After receiving your custom order inquiry, we will setup a quick initial meeting to go through what you are looking for, this can be done through phone/skype call. If a phone meeting doesn’t work for you, we can always contact through emails. At any point, you are welcomed to provide us with examples, ideas, colour preferences and photographs, the more the better, so we can envision your picture as much as possible! After that, we will send you an estimated quote for the custom piece based on your criteria. Once you are ready, we require 100% payment upfront since it’s a custom project.

Timeline: 2-3 days after receiving inquiry


Then, we will create a quick digital mockup – this is where we put all the ideas together and create a flat version of the 3D papercut picture! Each custom order includes one digital mockup for review, so you can make any suggestions or changes to it before we cut out your picture. Please keep in mind that if there are too many changes that require another digital mockup, additional cost will be applied. Please also note that the final papercut picture might not look 100% accurate as the digital mockup, the digital mockup is for your reference only. The Paper Lover Co. reserves the right to modify the final design as to achieve the best result.

Timeline: 1-2 weeks production time for digital mockup


Now, this is where the fun begins! After your approval for the digital mockup, we will start cutting out you picture! Occasionally, we will update you with some photos during the process. At this point, any additional changes will be at additional cost.

Timeline: 3-8 weeks production time for papercut (depends on the size of the picture)
