I will design  special ornaments for use as  fund-raisers, commemoration or corporate gifts.   The background and inspiration to do this type of project started several years ago when I created an ornament of my grandmother's church as a fund-raiser to help keep her living in her own home.  We sold over 2000 of the ornaments, which enabled her to remain in her own house until she died at age 107.  After her death, I was able to give her church over $8000 in cash and unsold inventory to support their own fund-raising efforts.  Since then, I've had the pleasure of working with over 80 churches and dozens of other fine organizations to create their own fund-raiser or commemorative ornaments.

Normally, any design I create will be for your exclusive use.  The price of the ornament, in minimum quantities of 50, is usually between $9.50 and $12.50 apiece, depending on the complexity of the design and whether you wish to have me add stained glass to all or a portion of your order.  Within thirty days of receipt of  your request and $50 design fee (which will be applied as a discount to the first order), I will provide you with a printout of the design and an exact price quotation.  We can then modify the image to your satisfaction before you place the actual order.  I will convert the approved design to a computer program which will use a laser to cut the exact image.  

Typically, the image will be of stainless steel, which I brush to create a silvery-pewter finish.  In most cases, the ornament will be 3 inches in maximum dimension.  Ornaments will be delivered ready for gift presentation.  Each will be packaged in a white, cotton-filled gift box with a ribbon of your color choice, a descriptive insert, and a business card-sized insert which I will make for you containing your promotional text.  I recommend that you sell your ornaments about double your cost, for experience has shown that to be an acceptable price when I sell comparable ornaments at street shows.  I can deliver any quantity 30-45 days after receipt of an order and a 50% deposit, with the balance due upon receipt of the ornaments.  The deposit will apply to first orders only.  Subsequent orders will normally be billed at net 10 days.  Thanks for your interest!
