What are my customization options and why do prices vary so much?
Customization can be as simple as adding a name or monogram to a gift, but the way in which you do that can vary quite a bit. You could engrave it. You could use a color vinyl or patterned vinyl. You could use wood, or acrylic, or sublimated hardboard. And you can combine any of these into something completely unique and unusual.
Each of the options above require Kari to design it and set it up for the proper machinery, and then Marj to execute the choice or application. So the time commitment ranges from a few minutes up to hours or even days in cases where layers or coats have to dry and cure before other layers or mediums can be applied.
And we are still only as far as a monogram.
Now imagine creating a gift, or piece of the gift, completely from scratch. Again this could take from a few minutes to days.
Customization quotes are based on material costs, design complexity and application requirements. This is why your budget becomes important. We want to offer the most personal and stunning customization for the most reasonable price. We all have the same goal - that the recipient receives a truly thoughtful gift that will be remembered and cherished for years.
We offer base prices on the website, and then offer you a range of customization options from simple to extravagant. So, in a very real sense, you control the final price of your gift. Any customization option you choose will make an ordinary gift extraordinary, so there's really no wrong choice - just a range of right ones.
