GENERAL ITEMS – 1 – 3 Weeks

KEEPSAKE ITEMS – 3 – 6 Weeks

CUSTOM DESIGNS – 6 – 8 Weeks

A ‘Custom Design‘ is considered anything that is not a standard product on our website with the exception of resin colour variations.

Lead time is determined from the date the order / payment / inserts have been received.

PLEASE NOTE:  We work with an extremely high volume of orders, and for Keepsake items, it usually takes 2 – 8 weeks from the time we receive your parcel until it is ready to be couriered back to you.  Each item is made entirely by hand and the many processes takes time.  Humid, cold and rainy weather has a major effect on curing resin, and will have an impact on lead times.  The ‘Current Lead Times’ is an indication only.

Please note that we do not ship on Fridays or public holidays.

Please get into contact with us for expidited orders.

We DO NOT ship internationally.

The simple answer is that we want to give you the most cost effective option to get your items to us, or delivered to you.

Sometimes companies will advertise ‘Free Delivery’, when in fact, the shipping fees is added into their product price.  This might not be a bad thing when you look at the price of a single item, but when you purchase multiple items, you are paying multiple hidden shipping costs.  We are MGD feel that this is unfair towards our clients, so we show you upfront what shipping is costing us (we don’t add mark up on shipping) and you.
