We are now offering a couple of different personalisation options, please have a look through the information below and contact us should you have any further questions.

lettering Placement

There are two placement options – at either end of the strap so that you can see the lettering from the front of the bag whilst it’s sitting in front of you, this works very well with initials, Instagram or Ravelry names and alike. In this the letters will be stamped on your handle twice. The second option is to have the the lettering in the centre of the handle so that you can see the lettering when you are carrying the bag, this works very well for longer sayings and phrases. Phrases such as “Not all who wander are lost” would fit beautifully across the centre of a strap.


It is important when placing your order that you select the correct price for the amount of letters you would like from the drop down menu. There is a limited number of characters that can be fitted onto our hot foil press and as such it’s a very time consuming process to create long text, however it does look absolutely stunning! The pricing options on the website reflect just how much work goes into creating a unique item for you.


Please note that when completing your order we will use your spelling and punctuation exactly! This includes full stops between letters if you would like initials and alike.

Personalised items are non refundable unless there is a fault with the item.

Would you like your bolts sealed or un-sealed.

Sealed bolts –

This means that you bag is made up with a medium strength sealant, meaning that they are difficult to undo unless you use a pair of pliers and a flat head screwdriver. This is done so that the bolts don’t continuously work their way loose when the bag is carried.

Unsealed –

Unsealed bolts are done up when they leave the workshop with a pair of pliers and a screwdriver, the bolts can work their way loose so you will need to check them with each use. This does however mean the straps are easy to remove should you wish to change the colour of your handles regularly, or should you anticipate the bag will be receiving heavy wear and need regular washing.

If you are unsure I would recommend ordering them unsealed, you can always add a sealant at home at a later date. Hide & Hammer recommend a medium to light weight Loctite bolt sealant available for purchase through most local hardware shops.

If you do select unsealed I would recommend purchasing a spare set of bolts here should anything happen.
