Price increase on Tucker’s decorative stamping

Posted by Rob Longenecker on March 3rd, 2009

Tucker has been spending more time on stamping a holster or belt, than cutting and sewing it. It’s clear that he hasn’t been charging nearly enough for his time and it’s also very hard on his hands and arms.

It’s painstaking, exacting work and the result of 30 years of practice. No apprentice can duplicate it.

On orders accepted on March 15th, 2009 and beyond, Tucker’s price for stamping will more than double. Tucker will continue to do all stamping personally.

Full stamp will be $90 on a holster or belt and Border stamp on a holster will be $45. On a complete rig with stamping, the average increase will be approximately $100.

There is some good news. Unstamped orders will get out the door in less than half the time than they have been. Stamped orders will remain around 8-9 months unless the price increase reduces the number of stamped orders (which is expected).

If you are considering placing an order before March 15, to beat the price increase, we will accept a 20% down payment at time of order with balance to be paid upon completion and shipment. (Be sure to use a credit card because Paypal will take the total price immediately.)

    Rob, you are killing me. Fortunately, I can afford border stamping and may get it faster now.

    Bobby……

  2. Rob Longenecker Says:

    Yeah, I know. I’ve gotten a lot of emails asking me to tell Tucker “it’s about time.” We shall see.
    Thanks for you post. I appreciate it.

    I’d have to agree with the “it’s about time” crowd. As a leather stamper/carver myself, I can relate to the pains. I spent the better part of twenty years making custom ropes for bull riders around the country. Making ropes, and stamping leather wreak havoc on one’s hands and arms. If either can be done without cramping and pain, I’ve yet to discover how.

    Rob, if you would, let Tucker know that soaking the hands in hot water has always helped me out. And, it has no effect on one’s beer temperature if executed correctly.
