Learn How to Customize Your 2016 Select Putter

New 2016 Scotty Cameron Select putters can be restored, customized and/or authenticated using our simplified online form designed especially for these new models. Certain Custom Shop options, such as bumper stamping and Custom Shop character stamping in the milled Cherry Bombs/Dots, cannot be added to the 2016 Select models. Nearly all of our other customizations and accessories are available, so personalizing your new Select is easier than ever. Check out the video below to see how easy customizing your new 2016 Select putter can be. For any other Scotty Cameron putter, please click here to learn more about our customization options.

GETTING STARTED: DETERMINE YOUR PUTTER MODEL

Choose your putter model from the drop-down menu to get started. This form should be used to complete a Custom Shop order for only 2016 Select models (i.e., 2016 Select Newport, 2016 Select Newport 2, etc.). If you have any questions about the putter model you own, you can click here to view the new 2016 Select putters.

TURNAROUND TIME: CUSTOMIZATION VS. RESTORATION

We’ve listed the approximate turnaround times for restoration and custom work at the top of the order form to give you an estimate of how long your putter will be at the Custom Shop.

Custom work entails any service performed at the Custom Shop that does not include the full restoration of your putter(s). Authentication, personalization, stamps, additional dots and lines, reshafting, adjustments, weight changes, grips, shaft bands, headcovers and paintfill services fall under “Custom Work”.

Restoration involves stripping your putter’s finish, removing minor scratches, dents and dings, re-milling the face and returning the putter to its original, like-new condition with a restored finish, any customizations you ordered and paintfill.

INSURING YOUR PUTTER

FedEx insures all of our outbound packages for the dollar amount you specify on the Custom Shop order form. Following is a breakdown of the additional fee to expect for insuring your putter: $.00-$100 = $.00, $100.01-$500 = $2.50 minimum, $500.01- $3000 = $.50 per $100 of value.

If you want to insure your putter for more than $3000.00, please make arrangements with an alternate insurer for full coverage. FedEx will not be held responsible for shipments or claims exceeding $3000.00 in declared value.

WHAT IS RESTORATION?

Restoration involves stripping your putter's finish, removing minor scratches, dents and dings from the putter head, re-milling the face and returning the putter to its original, like-new condition with a restored finish (your choice of our Silver or Black finish is included with restoration; see Finishes below for more information), including new custom or original paintfill. Additionally, we will install a new shaft, shaft band, grip and standard Custom Shop headcover (you may choose to upgrade your grip, headcover or shaft band to a shaft ring for additional charges), and make loft, lie and length adjustments per your request (within reason).

The new 2016 Select putters all have inserts, so restoration is $225. This includes your choice of either our Silver or Black finish. The Black finish will NOT be applied to any of the face inlays of the 2016 Select models. So, please keep that in mind if you’d like your putter restored with this finish.

Also, the Custom Shop can personalize 2016 Select putters on the face toe only with up to 4 initials on most models (Newport M1 Mallets can only accept 3 initials on the face toe), apply special Custom Shop stamps (face toe only), mill additional sight dots and/or sight lines on the topline, adjust headweight, as well as authenticate your putter.

AVAILABLE FINISHES

The choice of a Custom Shop finish with restoration has been simplified. Any Scotty Cameron putter can now be restored to either our silver-colored or black-colored finish. Finish choice is included in the price of restoration. And, the Custom Shop stamp is no longer a requirement with a finish change. This change in our services expands the possibilities for those customers with silver-colored stainless steel putters that can now be finished in black.

NOTE: Please keep in mind that the Black finish CANNOT be applied to any of the face inlays of the 2016 Select models.
Here’s how it works:

Stainless Steel Putters (2016 Select Newport, Newport 2 and Newport 2.5)
1) Stainless steel putters restored with our “Silver” finish will receive the same raw stainless steel finish as they originally were made with, restored to like new.
2) Stainless steel putters restored with our “Black” finish will receive the same durable black finish as our black Select putters introduced in 2012. This glare-reducing finish will be applied to the putter head only; the face inlay will remain silver-colored, raw stainless steel.

