    HOW TO ORDER

    1. Select your choices of size and metal in the drop down menu. One sided engraving at this time.

    2. Upload your photo of what you want engraved! For best results, please sign or write with black ink on white paper. Smooth and inky pens are best! If in doubt, use a fine tip permanent pen. It can't be too thin or too thick. If you have a photo of a signature or drawing that is not black and white, you can upload it in colour and we will digitally take the signature!   You are free to send a photo for us to preview and look over at no cost! Contact us hereIf you need footprints or handprints, please see this listing here

    Remember the proportions need to fit into the bar shape so make sure your image isn’t too long or too tall! See the second photo for approximate proportions. If needed, save and print it out for size reference as a template. 

    PHOTO REQUIREMENTS:
    ♡  Minimum dimensions required is about 2000 pixels wide 
    ♡ White or light background with dark ink (no coloured paper or crayon)
    Image needs to be focused and not blurry
    NO COLLAGES
    No scans, it needs to be a photo as scans will overexpose your image. 
    If you are getting someone to draw a signature or drawing, please do not use a pencil.
    Please ensure there is nothing showing through on the other side of the paper. 

    If the requirements are not met, your order will be cancelled so that we can go over the design before it is finalized. If you’d like us to check your photo (at no cost!) before you submit your order, please feel free to ask me to double check! 

    TIP: If you are getting someone to write something for you, draw a bar and ask them to write inside of it. 

    Please note, engraving is a completely different look than hand stamping. The impression will not be as deep. Hand stamping involves bending/warping into the metal so that it makes impressions in the shapes of letters. Engraving is a light removal and a slight alteration in the texture of material to make out shapes and images. We reserve the right to rotate your images as needed on the disc, unless otherwise specified by you. Each engraving will look different based on each graphic or image submitted by each person to have engraved on the piece. Stamping is more visible than engraving, but engraving is smoother than stamping. 


    Unless you select engraving on the opposite side (if it is available), the back will not be perfect due to the nature of handmade. 

    *If needed, we may enhance/alter your image slightly to create the best engraving possible!



    ALIGNMENT: Alignment of customization is Left, Right or Centre of the bar.  If you select it to be Right, it will be stamped on the Right side of the bar, while looking at the bar when it is not being worn. The vantage point will be of you looking at the stamping on the bar when it is not worn, as if reading it. The vantage point will be like you are looking at a photo of the necklace. For petite bars, we suggest the center alignment.

    LENGTH: Standard length is 18 inches. For layering, we suggest 2 inches difference. Measurement of length is when the necklace is open, measured from end to end  and  includes the bar as part of the measurement.

    Unless you select engraving on the opposite side (if it is available), the back will not be perfect due to the nature of handmade. 

    Our chains have closed and soldered links to prevent breakage, however, in the case that it breaks, we do offer repair services. Please contact us if you have any questions.

    WHAT'S SO SPECIAL ABOUT OUR BAR NECKLACES? 



    Each Mint & Birch bar necklace is cut by hand in our studio. Each one starts out as a large sheet of extra thick, premium, high quality, 14 karat gold fill or solid sterling silver ethically sourced from reputable mills in North America and is stamped using hand tools. Each Mint & Birch piece is finished and polished in our studio using professional tools and materials. We promise that our necklaces are worth the price!

    Here at Mint & Birch, we only use ethically sourced, certified gold fill and solid sterling silver sourced from North American mills. Gold fill jewelry must contain a certain percentage of gold in order to be able to be legally called gold fill. This percentage is based on the weight of the piece. We use extra thick and heavy bars for your necklaces so that the weight and amount of real gold that you are getting per necklace is higher. We create our bars out of thicker than average sheets of high quality gold fill or sterling sheets sourced from North American mills. This ensures a luxurious, long lasting piece that you can treasure for years to come.

    We do NOT use gold plated materials, but instead, we use gold fill and solid sterling silver. Gold fill is much more superior to gold plated, and is made by bonding layers of real gold into a base core. Gold plated, which we do NOT use, is simply a microscopic dip into metallic colouring or gold alloy, which is often not real gold, or cannot be certified as real gold because gold plated items are usually sourced overseas. Often, gold plated materials simply refers to the metallic colour in which it has been dipped in, and as such,  especially without certification, could contain heavy toxic metals such as cadmium or lead. Mint & Birch does NOT sell gold plated items. Our pieces are free of cadmium, lead and nickel and do not contain any toxic metals. We use only gold fill or solid sterling silver, as we strive to source the best raw materials in the industry! Our gold fill raw materials are ethically sourced from mills within North America, and we only buy raw materials that can be certified as containing real 14 karat gold, safe to wear, free of toxic metals and ethically sourced

    Most importantly, the magic is the process in which we make our bars. We do not use a tumbler, in which many, many pieces can be polished and rough edges removed with little effort by putting multiple pendants into a rotating canister with small steel parts or abrasive compounds such as silicone carbide grit, or ceramic. Tumbling does not always remove all of the rough edges, but simply smoothes them down. Furthermore, tumbling can cause micro scratches and wear down the gold in gold filled pieces, leading to tarnish. We do NOT do this. Instead, we meticulously use hand tools to individually finish each bar. Using hand tools allows us to have a greater degree of control and precision over the piece to ensure that edges are beautifully smooth and that no damage occurs when finishing the piece into shiny necklaces! We have created a unique process of finishing your pieces without a tumbler, but with multiple hand tools, ensuring that quality is delivered. We believe in good old-fashioned hard work done with elbow and grease! Your bar necklace will not flake or tarnish as each one is treated with care individually and not mass manufactured.

    The combination of high quality materials we work hard to source, and our unique process of finishing the bars results in necklaces that will last for years to come. We strive to deliver the very best! Mint & Birch also works hard to create unique designs to hand stamp your necklaces with. In fact, some of our designs are even created specifically for us and cannot be found elsewhere!
