COMMISSIONING EXISTING WORK
Placing orders from GlessBoards' existing collection can be done at anytime. Commissioned items can be customized in wood species, textiles or dimensions varying from what is pictured in the collection. Pricing can be influenced by materials chosen, specs or quantities.
Lead times vary, given the nature of the work and the time required to make each piece. It is not uncommon for the shop to be booked three or more months in advance. Work is booked into our shop schedule based on a deposit.
COMMISSIONING A NEW DESIGN
The new design process begins with you and your space. Once you have an idea of what you are looking for contact GlessBoards either through email or telephone. We can discuss the scope of your project and identify requirements before beginning the design phase. Typically, a non-refundable $300 design fee is requested in order to start the design phase. We’ll then produce two dimensional design drawings for review. When a design is settled on, the design fee is subtracted from the initial deposit on the work. Sometimes these drawings need further revisions and can often times evolve into 3D models and prototypes, this is particularly true for seating.
PRICING AND PAYMENT
Once the design of the piece, timeline and budget are agreed upon a 50% deposit is required before proceeding. The remaining 50% is paid upon completion of the work, prior to delivery or shipment. We, whenever possible, meet with the client in person and deliver the work ourselves. For greater distances and international orders much of the communication happens online or over the telephone. Wood samples and final work is crated and shipped at the clients cost when applicable.
