Q: Where can I buy Winter Design products?
A: We only sell our products through our online store at winterdesign.co.
Q: Will there be extras?
A: If the project is a batch order, there is usually some overage for warranty. However, this is not guaranteed, and many times there will not be any extra cases left after a batch.
Q: Can I buy a prototype?
A: No, we keep all prototypes for research and development purposes.
Q: Can I commission a one-off with custom colorways?
A: 99% of the time, no. However, we may make exceptions if the request is from someone with significant publicity and a positive reputation.
Q: Can I have a review unit?
A: We reserve review units for creators with significant publicity and a positive reputation. Production is heavily constrained, and we cannot give review units to everyone who asks.
Q: Will [insert color you want] be available?
A: All available colors for a batch will be listed in the configurator for that batch.
Q: Are the estimated shipping dates guaranteed?
A: No, they are estimates. Timelines are subject to change.
Q: Will I pay taxes or duties for international imports?
A: Yes. We comply with international law by marking packages at full value. We will not artificially reduce values for customs. Our shipping quotes do not include VAT or processing fees. You are considered an individual importer for tax purposes.
Q: Can I change my order details such as accessories or panel type?
A: No, the order details are locked in as we start production based on the exact quantity of orders.
Q: Will the colors be identical to previous batches?
A: Anodization can vary due to dye mixtures, environmental conditions, object size, and material. These factors are too difficult to replicate, so colors will typically have slight variations between batches.
Q: Could you tell me what manufacturers and factories are used to make Winter Design products?
A: No, that is confidential information.
Q: I missed a limited edition preorder or group buy. Can you make an extra one for me?
