DO YOU HAVE A
FISH MY SIZE? - Since there are thousands of repro's
available, the first thing I need to know is the size of the fish you
caught. Complete the Price Quote
Request Form and click on the submit button. Or send me
an e-mail with the length,
girth, weight, species and sex. I will answer via e-mail by the
next business day with a list of available repro's closest to the size you
requested and the cost of each. I will also include an estimated cost
for shipping to your location. Local customers may pick up (WI sales
tax will apply).
HOW REAL DO THEY LOOK? Fish vary in coloration from lake to lake and even with the same lake. If you provide a good color photo of your fish, I can get the coloration VERY close. I have built my business on attention to detail. If you have no photo, I will paint it as "typical" for the species unless you can provide me with some guidance. Many of the newer reproductions have flexible fins and are difficult to tell from the real thing. See for yourself. Check out the photos on the photo page
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?- Most reproductions are completed in 1 to 6 months. It depends on the time of year you place the order, current backlog and the company I obtain the repro from. Many companies manufacture only upon receiving order and keep no inventory. Some sizes may be custom orders and may take a little longer. Click here to check my completion schedule
HOW MUCH DOES
IT COST?- I have a minimum of
$100.00 for any reproduction. Most fiberglass and acrylic
resin repro's are $8.75 per inch. for
a 1 - sided wall mount. However, reproductions from one
Canadian supplier are $11.00 per inch. For an explanation,
see the General Information page.
EXTRA?- All replica's come ready to hang on
your wall. However, many people like the look the panel gives to a
mount, so I offer several types of background. All are priced per
inch of fish -
HOW MUCH TO SHIP IT TO ME? - Shipping costs are extra and are based on the size and weight of your package via UPS to your location. To insure they arrive in excellent shape, many finished reproductions must be packed in oversize boxes. Average shipping cost, including packing, is between $10 & $35.00 to most locations in the USA (excluding Alaska & Hawaii). Very large fish (marlins, sharks, etc.) may have to shipped by truck. You will be notified of all charges as early as possible.
HOW DO I PAY? I require an initial deposit for 50% of the total cost when you send in your order. I will accept a personal check, money order or cashier's check for the deposit. I accept Visa & Mastercard credit cards. However, since I do not have a secure order form, if you wish to charge your deposit or the balance on a completed mount, please call our toll free order # - 877-582-7005. Upon completion, you will be notified via e-mail or phone. You may have the mount shipped immediately by charging the balance, or you have 30 days to send a check, cashier's check or money order for the balance, including shipping. If a personal check is used for payment of the balance, the mount will not be shipped for 2 weeks after receipt of the payment.
WHAT IF I DON'T LIKE IT?- Like all my mounts, reproductions come with both my satisfaction guarantee and a 10 year guarantee on material and workmanship. If you take proper care of your mount and anything is wrong with your replica for 10 years (due to defects in material or workmanship), I will repair it free of charge. Broken fins or other physical damage, damage from smoke, heat, sun or excessive moisture are excluded. If you are not pleased with the reproduction you receive, carefully re-package and return it within 5 days, UNDAMAGED, for a full refund. Please include a letter or e-mail explaining your reason for returning it. Reproductions arriving properly boxed and undamaged will have a refund issued immediately. Please note, only the cost of the reproduction will be refunded - NOT THE SHIPPING.
OK, YOU HAVE THE
FISH I WANT AND I AM READY TO ORDER. WHAT NOW?
