Thank you for your interest in Tiny Shindigs by Amelia Adams! I look forward to creating a beautiful one-of-a-kind design with you. Ours is a collaborative process, so that the artwork I create is completely unique to you.
HOW I WORK
I create whimsical watercolor crests and emblems that are tailored to your aesthetic. These can include your hobbies, favorite plants and animals, your house, a beloved pet, or anything else that represents you. I design custom crests for a flat fee depending on the intricacy of the design.
You will be provided your crest in a digital file so that you can include your crest in party goodies. In the past I’ve had couples print napkins, drink stirrers, glasses, corn hole boards, and banners.
If you choose, I can incorporate the crest into save-the-dates, invitations, personal stationary, etc. I can compliment the crest with illustrations, borders, and hand lettering. There are also a number of printing techniques to choose from, such as: custom letterpress, die cuts, hot foil stamping, embossing, and bespoke papers and ribbon.
To begin, please fill out the information form on the bottom of this page. Also, Images really help me to visualize your aesthetic. The more visuals I have of your favorite things or other paper goods you like, the better I can match my designs to your vision. Please either send images in an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or send me a link to your Pinterest board:
You will provided with an estimate based on your feedback. Custom crests generally range from $200-$400. A nonrefundable 30% deposit of the total estimate is required before we can begin the design process. If you are interested in incorporating your custom crest into any printed pieces, you will be provided a separate quote based on the intricacy, number of pieces, and printing method.
ONTO THE GOOD STUFF...
Now we can start creating your custom crest! You will be provided several crest designs to choose from. After you choose a design, you will be sent a digital proof to approve. I am able to do three digital proofs, any additional proofs may be subject to an added fee.
If you are printing your crest, I will send you a physical press proof to review. One press proof is complimentary, any additional proofs will have an added fee. Once you are in absolute love with your design and the physical proof is approved, we go to print! You will be charged the remainder of the balance at this time.
The design process can take as little as 2-3 weeks. However, I will spend as much time as it takes to create the perfect crest! The physical press proofs will take 5-7 business days. The final printing process will vary on the intricacy of your design and printing method. Custom die cuts and letterpress suites take about 3-4 weeks. Digital printing takes about 10-14 business days.
