_Frequently asked questions


 

HOW MUCH DO YOU CHARGE TO PAINT custom JACKETS?

Jacket prices range depending on size/complexity of design, colors used, etc. I have a starting rate and the price increases from there depending on the type of design we land on together. To reach out about pricing and having me paint your jacket, click here.

 

how long does the paint last? 

Well with proper care hopefully forever! The tighter your garment fits on you, the more of a chance there is for the paint to slightly wear because the fabric is constantly stretching (Usually I've only seen this happen when the paint is on the seams). Keep in mind the paint is on something that is constantly changing and moving. 

 
 

can i wash the jackets?

Big NO! I wouldn't recommend washing leather EVER and as for denim, spot clean around the paint. I include care sheets with every order that detail how to properly care for the garment. If you get caught in the rain, don't worry, the paint won't melt away! The paint is acrylic and self-sealing.

 

I saw this custom design I love on your website, will you paint the same thing on my garment?

No, HOWEVER we can use the design you like as a jumping point to create something more tailored to you and your style. I don't repeat custom order designs because I work with each client closely to create the finished product that you saw and loved, it is their design too! I also believe that if you are paying good money to have something hand painted, then you shouldn't be able to walk down the street and see it on somebody else.

 
 

how long will it take for you to paint my garment?

Once I receive your jacket it will usually be a 4-6 week turnaround time. When order volumes are high, it can take 6-8 weeks. I will notify you of any change to this.

You can however pay a rush order fee if you need the garment sooner. Rush order fees usually start at $100 (I need to have the garment in my hands 2 weeks in advance of when you need it or else I won't have enough time to finish and send it back to you.) 

 

do you ship internationally?

Yes, if you can get your jacket to me, I can get it back to you. There might be additional shipping fees tacked on depending on the country you're shipping from.

 
 

what kind of paint do you use?

Out of habit from my leather jackets, I use Angelus Leather Paint on denim as well. Any acrylic should work and no, I don't use fabric mediums.

 

what is your pricing for commissioned pieces?

Prices range depending on the piece, get in touch with me here and we can work it out!
