Custom Plush

One of a kind cuddles!

WHAT I WILL MAKE

  • Animals, humans, ponies, anthro characters. Interested in something unique? Please feel free to ask.

WHAT I WILL NOT MAKE

  • Anything above PG rating. No naughty/adult themes.
  • I prefer not to work on small plushies under 10″ (25cm)

PAYMENT

  • PayPal for all payments, unless you are Canadian, then bank e-transfer may be arranged.
  • I require 50% up front and the other 50% at completion before the plush is shipped to you. No exceptions.

CURRENT TURNAROUND TIME:

  • Two Months from the date down payment is received to the date plush is completed (discussion and shipping time is not included in turnaround).
  • I don’t work during holidays, so extra time may be added to completion date if a major Holiday (ex: Christmas) falls withing time frame. I will discuss with you the completion date.
  • Completion date is an estimate, not a guarantee. IF any extension is needed I will discuss it with you at the earliest possible notice. I do my best to get plushies done as quickly as possible, but as this is not currently my full time job, sometimes life can interfere.
  • If you require your plush by a deadline (for example, a birthday), please let me know at the START of the commission. A rush fee may be applied.

SHIPPING

  • Shipping depends on final plush size and location it is to be shipped, and quote will be given with quote for the plush.
  • All plush are shipped in boxes and wrapped securely and are shipped with a tracking number which will be provided once it is shipped.
  • I am NOT responsible for anything the mail system does to a package, including lost or stolen items.
  • I am NOT responsible for any import/custom taxes that arise due to your country. Please be sure to check with your local post before ordering! (usually this is only an overseas issue)

STAGES

  • Design – This is for if I need to sketch what your plush will look like before I start creating the pattern if needed. Not always necessary.
  • Prototype – I create and test the patterns, make sure everything is correct. Plushies that use patterns I already have created (like ponies) generally skip parts of this stage.
  • Final – Prototype and Pattern are complete, this is where the final plush is constructed.

REVISIONS

  • I will supply a preview for revision at the Prototype stage only. At which time, I will provide one free revision as instructed by the commissioner during this stage if required. Any further revisions will incur additional fees.

NOTES

  • I require reference pictures of the character you would like made into a plushie. I cannot work from descriptions alone.
  • I reserve the right to simplify and/or alter your design as I see fit. Not everything can translate into a plushie. Please see the following guide for information on what makes a good plush! (guide works for all plushies, not just ponies)
