Are the deskorations really safe to use as coasters?

They are indeed - when we apply the 3 coats of EnduroVar finish we get into every nook and cranny.  We have even submerged completed pieces in product testing - of course the cork gets wet but since it's painted with fabric paints the color will not bleed - and the wood will not warp.

Can I get a deskoration or a plaque signed by a celebrity at a convention?

Absolutely!  Here at Century Artisans we've been lucky enough to get a few autographs - just don't touch for a minute or 2 after they sign it to let the marker dry!


I really like an item exactly as it is in the listing photos...will I get that one if I order it?

Only the pens will be exactly what's shown in listing photos - all other items will have wood grain differences.  They will be the same wood as in the photos, but due to the wonderful variability of Mother Nature, there will be subtle to dramatic grain differences.  Please do feel free to ask for a particular one in a photo but it may have sold already.
