Before the magnetic boards go on sale I wanted to put together a list of some questions you might have with answers. That way you can get all your questions answered in one place and I don’t have to answer the same questions over and over and over again (hehehe).
How/when will you start selling?
I’m going to put up a blog post with pictures of all the boards I currently have done on Sunday June 3nd at 11am (Chicago time). Once the pictures are posted the sale will begin on a first come first serve basis. First person to claim a board is the one who will get it.
Will you ship the boards?
Unfortunately, I am not currently able to ship the boards. This first batch is my test run so I want to start off with getting one to everyone who wants one locally initially and see if that runs smoothly. Once all my local customers have been served I will possibly be opening an Etsy.com page to sell throughout the US. The boards are fairly large (see sizes below) so it’s going to cost an arm and a leg to ship. I’m also worried about them making it to the customer in one piece. With all that being said, if you still have any questions about having a board shipped to you, you can email me at email@example.com (serious inquires only please).
How can I pick up my board?
We will discuss board pick up once you claimed a board.
How long do I have to pick up my board?
Once a board has been claimed I will hold it for no more than 2 weeks. After the 2 weeks is up I will place all boards which have not been picked up back on sale.
What sizes do you have?
There will be two different sizes available:
– Small board (20 inches long by 9 inches wide)
– Large board (28 inches long by 12 inches wide)
How much do they cost?
Small boards are $35* and large boards $55*
*price includes: all board materials, magnets and labor
What do I get with my board?
– Small board: board, 25 small rare earth magnets, 5 large rare earth magnets and an instruction/information/idea sheet.
– Large board: board, 50 small rare earth magnets, 10 large rare earth magnets and an instruction/information/idea sheet.
What are rare earth magnets?
Rare earth magnets are a very strong type of magnet. The magnets you will receive with purchase have an approximate pull force of 1.6 pounds (small) and 2.4 pounds (large).
What kind of paper did you use for the background?
At the bottom of this post I included a picture with the 6 different background papers I used for this set of boards.
Do you take custom orders?
I’m not taking custom orders at the moment but it may be something that will happen in the future if this run goes smoothly.
I hope this Q & A was helpful. If you have any further questions please don’t hesitate to either leave a comment on this post or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Here are the papers I chose to use for the background. I stuck with mostly neutral choices, that way the boards can grow with you even as your style changes.
