|How to order
Important you read through the entire process on this page
|The following is a general idea of the process for ordering commissioned
work. It is our goal to provide our clients a professional service based on
honesty and integrity.
The first step is to call or e-mail us.
During the initial contact, we discuss what your custom project will be.
Style, material, etc. For new architectural construction blue prints are
enough to start the process.
During the first meeting by looking at books, magazines, previous works,
sketches, or whatever inspires you we can arrive at a point where we can
start to create a design that reflects your personal style. We will never copy
other companies/artist's designs. We maintain uniqueness by not using
the same design twice. Once you have ordered a design it is your unique
piece, we won't duplicate it for another client. We take pride in designing
one of a kind artistic metal in order to keep our designs unique and
Completion of custom work is determined by the amount of orders ahead
We require a small design fee of $150.00. This covers the work of two
sketches and one final. Design fees pay for the time required to sketch
ideas and concepts for you to view. Sketching designs is a process of
working out 'how to create/build' your piece of art. By 'building' it on paper
first, this is a process of problem solving as well as interpreting a design
that will fill your needs. It takes time away from working in the studio. This
is why we charge for design work.
Pricing of any new project is driven by the amount of time it takes to create
your art piece. (Material + Time = Cost) ($500.00 minimum on all orders)
Based on the ideas and information from the first meeting we will provide
you with a drawing(s) and a quote. Upon viewing the drawing(s) the client
can either accept the drawing or can make changes to it.
The next step, once a design has been decided on, 1/2 of the total cost of
the order,needs to be sent to us. This is a non-refundable deposit
required to purchase the materials needed to create your unique metal art..
Once the order has been placed, deposit received, and we have begun to
create your order, any changes to the order at this point will require
Due to the size and weight of our larger items we have found that we can
generally deliver and install them for a competitive charge. However, we
can provide shipping costs based on clients choice of shipping method.
We require full payment of remaining balance prior to delivery and/or
installation. If you have any questions please feel free to contact us.
We love what we do, and we think it reflects in our work.
