The vast majority of our artwork is from Martha's historical pictures. However, in recent years many schools have torn down old buildings, the ones Martha originally took pictures of and worked from as they hand-painted each and every mirror. Now schools wish to have a "new" art for their "new" building designed.
We've been inundated with new art requests. Right now we are running at a 6-8 week timeframe for new art to be finished. Art must be finished and in our files before we can begin making your product as that is what we work with when making your gift.If your school is not already in our catalog and you require new art it takes 6-8 weeks from receipt of a high resolution photo, order placement and receipt of deposit. We do not schedule new art between October 15th and December 15th. Also we do not schedule new art between April 15th and May 31st.
We know that we would not be able to finish such artwork in time for production during those two times when we have the highest demands upon the production team. If you have any questions on minimum orders required with new art, photo resolution or to place yourself in our art queue what it would require please feel free to call 800.443.8979 and speak with Sherri as she is happy to answer such questions.
