What is the process for building a custom puppet?
Every puppet begins with an idea. Tell us your project idea by sending us an email under the "Get A Quote" tab. With the information that you send to us, we can give you a quote and an estimated time frame of completion.
A sketch can be given either by the customer or the builder per the specifications of the project idea. Specifications include, the charcacter of the puppet, the overall design, the enviroment it will be used in, the way it will be performed, etc. During this stage, modifications may occur to the design to ensure that the idea can be realized into a fully functioning puppet. Once the design is agreed upon, a non-refundable down-payment of half of the total price will be required before the start of the build process. We will keep you updated throughout the process by providing you with pictures and/or videos. This includes approving the shape of the puppet, colors, and more. Once the project is completed, the final payment is due. Upon receipt of payment, your custom puppet will be shipped within 3 business days.
