Thank you for your interest in commissioning me! Some of my most fun, rewarding embroidery experiences comes from working with other individuals' ideas to make something truly special. I am open to pushing the boundaries of my usual subject matter, but if your concept deviates too much from my personal style, I reserve the right to deny your request. Please visit the FAQ page for extra tidbits and general information!
Turnaround Time: The turnaround time for commissions varies depending on my current workload and the complexity of your request. It can range from as little as one week, up to six weeks.
Sizing: With designs held in embroidery hoops, I generally work in three different sizes - 4, 5, and 6 inch hoops. I consider the 6 inch diameter hoops to be my "standard" size. Depending on what I currently have in stock, I can also work in picture frames. Feel free to state what size hoop you would prefer your design in, but please remember that certain designs or concepts will work better in a small size, and others might require extra room for the details. Feel free to inquire.
Prices: Commission costs will also vary greatly depending on the size and complexity of the piece. Designs held in 4 inch hoops will usually start at 60USD. 5 inch pieces vary greatly depending on the subject matter. Standard size (6 inch) pieces usually range from 120-300USD. Extra special or intricate concepts will cost more. My prices are almost entirely based on the time I put into each piece. Adding stone elements may raise the price a little more, but not by much.
Once all the details of your commission has been discussed and your request has been accepted, I will make a custom listing on here for you to purchase. Once payment is received, I will be able to start work on your piece.
Payment Plans: Payment plans are accepted for projects costing more than 200USD. Usually they will be split into two separate payments up to a week apart. Once all payment is received, I will be able to start work on your piece.
Refunds, Returns, & Failed Payments: Returns and refunds on ready-to-ship pieces are not accepted. For custom orders, refunds can only be accepted when work on your piece has not begun, however, 50% of project price will be kept as a non-refundable deposit. In regards to payment plans, it is imperative that payments are paid on time. I will not accept future orders from customers who fail to make payments in a timely fashion. This may seem harsh, but my art is my livelihood. Late and absent payments prevent me from accepting orders & giving commission slots to other potential customers.
Fabric: I generally work with light grey or black cotton. Feel free to state your preference, but oftentimes the colors in a design will work better with one or the other.
Replications: For the most part, I accept requests to remake previous designs (that aren't other commissions). These will cost a bit more than what I charge for something I make on my own time and list in my shop. For example, I may list a piece in my shop for 60USD, but the cost to recreate it on a commission basis may cost 75USD. Also, please keep in mind that I am unfortunately not a robot so I can't make things completely identical. Rest assured, your piece will be just as good!
