If you have questions about assembly of a kit please email me at MiniEtchers@gmail.com, I am happy to help. If a part arrives broken, please allow me to send a replacement.
My Manufacturing Process
MiniEtcher kits are designed by either the founder, Shellie, or me, Karen. They are then cut by a local laser cutter who specializes in miniatures. At the moment I out-source the printing of my 3D designs. I package and ship everything from my home office in Marietta, Georgia, USA.
I recently purchased an Anycubic Mono X resin 3D printer to be able to print in-house! By this winter I intend to purchase my own laser cutter and bring that part of the process in-house too. Bringing the manufacturing in-house allows me to control the costs and pass the savings on to you. I will also be able to create custom kits or new designs for you more quickly.
Every MiniEtcher kit comes with written instructions. As I release more kits to the new laser cutter, I am creating how-to videos for each one. They're on my Youtube Channel.
