I currently accept PayPal, and Credit/Debit card payments. When you go to checkout, you may notice that it looks like the only option is to have a PayPal account. Click on the payment link and it will give you the option to either sign into your PayPal account if you have one, or to pay with a credit/debit card. Choose the latter if you do not want to set up a PayPal account, and voila, you can checkout!
Because these are custom artworks and are one-of-a-kind, they are yours once you order from me. I am happy to make any adjustments you feel necessary before I ship them to you, but all orders are considered final sale.
If you are ordering a piece of clothing/hat/shoes that will be painted on, please ensure that the size is correct before sending to me to be painted (or having me order blank shoes for you). Artwork may not be returned due to incorrect sizing.
See my Return Policy under the Shop heading for more details.
No. For the benefit of both my Clients and myself, I open up my books every 4-6 weeks for a set amount of custom works. This way, I can keep my turnaround shorter and keep wait times more manageable for everyone. Please see the countdown clock on my homepage for details on when my books will open next. You can also follow me on Instagram (@abbychristinecreations) and Facebook (Abby Christine Creations) for updates on future booking openings.
My goal is a 6-8 week turnaround from the time you order to the time you get your creation. Sometimes I get them finished in less time, but with shipping times and life, it can sometimes take longer. I will be in contact with you throughout your order experience, so you will know how far out about I am from shipping them to you!
The short answer: No. Because these are custom art pieces, they are meant to be unique to each owner. If you see something you love, let's chat about it, and we can come up with something similar to create for you!
You can find the countdown clock on the homepage of this site for an idea of when my shop will be open again. In the meantime, take a look at my price list for pricing details!
Any items of any category can be sent to me ahead of time to paint once you've booked a creation. I am able to order Vans for you at an additional cost that can be found on my price list. Because clothing is so personal and every body is different, it is preferred that the Client sends me those items to ensure that they fit before I paint them.
I am happy to paint on used pieces, however, the paint does not adhere as well to used pieces due to wear and tear, and new pieces are preferred. If you have a question about a used piece you would like painted, please send pictures and a note of what you are looking for to firstname.lastname@example.org and let's chat about it!
I am able to order Vans shoes for you for an additional cost ($55 for Adult sizes/$40 for kids). All other items (unless otherwise indicated in the shop) should be sent to me to ensure proper sizing. Please try on your clothing items before sending them to me. Items that are the wrong size will not be eligible for return.
No. Shipping within the continental US is $10. Please contact me if you are outside of the continental US for shipping fees. As long as I can send to your location via USPS, I will ship to you. If you live in the Sacramento area, I can deliver for free. If you have a questions about free delivery, email me at email@example.com
As long as I can ship USPS to you, then yes! Additional shipping costs may apply, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Absolutely not! Once you order I will be in touch with you about how many orders are in front of you and get ideas about what you would like. We can chat about it and I can either a)run with a general theme or b) send you a mock up design or an email with what I am thinking for your piece. The sky's the limit!
Your custom art is sealed with a waterproof sealer, and as long as the care instructions sent with your piece are followed, it should last for a very long time! Like my son says, "Mom, my shoes fell apart and the paint was still there!"
DO NOT PUT CLOTHING/SHOES IN THE WASHING MACHINE! While your custom artwork is technically waterproof, it is important to only wash the dirty area with your fingers. Dab your finger in warm water and mild dish soap. Then pat the area dry with a cloth. For shoe customs, it is totally fine to use a sole cleaner on the rubber parts of the sole, just not on the painted canvas.
For clothing, use the same technique listed above or dry clean.
As of now, all orders are completed through this website to make it easier on all of us! If my shop is not currently open and you have questions about pricing, see my Price List or email me at email@example.com.
This is a great question with a semi long answer, so hang in there with me. I have painted other brands of footwear in the past, including Converse, Skechers, and TOMS. And while these brands have amazing shoes, the canvas just doesn't show the vibrancy of paints as well as Vans do. This could be why Vans has such a huge custom footwear reputation. It is important to me not only that a Client like their shoes, but also that I can put my stamp of approval for the quality of the art you're getting on any Creation. To get technical, the weave of the canvas on Vans is just what it takes to make your themes come to life. For these reasons, I currently only offer Vans as an option to paint. If, however, you are passionate about a different shoe, email me (firstname.lastname@example.org), and we can chat about it. Additional fees may apply for different brands, as they tend to soak up more paint, and therefore are more costly.
(This is in no way an advertisement of nor sponsorship for Vans, I just really like their product!)
