I mentioned these before... that I'm going to be offering custom-pieced photo pillows this fall... perfect for holidays, weddings, baby showers, or just because. I've got orders for a small number of them already, and I'm going to soon open it up and start taking orders. No, I don't expect to be knocked down by the numbers of you who want a pillow. But, it's the kind of gift I would give... and the kind of gift that will be treasured and loved.
So, I'm in need of a few guinea pigs... The one shown above is a prototype... and made in colors my mom wanted. It's also a looser style than I've been making... and it's envelope style, so the cover is removable.
I need to make a few more prototypes to finalize my process for taking this kind of custom order and to finalize the sizing I want to use and offer for these photo pillows.
I would like to find one or two people who would like to place an order for a custom pillow and are willing to be among the first to place an order for a photo pillow... and are willing for me to use photos of their finished photo pillow in my own marketing materials. In return for guinea-pigging, I'll make your photo pillow at a good reduced rate... around 30% off. (The photo pillows will sell at OamyOamy at Etsy for roughly what the bird art pillows are selling for.... $65-75. Currently, I know I'll be offering the rectangular size shown above and maybe one that is approximately 17" square. Colors: you'll tell me the main colors!
If you are interested in being one of the one or two to get one "first" and at a reduced rate... let me know, and I'll give you more specifics.
Curious about the photo requirements? You would need to supply a single high-resolution photo... the source file must be at least 4x6 inches, high-res. Right now, I plan to do B/W prints... if you send a color photo,I'll convert it to B/W. Photo can be emailed or sent to me on CD.
Any other questions? Let me know!
