All projects are custom created based on your needs, size of the project and materials and design chosen. While every effort is made to create fabrics to complement your decor, we can not guarantee exact color duplication because of the nature of hand dyed fabric.
Photos will be printed with dye directly onto cotton fabric for incorporating into the project. Depending on resolution of the source image, photos can be printed at any size up to 8″x10″. When working with digital photos or scanned images, it is best to use the highest resolution available. Resizing the photos can cause distortion especially if the photo is enlarged. I have the ability to crop and edit the photos for an additional fee. Unfortunately I can not use copyrighted photos unless you get a release from the copyright owner. Electronic photos can be sent via email or on cd. Original photos can be sent to me to scan and print out. Photos printed on fabric will differ slightly in color and resolution from the original photo. Every effort will be made to create as clean a photo as possible.
The dyed fabrics and photo fabric have been treated to minimize fading from sunlight exposure, but as with all dyed products, they will fade over time. The amount and speed of fading is a factor of how much sunlight the project is subjected to and how the product is cared for and how often it is washed. All projects should be washed in cold water, on the hand wash or gentle cycle using mild detergent. Bleach or detergents with bleach additives should not be used. For best results lie flat to dry out of direct sunlight.
I will need 50% of the fee at the time the contract is signed. Once the project is completed, you will be contacted with a photograph and final billing total. The final project will be delivered when the full payment has been received. I accept money orders and personal checks. I will wait for Personal checks to clear the bank before beginning the project or sending the completed project.
