Who Are Ignition Studios?
We specialize in the design and production of handcrafted laser cut items. We do this by laser etching/cutting designs on a variety of different wood species for a variety of applications. We then stain and/or apply a durable polyurethane top coat to the final piece/assembly.
We utilize the following wood species for our production, sourced from local suppliers that adhere to sustainable wood policies: oak, cherry, poplar, cedar, birch (plywood), sassafras, and walnut. Wood is a natural material so not all products of similar design will be identical due to differences in grain patterns and coloration.
Wood species not available at this time are: mahogany, ebony, purple heart, teak or any other protected species.
What Are “Custom” Designs/Items?
Ignition Studios is always happy to utilize a pattern/logo/design that is provided by the customer. These customized goods are ideal for organizations or special events (businesses, taverns, restaurants, weddings, anniversaries etc). Ideas submitted with the sales inquiries form on the Contact Us page will be considered with respect to our Unacceptable Laser Etchings policy.

Returns and Exchanges
If you are not completely satisfied with your order you can request a return within 30 days of your delivery.
Once production has begun on a custom order it cannot be cancelled and the sale is final. If you want to cancel an order, please let us know right away. Orders can sometimes begin production the same day they are placed depending on backlog at the time.
How To Make A Return
We accept returns of non-custom orders for a refund or exchange of goods. If a custom order has a manufacturing defect, please let us know right away; you may be eligible for a replacement free of charge.
Follow these steps for a return:
Fill out the general inquiries form on the Contact US page to get an RMA number. Before a return can be processed it needs to be verified that the order was placed at firstname.lastname@example.org and was ordered within 30 days of the request. After 30 days all orders are final. Orders placed with a 3rd-party do not qualify for our return policy as we cannot guarantee the quality or condition of the goods.
Repackage your return and include the RMA #. Use original packing or other suitable packaging to protect the product and include a piece of paper within the package that has your name, order #, and RMA #.
Ship the package back to us. A return shipping address will be included with your RMA authorization form.
Customers do need to cover the shipping costs back to Ignition Studios. We will refund you 100% of your order and never charge a restocking fee.
Damaged or Incorrect Order
In the case that your shipment was damaged or just plain wrong we will pay for shipping back to us. We do need to be notified within 7 days of delivery of the damaged or incorrect item.
