Want to know more? These are the FULL step by step production details and shipping details-
+ You place an order for a personalised chopping board via our website or Etsy shop on Monday – Thursday, before 7 pm WST;
+ All orders, received in the 24 hours up to 7 PM WST Monday to Thursday, are then emailed to our design team. Our design team work Monday – Friday, any orders placed Friday, over the weekend or on public holidays will be emailed their design mock-up on the next business day.
+ The following business day, between 8 am and 10 am WST, you will receive an email from firstname.lastname@example.org, including a design mockup that has been personalised with the details you have provided;
+ You then reply to this email, with your approval or with any updates that need to be changed. If changes are required, we are usually able to update and email a new design mockup within the hour**;
** Please note, we do not charge any extra fees for simple updates i.e. name or date changes, but we do charge an extra fee if you decide to completely change the design or want to change any of the fonts on the board.
Any personalisation changes will not be reflected on your final order completed emails [sent via the website, once your order has been shipped], we are unable to edit the personalisation details on the order invoice once payment is made, please be ensured that your order will be engraved/ produced as per your final mock-up approval regardless of what it states on your order completed email.
+ Once we have your approval, your order approval will be sent to the production team, who operate from 9 am – 1 pm WST, Monday – Thursday;
+ Your order if approved before 1 pm WST, Monday to Thursday, it will usually be engraved/ produced on the same day as approved. If approval is emailed after this time your order will be added to the next day’s production list;
+ Your order will then be prepared for freight collection the following business day. This may be sooner but is completely dependent on the volume of orders currently on hand. We do not offer an extra rush option, as usually every order is produced and shipped within 24 – 48 business hours from approval, and it not possible to further fast track this already speedy turnaround.
And the FULL packaging details and shipping timelines for our personalised chopping board range –
+ Your board will be plastic shrink wrapped and covered in double 20mm bubble wrap for protection during the freight, and then placed into its calico drawstring bag. Please note this occasionally makes the board very snug in the bag, but assists in protecting the board further, by minimising the movement in freight. The bubble wrap can be easily removed once it arrives at your home. Your parcel will be delivered in a grey satchel, using a lightweight plastic satchel enables us to keep the freight costs to a minimum.

The StarTrack Premium Express, is one of the fastest freight options from Perth, WA around Australia, usually delivering overnight [excluding the Northern Territory, Upper Regional Queensland] Once the parcel is collected from us, your order is then marked complete and you will then receive a completed order email from our website and freight software Starshipit, with all your tracking details***
