Greetings all!  This page is to provide information on the lamellar plates I am selling.  They are for fighting in the SCA, as well as other organizations.

How to order

Email me with what you are looking for.  Please include style of plate, quantity, and the material.  Please include if you are in the US, Canada, or other.  Once I have all the information, I'll send an invoice with a secure link to enter credit card information.  If you have any questions, please ask!

I respond to all emails that I receive.  If you don't receive a response within a week (in case I'm out of town) please resend your email stating that you never received a response.  Thanks!

Due to the wide variety and materials I offer on lamellar plates, I will be keeping very few in stock.  Instead, I will make your plates to order.  The turn around time right now is 3-4 weeks from the date payment is made.  Larger orders may require additional time.

Aluminum (0.063) - $.55
Stainless Steel (20g) - $.55
Spring stainless (20g full hard 301) - $.95

Spring stainless:   I have used up the last of the material from my last order of spring stainless.  If you are interested in lamellar plates from this material, email me.  I will be setting up a pre-order queue.  When there are enough pre-orders, I will order the material. 

I do accept credit cards for payments, but not through paypal.

Shipping anywhere in the US is $12.35 via USPS flat rate box with delivery confirmation.  This price was updated 1-31-2013.

All orders over 1000 plates will get bulk pricing. It will be $.05 off per plate. So 0.063 thick aluminum plates that are normally $.55 apiece will be $.50 when 1000 or more are ordered.  This applies to most materials.  Styles can be combined, so if you'd like 500 of two different styles, but the material is the same, then the bulk rate applies.  Bulk pricing does not apply to spring stainless.

I have no problems shipping internationally.  Using the USPS flat rate boxes, the cost to Canada and Mexico is $40.95 per box, and to all other countries for $59.95.  There is a 20 pound maximum for international shipments, so shipments heavier will be broken down into the appropriate number of boxes.  It is more cost effective this way rather than one large box.

I can only make it to the post office on Fridays or Saturdays.  

Variations on these plates will run the same price as long as nothing is radically changed. 

These are the plates that I currently have drawn and modeled.  If you'd like changes or have a specific design not listed, just email me a scale drawing or a drawing with all dimensions (hole size, hole location, etc...) and I'll process it. 

If you need an estimate of the number of plates needed, please include the amount of square feet that you're trying to cover.
