Custom Orders

Custom Orders are currently OPEN.

I can only accept a limited amount of custom order requests. Your request is JUST a request until it is approved by me; requests are NOT first come first served, they are hand-picked by me based on how well I think the idea will work, how much I like the idea, and my current order volume. Please read over the procedures & guidelines below before submitting your request!

Custom Order Procedure:

  1. READ OVER THE PROCEDURE & GUIDELINES BELOW BEFORE SUBMITTING A REQUEST! Failure to adhere to my procedure will result in your request being denied. 

  2. SERIOUS INQUIRIES ONLY. If you are not ready to complete the purchase immediately, please hold off on submitting your request. Custom orders are $40 ($30 for children’s or if you provide your own frames) plus shipping. I do not offer bulk discounts at this time.

  3. After reading over the guidelines, submit your request via e-mail with the title “Custom Order Request” to: customorders@shopbabacool.com

  4. Please include the following info in your custom order request: 

    1. Lyric/word choice, if any. Please see the "Guidelines and Tips" in the next section for help on what lyrics will work and what won't. 

    2. Desired frame style and color. See all available frames at the bottom of this page. These are the *only* frames available for custom orders and this page will be kept updated.

    3. Date needed, if needed by a specific date. There is a processing time of 1-2 weeks for custom orders (plus shipping time). I do not do rush orders.

    4. Decoration requests (such as flowers, stars, lightning bolts, etc)

    5. Colors/themes you're going for, if any.

    6. Colors/decorations you'd like me to avoid, if any.

  5.  I will respond ONLY if your idea is something that I feel I want to work with; please allow 3-5 days for my response. I receive a lot of requests and simply cannot fulfill all of them. If you do not hear back from me in a week or two, your custom order request has not been granted this time. This could be for any number of reasons, but the most likely is either it just won't work OR I’m dealing with a very high volume of requests. I would suggest taking another look at the guidelines/tips outlined below, and you can always submit your idea again in a few weeks as long as custom orders are still open. Please do not ask me why I did not accept your custom order request; all of the answers are here. 

  6. Upon approval of your request I will set up an invoice and instruct you on how to move forward. You will have 48 hours to submit your payment. Your custom order is not secured until payment is received! Failure to pay will result in your custom order slot being given to the next person in line.

  7. Communication is crucial. This is a collaboration between artist and client. Please check your e-mail frequently during the process. If I am needing information and do not receive a response within 72 hours, I may cancel and refund your custom order.

  8. Processing time for custom orders is 1-2 weeks PLUS shipping time. I do not offer rush orders. I appreciate your patience!

  9. I will always send a picture of the finished product before I ship. I like to receive the client’s approval before shipping, but if I do not receive a response within 48 hours I will go ahead and ship the item. 


Guidelines and Tips for Custom Orders:

PLEASE READ CAREFULLY BEFORE SUBMITTING YOUR IDEA! Not all ideas will work!

  1. First of all, it is important that you understand that my custom orders are a collaboration, not “design-your-own”. Please trust in my creative process and understand that while I will do everything I can to bring your vision to life I must remain true to my own artistic style and vision! Your flexibility is appreciated!

  2. Keep it short and sweet and think about how the words will be split between the lenses. Circle and heart-shaped frames typically have a maximum of 10-12 characters PER lens (characters include spaces), depending on the size of the frames. Square, cat-eye, and more angular shapes will have a much shorter maximum of 5-8 characters PER lens, again depending on size of the frames. There are certain exceptions to this rule, but if you have a long lyric in mind please consider having a few back-up choices. (As an example, "Surrender to the flow" would be split into "surrender" on one side [9 characters] and "to the flow" on the other [11 characters].)

  3. The more words, the less room for other decorations. Once the character maximum is reached there is no space left for something like a daisy or star on the side, although I can still decorate with jewels around the rims. 

  4. If you wear prescription glasses, I am happy to decorate frames that are mailed to me. I just need to see pictures of them first to make sure that it’s something I can work with. If you already have the frames please include a picture in your custom order request.

  5. To get a feel for my style and what types of decorations I have available, I recommend checking out my Instagram page: @shopbabacool. If you do not have the Instagram app you can still view it in your internet browser at: instagram.com/shopbabacool. I encourage you to include pictures of any of my past work that you feel is helpful in your request. This is also a good place to get an idea of what kinds of decorations/gems/cabochons I usually carry.

  6. If your custom order request is not accepted, remember I make soooo many fun designs **all**the**time! You are sure to find something you love! Follow me on Instagram (@shopbabacool) and Facebook (facebook.com/shopbabacool) to stay in the loop, and maybe after a while you’ll come up with some new ideas and try again. Thank you so much for appreciating my work!
