Handmade vs. Factory Made

Not only are SpyderWeb Targets proudly made in the USA, they are also made by hand, one at a time, by archers, and for archers.

We live in a world where many things are mass-produced. Not that there is anything necessarily wrong with that. It’s great that some things are manufactured in massive quantities in order to fill a worldwide demand for them. But it’s also wonderful that more consumers are beginning see the benefits and embracing companies that are making their products carefully and thoughtfully by hand, one at a time.

SpyderWeb Targets aren’t being churned out in a factory somewhere, which means that you, the consumer, can be sure you’re getting nothing less than the highest quality product humanly possible.

SpyderWeb Targets is dedicated handcrafting each and every one of our archery targets with exceptional design integrity and superior craftsmanship. When you purchase a SpyderWeb Target, you can know that someone conscientiously invested time and skill and mindfulness into its creation. This kind of care and human touch also translates into personal connection with the maker that you don’t get with a factory made product.

At SpyderWeb Targets, we are always available directly to you to consult with or to take care of some difficulty. Although our defect rate is less than 0.5%, we are still human and we believe a company should stand behind its products in the event of failure as a result of manufacturing defect. We feel it is our responsibility to replace any defective targets as well as cover all the packaging and shipping costs. If you have any issues, please call us directly and we will solve the problem for you.

Another benefit of handmade products: top-notch customer service. Pick up the phone to speak with a customer service representative about a foreign-made, mass-produced product you purchased and it’s a game of accent deciphering. When you buy a handmade in the USA product like a SpyderWeb Target, you can breathe a sigh of relief when someone with a grassroots Midwestern accent answers the call.

How is your archery target made?

Before you buy an archery target—or anything where safety is a key factor in performance—ask how it is made. Archery targets made in any foreign country are going to be factory made. If it says "Made in America," know that doesn’t always mean “Handmade in America.”

SpyderWeb Targets are proudly “Handmade in America.” Not only are we committed to forging a high quality product, but forging personal relationships with all of our customers.
