Please find below a brief description of the design process which includes detail information about our design teams, timelines, proof revision phases and what to expect throughout the personalization design process:
We do want our customers to be satisfied with the purchase and in order to achieve that goal, we strongly believe that the customer should be part of every single step of the process from start to finish. The design process is a collaborative effort between you, the customer, and us, the design team.
We have 3 professional design teams around the world: Europe, Asia and South America. Depending on the pre-made design you've chosen from our extensive portfolio, we'll assign a specific design team to work on your order. All the communication must be conducted via email - this includes, but it’s not limited to, photograph submission, personalization coordination and proofing phases.
The design process takes approximately from 4 to 6 weeks to be completed plus 2-3 additional business days for delivery. Unless you purchase the Rush Design Order AddOn option or otherwise agree with your Account Manager, you should expect to have the final product delivered in approximately 7-8 weeks. Please note that this is simply an estimated timeline since the more revisions you request to be made during the proofing stages, the longer the design process will be. The above estimated timeline assumes only 1 revision request throughout the entire design process. This applies to both Standard and Rush orders.
The entire process starts about 2 to 3 business days after all the detail photographs have been submitted to us, reviewed and approved by us and we have informed you that the design process has been started. As soon as we have the first set of proofs, we will contact you via email and provide you with detail shots of the work in progress for your corresponding review and comments. These initial detail proofs are often of the head(s) in the raw form – usually wax/clay-sculpted – We will always require your review and approval in writing prior to moving to the next stage of the process. Please allow up to 8 business days from revision to revision. Please note that all facial characteristics such as smile, front and back hair style, eye and mouth shapes, cheek and jaw lines must be carefully reviewed during this initial stage of the design process.
All the revisions are completely free of charge and you can request them until you are fully satisfied. Once the proofs are approved and the next template molding, baking and painting design stages are started, any modifications will require to start the entire sculpting and painting processes over again. If that was the case, unfortunately there will be a $25 charge per bobblehead. As mentioned above, the more revisions you request to be made during the proofing stages, the longer the design process will be.
As you review the provided head proofs, please take into consideration that the nature of a bobblehead, unlike those of a figurine or bust, is that the features of the person being sculpted are exaggerated but yet keeping the likeness very obvious. On a bobblehead, the face and head features are not proportional to that of the body. By definition, it's more to the cartoonish side. If you are looking for a photographic replica of the person being sculpted, this is probably not the type of product you are looking for.
Custom body design and proofing are handled the same way as that of the head(s). Once completed, detail shots of the work in progress will be emailed to you for your corresponding review, comments and approval. As soon as the head(s) and body(ies) are fully reviewed and approved, we will cast the resin in the mold and paint the entire sculpture for the final color proofing. Once you are fully satisfied and, after the final written approval is received, we will ship your order and provide you with the shipment tracking information for your records.
