Custom orders/custom manufacturing
Custom orders can be anything from a name engraved on a pen to a brand new product.
Engraving is offered on every product, both for text and logos. We offer free logo engraving on orders over 50 products.
We have custom manufacturing partners, and are always open to more if the shoe fits. Our capabilities include laser engraving/cutting, drilling, turning/lathe work, sanding/finishing, and dropshipping.
Yes, we harvest trees to make our products. We've chosen to make many of our products from wood veneer (thin strips of wood) to cut down on useage. We plant a tree for every product sold, and by our estimate, each tree can produce, on average, over 2,000 of our products. Woods like Cedar and Maple are also fast growing trees, which are replanted in the same farms from where they were harvested.
Our packaging is compostable, and uses natrual dyes (when applicable). That means that the mailer that your product arrives in can go straight into the compost or recycling.
Our goal is to leave the planet better than we found it.
What does "handmade" mean?
Our products are handmade in Westminster, MD. All woodworking is done in house, and all metalwork is completed through our partners. This allows us to focus on what we're good at: wood turning, sanding, sawing, and finishing.
Every AWC product uses real wood that was cut and sanded in our wood shop. We use a natural Danish Oil finish to ensure that the natual feel and scent of the wood (especially Cedar!) comes through.
What type of refills do your pens take?
Our pens take either cross or parker brand refills. You can get these refills on our site, on Amazon, or at any office supply store.
