    • Bladed weapons. This includes knives designed to cause bodily harm and any part or component thereof. A bladed weapon includes automatic knives, knives that are undetectable by a metal detector, stilettos, switchblades, butterfly knives, throwing knives, folding knives, gravity knives, and disguised knives (for example, a sword cane).
    • Explosive devices. This includes grenades, rockets, explosives, incendiary devices, missiles, land mines, and related parts or components thereof;
    • Toy guns or other items with arms-like appearance. This includes paintball guns, airsoft guns, training weapons, mock guns, mock weapons, weapon replicas, and items that look like a gun or other weapon; and

  • Printing & Delivery Considerations
    • Unless specified, Makelab will determine best print orientation. If a specific print orientation and settings are desired, client must write explicit direction in the notes/message section of the order submission.
