We decorate china to your requirements using your own drawings, photos or our own unique artwork.
We can work from artwork provided in most standard graphic formats (e.g. jpg,tif,pdf, eps, Illustrator etc.) or from original drawings, paintings or photographs with good definition and contrast.
All decorated items (unless gilded) are dishwasher and microwave safe.
The techniques we use for commissions ensure that our prices are competitive, and that finishes are high quality and permanent
We have been carrying out special commissions for individuals, local organisations and businesses since 2002, with orders ranging from half a dozen items up to several hundreds. We have worked with artists and crafts people to explore the use of their art in another medium. We have decorated, mugs, plates, wall plaques, vases, or complete dinner services. Our customers have included for example: -
Each order is unique, and we will work with you to find the best value option for you. Obviously, the bigger the quantities of china we buy in, the cheaper each item is, conversely single items can be more expensive. There are also set up costs for new projects, but these are shared between items, so the more items in each order the cheaper each item is. However, as a rough guide single items (after decoration) will cost about £100 each, while 100 standard items would cost less than £10. At the time of writing large orders of common standard plates or mugs would cost between£6.00 to £8.00 depending on quantity. (But remember that this is for bone china, with 265 colour photoquality decoration, not the 3 colour screen printed earthenware or stoneware, turned out by the ton, that you can buy for less!) Repeat orders no longer require the set up costs, and if they are expected we can buy materials in even more economic packages, so costs and time to delivery will hopefully be reduced.
Special note for weddings or china decorated to commemorate other events: Please remember that your decorated china may not be delivered until at least 2 months after the photographs have been sent to us. So if you wish to present china at the event, it would be a good idea to take pictures at an early dress rehearsal, or perhaps at an engagement party etc.(We are willing to attempt a faster delivery, but cannot promise to succede.)
