Anvil Designs is a green business! We salvage & up-cycle most of the materials that go into our designs. Handcrafted in California at my plein air studio in the Cleveland National Forest, outside historic San Juan Capistrano USA ~
Due to how our materials are sourced, they may show some wear & have patina. We think this adds to the rustic charm of our designs.
Hand stamping & patina varies and each piece is unique.

We are smoke free ~ We do have pets.


Paypal, credit cards, etsy gift cards (see above)

Orders within California will pay sales tax.


US Shipping:
We ship First Class with tracking. Some items are listed with Priority Flat Rate shipping because we feel these items aren't safe to ship in a bubble mailer.
We always shop USPS and UPS for our welded items to get the best price. We refund over payment on shipping if it exceeds $1.00.

International Shipping:
We ship First Class International or Priority International depending on the size & weight of the item/s. International customers may incur additional fees or taxes imposed by the customs department for the destination country. These fees are solely the responsibility of the purchaser/customer not Anvil Designs.

All Shipping:
We will get your package to the post office when we say we will. Unless we have prearranged and upgraded your package to Priority Mail Express, shipping times are estimated, not guaranteed. Even with PME the guarantee is money back if not delivered on time, not actual on time delivery. If the post office cant guarantee it neither can we :(

Please contact us via convo before purchasing if you have any questions about shipping and especially if you need something by a certain date to make sure we can accommodate your needs. We do not ship daily but we do ship 2 - 3 days per week due to our remote location.

We combine shipping for multiple purchases made in the same day or consecutive days if the first item hasn't shipped.

We are willing to ship to most countries ~ Please convo for a quote if your country is shown.


We want you to be happy with your purchase. We accept returns and will refund once the item has been returned to us in the condition it was sent.
Please contact us if you wish to return something within 7 days of receipt. After 2 weeks, all sales are final. We cannot offer refunds on personalized items & certain custom orders.

If an item arrives damaged in transit please take pictures of the box or mailer, the packing material and the item and send to us right away so we can file a claim with the post office asap. The post office requires proof of damage so we really need those photographs. Please do not discard any of those items until the claim has been settled.

No refunds on return shipping.
Please read the full item description & ask questions before buying.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can you stamp something on both sides of a bullet?

The stamping process displaces the metal & creates a slight reverse image on the back. The stamped side looks smooth, the back looks bumpy. Generally, stamping both sides makes both bumpy & can obliterate the words on each side. It's a hot mess. Occasionally, I can stamp something small, such as a heart or 3-4 characters or a date on the back near the crimp line. It depends on the caliber / size of the bullet. If it can be done, an extra charge may be quoted as pricing is based on design, layout, difficulty and the number of characters stamped.

Can I send you my own bullet or silverware?

Yes! Convo me to discuss your needs. Send a picture of the item next to a coin or common Bic pen so I can determine how much room we have to stamp.

Care instructions

How do I polish my silver?
We use and recommend Cape Cod Metal Polishing Cloths. They can be used for silver, brass & copper. These cloths are soft and smell like vanilla. Please follow directions on the package. Made in the USA ~
