All about us:
CT Hobby, Inc. is a small crafting supplier based in Louisville, KY (USA) with the mission of glorifying God by serving others. Specifically, we make and offer blanks and other items for use by Crafters, and make every effort to offer quality products at the lowest prices. We shop both local and online crafting stores and visit crafting communities like Gatlinburg, TN and Brown County, IN to ensure our products are tracking the latest design trends and remain price competitive.
Most of our wood cutouts and engravings are laser-based (“working light sabers”) cutting and engraving of wood, acrylic and sublimatable hardboard cutouts for wreaths, door hangers, signs, wedding items or project embellishments. We have several lasers, including one of the largest crafting lasers in the USA. We also offer repair parts and training for Ruida-based lasers, and spend significant time and effort moderating several laser groups on Facebook.
We offer custom design services, such as nursery names, logos, engravings and stamps, and can work with proprietary arrangements, where your design is cut for you only–we don’t sell your cutout to anyone else. We do both custom, one-of-a-kind designs where you sit down with us at the big screen and together we come up with something you love, and wholesale quantities where you might need 50-500 pieces of the same thing within a week. We work closely with several template designers (such as Little Blessings and April Bee Creations), spending several hundred dollars per month on templates for new designs. Our web site sells downloadable templates from select designers (with their permission), at attractive costs compared to Etsy and other seller communities. If you’re a template designer, contact us for selling terms!
To the best of our knowledge, our blanks are always less expensive than “sale” prices of large and chain store crafting stores. We make every effort to keep prices lower than other internet-based crafting stores as well. And we usually succeed!
Thank you for considering CT Hobby as you plan your next crafting project! Now that you know about us, please contact us if you need something we don’t yet advertise–we may have it in stock, but much of our work is custom orders anyway!
