Sam is back from teaching, working in the shop and playing on the river.
One of the most common requests I have is to add an inscription to a net. I continue to offer that as a service. I have found the best place to add an inscription is to the inside of the net hoop. When added to the handle the net handle, the inscription seems to glare out and detracts from the overall appearance of your net.
There are three path ways to add an inscription. If you have your heart set a particular available net; I can offer that service but there will be an up charge of $150 as the inscription is added underneath the finish. This means I must disassemble the net and apply another coat of finish to the net before restringing the net bag. There is a 2-3 month turn around for this service. This charge is not refundable.
There are two other options available at lower cost. I keep a small select of nets on hand (typically in the $300-$350 price range) that are ready for the last coat of finish. I can add an an inscription without additional cost to you. There is a 2-3 month turnaround for this service. You can email me, the number and description of a net on the website and I can send you photos of a net(s) that are available and hopefully similar.
Lastly, I offer the possibility of ordering a custom net. The inscription can be added to the net during the last stages of finishing with no additional charge to you. I am glad to work with you via email or direct contact. (See the Custom Order page).
