The creation of a new decorative hardware design requires an active participation from the customer. The options include:
- Provide a sample of a design that needs to be tooled to match the actual sample.
- Provide a graphic design or sketch of the design that needs to be tooled.
- Provide a CAD drawing and 3D modeling of the design that needs to be tooled.
Once received, Q Hardware will provide counter drawings back to the customer along with the tooling and piece cost.
Once project is approved, the tooling process will be begin. We require 50% of the tooling cost to be paid prior to tooling with the balance due upon sample approval (unless otherwise agreed upon).
If assistance is needed to patent the design, Quintessenza Hardware can provide assistance to our customers in completing this process.
