Special thanks to Jango Fett for the help with this and use of verbiage.
Process Information:
Payment Options and Process for Custom Builds
Once a Deposit/Retention Fee is paid (usually $100.00), a design will be made for you if you have not provided one.
Through phone conversations, IM, e-mail or Gemini Concepts Chat Room, the design will be tweaked to
your specifications, provided the design is realistic and will work with the electronics you have chosen.  Payments can be
made throughout the course of the build or in one lump sum.  Of course, a saber will not be shipped until
final payment (including shipping and insurance) has been paid. During the design process, ITEMIZED estimates
will be e-mailed to you. Please do not pay off the estimates since a Paypal request will be sent to you.  After payments
are made or if any changes have been made to the build, a new invoice will be sent to you for your records.
The new invoice will reflect any changes (i.e. additions or subtractions to the build, payments made, etc.).  During the
building process, please keep in mind that we may be waiting on parts and that we work on numerous sabers at
one time.  This may mean that a customer who ordered after you might get his/her saber first.

Several manufacturers produce remarkable kill keys. There time and dedication to this aspect of the hobby deserves recognition. Gemini Concepts will no longer create kill keys for custom sabers. Please contact one of the makers of kill keys or purchase one from TCSS. If one is required, and not provided, we will use the recharge connector for the battery pack in shipping.

*** Addendum to Service Log***

Powder coating services will be offered for Sabers we build.  We still have over 50 colors in stock.  We will no longer accept PC commissions as a "stand-alone" project.  It's very time consuming and can get expensive if the color requested is not in stock.  If you need assistance with a non-GeminiConcepts project, feel free to PM Master Jedye and he can refer you to a credited Sabersmith for a quote.
