Binary cross stitches, custom order completed cross stitch, mounted or framed

---The Story---

Not sure what to get your techie dad for Christmas?

Computer programmer wife? Hacker husband? Teenager who lols at memes? And you're thinking...maybe some funny/cool/hip wall art?

This is the listing you're looking for. (Insert "droids" joke here.)

---The Deets---

Purchasing this listing gets you EITHER a completed small up-to-10-letters-in-binary cross stitch, framed in a 2x3" or 3" round frame, OR a completed up-to-10-letters-in-binary cross stitch, mounted on 5x7 mounting board and ready for you to frame, OR a deposit on a larger binary message.

The second photo shows exactly what you can get with this listing alone (though the binary has been expanded as shown in the third photo to include the spaces in the phrase).

Each of the pictured cross stitches says "I love you" in binary code, except the first, which is a special message custom ordered for a special husband on Valentine's Day (additional charge for extra letters and for the frame would bring the cost of that example to $23 including s&h).

*FRAME: 2x3" secondhand frames or 3" round embroidery hoops come free with this listing.
If you would like your binary message mounted on a 5x7 or 4x6 mounting board, that's also available but it won't come with a frame.

*SHIP: These will ship via USPS first class with delivery confirmation or international first class within a week, usually sooner.

*GIFT WRAP: If you would like to give this as a gift, let me know and I'll wrap it up and include a notecard for your message! Or if you'd like me to mail it directly to the recipient, be sure the correct address is listed in the purchase order and what you'd like your notecard to say, and I'll send it on your behalf. : )

Obviously, binary code is not at all unique to me, but my designs are, and this one's for sale in my shop for only a few bucks! Please don't copy without purchasing it, and please don't pin without permission! Thanks.

Frequently asked questions about aliciawatkins

I love to do custom work during the non-holiday months! I try to work on one custom project at a time so that I can give each project my full customizing attention; as a result, a significant lead time on deadlines for receiving your custom order is very much appreciated.

If possible, try to contact me at least a month in advance of a deadline for receiving a 5x7 custom cross stitch. (That said, if you're in a pinch and you know I'm the stitcher for the job, convo me anyway! If I happen to be in between custom orders, I can often get things out in a much shorter time, and like I said, I love working with customers on personalized stitchery.)
Most of my small finished cross stitches have an option for gift wrapping.

If you don't see a drop-down list as you purchase a small hooped or framed cross stitch (smaller than 4x6), but you would like your item to be wrapped in plain paper (with a small notecard for your message included), request gift wrap as you check out in the "notes to seller"!

If you're having your gift sent directly to the recipient, please double-check the address it's going to before you finish checking out, and let me know what you'd like me to write in the notecard to your recipient! :)
Mini kits are available for wholesale ordering at any time; contact me for details on which kits I have available with shelf-ready labeling, and for pricing details!

I also offer a selection of finished cross stitch available for wholesale or certain consignment situations, for stores that feel my work would be a good fit. Contact me if you're interested in carrying my work in your store, and we'll talk about what I've done in the past and what you're looking for! :)
I believe in using secondhand frames because it's eco-friendly, supports my local thrift shops, and allows me to frame your items, if you'd like that, at very low cost.

Because they are unique and unapproved by you, I don't pass on the cost of the secondhand frames to you, except for the cost of shipping (usually about a $2 difference).

When you order an item from me, rest assured that you are only paying for the stitchwork, and you may treat the frame as a "suggestion" -- if you don't like it, give the frame away! Your 4x6 or larger cross stitch will come with a mounting board that will allow you to easily pop it out of the "suggested" frame I've sent it in and into any same-sized frame of your choice.
I can't send you a photo of your options for 4x6 or larger frames; I have too many frames and a too quickly rotating stock for that. However, you're welcome to let me know your preferences in color and material (i.e. wood, metal, plastic) and I'll do what I can to accommodate your wishes.

If you receive your stitchwork and you HATE the frame I chose from my cache of secondhand frames, never fear! The stitching for a 4x6 or larger frame will be mounted on a board that you can simply pop out of the secondhand frame you received, and pop INto a frame you choose from a local store, another Etsy seller, or anywhere you find perfect frames.

Because the secondhand frames I send are free, I cannot offer replacements or frame-related refunds.
Google and Youtube are your BFFs in learning to cross stitch, but if you've purchased a kit or pattern from my shop, I can also offer you a Basic Cross Stitch instruction booklet via email. Just let me know you'd like one, and I'll send it along! :)
