Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

What is your normal turn around time?

- Normally my turn around time is about 2 weeks. This is always subject to changed based on my current work load. Rush orders are available at an additional cost. Please contact me.

Will I receive a proof?

- A proof is emailed to the email given at checkout on all orders over $50. If no response is received from proof in 3 days, I will try to reach out again. After 5 days with no answer, work will continue.

Do you ship internationally?

- At this time, I only ship inside the United States. However I do offer shipping to APO/FPO.

 

Are pieces waterproofed? 

- All wooden pieces out of AMB Handmades are coated with multiple layers of Polycrylic. This makes them water resistant.

My dog chewed up one of my signs from you.. are your products non-toxic?

- While I always try to use the most environmentally friendly products, Polycrylic is not safe to ingest. 

I placed my order but have not received a confirmation email, what now?

- Please feel free to contact me. My contact info is avaliable in my About section. 

Does my stove need to be fully cooled before I place my stove cover on top?

- YES! Never put your custom stove cover onto your stove top unless it is completely cold to the touch. While I do coat them with protectant, they are NOT fire proof, this is still very dangerous.

I noticed you only have certain colors and sizes. Do you offer custom requests?

- Of course! While I only keep the most popular colors and sizes in stock, I can usually accommodate your request. There may be an additional charge for custom color blending or speciality wood. Please click the "Custom Orders" tab at the top of the page.

Do you provide beverages or snacks at kids parties?

- I do not. This is up to the host or hostess of the party.

"I absolutely love my stove top/cover! Not only is it gorgeous but the customer service was amazing. I sent her a picture of my table and she matched the color very nicely. I asked her to change a little of the design for me after she had already placed the vinyl on top of the wood and she was very understanding! I would recommend her to anyone!"

Make Your Own Sign
A Make Your Own Sign party is a bit more advanced than a No Mess Paint Party. You will receive all the materials to create a sign similar to one you would receive from my workshop. You will be supplied with blank wood, paints, stains and stencils. You will paint your background and border, and then place your own stencil onto the wood. Now it is time to begin painting and decorating however you please. Then you will carefully remove any pieces of stencils with provided tools.
The outcome will be very similar to signs found in my shop but all handmade by YOU!!
-

Not Mess Paint Party
A No Mess Paint Party will be a bit different than a MYOS party. It is more kid friendly and easily cleaned up. Children as young as 6 months can enjoy sensory play while creating a piece of art for all to enjoy. The children will receive an 8x10 canvas with a stencil (design chosen when party is booked) already applied. Once paint drops are placed onto the canvas you will place it inside a large plastic bag. At this point your child can begin pushing around the paint inside the bag until an almost "tie dye" effect begins to happen. Once done they will remove the stencil and their design will appear in white! 
Paint brushes are supplied for older kids who will to actually paint with a brush. No Mess Paint Parties are also great for anyone with limited hand mobility, or other disabilities.
Children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at all times.

Now down to business........ 
AMB Handmades was born in 2017. As many of you know I am a military spouse. My husband, Ryan, has gone away on missions many times with the United States Air Force. During one of these missions, I told him I was bored and I wanted to purchase a dye-cut machine. He said “go for it babe!” And the first ever version or this business was born.
At first I began cutting simple vinyl decals and small simple signs. Then as my interest grew, so did my knowledge and my talent. 
When I became pregnant with my son, Greysen, I was so inspired. I began thinking so much more creatively and all I ever wanted to do was craft and draw -- CREATE.
I purchased a desk, a heat press, and some more equipment. Within days "AMB Creations" was up and running. Out of my small little military home in Okinawa Japan, I began pushing out order after order and perfecting my items. 
In late 2019, I began hosting small paint parties for my son and his friends with a local play group. I saw how much fun these were and Local Parties was launched!!! 
Winter of 2019, the name was changed to AMB Handmades, as you see it now. This name change was to showcase that every item ordered from this small business is completely designed and crafted right from my own desk. It is truly all HANDMADE. My goal with this business is to capture the image that is in your head and bring that idea to life. I want to make timeless, meaningful and beautiful pieces that you can showcase for years to come and be truly happy with. I wish to spark joy through my methods of art and creation.
We took a short hiatus to work on the website in February 2020, and for our second Permanent Change of Station, to Mountain Home Idaho where we currently live and operate; and in late July 2020... the website LAUNCHED!!! 
AMB Handmades is now fully operational based in Mountain Home, Idaho and the surrounding areas. I am so happy you are here.
