Processing time

Everything on our website are made to order. Standard time for woodwork usually finishes in about 2 weeks. If you've received your order quicker then that means we've been lacking sleep and wanted you to have it earlier! If you need it sooner than standard time let us know, we might have rush options available for you! When ordering, please consider transit time and possible shipping delays from the carrier so you can make sure you get your order in time.
[Shipping] We ship nationwide from CA. Transit time can be 1-5 days. If you need it quicker, we can quote that for you!


Prices for our paddles range from $30 to $100+ depending on size and design. We're very comparable to even local Campus Greek store prices with their traditional paddles. When it comes to customizing your paddle, every customization has their own costs, so you can have a low cost custom paddle if you're on a budget. Our popular options for example would be 3ft $80 for the base cost, custom top piece starts at $25 and $20 for the middle Greek Letters cut out, for reference.✌🏻

Do your paddles come with paint?

To be specific, our services are just for the wood only.

Paint jobs are optional for customers. If you need it partially painted, or fully painted, we can direct you to Painters that can help you bring your paddle to life! Please note that this is a separate service to the "wood work" order that you may have placed from us. "Dang Paddles In Color" is a community of talented artists that work with us that can help you guys paint your paddles if needed.
The painters are local to us, so they'll pick up your order, and return to us when completed

Paint Job Disclaimer
Completion dates may vary with the complexity of your paint job and your painter's schedule. Message them early, they can be busier than we are. So please confirm all the details and necessary to them, as you have done with me. Dang Paddles is not responsible for damages, finish date completion, and or shipping delays after the wood work has finished. Dang Paddles recommends assembling and painting these projects youselves.

Shipping & Pick up

Upon ordering, all shipping orders have shipping costs calculated. We usually ship with USPS, or UPS depending on how quick they can get it to you. There are days when USPS can get a paddle from CA to NY in 2 days versus UPS probably 4-5 days, and we'll go with that for you because we always want you guys to have the quickest turn around rate possible.

Expedited shipping is available too, please just message us about that.
When ordering, please consider transit time for these orders as delays can happen from these shipping carriers. Shipping carriers may advertise 2-5 days, but they do not promise that.
