Kustom Products Custom Engraved Cutting BoardKustom Products was born after Kate was struggling to find a Mother’s Day gift for her own mum after her Nana had passed. She found a family recipe that they had enjoyed so many times together and had it etched onto a wooden cutting board. She now has a team of designers but each design is still very much done by hand on wood, on stone, etc. All it takes is a photo or scan of the original and they take it from there.
