Thinking about having something GOLD Plated?
Here's how we work...
1. How to get a GOLD Plating estimate:
Just call us at 517-851-4788 or click here to send us an email. We will ask you a few questions about the characteristics of the item(s) you want to have GOLD Plated.
*Try to pre-measure the dimensions before calling and note the physical condition and description of the item(s). Emailing a picture would be very helpful. After receiving a description, we will calculate and give you a verbal or written quote prior to any work.
However, you don't have to contact us first. You can just send your item(s) and we'll call you with a quote before performing any work! If for some reason we can't perform the work, we will ship your item back at no cost to you! Be sure to include your name, telephone number or e-mail address, and the best time of the day to be contacted.
2. Condition of the item(s) to be plated:.
Item(s) need to be in fairly good condition as the pre-existing condition typically determines the quality and appearance of the finished product.
3. Sending your item(s) to Custom GOLD Plating:.
We suggest wrapping your item(s) individually in tissue paper, newspaper or bubble wrap and placing them in the center of a corrugated cardboard box using packing media (newspaper or Styrofoam peanuts) to cushion the item(s) from potential rough mail handling.
If you are uncertain about preparing the package yourself, you can take your item(s) to a retail shipper like "Mail Boxes, Etc." or "PostNet" to prepare and ship your box to us. Upon arrival we will assess the item and contact you with an exact FINAL GOLD Plating cost before the work is performed.
With your approval, Custom GOLD Plating will proceed to plate your item(s) with a beautiful 24 karat GOLD Finish.
- DISCLAIMER -
We try to restore and gold plate just about any metal item. However, there may be extreme oxidation and pitting on an item. If we determine that we would not be satisfied with the results, we will return the item at no cost to you.
4. Shipping item(s) from our facility back to you:
Your item(s) will be returned by UPS, FedEx or the U.S. Postal Service usually within one to two weeks. Ask about EXPRESS SERVICE for faster delivery.
5. Types of items we work with:
We can plate GOLD onto a wide variety of base metals such as: Stainless Steel (all alloys and grades), Steel and Iron, Brass and Copper, titanium, etc. Almost any other metal or alloy.
6. Items that we do NOT GOLD plate:
We DO NOT plate non-conductive items such as glass, plastic, wood, etc. they do not hold a current and will NOT plate. We Do NOT plate over real GOLD karat jewelry as these items are already gold. Gold jewelry can be polished, buffed and cleaned by a jeweler.
