A sundial gift certificate makes a perfect
wedding or anniversary gift!
- If you would like to order a Spectra sundial as a unique gift idea,
but you are short on time or are unsure of the details
such as where your recipient might like to place
it or which direction it should face -
or if you would just like to give them the experience of being
able to have a working custom sundial made especially for them
- you can purchase a Spectra sundial gift certificate that will
enable them to contact Jim Tallman directly
and work with him personally to have their
special sundial made according to their wishes. Many of the Spectra sundials that he makes are personalized
wedding or anniversary gifts - and an anniversary gift
certificate for a Spectra
sundial allows the couple to decide together
where to put the sundial in their home
and what personalized
details they might like to include, or
to wait until they find their dream home
before having their custom sundial made.
- When we receive your order we will
email the gift certificate directly to you as
a printable file. You will be able to print it immediately and
give it to your recipient however you wish, making the Spectra
sundial gift certificate a perfect last minute personalized wedding
or anniversary gift idea.
- The Spectra sundial gift certificate
currently costs $325.00 (USD) and is available
for delivery worldwide. The standard shipping charge of $20.00
(USD) for continental US delivery of your Spectra sundial will
be automatically added to your total charge amount during checkout,
and shipping charges on international orders will vary. If you
order a Spectra gift certificate and your recipient(s) will need
international delivery, let us know where it is going and we
will simply email you a PayPal request for payment to cover any
additional shipping charges.
- Fill in the information below to
give us the information we will use to register a special Spectra gift certificate for your recipient,
then click the buy button to begin the
secure ordering process. International currency conversion
is conveniently handled during the ordering process
by PayPal, and you can use your regular
credit card to order a Spectra sundial - you do not need to have
a PayPal account - just check out as a guest if you don't have
a PayPal account.
- Specific details on how we handle
gift certificate orders appear further down this page.
- When we receive your gift certificate order we will log the production
number of the future dial, number and date the certificate, and send it to you
directly via email so you can give your
gift personally. The gift certificate will direct your recipient
to a special Spectra web page which will
fill them in on the details and tell them what to do next.
- When the certificate holders contact
Jim to make their Spectra sundial, he will personally usher
them through the
sundial ordering process, carefully taking into
account any special conditions they may
have, and make their new Spectra sundial
specifically for their location and for the precise
direction they would like it to face.
They can customize their dial with a personalized
inscription and special date line, and after doing their
specific sundial calculations and designing their unique Spectra
layout, Jim will send them a proof drawing
of the proposed layout for
their review and approval prior to completion.
Jim likes to make personal contact with
each of his clients...after all, you have chosen to give them something very special.
The Spectra sundial has been in continual production
since 2002, and over those years Jim Tallman has personally handcrafted
and shipped his sundials to customers all over the world. Many
of them have written back to Jim to express their appreciation,
and you can read some of the things they had to say on the Spectra sundial comments page.
- When your recipient contacts Jim
to redeem their Spectra sundial gift certificate, he will put
their custom made sundial into the Spectra queue and personally
handcraft their new one-of-a-kind signature
Spectra sundial within 2-4 weeks on average, though during busy
times in his studio it may take a little longer.
We will notify them when it ships, and most will
typically receive their
new Spectra about 3 business days after
that. Bear in mind that the time it takes Jim to individually
handcraft his custom sundials may vary during occasional high activity periods
or when lots of Spectra orders or gift certificate
redemptions arrive all at once.
- 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 States.
- Any additional shipping charges for
international orders will be billed separately through
a PayPal request for payment sent directly to the customer. If
the initial PayPal request for foreign
shipment is not completed by the gift certificate purchaser,
the request for the additional international
shipping expense will be sent to whoever contacts us to redeem
the certificate and must be paid before
the job can commence.
