Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

I absolutely do custom orders of artwork and personalized prints. Simply message me with what you're looking for and I'll gladly send you an estimate of costs and timeframe.

A completely custom piece of art will cost significantly more than a print, and unfortunately I will not be able to only sell a print of a custom order. Please contact me if you have any questions regarding this policy.

Wholesale availability

Anything you see for sale here is available wholesale. Minimum opening order is $100. Please contact me with questions, and a little bit about yourself and your store location and I will gladly send along a line sheet with prices and availability.
