Bronzing Special Items Question
Lifetime Warranty: The electroplated finish applied to baby shoes and other items is warranted for the lifetime of the purchaser against cracking, chipping, peeling, flaking, and other surface imperfections caused by the technique or materials applied as part of or during the finishing process. The baby shoe or other item will be refinished without charge when presented to the dealer from whom purchase was made or to the company. This warranty does not cover damage or refinishing necessitatied by abuse, accident or exposure to moisture or corrosive substances. (please see full warranty declaration on the baby shoe bronzing full color brochure)
Baby Shoe Bronzing Process: The baby shoes are hardened and shaped. Then the shoe is electroplated with bronze (or pewter). The bronzed electroplated layer completely seals your baby shoe to preserve it for years to come. The finish is then polished and laquered to prevent tarnishing. The bronzed baby shoes are then mounted for a beautiful presentation of your keepsake. The bronzed baby shoes are inspected 5 times during the process to insure the highest level of quality and are then backed by our Lifetime Warranty. Different materials require different processing treatments to ensure quality electroplating. To obtain the quality of our products, the process is very labor intensive and almost impossible to automate.
Comparing Baby Shoe Bronzing Quality: You will find a wide range of prices for baby shoe bronzing. As you know, the largest reason for price differences is the quality of the product. You can read a blog post on this issue: Price vs. Value
Some things you may want to consider when chosing a baby shoe bronzing supplier for your baby shoe keepsakes are the following:
Antique Bronze vs. Bright Bronze: Antique Bronze has dark areas of shading that help to show the details of the shoe (creases, wrinkles, holes, scuffs). Bright Bronze has no shading. It is a lustrous mirror-like finish. Bright Bronze is best for shoes that have very, very smooth surfaces.
