A: It depends on how detailed the design is. Start to finish 10-40hrs. It depends on the piece especially if it is a recycled board it takes time to prep it for painting

Q: Can I get these as a gift for someone?
A: Of course! This is one of the best gifts to give! A custom board can have so much detail and personal meaning put into it makes such an awesome thoughtful gift.
Q: How do I pay? Can I split the total into payments?
A: To start your custom board design you pay a deposit. This ensures that you are serious about getting one. From there we move on to the design stage, this is where I make you a draft and we edit it until its exactly what you want. Full payment is required to begin the painting process. Payment plans, After-pay, and Klarna are all available through my website. I also accept credit, debit, Venmo, and PayPal.
Q: Can you draw me a draft first so I can see what it looks like?
A: Yes of course! I make a draft in photoshop of the “inspiration” for your piece. We go over this draft in detail until you are a thousand percent satisfied. I then use the draft as a reference to paint the board in my unique style. You will get photo updates from start to finish and time-lapse videos are available upon request.
Q: How do you come up with a design?
A: For custom pieces, it is a team effort between me and you! Making sure we fit all the personal details you want this piece to symbolize. My already made available designs are just things I think look cool that I like to paint lol
Q: What is the time frame how long does it take?
A: 2-8 weeks is the typical time frame. It just depends on a lot of factors such as the detail of the design, how far away it’s shipping, getting the board, how big the board is, how many orders are ahead of yours
