What materials are used to make the Boards?
Sturdy 2 by 4’s are used for the frame and 5/8 inch sanded plywood for the top.
How do you paint the boards?
We cover all of the top screws with filler and then sand and prime the boards. We use exterior gloss paint for the color and add at least two coats.
How do you put logos on the boards?
We have a local company that makes us the vinyl cut decals based on the image file you provide. The decals are placed on top of the painted surface and then protected by a couple of coats of polycrylic.
How can I see what colors will be used for my boards?
Color is virtually limitless. We list the most popular colors used but we can accommodate special requests for custom sets.
How do you make the bags?
Bags are 6 inches by 6 inches and are double stitched using an upholstery thread. The duck cloth is 10 oz. and we fill the bags with either 1 lb of corn or plastic pellets based on your preference.
How can I see what colors will be used for my bags?
The image file for the bags gives the best approximation of color for the bags. If you don’t see the color you want email us and we can see what we can do to accommodate.
SHIPPING/LOCAL PICK-UP & TURNAROUND TIME
Do you offer Delivery or Local Pickup?
Both. Those of you that are fortunate enough to live in the Richmond, VA metro area and want to save money on shipping can pick up locally. We are located near the University of Richmond and will provide the exact address when the order is ready to be picked up. We also are able to ship anywhere in the domestic US via FedEx for those of you not local.
What’s your turnaround time?
It depends. We keep a limited supply of corn filled bags on hand in the most popular colors so they can be shipped or picked up locally the same day or the next day. Cornhole sets without wraps or logos are the quickest to make since we are not waiting for the vendor to make the decals or wraps. All cornhole sets are made to order so you should plan on lead time of 1-2 weeks but if you have extraordinary circumstances we may have alternative options available such as rentals or used tourneys sets (local only).