Multi-material Stainless Steel/Aluminum Putters (2016 Select Newport 2 Notchback, Newport 2 Notchback Dual Balance, Newport M1 Mallet and Newport M2 Mallet)
The 2016 Select putters above that contain aluminum inlays in their face-sole construction can have the putter head (stainless steel components only) restored with either our Silver or Black finish. However, the aluminum components (face-sole inlays) will not be restored. If they are too damaged to re-use, we will replace them when restoring the putter.

TOUR FINISHES
Tour-only finishes are not available unless the putter sent to the Custom Shop came with a Tour-only finish originally applied by the Scotty Cameron Tour Department. These include, but are not limited to: Chromatic Bronze, Chromatic Blue, Copper and Gold. Oil Can finishes are no longer offered. If you have a Tour putter and have questions about the finish options available with restoration, please call the Custom Shop at 760-591-9720.

ALUMINUM PUTTER RESTORATION
California environmental regulations restrict us from restoring aluminum putters and/or aluminum components such as the 2016 Select aluminum face-sole inlays, Futura, Detour, Studio Select Kombi, Red X Mids & Longs, Select Big Sur and Caliente models. We do offer many other Custom Shop services for these putters, such as reshaft, grip, headcover, stamps, paintfill, etc.

AFTERMARKET FINISHES
We cannot perform ANY work on a putter with an aftermarket finish and must return it as-is (less shipping) unless the Scotty Cameron Custom Shop restores it.

IF YOUR PUTTER CANNOT BE RESTORED
If a putter is too damaged for restoration or has infringing marks, all charges will be credited minus the cost of shipping and we will return your putter.

AUTHENTICATION
The Scotty Cameron Authentication Department has been established to maintain the integrity of the Scotty Cameron brand by providing the facts about a Scotty Cameron putter or product by determining if a putter or product is authentic, has been modified in the aftermarket, or is counterfeit. The Authentication Department will not include player information or historical data related to a putter submitted for Authentication. Authentication is offered at $60 (discounted from $75) on Restoration orders.
The authentication service is unbiased and based completely on the facts of the putter or merchandise received. A Certificate of Authenticity (COA) will be provided determining the authenticity of a putter. The putter will also be added to our authentication database providing easy online access to authentication information and photographs based on the COA number.

PERSONALIZING YOUR 2016 SELECT PUTTER

ADDING INITIALS

Most 2016 Select putter models can accept up to four (4) initials on the face toe ONLY. The Newport M1 Mallet can only accept three (3) initials due to available space. Initials can be stamped in capital letters only, separated by periods or not, and either aligned straight or dancing. In some instances, the Custom Shop may find it necessary to stamp in another location depending on the putter model. The Custom Shop reserves the right to stamp initials and bumper names in the most appropriate location, as well as select the appropriate font size and spacing.

Since the Custom Shop hand-stamps putters (we do not engrave), you may occasionally see "mushrooming" around a stamped character. During the strike of the hammer when the stamp is applied, the metal is literally pressed out and up from beneath the stamp's impression. This is a mark of craftsmanship and displays Scotty's commitment to the personal attention each putter receives.

CUSTOM SHOP STAMPS

We offer nine character stamps in the Custom Shop. Each stamp is $30.00. On 2016 Select putter models, you can add only one (1) stamp on the face toe. This is the only location on these models where Custom Shop stamps can be added. We cannot add stamps in the Cherry Bomb/Dot circles on these putter models due to the construction of the face inlays.

If you’re only adding stamps and/or initials to these new Select models and would like to have paintfill added, please choose “Paint New Customizations Only – No Charge” from the Paintfill drop-down menu and click on the color you’d like us to apply once we stamp the putter. There is no charge for paintfill re-application on new customizations like initials or stamps.

Tour stamps (i.e, Scotty Dog, Peace Sign, Jester, Skull & Crossbones, etc.) are not available in the Custom Shop. Scotty hand-stamps these on Tour putters only.

