Start Creating a Custom Product!

How it Works?

We've created forms for our most popular custom products that will guide you through the process of creating a new custom item just for your store! We prefer that you place an order before submitting the form, but they are also a great place to start if you're looking to start a conversation about how we can help you create the perfect item for your store, organization, or event. 

Simply click on the links below for the product you're interested in. Once you've submitted it, we will match it to your order, and get in touch with any questions. If everything is ship-shape we will get working on it right away and we should have the custom art finished in about two weeks. Please let us know if you are in a rush and we can expedite the process. You will then have the opportunity to make any changes you'd like to the design. Once the art is approved we will begin production which will take another ten business days.


The whole process for new custom items takes about a month to complete from a completed form to a finished product. If you need items more quickly than that we suggest taking advantage of our complimentary easy name-drop items where we can add your name or logo to existing products. 


Magnets, Coasters, Clocks, Keepsake Boxes, Bookmarks, Ornaments, and Bag Tags. All based on the same custom art. Cost effective way to add a TON of different custom products to your store with only one art charge.

Our most popular custom product. Miniature three-dimensional scenes that depict iconic landscapes and landmarks. Packaged in retro matchbox style packaging.

Portland ME

Product Story:
Greater Portland Landmarks

Greater Portland Landmarks is a nonprofit preservatioon society with more than a dozen buildings in their care but when creating their Matchbox Miniature we decided to focus on one building that summed up Portland's rich maritime history - the Portland Observatory. Framed at the top of the piece by the city's distinctive hilly skyline, the Observatory overlooks a vingiete of Portland's historic waterfront. Now a best selling item in their gift store, manager Alessa Wylie says, "From the packaging to the product, they are just first class."

“From the packaging to the product, they are just first class."

We will work with you to create the perfect custom piece to fit your town or location.

For the smaller stores, we offer low minimums and low one-time art charges. Our flexible on-demand manufacturing allows us to accommodate larger stores just as well.

Product Story:
Schooner Olad

Plying the waters off Camden. Maine, the 57’ Schooner Olad is a relic of another age. Each summer lucky passengers sign on to spend a few days as crew. Business Manager Susie Cooke wanted to create a keepsake that would capture the essence of the ship. A bookmark? Small- to fit the parameters of minute storage aboard but powerful in its ability to deliver art and info on a single plane: Boat and specs on a 2” x 7” durable piece of miniature birch plywood stained to the same color as the hull. It’s a bookmark that will last for generations - just like the Schooner Olad itself.

Scotty Dog Stone Background Custom Ornament

Product Story:
Scottie Ornament

We love dogs so creating an ornament for the Scottie Club - the latest in a 12-year tradition - was a joy! Luckily, Prim, our energetic Jack Russell Terrier has a well-behaved friend, Seamus, at obedience class who’s a Scottie. While Prim is constantly in motion, Seamus is a more subdued character and that’s reflected in his pose on the full-color, substrate printed wooden ornament that’s garnered rave reviews from club members - ”I received the ornament today and it is so charming! I’m so pleased that you can find artists who make such wonderful things.”

“I’m so pleased that you can find artists who make such wonderful things.”

Product Story: Edaville

To expand on their success with a custom Matchbox Miniature, Edaville Railroad in South Carver, MA, approached us to create a product that would riff on that piece and appeal to kids. Using the Matchbox as a basis, we created a 4" x 5" mailable coloring postcard on thick cotton card stock suitable for crayon, paint or colored pencil. After coloring, pieces pop out to create a miniature three-dimensional diorama that serves as a reminder of a train ride around one of New England's most beloved living history museums.
