Coat of Arms/Family Crests
Welcome. If you have purchased from us before the site will look unfamiliar – we have updated it with a new design and an improved shopping cart. For newcomers we are a UK based shop selling gifts bearing your family coat of arms, also known as family crests since 1996. Please check out our prices: there are many shops selling identical prints and we believe we offer the best prices. If you are looking to buy a mug decorated with your arms we glaze the image onto the china whereas others print; glazing is permanent, printing is not.
Fully Authentic – Our researchers have been building a database of coats of arms (also known as ‘family crests’) since the early 1970s so you can be confident that the product you buy is genuine. There is a list of some of the books and documents used in this research at our Bibliographies page.
Delivery – We despatch prints by First Class post within one working day of receipt of your order. Bone china items are made to order and need to spend about 14 hours in the kiln. We despatch these in 2-3 working days.
Bone China – We glaze the image onto mugs, tankards, and plates. The process is the same as that used to decorate your tableware at home and the result is permanent. You will find other sites that print on mugs using a process called sublimation. The images on printed mugs are not permanent and will fade quite quickly.
Delivery: Prints are dispatched either the same day that your order is received or the next working day. Bone china items need to dry then spend about 15 hours being glazed in the kiln. Orders will be dispatched in 2-3 working days. Please note that the larger framed prints are sent only to UK addresses as the cost of carriage abroad is prohibitive.
