Due to a large volume of orders and the handmade nature of each piece, I'm unable to accommodate more order requests at this time.
If you've already placed an order and paid the deposit, it will not be affected. If you've submitted an inquiry on 8/28/2022 or before, you will still receive a response and I may be able to accommodate your order. New inquiries are currently closed.

In the meantime, here's more about the original artwork on this page:
Items in this gallery are all past commissions for individuals and businesses, created with a unique design tailored to each customer. New commissions may be inspired by the style of past designs, but these items are one-of-a-kind and will not be exactly reproduced.
See more details in the FAQs below. If you're looking for a reproduction of an existing design, see the original artwork page.

Frequently Asked Questions
How do I order a commission? 1. Inquiry All orders are by inquiry only. Submit the form below, or email firstname.lastname@example.org with details about what you're looking for. If you're unsure, I can help guide you or make suggestions. Due to the high volume of orders I receive, I may not be able to start your order for several weeks. In the inquiry process, I will let you know where you are in line and give you an idea of the timeline you can expect. 2. Design I will ask a series of follow-up questions to make sure we're on the same page about what you're looking for. There's usually a little bit of back and forth to make sure I'm bringing your vision to life. 3. Agreement and Deposit Once the details are finalized, I will send you a standard agreement to sign, along with a custom order listing. A minimum $100 deposit is due at this time to secure your spot in line. 3. Processing Before work begins on your order, I will reach out to let you know I'm ready to start on it. A total of 50% payment will be due before work begins. See the payment FAQ for more details. Processing time is usually 1-4 weeks from the time I start your order. Rush processing may be possible for an additional fee, depending on availability. 4. Delivery You will receive a shipping confirmation email with a tracking number. Orders are usually shipped with USPS priority mail and should arrive within 1-3 business days. Please note that delivery time is separate from the artwork processing time.
How much does a commission cost? Each individual piece will vary in price based on your budget and the work requested. These price ranges are generally what you can expect based on the size of the artwork, though the price will depend on how much time and skill will go into the piece. During the inquiry process, I will provide you with a quote for your order. 8x10: $250- $400 11x14: $300- $600 16x20: $500- $900 20x24: $700- $1200 24x30: $800- $1500+
What's included in the price? All prices include a shadowbox frame (your choice of black or white) and shipping within the US. International shipping may be available, depending on the country, for an additional fee. The price quoted is the final price with no additional fees. The only additional cost might be tax, which is only applicable if the artwork is shipping to Texas. (My business nexus is in Texas and you don't need to know what that means other than orders shipping to Texas will have tax added. For items shipping outside of Texas, see your local sales and use tax regulations.) If you're curious how I arrive at my price points, I'm happy to provide a more detailed breakdown.
How are commissions different than original artwork? Commissions are completely original, one-of-a-kind works of art that are created with a unique vision just for you. Items in this category might include your company logo, a name personalized with a unique design, or anything created for you that has not been produced before. These take more time and skill and will not be reproduced for anyone else. For these reasons, the price range is higher on commissions.
Will the artwork fade over time? How do I care for my artwork? All artwork is finished with a UV resistant sealant. Archival materials are also used to ensure the art will be preserved over time. It's best to keep the art out of direct sunlight to prevent fading over time. If possible, keep it out of humidity and extreme temperatures. Paper quilling art is best protected behind a shadow box frame, which is provided with each order. If for any reason you choose not to frame it, use canned air or a light duster to keep it clean.
When is payment due? Do you offer payment plans? Payment for commissions is due on the following schedule: - $100 to reserve your spot in line. - 50% of total payment due before work begins (your $100 will apply toward this 50% total). - Remaining 50% balance due before artwork ships. For example, for a $500 commission: - $100 due to reserve your spot; - Additional $150 due before work begins (making a total deposit so far of $250); - Balance of $250 due when work is complete and before the item ships. Additional payment plans are available through PayPal's Pay Later option. If you need additional accommodation on splitting payments, I'm happy to help.
Do you take cancellations, refunds, or exchanges? If you would like to cancel your place in line before work begins, 50% of your deposit will be refundable. Once work begins, no payments made are eligible for refund, due to the personalized nature of each piece. I do not accept exchanges. If your artwork arrives damaged or there are any issues with your product, please contact me within 48 hours at email@example.com to find a resolution.
