FAQ’s


How do I get started?

If you already have a drawing of your project, the fastest way to get your project started is to submit a quote request online. The information that your sales rep will need to quote the project is:

  • Drawing / picture
  • Project dimensions
  • Material
  • Application
  • Are you picking up or are we shipping?
  • When do you need the project completed?

Why do we want to know the application?

Our goal is to get you the right plastic for your project. The first time. Our team just wants to make sure that there is not a more cost effective alternative or better suited material that could be considered.

What if I don’t have a drawing?

In most cases, our fabrication team can help you get your project on paper, but please note, we are not designers or engineers. For complex or highly technical projects, we might require that you get your project drawn by a professional. We evaluate on a project by project basis.

How do I receive a quote?

If you send a drawing and the above required info, our sales team will email you a quote for your project. If our sales team is putting your project on paper, they will send it to you for your approval. At his time, we will also give you an estimated completion date to make sure the time frame fits into your project constraints. Upon your approval, they will write up a quote and email you.

How long is my quote good for?

From the time we email you the quote, you have thirty days to get the project into production. After that time, we will re-quote the project, and we can’t guarantee that the lead time and/or price will not change.

I’ve approved the quote, now what?

You’re almost there! Your sales rep will contact you with a more accurate completion date and down payment information. Once, that is agreed upon, your project will be scheduled.

We try to make the process of ordering custom projects as easy and painless as possible. If you have questions regarding the process or about an upcoming project, please feel free to reach out to a member of our sales team. They are happy to answer any questions about material selection or getting your fabrication project started.
