Q: So exactly who are you?
A: The Alchemist's Cabinet is a creative design and production company. We are a sister company to Dragon Keep Productions.
Q: What services do you provide?
A: The Alchemist's Cabinet provides many different services; more than what we list here on the website. From computer projects to designing websites and documents to photo editing, alteration, and repair to the printed documents themselves and everything in between. We even provide idea and product services for parties, get-togethers, meetings, etc. If we can't do it, we will direct you to someone who can!
Q: Do you have a price schedule for your work?
A: Since each project we receive is unique, it would be very difficult to put a definite price schedule online. We will, however, give you written estimates or quotes before any work is started so you can make an informed decision. We also give special discount rates for non-profit organizations such as churches, school groups, and the like.
Q: Where are you located?
A: The Alchemist's Cabinet is presently based in Memphis, TN.
Q: Must people or businesses be local to use your services?
A: Absolutely not. In the modern digital age, the majority of the work we do is actually done from a distance. This is accomplished via email, phone, online conferencing, video conferencing, etc. We will, however, travel to other locations for certain projects if required. Some jobs we produce may be shipped.
Q: If I'm not in your area, how do I contact you?
A: If you have not contacted us before, please feel free to use the "Contact Us" page in this website. If you are presently a customer, you will be provided with the appropriate phone and email contact information.
Q: Did you do your own graphics for this site?
A: Absolutely! All artwork you see is done in Adobe Photoshop. 99.9% of all of the artwork you see are original. Like some artists, however, we may take a photo or piece of art and alter it for our use. For example, the griffons at the top of the page are from a griffon candle holder photo we found. The pillars were created from scratch, the base created and added, and voila...an "instant" graphic accent. The chains, woodwork and tapestry were all created from scratch in Photoshop. Please visit the Samples page to view a small sampling of other pieces we have created.
Q: So do you practice Alchemy?
A: No. That's what Chemical Engineers are for.
Q: Oooookay... well, then why the name "The Alchemist's Cabinet" then?
A: The original name was going to be The Apothecary's Cabinet but since an apothecary is a pharmacist, we thought the name sounded too drug related. Thinking of another Medieval or fantasy name it was decided to use Alchemist. The securing factor for this decision was the definition for Alchemy from the Merriam Webster dictionary: "A power or process of transforming something common into something special." Since we are transforming common ideas into something quite unique, we thought the name apropos.
