How To Order
Yay, I am so glad you are ready to order your own personalized cross stitch portrait! Read below on how to get your order started.
Submit Your Order
The first step to getting your product is completing an order on this website. Go to "Shop", add what you would like to your cart, and submit! If you are unsure, please reach out to me.
Watch Your Email
Once I receive your order, I will reach out to you via the email you provided within 48 hours to discuss the design and price. (If email is not the best way to contact you, please provide an alternative contact method as a note when ordering.)
Pay and Keep In Contact
You will be required to pay at least half before I start working to design and stitch your piece. I will keep you involved and informed through the entire process. I will send a picture of the design before I start stitching, as well as the finished piece before mailing. I will provide you with a tracking number once your package is shipped.
Things To Think About
Listed below are some things to consider when placing an order. These are questions I will likely ask you in the follow-up email.
Do you want your portrait finished in an embroidery hoop, or prepped to be finished in a frame? Prices include an embroidery hoop finish, but if you would like a framed finish, don't forget to select the "Framing Finish Add-On". Please note, this DOES NOT include the frame. I will only mount the piece on a board that can easily be popped into a frame. If you would like me to provide a frame, please reach out and ask! Also note that some designs will look better in a hoop, while some look better framed. I will let you know what my opinion is, however, it is always your decision!
Best Reference Photo
In order to make your cross stitch look like you, I will need a picture! So be sure that you have a picture ready to send over. It is best to send a picture with the outfits and hairstyles that you would like me to recreate. Photos with the people facing forward are also best, although I can work with profiles. Note that I do not stitch profiles, only faces straight on! If there are multiple elements you want included, just be sure to have a picture of each. I can piece different photos together to make one cohesive piece.
Wording or Borders
Do you want any wording or borders with your portrait? If so, please think about this ahead of time. I do not mind working with you to figure out exactly what you would like and what would look best! That's where the creative process comes in!
Since each piece is personalized and handmade, my standard turnaround time is 4-6 weeks. If you need a piece by a certain date, please let me know (even if it is within that time period). Rush orders are also available for an additional fee.
