NEXT STEP
  Before I start the work I will need a deposit of  10.   I am really sorry to have to do this but recently I spent a lot of time working on a large scale design.   I needed to complete the design (as it was unusual) so that I could give an exact price.   I was told the design was perfect and just what was needed  (I email a "capture" of the design to the customer and modify the design where needed until they are happy)  but despite several emails I have not been paid for my work.   It is very annoying.   So, I have decided to charge a deposit so at least some of my time will be paid for if the customer does walk away.
 

 

  I can work from a photograph, a sketch or a collection of ideas.
 

If a picture needs things editing out of it I can do that or I can put extra bits in, like flowers etc, at no extra charge. 

 

I can work from graphic files sent by email as long as they are not too compressed or optimised so that quality and definition is lost (.jpg files are smaller and so quicker to send and receive).  If the picture looks OK to you then it will probably be fine, but obviously I cannot produce a 3 foot square wall-hanging from a passport sized photograph!

 

 

    The information I need from you with the picture is:-        Does anything need editing or changing (background?) in the picture?
     What count fabric would you prefer to work on?
    What size (approximately) would you like the finished design to be?
    Would you prefer a kit or a chart?
  The prices above will give you an idea of my charges but I will give you an exact quote for the price of a kit or chart when I have had a chance to see the picture and read your requirements.  Please note that I can NOT print designs onto fabric or canvas.
