Questions and Answers about Dalewood Designs GB

How long does it take for processing and Delivery?

Items are designed and made by us once the order has been placed and payment has been made. This involves manually designing where the text should go for the name(s) given and setting the design up according to the colour choices and then printing it on a 3D printer (which can take several hours per item). Orders are then checked, packaged up and posted (using Royal Mail). This is normally all done in 2-3 working days of receiving the order, although it can vary from 1-5 days depending on how busy we are and how big the order is (for example it can take longer at Christmas but still will always be dispatched within 5 days). The time it takes to arrive after that depends on the Royal Mail but is typically 1-3 working days for 1st class and 2-5 days for second class.

What countries do you deliver to?

Currently from this dalewooddesignsgb.co.uk site we only deliver to the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.
If you live outside of the United Kingdom and would like to place an order please contact us.

What plastic do you use – is it bad for the environment?

We use PLA filament (PolyLactic Acid) or PLA+ for all our items.
This is different to most thermoplastic polymers because it is made from renewable resources such as corn starch and sugarcane.
It is a biomass plastic which is also biodegradable and recyclable at certain facilities and is considered food safe.
So overall much better for the environment than most other plastics used in 3D printing or in packaging. We also use solar panels to help power our 3D printer (when British weather allows!) and send the orders out in boxes and padding that can all be recycled.

Can I have a Custom/ bespoke item?

All of our items are custom made – so you can get the right colour and text to personalise your items how you want!
If you like the look of an item but want it done a bit differently then just send us a message with details and we can see what we can do.
We are coming up with new designs and ideas all the time and welcome further suggestions, so if you cant quite find what you are looking for or have a new idea for something then let us know and we will see if we can design and make it for you!
