Lead times: there is usually approximately a 4 - 6 week lead time before items are dispatched for delivery. This is because all of our products are handmade with utmost care and ceramics is a lengthy, involved process. This lead time includes any customisations you might request.
Customisations: we'll be in touch, via email, shortly after your order is placed to confirm what wording you would like on your plaque.
Introducing the Bailey Plaque - our raw, warm terracotta wall hanging that is customisable with your own wording. Perfect for nurseries, baby announcements, more grown-up home decor, this hand-carved plaque is an update on our Heirloom Plaque for the minimalist home.
