Deano Designs Perth is a home based Registered Australian business, created, owned and operated by me.
I started this venture in January 2013. I have been involved in the pet industry in both wholesale and retail sectors for over twenty five years.
Yes of course, we also supply a GST compliant Tax Invoice with every order.
Deano Designs Perth has been a registered business in Western Australia since 2013, also registered for GST with the ATO.
All of the products you find here are made by me at my home in Perth, Western Australia.
I do not sell products that have been manufactured by other people, or purchased elsewhere.
I hand-make all my products myself, so I can ensure a quality product, each and every time.
WESTERN AUSTRALIA: .
City Barn Malaga (1904 Beach Road, Malaga, Western Australia) has a big range of small animal products.
They have a Deano Designs Perth rack located next to the main sales counter area. They stock several of the standard size Fleece Cage Liners, Soaker Pads, Cuddle Sacks, Sleepy Sacks, Hay Holder Bags, Lap Pads and more.
There is a page with a video and some text tips on How to place your order.
FIRSTLY REGISTER yourself as a customer. Enter your delivery address, password etc. The Australia Post plugin uses this information to calculate postage for your order.
NEXT – go to FABRIC CHOICES page to view our fabrics. Jot down selections, or take a photo of the page so you can refer to it while you order your products thru the website.
CHOOSE YOUR GOODIES: Start on the SHOP page. Scroll down, choose the CATEGORY – then choose the size, fabrics etc and load your cart..
CHECKOUT: Once you have all your items in the cart, you can pay with Paypal, use Paypal as a guest, Pay-in-4(Four payments) or a credit card.
POSTAGE: I use Australia Post (Parcel post) – Postage prices are calculated based on the total weight of your order and your postcode.
FREE GIFT OFFER: If your order totals $200 or more(without postage), when you view the cart page you will be prompted to make a choice of a FREE GIFT item! Please note – ALL gifts are in random fabric. One free gift per order.
If you require help, please visit the Contact Us page to contact me, I’m always more than happy to help wherever I can.
On the homepage menu, see ‘Fabric Choices‘, click it to browse the current stock of fabric choices.
Each fabric has a name underneath the image, either jot down the name, perhaps take a photo of the page so you can refer to it whilst placing your goodies into the cart.
On each product you load into the cart, the fabric options will drop down and you select them as instructed,.
Most products have 2 fabric choices, these can be the same or different.
Note: I am actively removing and adding fabrics I have, if I have run out of the fabric you wanted when it is time for me to cut your order out – I will contact you for another choice.
Sorry, I am not a contract dressmaker, thus do not sew your products from your own supplied fabrics.
My average production time is 10-14 working days of your payment being received.
This timeframe can of course vary. It’s really dictated by what the customers in front of you order. Orders with many items to cut out and make, take me longer to complete. Other times I get many small orders, so completion time can be quicker than I have mentioned.
Please Note: I work in a queue system: ie first order in is first order out.
This way, it’s fair for everyone – everyone gets processed in turn, no one pushes in or gets pushed back. There is no Express Lane.
I work this way so those that ask for particular fabrics first, get first option on the stock I have on hand.
I hand make all the items myself – so my products are made to a high standard each and every time.
From Feb 2022, I sew five full days per week. I am a mum, so do not sew for the business on weekends, that’s family time 🙂
SCHOOL HOLIDAYS: My sewing schedule changes during the school holidays as my son is at home. I have to share my time between sewing, and being ‘mum’, my other job. I will do my best to keep the queue moving during the school break.
Please remember – once your order is placed thru the checkout and paid via your chosen method, I am unable to go in and alter items, quantities etc for you.
I accept Payments through a Secure PayPal Checkout. PayPal Checkout is a well known and extremely secure payment gateway. Its a safe and secure link between your bank and my bank.
PAYPAL OR CREDIT CARDS: This allows you to use your own PayPal account, use Paypal as a guest, PAY-IN-4(Paypal) or you can use your MasterCard or Visa credit card.
You do not require a PayPal account to use your credit card to pay thru our website checkout.
DIRECT DEPOSIT/EFT:– From your bank to my bank – yes of course. Simply email me a list of your goodies you want made, include your fabric selections and mailing address – I will work out a total, and you can pay via direct deposit instead.

Yes, Pay in 4 – this is available as a pay later option by Paypal. No fees to you.. Four spread payments, no interest, no late fees.
