Custom Orders - The Things
Hi there! We can't wait to help you with your custom design.
Do you have a special song or verse you'd like us to get started with? Maybe you'd like one of our existing designs modified to add a special name or date?
Because we are working with words that are already written, and because we want your design to look absolutley perfect, it's hard to pin down a design to a particular size or shape as the words and tamber of the verses tend to lend themselves to a certain arrangement. For example, a song with simple lyrics like our "Baby Mine" artwork tends to look more compact. So, for that design we chose a smaller and squarer frame. An intricate song like George Michael's "Freedom 90!" where every verse is different was just too intricate to constrain at a smaller size.
So what we do is this. We have a custom design fee of $90, where you tell us about your special song, vows, poem or verse. We take a look at it and come back to you with some options about sizing and pricing of your final design (which is based on the size of your piece). When you've decided on the size of your artwork, we set to designing you a beautiful custom piece and send you a low resolution copy for approval or one round of alterations.
If you the proceed with the design, $50 of your Design Fee is credited back towards your artwork and you are invoiced for the remaining amount before we send it off to be printed on the highest quality fine art matte paper and coated with a soft touch laminate for protection and then handframed in Australian timber.
What we do ask is that, if the piece you ask us to design is so amazing that we think it belongs in our standard collection (without your name or anniversary dates on it), that we retain the rights to that design and the ability to add it to our collection at a later date if we wish.
It is always such a privilege to hear the stories and memories that a few special words or lyrics bring to life for our clients. We can't wait to hear from you.
