Do you create more than mobiles?
Yes, Atomic Mobiles also makes tabletop mobiles called "stabiles", Space Age Lamps, and retro earrings with stands that are unique kinetic sculptures.

Where are you located?
North East Los Angeles (NELA) neighborhood of Highland Park, California.

Are Atomic Mobiles mass produced?
No. NOTHING is made in China here. Each piece is custom made by hand when you order in Los Angeles.

How fast will I get my mobile? My normal turnaround (lead) time is about 1 to 2 weeks.  Need quick? We usually have a small amount of mobiles pre-made and ready to ship today which make great gift ideas. I also might be able to create a piece within a day or two if you are on a tight time constraint, contact me with your requirements.

What materials do you use?
Unless otherwise noted, acrylic plexiglass for the shapes and stainless steel wire. Atomic Mobiles only uses high-quality materials, most are made in the USA.

How do I hang my new mobile?
All necessary hardware, line, and easy instructions are included. Please see How To Hang Your New Mobile. If you have any problems or questions, contact us.

Can I hang these mobiles outdoors?
Generally Atomic Mobiles pieces are intended for indoors only. If you live in a mild climate such as Southern California you can hang Atomic Mobiles outdoors, but bring inside in case of heavy rain or winds.

Do you make XL mobiles?
Yes shop XL mobiles here. Want a custom piece, contact us.

Can I pick my own mobile colors?
We love color and offer a wide variety of vibrant colors and you can customize to match your decor and taste at no extra charge. See Custom Colors and Color Inspo. We offer free expert color, style, and size advice. Let us know what you have in mind and we'll create some ideas for you.

Where/how do I specify my custom colors?
Type your color choices by number in the "Special instructions for Custom Colors" message field in the Cart page. Or send a message or email with your color choices and parts numbers.

Can you redesign a style, can you make a custom style?
Generally the process of significantly changing a style would require a complete re-design. In the case of the MCM traditional mobiles it changes the balance of the entire piece. This could be done, but would require an additional design fee which starts at $500. Contact us with your ideas and we'll work up a custom quote. However, we offer a vast selection of styles, so we're confident there is something perfect for your space. Also, unfortunately no, I can't copy an Alexander Calder (or any other artist's) design. 

Can you show me an example of what my piece will look like?
Yes, contact us and tell us what style(s) and color(s) you would like and we'll create a Photoshop mockup. You can also email me a picture of your room and we can superimpose the piece you are considering into your room so you can better visualize what it will look like. Debra is friendly and easy to work with.

How do I clean it?
An occassional dusting with a Swiffer duster or soft micro cloth should do the trick. For extensive finger prints or other dirt I recommend Brilianize or Novus Plastic Polish Cleaning Kits.  Do not use abrasives, paper towels or Windex.