Since the Custom Shop hand-stamps putters (we do not engrave), you may occasionally see "mushrooming" around a stamped character. During the strike of the hammer when the stamp is applied, the metal is pressed out and up from beneath the stamp's impression. This is a mark of craftsmanship and displays Scotty's commitment to the personal attention each putter receives while at the Custom Shop.

BUMPER STAMPING

Bumper stamping is not available on the 2016 Select putter models.

ADDING A SIGHT DOT OR SIGHT LINE(S)

For additional alignment assistance you can have the Scotty Cameron Custom Shop mill a sight dot or sight line(s) on the topline of your new 2016 Select putter. Sight dots and sight lines are $30 for the first one and $10 for each additional. You can add one sight dot. Or, you can have us mill either one or two lines on the topline. For the 2016 Select putters, we are not offering sight lines in the flange.

Additionally, we cannot weld up or remove production sight lines, site dots or engravings, and will not mill sight lines over existing sight dots, sight circles, engravings, stamps or original markings.

RESHAFTING YOUR PUTTER

A new shaft, shaft band and grip are included in the price of a Reshaft. Only certain grips are included and they are listed as No Charge in the Grip menu after you select Reshaft (the Custom Shop order form will refresh with new pricing).

If you do not choose a grip, we will replace yours with a standard grip that will fit your putter (tour, prototype & limited grips are not available). Our premium grips (normally $37.00+) are discounted by $15.00 when a Reshaft is selected. See the Grips section for available grips, prices and/or to change your grip selection.

A Reshaft is required if you are lengthening your putter. A new grip is required if you are shortening your putter, but you do not have to get a Reshaft. Please keep this in mind if you are filling in your Desired Length under the Adjustments section.

We do not save or return shafts, shaft bands or grips. Our shafts are recycled. Also, it is quite acceptable to send in just your putter head for a Reshaft. It can save on your shipping cost, as well as packing material. JAT.

LENGTH, LOFT & LIE ADJUSTMENTS

Loft and lie adjustments are free with any order of $45 or more. Length adjustments do incur additional charges on non-Restoration, Custom work-only orders. If you are requesting that we shorten your putter's length, we cannot reuse your original grip (we do not save grips) and you must purchase a grip. If you are having us lengthen your putter, we must Reshaft your putter ($45.00). An original grip is included in this service price, and you may choose to upgrade to a different grip if you like for an additional charge. Please see our Grips menu for details.

CHANGING SOLE WEIGHTS

Scotty Cameron 2016 Select putters have sole weights that can be changed out for new weight denominations by the Custom Shop, or with the Scotty Cameron Weight Tool. To add even more personality to your putter, you can choose to have us install weights engraved with the same Custom Shop characters you see in our Stamps section. Click on the drop-down menu in the Weight section to select new weights for your putter.

Returning weights: Old/existing weights will be returned. You are free to remove weights prior to sending your putter to the Custom Shop. Weights will only be installed in equal increments (e.g., we won't put 20g in the toe and 10g in the heel). Different engraved characters of the same weight increment can be ordered for the heel and toe per the Custom Shop options order form.

Circle T replacement weights for a Select Tour/Circle T putter are $125 for stainless steel Circle T weights (2 x 10g, 2 x 15g,2 x 20g) and $165 for copper-tungsten Circle T weights (2 x 25g, 2 x 30g). A Custom Shop representative will contact you if your order contains a Circle T putter.

GET A GRIP

With Restoration, reshaft or length change, the Custom Shop will replace your grip with an original design that matches the model/era of the putter sent in unless another grip is chosen. You can choose any grip you like from the Grip menu (pricing depends on the model selected).

Only one grip per putter is available on a Custom Shop order. Grips available on Custom Shop orders are not sold separately and must be installed at the Custom Shop before we return your putter.

For an assortment of grips that we sell separately, please see the online Scotty Cameron Studio Store under Accessories. These also ship separately and cannot be included or shipped with your Custom Shop order.

