How do you sponsor?
BrickForge prides itself in bringing the community dozens of accessories in an array of vibrant colors. Due to the sheer size of our inventory there will likely be parts in some colors that are intentionally skipped over, limited edition or even discontinued. Because we are committed to helping acolytes of the brick maintain creativity and consistency in their MOCs we offer a customer-driven sponsorship program.
All of our products are batched into smaller segments called sprues. A typical sprue will contain up to 12 products based on size and complexity. A 242 ton injection molding machine delivers molten ABS into the sprue causing all the products on that particular sprue to take shape. The pieces are then cooled, ejected, and separated for sorting. Typically all items on a sprue are run simultaneously; although there are shut-off gates to each piece. Thus, when considering sponsorship understand that all products* sharing the same sprue will be made as well.
Sponsorship consists of a $125 (min)** pre-order plus a $25 color-mixing fee ($45 for trans and other non-standard colors). You may pre-order any combination of items from that sprue as long as they add up to $125 (min)**. As a gesture of appreciation we will offer to add your name, forum ID or internet handle on each sponsored product so the community can applaud you personally. Sponsors will also be charged USPS Priority shipping (delivery confirmation included). Production takes between 3-6 weeks. Payments accepted via PayPal or Money Order.
