Combined Shipping is automatically configured, so you will not be overcharged for ordering more than one item from my shop. If for some reason you are over-charged, I will refund any overage of $1.00 or more.

FIRST CLASS MAIL (U.S.) usually takes 5 to 7 business days from mailing. This is an estimate, and may be quicker or slower depending on where you live. Once mailed, I have no control over the item. Please make sure your correct shipping address is updated when you place an order.

Once mailed, I have no control over the item. Tracking is available for most countries. Please make sure your shipping address is correct when placing an order. International buyers are responsible for any customs charges, taxes and/or VAT imposed by their country. Please be aware of your country’s requirements.

Additional information


Can you carve my name?
Yes! At no extra cost, all of my personalized items can be custom made to say what you want, within that item's limitations. Each piece is individually carved to order. Just leave a note in checkout with what you want it to say.

Will my order be here on time?
I will generally carve and ship your items within 3 business days. USPS usually takes an additional 5-7 business days to arrive. International orders generally take 15-30 business days.

Do you have discounted/wholesale prices?
Yes! From January - October, I will discount orders of 5 or more of some of my items. Just send me a message with the woods desired and the list of what you'll need carved. I will send you a quote. If satisfactory, I will create a "Reserved" listing for you to purchase. However, due to Holiday demand, I do NOT generally offer discounts during the months of November and December. So, order early for the best holiday prices.

Do you carve other fonts?
Sorry, but no. I carve my names in a free-hand style that I have developed over the last 36 years with strength and readability in mind. They are durable. Other fonts do not hold up to the rigors of everyday keychain abuse.

Can I order a gift to be shipped to another address?
Sure! Just make sure you put the correct shipping address during checkout. So you can see what you have ordered, I always post a "Sneak Peek" when completed, on my DustyNewt Facebook page and on my website.

Are these keychains durable?
Yes. They are carved from solid hardwoods and will give years of service. The letter style I have developed minimizes "short grain" which weakens the piece. I guarantee satisfaction.