Grips are installed at the Custom Shop using one wrap of tape. If you desire additional wraps, please specify in the Notes box at the bottom of the Custom Shop order form.

Mid-Size grips - Mid-Size grips are slightly larger in thickness than our standard grips. They are equivalent to about 4 total wraps of tape versus our standard one wrap.

SHAFT BAND

The Custom Shop will replace your shaft band for no charge during a restoration, reshaft or when a putter arrives with a worn or missing band. The Custom Shop reserves the right to place the shaft band in the most appropriate location. Tour, limited and specialty shaft bands are only available as replacements on putters that originally came with them. The Custom Shop will not apply Tour, limited or specialty shaft bands to other putters.

One shaft band per putter - Only one shaft band per putter is available on Custom Shop orders. Shaft bands are not sold separately and must be installed at the Custom Shop before we return your putter; we will not include loose shaft bands when returning your putter.

Application - We apply shaft bands vertically down the shaft of stepless shafts and wrap them around horizontally on stepped shafts.

Shaft Rings - A new grip purchase is required for installation of a shaft ring.

PROTECT YOUR PUTTER WITH A HEADCOVER

With Restoration, Custom Shop Black Nylon headcover matching your putter’s head shape is included in the price of Restoration. If you do not choose a different headcover from the menu, the appropriate Custom Shop Black Nylon headcover will be included with your putter.

Only one headcover per putter is available on a Custom Shop order. Custom Shop headcovers are not sold separately and must be included at the Custom Shop before we return your putter.

For an assortment of headcovers that we sell separately, please see the online Scotty Cameron Studio Store under Accessories. These ship separately and cannot be included or shipped with your Custom Shop order.

PERSONALIZE YOUR PUTTER WITH PAINTFILL

You can select up to four colors for your putter's paint scheme. The Custom Shop reserves the right to apply your chosen colors in the most appropriate locations on your putter. Although we strive to customize your putter with your chosen theme, school colors, favorite team, etc., we cannot fulfill every request. For example, we do not alternate paintfill on every other letter within an engraving, and we do not create custom blended colors.

Click on the paintfill color(s) you want, and you'll see a highlight appear around your choice(s). You can specify in the Notes box if you'd like your sight line(s) and/or sight dot to be a certain color. For example, if you have selected translucent emerald green, translucent orange, translucent purple and white as the color scheme for your putter, you can simply state in the Notes section: "Please paint sight line white."

There are several ways to have your putter's paint scheme customized, re-applied, changed or refreshed.

Paintfill only - For $72, the Custom Shop will apply new custom paintfill of your choice or repaint your putter to its original design. Choose “Repaint with Custom Colors” or “Repaint with Original Colors” from the Paintfill drop-down menu. If you are only adding personalization (i.e., initials or character stamping), new stamps or sight dot/lines, we will paint the new customizations for free. Simply select “Paint New Customizations Only – No Charge” from the drop-down menu.

Restoration - New paintfill is included in the price of our full Restoration service. Click on your selected colors and the information will be included on your order. You can also choose to have us repaint your putter to its original colors.

Premium grip and headcover purchase - By purchasing a premium grip ($37.00+) AND a premium headcover ($76.00+), paintfill is included. You'll notice that the Paintfill service price will change to No Charge after selecting this combination from the Grip and Headcover menu.

NOTES

The Notes section is reserved for brief comments related to your Custom Shop order. Although you may want to elaborate at length regarding your putter, it is highly recommended and greatly appreciated if you keep your notes brief, clear and to the point. Custom Shop work is performed at the discretion of Scotty Cameron and not all requests can be fulfilled.

GOTTA HAVE IT! ITEMS

Gotta Have It! items are exclusively available only with a Custom Shop order. These are usually limited items and will change from time-to-time. Scotty added this option to the Custom Shop to give customers another way to enjoy their passion for Scotty Cameron putters and accessories

We look forward to sending you back a putter customized, authenticated and/or restored proudly at the only genuine Scotty Cameron Custom Shop.
