Below are the steps involved in a typical order. We have tried to address most commonly asked questions. If you find that your question is not answered here, please feel free to contact us.
Gather up all the clothing you'd like included in your order. Yes, ANY clothing, not just t-shirts. We prefer not to work with shoes or underwear (yes, it has happened).
Pre-wash everything, especially if you have pets, or the clothing has been in an attic/basement - we have allergies and this will help us to not be sneezing all over your order.
We will use ALL images on your clothing unless you indicate what you do NOT want used. We find that tape to X out any images you do NOT want used works great. You can also write notes on the tape if there are specific instructions for that piece.
Please do not use sticky notes, they don't stay on during shipping and cause a ton of confusion.
Print off and complete the order form that matches your desired items.
Find a box that is big enough for all your items. Be sure to securely tape all sides so nothing falls out in transit. Don't forget to include the order form that matches your order.
Yes, you can ship more than 1 order in a box. Simply put each order in separate bags with its own order form to keep them separated during shipping.
Ship the order form & clothing to us at the address on the order form. We do not have a specific carrier that we suggest you use, however we strongly suggest you use a method that includes tracking.
We will contact you once your box arrives.
Your items will then be measured to verify what size(s) work best. And each image is scanned into our system. Since each order is personal, no two are the same.
Once everything is verified, a digital proof is created and sent to you for approval. If needed, changes are able to be made at this point. Your order will not move forward until we get an approval from you.
Once approved your order goes to cutting, then sewing. Great care is taken to insure the final top matches the proof to the best of our abilities.
Once your top is done, we load it along with the backing of your choice & 100% cotton batting onto our "baby" an HQ Advante longarm quilting machine. We manually quilt it with the pattern you picked on your order form.
Your invoice may be sent at this point, especially if you have a deadline, giving you the option to pay and it be ready to put in the shipping box.
Once the quilting is finished. The binding & label are put around the edge.
You will then be emailed with final pics & an invoice. You can pay online or in person if picking up.
13. Your treasure is ready to ship home for free once payment is made. You will receive shipping confirmation and tracking via email. If you would like to add insurance or change to a different delivery method, simply let us know and we can adjust the invoice accordingly.
