Plating: Sound Vs Feel

Monday, June 22nd, 2009

Many people swear that gold plating sounds darker than silver plating. I am not sure that this is true, but I do know that gold is a lot softer on the chops. Not only is it softer but it is a bit more smooth and so many people find this comforting.

Using Our PayPal Shopping Cart

Tuesday, June 9th, 2009

When we re-launched our site a few weeks ago, you undoubtedly noticed a new shopping cart. We decided a move away from our previous cart to PayPal would benefit both our customers and us. We’re saving money in server costs, payment gateways, etc., and our customers are still able to purchase our products using a completely safe and trusted shopping cart.

I wanted to mention that you don’t have to have a PayPal account in order to purchase from our site.

Use your credit card or bank account (where available). Continue

If you’d rather conduct your transaction over the phone, please call us at (262) 949-1924.
