How to place your custom portrait.
Place your order.
select contact seller and send us a message including a description of your ideas along with some photos of the subject you wish to have as a portrait. We accept a variety of portraits and multiple portraits on one canvas. Multiple portraits on one canvas will make the price vary so an additional portrait fee may be required.
Please allow 14 days for us to paint the portrait and we'll send a picture for approval, after it's approved, we ship out with tracking. For multiple portraits, please allow extra days. During our busy season (Christmas) please keep in mind we may have to ask for extra days due to the amount of orders we've received. Etsy's system doesn't automatically calculate the processing time for multiple portraits on a single order, so I update it manually. We inform all our clients the time estimate depending on the number of portraits. 🙂
Note: After we send the picture of the portrait for approval we will wait for a response, to either be approved or ask for changes. If there is no response after the 2 attempts for approval, we will assume that the portrait is approved as is and ship it.
We give an allowance for up to two changes, if the work is completely unsatisfactory and it is wished for the order to be cancelled. We will cancel the order and refund 50% to cover our time, labor, and materials (we've never had to use this policy).
Notes for a great portrait photo reference
With custom ordered portraits of any kind ... having different photos from different perspectives would help us greatly to capture the subject looks.
Photos should be (if possible) not too close, not too far from the subject, and (if possible) at the same level of the subject. High quality photos are quite appreciated but not absolutely necessary, we have worked using low quality photos many times before. If you don’t have many photos of the subject, or you are not sure of what to send, please send what you have available, and we can try to find a way to work with the photos you've provided.
Use a smartphone or high-quality camera.
If using a smart phone, please avoid using any filters to ensure we can color the subject correctly.
All custom orders are insured through the postal service and will be replaced if lost, stolen, or damaged during shipping.
