Custom Made For YouA Bespoke Exeperience
Designed with you, our custom commissions are at the heart of our business. We have designed luxury board games bespoke for our customers for over 65 years.
Pick Your Product
Choosing your product may seem like an easy choice but our backgammon alone has 5 sizes alone; when you then throw in the choice of acrylic or full leather stones it can feel overwhelming so our team are always on hand to help answer any questions you may have.
We don’t charge any additional fees to add your name in a times new roman font, or choose your colours from our stock range. Should you wish to customise beyond this, like a handwritten note for example we will provide a full quote.
Work With Our Designers
Creating a custom commission is a unique experience and our team want to ensure you are happy every step of the way. When you create a custom commission with Geoffrey Parker we know how much your product means to you which is why we will meet with you in a way that is convenient to you. Whether that’s via Zoom, skype or in person. We always offer our customers the opportunity to visit our workshops in the heart of the Essex countryside where you can meet the team, and see the craftsmen and women working on either your product or items similar to yours.
We don’t charge a fee for designing your product; we will however take a deposit against the item you are creating to secure your slot in production and for any artwork origination.
Technical Drawings & Sign Off
Following the design meeting our team will produce technical drawings should they be required, or a simple mock-up visual for you to help with the decision-making process. We will also ensure we send you leather or material samples to ensure you are happy with the choices you have made.
You will be given the opportunity to revise any decisions prior to signing off. Once you are happy our team will get to work ordering any specialist materials like exotic leathers, or vegan leathers or commissioning the custom casting of playing pieces as required.
Our Team Will Start Work
Your deposit will have secured a slot in production, when sign off is given this production slot will be confirmed and we will give you an estimated delivery date. This can depend on many factors from sourcing exotic alligator (which is caught to order in the USA) to the volume of projects we’re working on as christmas can be a busy time for us.
A board game will usually have an 8-12 week lead time, while a table can take up to 3 months to craft.
We know how hard the wait may be to receive your Geoffrey Parker; but we have always had the belief that good things come to those who wait.
Our team will quality-check your finished item before it is approved to be shipped to you. It will be wrapped up in bubble wrap to protect it during transit and placed into one of our luxurious handmade custom boxes. This will then be placed into a larger box filled with recycled flow packaging for protection and shipped directly to you on a fast-tracked 24-hour shipment.
Finally, full payment is required prior to shipping. We can provide photos of your finished product if required. A signature is required on delivery.
At Geoffrey Parker we believe almost anything is possible; from casting family members in sterling silver to handwritten notes to encapsulate the message of a loved one forever.
