FAQs About Custom WorkHow much does it cost?
The costs depend on the magnitude of the project. If you request small changes to a production sculpture, the additional costs can run 10% to 30% of the price of the standard piece. If you request a major scale-up of a production piece, you can expect 2 to 4 times more expense, depending on the magnitude of the scale-up. A brand new piece can be much more expensive than an adaptation of an existing piece, because the artist must spend extra time designing the piece as well as determining how to best execute the design. These are very broad rules of thumb....each project is unique.
How long does it take?
The time involved is dependent on the complexity of the project and the artist's workload at the time the project is commissioned. The more time you can allow the artist, the better the results and the lower the cost. However, if your project has a short lead time, rest assured we will make every effort to meet your needs.
Can I return it?
Custom work, by its nature, is based upon your unique specifications. Because of this, custom work is not returnable. Yes, there is some risk involved that you may not like the finished product, but having said that, we can report to you that it is a very rare occasion that someone is not completely satisfied with the custom work they have ordered.
What if I want to make changes after work has started?
If you wish changes after work has commenced, we will provide a written estimate of the impact on cost and schedule for your approval. If you decide to cancel a project after work has commenced, you will be charged for work done up to the time of cancellation.
Do you provide installation services?
Generally, we do not provide installation services. Most custom work is relatively easy to install and can be done by a handyman. For more complex projects, it may be necessary to hire a local contractor.
