Nottingham Designer / Maker.

Need something designed ? Need something made?

I’m a small, home based, designer / maker Beeston, Nottingham. I use state of the art software and my British built CO2 CNC Laser machine (made in Northampton by CTR Lasers) to design & create beautiful Christian gifts, commercial promotional items, etched objects and images – made of wood, card, perspex (acrylic), leather, glass, slate, cork and stone. Because I’m a small company I’m happy to work with small to medium orders and of course, BESPOKE is my middle name. I personalise things just how you want! Need a prototype or small production run? – I’m your man

I’m not “precious” about the design work though – I’m happy to work with other people’s files and can accommodate all vectors types such as EPS, SVG, DXF, AI etc . If you don’t have the vector files don’t worry, I can rapidly convert most bitmap files such as JPG, PNG, TIFF etc into vectors.

Where else could you get a small batch, prototype or bespoke item, designed & made- or made to your design- in the UK East Midlands quickly, and at an affordable price?

Who are Handytech customers?

I design and make things for anyone and everyone – from individuals wanting bespoke personalised items such as slates etched with images of pets or unique wooden business cards, to businesses needing bespoke items in limited numbers. I’ve even produced bespoke and unique full set of 15 slate etched Stations of the cross for St Philips church in Chaddesden.

My customers include guitar makers, consultants, churches, resource centres, theatres, schools, shops, tutors, furniture makers, knitters, groups, pubs, restaurants, cafes, football clubs and industrial manufacturers.

What do I make? Intricate and beautiful wooden crosses made only of the words of the Lord’s Prayer (all common versions); 23rd Psalm and other verses, thoughts, wishes and Prayers; bespoke company coasters (much better than a Christmas cards and your contact detail stays on their desk for ages – not binned by new year) – for the same reason bespoke coasters also make great promotional / exhibition gifts. “Round Tuits” (go on ask me – you know you want to…) Wooden Business Cards, Keyrings, Stencils, Signs, Slate pictures… Loads of stuff – take a look at the Gallery or my Facebook Page where there’s plenty of great things to look through. I have another Facebook page for Christian Items and gifts – and take a look at my ChristianCrafts website – you might find it very interesting…

How can you get your hands on Handytech stuff?

Well, originally my plans were to open a shop for regular items here on the site – after all we are an SSL secure site (checkout the locked padlock in the address bar).. but, setting up an e-commerce site from scratch is much less fun than designing real things and playing with the laser. Life’s too short… More than happy to chat with you on the phone or by email or in person (in the East Midlands; COVID regs permitting) about what you would like, and how we could help you to get it.
