FAQ for custom orders

How much does your design service cost?

Nothing. I include your design work and proof with your order. You don't pay anything until you are happy with the proof and ready to order.

What do I need to get started?

Just an idea of what you want is all you need. I work from descriptions, ideas, sketches, and artwork to make you proofs. If you aren't sure what will fit or what it will look like don't hesitate to ask and we will work to create your own artwork to  make you a proof so you can see your design brought to life. Don't hesitate to request changes until it is exactly what you want.
