Shipping Notice

I am the only person working on texture plates - which are all handmade - as well as maintaining the website, shipping and all other management duties, so please kindly allow 2-4 weeks for shipping. Shipping time depends on material arrival as well as how soon during a sale your plates are preordered as I make them in the order they're received.

Thank you all so much for supporting my small family-owned, veteran made business!

Some new policies are taking place to help streamline my workflow.

* NO EXCHANGES: If you double order or for some reason want another design, OTS will no longer exchange your plates for you. If you have an account with us you can easily check to see which ones you have already ordered in the past. There are also sites on Facebook dedicated to destashing your tools should you choose to offload any.

*NO SPECIAL REQUESTS DURING SALES: Please understand that while I appreciate so many of you loving our designs, what we have listed for our monthly sales is what we've got. If it isn't offered, I cannot go out of my way to get it to you until it recycles back into another sale.

*NO RUSH ORDERS: All of my plates are made to order and ship in the order they are received. This is done on a first come, first serve basis and I can no longer accommodate rush requests as it isn't fair to everyone who had ordered before yours was placed.

We certainly appreciate your business as well as your patience while you wait for your order to ship - it's a one-woman show here at Oregon Trail Silver and I'm doing the absolute best I can to make sure you all receive quality tools you and your clients will love!

Shear sales are temporarily suspended!

Since we are getting closer to achieving our goal of making a big move, shear sales are temporarily suspended. This will NOT effect our texture plate operation! We apologize for any inconvenience and will let you all know when we are set up for producing shears again!
