Red Beam Designs, who created some awesome looking terrain pieces in their time, are unfortunately having to close down.
Here’s the full statement…
It is with a great deal of sadness that I am writing this to let you all know that Red Beam Designs will be closing down. We will be fully open and continuing to take orders up until approximately 5pm on Friday, March 23rd, after that we will have a few more days to cut and dispatch all the remaining orders and then we will be shut down completely. Hopefully, this notice period will give you all plenty of time to place any outstanding orders you may have been considering, rather than us just suddenly closing one day without letting you all know.
The sadness of this announcement comes from the fact that in less than 18 months we have managed to create a thriving new business out of nothing. However, it has had its costs on us and continues to do so. Whilst Kirsty has always worked full time on RBD, I (Graham) have maintained a full-time job as well throughout this entire time.
The constant strain and pressure of working what has basically amounted to two full-time jobs have left me in a position where I just don’t feel I am physically or mentally capable of carrying on any further with RBD. I am also looking forward to finally being able to spend a more acceptable amount of time with Kirsty and our daughter Mia again, rather than working almost every single weekend and evening on designing new products and trying to grow the business.
Obviously, we owe all our customers a massive thanks for all your support. We have also both made a lot of new friends during this venture so there is definitely no regret from us as it has been a very interesting time with plenty of positives that have come out of it.
If anyone is interested in buying any of our designs, or the business itself, from us then we definitely will consider this so please feel free to contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are keeping one of our cutters so there is a slight possibility we may re-surface again in a much more limited capacity via something like Etsy or Ebay but we haven’t decided on this yet.
Thanks again to everyone
It’s very sad to hear as, like we said above, the terrain these guys were making was awesome indeed. It’s good to see that there is a chance we’ll still have them creating terrain via a smaller outlet, but if anyone does want to carry on bringing their designs to the tabletop then make sure to contact them on the email above!
Did you pick up any of the Red Beam range?
