the same SINGLE item left in our inventory in their cart, however our system isn't holding 2 items, it doesn't track it that way. You can both have the item in your cart but once you check out the inventory automatically updates to reflect the item is now sold out. 

How do I get discounts?

We send out discounts and promitions to our email subscribers and occasionally to our text subscribers.

The best way to get access to discounts is to join our email list.

You can join the email list here

Shipping, Returns & Exchanges

We ship USPS and occasionally UPS. You’ll be asked to select a delivery method during checkout. Ground Advantage or Priority are the most common.

How long will it take to get my order?

Go to your account dashboard to check and manage your order. Here is a helpful guide

We strive to ship in 7-10 days. In some cases orders ship next day, that varies on what is ordered.

Typically orders ship in 7-14 days. During busy times it may be longer.

We understand you want your order sent asap. We fill orders as quickly as we can. We do not work 24/7. We fill orders M-F. Occasionally on the weekends.

But orders can take longer to ship out. We appreciate your patience.

In Feb 2023 we moved to our new warehouse and we are working to get our shipping time to under 2 weeks. However there are busy times where it may take longer. 

Sometimes when packing orders, we notice something broken, missing or incorrect and we cut a replacement. This takes time.

In rare instances, Orders may take up 4 weeks to fill. Our kits are cut and created in the order received.

During busy times there may be a delay, especially during holidays.

But you will get a shipping notification when your order has processed and shipped out. During busy times orders may require up to 4 weeks to fill. 

Once your order ships the Postal Service will update the tracking at that point. 

Note: Some items are cut to order. These are items that are not in our inventory room. We do not have a warehouse big enough to stock all our kits.

Thank you for your patience.

Free Shipping

Free shipping terms

Occasionally we will offer free shipping promotions and some items will ship free with no code such as our monthly boxes.

Free shipping promotion* is only offered to USA residents.

Free shipping isn’t actually free. We are offering this as a discount to our customers, however WE are paying the shipping fee. No postal service actually offers free shipping. 

*If your purchase qualifies for free shipping it will be reflected in your cart that your total was $125 before shipping.

You must spend $125 before shipping costs to qualify on a single order. We can not modify your orders or combine them.

We can not apply any discounts after your order has been placed. We can not edit orders.

NO, We do not reimburse you if you do not use the free shipping code. We also can not modify your order if you do not use the code. 

We will not cancel your order so you can start over. 

All our other shipping policies still apply. We are not responsible for lost or stolen packages.

*At this time there are some restrictions to combining multiple discounts. Our system will chose the discount that saves you the most and apply it. Even if you enter a code, our system chooses. HOWEVER, you can combine the free shipping discount with a coupon code. But you can not combine 2 discount codes, automatic discounts with free shipping code. 

Each order is given an order number, we can not combine orders. Because we fill orders in the order received your orders will not arrive in one box. We go by order numbers not customers. 

We can not issue credits if you do not use discount codes. 

What is the shipping policy?

Full Shipping Policy in detail is found on the Shipping Policy Page.

Once your order is placed, you will receive a confirmation email letting you know that our fulfillment team has received your order.

Q's About our Wood Craft Kits

Do the craft kits come with instructions or a tutorial?

I have started adding the tutorial replays to each product page in the media section.

I have also started uploading them to Youtube.

Otherwise, we provide a photo on our website showing the kit and the pieces. Not all kits have a tutorial. 

If you want to request a tutorial of a kit you purchased email Amber


I also created an information page to help you get started crafting with our kits

Previously the tutorials were organized in a facebook group we have stopped adding them there.

Who designs the kits?

Some of our kits I design myself.

Some of our kits are designs by other small business owners. I purchase the files and the license to commercially sell blanks.

Please do not copy, trace or try to recreate the designs.

That is not acceptable.

I have a laser and want to make your kits myself, can I do that?

No unfortunately you can not trace or copy the kit designs. Many of these I purchase and have a commercial license to use.

You will need to purchase your own file from the designers.

Other designs I make myself. You can not copy or trace or re-create the kits offered in my shop.

In the future if we offer svgs you will not have commercial rights to sell blanks.

I see other shops offering the same kits you do? Why are your prices different & how are you selling the same kits?

Other shops may have purchased the same file that I have. That isn't uncommon.

Each of our businesses operate differently and our costs and materials will be different.

There will be times where shops may offer the same kits, in different sizes, quantities, and different materials.

This is not uncommon.

The file creators sell their files to multiple business owners who purchase a license to offer blank kits and cut outs or finished products. 

Each shop/business has a different customer base and each of our businesses may have overlap in our customers.

We tailor our products around our customers and the market. I personally know and respect many crafters and shop owners and we support each other. 

I do not offer to price match. I set my prices based on the market and my business.

What are your wood cut outs made from?

Great question!

We use 1/8 in mdf. It is durable, paintable and a great material for wood cut outs.

We have used this material on our front door, exposed to the elements and have not had any issues.

We do recommend you seal the wood cut outs before using outdoors.

Are all kits stocked in inventory?

A lot of our wood cut outs are stocked in our inventory room.

Our warehouse can not accommodate all our kits to be stocked in a room at this time. For that reason, some of our kits are made / cut to order.

Please have patience when ordering.


Tutorials are done on Facebook live. Some are recorded.

Amber has all the tutorials on her facebook page in the videos tab.

We are adding the tutorials that Amber has done to the product pages of each kit that has been crafted.

If there is no video on the product page, reach out to us. We can add it or add to the list for Amber to craft.

Amber has also been adding the video replays to her youtube channel.

(at one point the replays were going to the facebook tutorial group, but due to some changes with facebook we are no longer adding them there)

please find the product that you purchased on the shop website, go to the media and photo section. we will add the replay of the tutorials there

Otherwise, not all kits have a tutorial. if you need support ask before leaving a review or making a complaint.

Thank you again for understanding and patience.

If you are interested in filming tutorials to share with the community please let me know.

Need Laser Cutting Services?

We work with several small businesses and cut their products and ship them to them.

We do offer wholesale pricing if you are interested in us cutting for you.
