Resin & Be Thankful is a small business offering resin knick-knacks which incorporate upcycled waste materials like shredded plastics, paper packaging and many more! 🌈 My goal is to make a difference to help heal our environment and I'm starting with something small, by upcycling waste materials and making beautiful resin products with them!
Frequently Ask Questions
In this section, you'll find important information about all the handmade products that I produce for my business:
1) What are the products made of?
The main materials is epoxy resin which incapsulates waste materials. Waste materials can be anything from shredded PP plastic, paper packaging from deliveries, dry food products, flyers etc, scraps from 3D printers, tiles etc to dried up flowers and tea leaves. All materials used will be disclosed in the description section of the products in the website.
2) Where do you get your waste materials?
I source the shredded PP plastics from recycling centres or organisations that focus on reducing and upcycling plastic wastes like Precious Plastics. I also upcycle a lot of packaging materials that I personally purchase from grocery shops and also receive scraps from my talented friends who create products themselves like Gazete Azulejos and Scrap.mode.
3) Is everything handmade?
Yes. Everything, including concept, design, production and packaging is made by me in my little corner in my home in Glasgow.
4) Will everything be as perfect as industrial products?
No. I'm not a machine, everything is handmade by my little hands so please expect imperfections. There will most likely be tiny bubbles, a bit of scuff marks from the silicone moulds, some textures from the waste materials, but ultimately everything is handmade, one-of-a-kind and each product has unique characteristics!
5) Are you open for international shipping?
No. As a starting point, my products are only sold in the UK. Once I'm more confident with the postal services, I'll open in up to international buyers but for now, just locally unfortunately.
6) Are you open to sales or return or wholesale?
No to sales or return. Yes to wholesale! Please send me an email to enquire.
7) Are you open for commissions/custom orders?
Yes! Send me an email through the form below or DM me on my socials to enquire!
8) What postage do you offer?
I'll be using Royal Mail and will be offering the option of standard 1st class, standard 2nd class or Royal Mail Tracked 48 postage. I trust that Royal Mail will deliver on their services successfully, especially within the UK but will consider expanding my options when I open up to international shipping. With this in mind, I'd like to put a disclaimer that once the packages are with the post services, I will not hold any responsibility for any lost goods.