PAY-IN-4 works like this – If you have a good rating with Paypal, when you get to the checkout, you’ll be offered the option to PAY IN FULL or PAY IN FOUR PAYMENTS.
If there are any limits or issues with your Paypal account, you may not be able to use the Pay Later option. This is a Paypal decision, not decided by the merchant (Deano)
Therefore, if you are not offered it when checking out on our website, then perhaps give Paypal a call and ask them about it.
* * * Paypal do have measures in place to stop people getting in too deep with pay-later providers, they may simply have a limit on your account or similar.
HOW IT WORKS: the merchant (Deano Designs Perth) gets paid in full for the goods you have ordered. You then basically pay them back over four fortnightly payments.
If you have any issues with the payments, any double ups etc, please get in touch with Paypal and they can sort for you promptly.
WHY WE DO NOT OFFER LOADS OF PAY LATER OPTIONS: It’s simple, they all charge a percentage(commission) for every transaction that uses them. For example Afterpay is 6% – That fee costs the vendor (seller) – so businesses up their prices to cover these costs, so you pay more. The more pay later options they offer, the more they pay in fees, and all the customers pay more, even those that pay in full with cards.
By keeping our payment options limited – we keep our overheads low, our prices steady, and the queue moves at a good pace.
They have introduced their Pay-in-4 (four payments) option, but have not increased their fee to us as a vendor, so we have not had to increase our prices to cover it. If you’ve been paying over inflated prices elsewhere for the same type of products, it’s your choice where you shop next.
15/5/22 – Due to covid exposure risks, cash exchanging hands etc – I have decided it’s time to discontinue this option for while.
This means that if orders are already paid for, I can leave them out for a contactless collection thats safe for everyone.
Don’t stress! I get this question all the time! Having a liner made to fit your cage is simple.
MEASURE: First, measure the internal areas your cage. If you have a odd shape or need gaps for ramps cut into the liners, a rough drawing can help immensely. Then email it to me for a quote.
CONFIRM GO AHEAD: Advise me if we are going ahead with your order, and send thru your fabric selections.
PAY UP FRONT: I will create a product in “CUSTOM ORDER” with your name on it, in the SHOP section. There you will find your order bundled, click the ‘add to cart’ button, pay as usual. You can add other items to your order after the custom one, no problem. I charge upfront as the custom item is to fit your particular cage, I cannot on sell it to recoup costs.

All of the products on the website have individual weights. Once all of your items are in the cart, the built in Australia Post plugin works out the postage due.
I send parcels via parcel post – this is a road service, not express, not air service. I do not offer express satchels as often the products simply do not fit into them.
I do not make money on postage, what you pay when you place an order is paid out by me again when I mail it.
I do not charge you for postage satchels, labels, invoices, or driving your parcel to the post office to lodge it personally – I do this for free.
Just a tip – I offer a discount on certain items, this may end up covering your postage costs.
Yes you can!
Just place your order in the usual way. Postage will be charged if you do not manually select LOCAL PICKUP instead. – There is NO FREIGHT FEE if you pickup.
My workshop is located in Ballajura, 12km north of the Perth CBD.
PAID ORDERS: If paid, I have a box out front I can pop your order into, so you can call in and collect at a convenient time. CONTACTLESS COLLECTION is available.
Before you choose the PICKUP option, please consider how far it is to travel to collect the parcel – postage can work out cheaper than a road trip.
If this happens, don’t panic. Just let me know and I can go to the website and remove your customer information that you supplied last time you ordered. Then you can just register yourself/login again just like a first time user. Easy.
The best review a business can get is a voluntary one – where the customer is not expecting any reward for giving their opinion, or rating the service/product they purchased.
Here at Deano, if you have any concerns with the products I made for you, please get in touch with me directly.Info on the contact us page: Contact Me
On the other hand, if you feel you would like to review the products, service, workmanship etc, you are most welcome to do so on our website, Facebook page, or a Google review. We welcome feedback in any form, but will not make you feel obligated.
In order to use the Kangaroo logo on products you make/sell, you need to pay a fee to the Government body that owns it (around $350 annually). To apply, you submit invoices from your suppliers that you buy the components from, and basically tell them how you turn the components into the different end product. The materials can be from Australia or overseas –
FOR EXAMPLE: polyester fleece (Made in China) and the core material (Made China/overseas) and if they’re sewn together here in Australia – that’s how they class them as AUSTRALIAN MADE. Just another fee for a government body that makes money. So, is it really Australian Made?
