About Us

What Steel Life Can do for you

We pride ourselves on prompt, friendly service. All our products are made to measure, with our designs or yours.


All our designs are created in 3mm plate steel or out of 3mm Cor-ten steel (this is steel that is made to rust, and lasts a lifetime).


Whatever design or image you can show or convey to me I can reproduce in whatever size you wish to have.

100% new zealand made

All of our products are made locally here in New Zealand.

01. Submit Your idea

This can be a good photo, or even a drawing of what you are after. A rough idea as to the size you would like it to be.

02. Mock Up

I will get back to you with a price for the size you require and in a lot of cases I can provide a rough mock up of the design.

03. REvisions

If you are happy with that or would like to make some changes, I will resend the mock up changed or added to.


04. Payment

Once you are happy with the design and ready to go, I will get in contact send you some bank details for payment.

05. Completion

In most cases it takes a week to produce and can be either posted or picked up from the market on a Sunday.
