- If you would like to order a Spectra sundial and know which direction
it should face and where it is going to be located, simply fill
in the direction and location boxes further down this page and
click the buy button to enter our secure payment and ordering
process. When we get your order, we will contact you personally
via email to confirm your wishes before designing and making
your custom Spectra sundial. If you don't like to do credit card
transactions on the internet, you can download a Spectra
sundial order form, fill it out, and send us a check (drawn
on a US bank) in the mail. If you are giving the dial as a gift
and you are unsure of the location details, you can buy
a sundial gift certificate so your gift recipients can have
their new sundial made according to their wishes at a later date.
- If you don't have much time and need
the gift sooner than it can be personalized and custom made for
your recipient, you can either order a Spectra
sundial gift certificate and let them have the fun of participating
in the design process to have it made however
they would like it, or you can go ahead and order the dial yourself
to get it underway now and have it made with your chosen inscription and details.
If that is how you would like to proceed, write
to us directly and tell us your wishes after you place the
order and we will put your sundial gift in the production queue
and send you a special certificate via email that you can print
out immediately. The certificate shows a picture of the Spectra
and says that it is underway in our studio and will be arriving
soon...then you will have something to give them when you need
it, and they will have something to look forward to that will
arrive later when it is finished.
- The Spectra sundial currently retails
for $295.00 (US) and is available for delivery worldwide. International
currency conversion is conveniently handled during the ordering
process by PayPal. You can use your regular credit card to order
a Spectra sundial - you do not need to have a PayPal account.
Standard US shipping ($20.00) will be added during checkout.
Shipping charges on international orders will vary - if you order
a Spectra for international delivery, we will simply email you
a PayPal request for payment to cover any additional shipping
- Indicate below whether your new sundial
should face due W, SW, S, SE, or E. If you are not sure of the
direction of your chosen window, that's OK...just choose "special
direction" and we will figure it out for you during the
design process - you can find out how we do that further down
this page. Your Spectra sundial will be made for the shipping
address you provide during the secure payment process unless
you specify otherwise. At the end of the ordering process you
will be given an opportunity to request any additional options
you would like to include such as an inscription and date line.
Be sure to give us a shipping address, and feel free to email
us after you place your order to discuss personalizing your
- Whether or not you choose to add
inscription or date line, you will receive a proof drawing
of the proposed layout directly via email for your review and
approval prior to completion. We like to make personal contact
with each of our clients...after all, we are making something
very special for you. Why wouldn't we treat you special as well?
- If you need a non-standard direction
Spectra let us know - we can use satellite imagery to have a
look at your home and make the dial to match the direction of
your chosen window. If your home does not show up in Google Earth
and you need an accurate placement you will need to download
our Sundial Positioning Form - by
marking the position of a simple string line shadow on this form
at any exact time and date, you will easily be able to supply
us with all of the information we need to be able to make your
Spectra sundial for whatever special direction you may desire.
Mail or fax the form to us separately and we'll do the calculation
at no extra charge, but bear in mind that the time necessary
to perform this extra calculation will likely move the delivery
date back on the finished dial.
- Upon confirmation of your order we
will design and handcraft your new Spectra sundial specifically
for your location and for the direction you would like it to
face. We will normally ship your new one-of-a-kind, custom signature
sundial within 2-4 weeks on average, but during busy periods
in our studio it may take a little longer. Bear in mind that
the time it takes to individually handcraft our custom sundials
may vary during occasional high activity periods or when lots
of Spectra orders or gift certificate redemptions arrive all
- If you want to order a gift and the
special day is fast approaching let
us know - we try to reserve time in our production schedule
to accomodate rush orders and will do everything possible to
make sure you will have your gift in time for the special occasion.
When your new custom sundial is finished we will notify you when
it ships, and US customers will typically receive their new Spectra
sundial about 2-3 business days after that. Overseas international
shipping may take a week to 10 days, depending on how fast the
package clears customs upon entry to your country.
- Any import taxes or customs duty
levied by foreign destination countries are the responsibility
of the customer and may need to be paid at the time of delivery.
We have no way of predicting the current taxation policies and
rates for foreign countries, though many countries that have
trade agreements with the US do not tax imports from the United
