Q: How long is the turnaround time for my item?
A: Typically turnaround time is four to six weeks, but it does change frequently due to the volume of orders and during the busy season. If it is more than 6 weeks LDD will call you.
Q: What does POR stand for?
A: It means Price On Request.
Q: Can anything be dipped?
A: Almost any hard surface can be dipped.
Q: If I have my car parts dipped, can I still wash and wax them like normal?
A: Yes, just remember to avoid harsh chemical cleaners and use soft rags.
Q: What kind of cleaning method do you recommend for animal skulls?
A: Beetles. Yes the bugs! While some people prefer to boil animals skulls, boiling can dry out the skull causing it to shrink and crack. It does not always remove all tissue and debris completely from the skull. If any residue remains, film may not adhere properly to the skull. Beetling also preserves the internal nose cavity while boiling can destroy this honeycomb look. Also, if you are sending upper and lower jaw of an animal, do not glue pieces together. They need to be dipped separately.
Q: Should I send you my whole fishing rod and reel?
A: No. Please disassemble your item and send only the parts that you want dipped. Please use the "description" field on the order form to specify what you want dipped, and if you want any specific sections of the item taped off.
Q: Is LDD licensed?
A: Liquid Dipped Designs has a Master Decorator License of automotive, marine, air craft, sporting goods, and housewares.
Q: What kind of paint is used for the base and clear coat and how does it wear?
A: Automotive grade paints are used for both base and clear coats. The wear of the paint will be just like your car. You may want to protect certain pieces for example dipped golf clubs. Put covers on them when they are in your golf bag. This keeps them from hitting each other avoiding unnecessary wear on tear.
Q: What products cannot be dipped?
A: Anything that is rubber, latex and stainless steel.
