Wood Veneer Information
5.1  We pride ourselves on selling top quality veneers. As wood veneer is a natural product, it may have small natural blemishes or splits, these can be easily repaired. 
5.2  Coloured Veneer: We are the Distributor of SAS Dyed Coloured Wood Veneers, the best quality coloured veneers available in the world. They are made in an alcohol system where the dyes penetrate 100% of the wood fibre so are the same colour throughout the whole veneer, even if a small layer is sanded away.
5.3  CAUTION: Please be careful with coloured veneer dust created when sanding, especially the Red or Black Dyed Veneers, it needs to be brushed away completely before applying any type of polishing. We suggest sampling your polishing method with small pieces of your chosen veneer before doing so on a big project.
5.4  Original Marquetry Ltd will not be held responsible for any damage or mistakes caused to the veneer by the customer including, but not limited to Coloured Veneer Dust Transfers or any other damage due to not testing finishing methods.
5.5  Wood veneer is sent rolled up in a cylindrical package. It should be unpacked as soon as possible after delivery. Storing the veneer rolled up for a duration of time can cause the veneer to keep its rolled shape. We recommend unpacking the veneer as soon as possible and storing it flat, under a weight or press (if possible) and in a cool, dry place.
5.6  Please keep wood veneers away from direct sunlight, as it can cause bleaching and discoloration.
