Proofing is our way to try to ensure you will be happy with the custom snow globe. All our custom snow globes include the proofing fee. However, faster orders of 1-2 weeks will waive this process and allow for internal proofing only.
Proofs allow you to become part of the custom snow globe sculpting and painting process. During the proofing of the custom snow globe clay head, body (if custom made) and painting, you will receive emails showing the progress of your custom snow globe.
If necessary, revisions can be made; a maximum of two revisions for molding and one revision for paint is allowed at no charge, additional revisions are subject to a $10.00 fee per revision over the set forth terms and we exclusively have the right to process additional modifications at no charge at our discretion.
MOLDED HEAD / BODY: Once approval is received there will be no more revisions as the custom snow globe is baked.
PAINTED / COMPLETED PROOFS: Once approved there are no more revisions allowed and the custom snow globe is sealed and processed for final shipment.
REVISIONS can and will effect delivery times, therefore multi-revisions will normally exceed your expected delivery date as we need your email authorization to proceed from step to step.
It is noted that custom snow globes are more of a caricature of the person and does not necessarily mirror 100% of that person's likeness. We stand by our skilled artisans, they have been hand sculpting and painting custom snow globes for nearly a decade, however if you expect to receive a Michelangelo or a Picasso custom snow globe this product is not for you and we strongly urge you not to purchase.
From time to time, we will provide a custom snow globe head proof that is approved by our client and than we will bake the material. By doing so, we can no longer make any changes to the custom snow globe head. When the custom snow globe completed proof comes, the photo may be at a different angle and appear different. It is the same as when approved in clay. Another item we have seen in the past, is that once color is provided our client may believe it changed the custom snow globe. Again, it is the same, however paint can cause (along with a photo flash of the camera taking the photo) the item to seem different then the clay as well. Again, once the clay was baked, it is not possible to change and the color proof is the same as the clay head.
If our client at this stage is not happy with their custom snow globe, we can offer a few suggestions:
