Over the last 4 decades, we have achieved much success in our dying and color processes. We try to send dye schedules out well in advance.
Many colors including Amber, require 80+ lbs. to complete. Other colors we can complete with as little as 15 lbs. This is due to the complex nature of our formulas.
We do our best to maintain these schedules, but these time frames are often accelerated or delayed based on the large volumes that cutlery companies require.... sometimes with very little notice. For this reason, it is important that you be as prepared as possible and get your material in to be colored as soon as possible to insure your place in line for these schedules.
