Terms - Marie Gilbert Studio


Our company handcrafts all of our embroidered products within 7 – 10 business days. Most of our wood products will also take 7 – 10 business days, but the more complex ones (i.e. personalized ones) may take an additional 7 business days. Oftentimes, orders process faster than that but we can’t guarantee a faster processing time.

Made to Order vs. Pre-Made

Check a listing carefully to understand if a product is pre-made and ready to ship or if it is a made-to-order product which requires ordering before it’s handmade.

Both are handmade, but the pre-made is shipment ready while the made-to-order embroidered products take 7 – 10 business days to be created for you, and the wood products may take an additional 7 business days depending on the complexity.

Look for the following image if a product is ready for shipment immediately:


The product(s) you receive might vary slightly from the product picture due to the nature of your product(s) being 100% handmade to order, and also due to the variations in wood color from one piece to the next.

* Care instructions will be included with each product.

Your product(s) can be damaged if:
* Care instructions are not followed.
* Wood products are used outdoors (unless otherwise specified).
* They are treated roughly.
* They are left in bright sunlight which could fade the colors.

We use predominately Robison Anton embroidery thread for our embroidered designs.

The woods typically used, and that we have on hand are: oak, walnut, birch, purpleheart, cherry, bloodwood, padauk, and smaller pieces of more exotic woods. We use a clear satin lacquer finish which highlights the beauty of the natural woods.
