Sole Trader Working From Home
We are a small family concern , husband and wife working from home with no desire to return to the hussle and bustle of working in town
Mainly manufacturing signet rings as I have for over 40 years, I am trying to avoide taking up to much of my time with phone calls and emails , dealing with the public I have to explain every last detail over and over again, often to no avail. This was so much easier face to face over a shop counter with stock and examples to hand. As I no longer have the £1,000 + weekly expense of my shop , I can sell cheaper direct via internet.
TRADE : For this reason my trade customers take priority over any retail orders , generally trade orders are dealt with on Monday Tuesday & Wednesday posted on Wednesday or Thursday to insure you have them for the weekend.
I have the ability to engrave on average 6 crests or coats of arms per week if they are one offs. Average bespoke seal /crest rings takes 5 to 8 hours
Repeat engravings of an identical crest or coat of arms are far quicker especially if done at the same time , one after the other into identical products (ie) matching signet rings or a pair of cufflinks , making the later very competitive in price.
All trade enqueries very welcome , but please note , I am used to working in preciuose metals only, although I can engrave into non preciouse materials like copper and brass my hourly rate stays the same , I am not trying to compete with China or India and am only interested in producing high quality engravings & products with a price to match.
