How It Works

Let's Chat

I'd like to hear all about your ideas, for this papercut. So we take our time to be sure I fully understand what it is you're looking for.

The Design

Then I'll draw up your design, keeping your directions in mind. Of course I'll mail the design for your approval before I start cutting.

The Papercut

After your approval of the design, I start cutting your papercut. Once it's finished I mail you a picture (or two) if you wish.


Now it's time to ship, or frame, or when we're working on a card design; time to make the papercut into the final print-ready file.
