Custom Made PatternsLet us create a unique cross stitch pattern for you! We will turn any picture into a cross stitch pattern with the same high quality and super-fine details found in all our patterns! Any type of picture will do! Photos, drawings, pictures from the Internet etc.
You can send us the picture in an e-mail. We will create a pattern from the picture any way you like. The pattern will be delivered using fast e-mail or in printed format using snail mail.
What we can doWe will use the same technique when creating your pattern as we do when creating our stock patterns. That includes color reduction, usage of blended colors etc. The image can be altered anyway you like before we make it into a pattern. We can retouch the picture and/or only use a selection from the photo and also add special effects. Text can be added to the design. The letters in the text are made up of ordinary cross stitches just like the rest of the pattern (...and never any fractional or backstitches anywhere).
How does it all workThese are the typical steps when we create a Custom pattern:
- You send us a picture.
- If you want you can select: Size of the finished pattern, maximum number of DMC colors that should be used, any retouching/cropping of the picture we should do, special effects to add and any text to add. Or you can leave that to us and we will give you a suggestion.
- We send you a picture of a suggested pattern including information of sizes and color usage etc. and the total cost.
- When you are satisfied with the result you pay us via our ordinary channels.
- You receive the finished pattern.
PricingThe price for a custom pattern is determined by the size and the color count.
Let us know the requested stitch count or leave to us to suggest one. The larger the stitch count, the more detailed result. The stitch count also establishes the base price of the pattern:
Select the maximum number of colors in the pattern or let us suggest. In addition to the base price depending on stitch count there is an additional cost depending on color count:
We also offer picture retouching and cropping. We can add texts. We can also deliver the pattern in printed format sent by snail-mail. Let us know if you are intrested in any of these extras and we will give you an estimated total price.
