This listing is for a one sided Custom Family on a shared Bike personalized with Star House likenesses of a sweet family of three folks, three pets and heart flag.
This creation currently takes about 6 weeks to make from purchase to post office bon voyage. However, if you are ordering for Christmas we are willing to take orders as late as November 28th, with a shipment date of December 19th and a shipping time of two to four days within the US.
*1* Decide that you would like me to design a custom family on a bike for you. Please make sure the above time frame works for you. If you have any questions or would like to request a rush order (and would like me to calculate/apporve it/ create you a custom listing) please convo me.
*2* Select this listing if it fits the family configuration that you are wanting. If it does not contain the family members and number of pets you are looking for convo me and I will happily create a custom listing for you. There are also listings for stumps stands, pointy sticks and eco finish if you would like to add these item to your custom family here:http://www.etsy.com/shop/urastarhouse?section_id=6982825.
*3* Purchase. Here is a grand etsy tutorial on how to purchase if you are new to etsy:
*4* Send me photos, at least one close-up of the each of you and at least one that shows your height difference. Please send me photos or links or descriptions of what you will be wearing. Please include shoe colors, hair styles, and details like glasses on or off. Please include your color choice for the bike. You can send all these wonderful details to me in an esty convo as long as the files are smaller than 2M. If your files are larger you can send them to me in an email to urastarhouse [!at] yahoo.com.
Please be sure to title the email "Custom family information" or something noticeable like that.
*5* I will take about three business days to create a pencil and paper sketch. I will then scan and send the sketch to you through email or convo (which ever way you gave me your details). You can then let me know what changes or additions you would like me to make. I will them scan you a modified sketch for your approval. Any additional changes will follow the same process of modification, scanning and approval until you say that you think the sketch is ready to transfer to wood.
*6* I then transfer the final design to local poplar wood (a fast growing hardwood sustainably logged from our friends' land near Asheville, NC). I cut the design out, sand the edges, burn on the details, and paint it with US made, non-toxic liquid water colors. I then take photos of the topper (if there is time) and send you photos (these photos are for you to use how ever you would like, thank-you cards, blogs, ect. and if it is alright with you I will add then to a listing in my shop to be another example). The topper is then finished with my homemade bee's wax and organic jojoba oil finish. The topper is polished and then packaged and taken down to the friendly folks at my local post office, where they are shipped first class (unless they are too heavy) and generally arrive to your post/mail box in two to three days.
The topper will be about 5 1/2" tall and about 8" long.
