OUR DESIGN PROCESS
We strongly believe in collaboration and work closely with you to create a one of a kind design made just for your special occasion. Before a purchase is made, please put together a Google Map of the area you would like watercolored and mark the locations you would like highlighted. We have created a guide that gives you step by step directions to help you create the perfect map for us to use. If you would like a building, venue, icon, or motif painted for any of the marked locations, please include an image for us to reference. You can add that in the Google map you created, upload them with your order, or email them to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are emailing us the pictures, please include your name and order number. Our guide provides more instructions on how to accomplish that if you are adding them to your google map. Once you have created your google map, please provide the link when you checkout.
For more information on how our general design process works, please review our Design Process webpage.
