How to place an order?

To place an order for your authentic dishes you should send their photographs (at first a close-up of each dish taken from above). It is better if the photo is taken with a ruler in the background.

Also, you should give us:

  • name of the dish (e.g. “Meat set “)
  • ingredients included in the dish (e.g. meat sausages, wings, pork barbecue, etc.)
  • size of the dish (height, diameter)

Within 1-2 days craftsmen will calculate the cost of work and I will send you a pro-forma invoice.

Craftsmen are likely to ask more questions about composition of the dish and they will also ask you to make a few extra photos of dishes. Craftsmen will start work immediately after 100% advance payment.

Interested in replicas of cheese and sausages

We do not manufacture replicas of cheese and sausages for the following reasons:

  • First of all, to manufacture replicas, our specialists take casts of products. Cheese and sausages vary in shape and size in different countries. It is impossible to purchase a product which would be identical to customer’s product. Customs control prohibits to pass packages with cheese and sausages across the border.
  • Manufacturers always put paper labels on cheese and sausages. We don’t put paper labels on our products, as we are not specialized in them.
  • Cheese and sausages are big. Their replicas would require more material than replicas of average meals for restaurant’s showcase. It increases charge for work significantly. It also makes replica heavy, which results in expensive shipping.
