I love drawing special places, homes and businesses in our signature style and my art prints can make the perfect wedding, moving or birthday gift. 
Custom Illustrated Maps
Illustrated maps make a lovely gift for a loved one or can feature as part of custom wedding stationery. 
I can illustrate any location, just let us know any buildings/points of interest that you would like included on the map, as well as any key flora/fauna or food and drink that is famous to the area.
Below are some examples of previous illustrated maps:

How does it work?
1. Please complete the relevant order form for the style of illustration you'd like so that I can send you back a no obligation quotation. 
2. For building/home portraits or landscape illustrations, please email a high resolution photo of the building/location you would like illustrated to inkyacorndesigns@gmail.com . (If the file size is too big you can share it with us via a file sharing site like Dropbox or WeTransfer)
3. I will follow up to your order form response within one week and send you through an invoice so that you can transfer a 50% deposit before we begin work on the commission. 
4. Once I've received payment, I'll send you confirmation and will get to work on your illustration commission! 
5. I will send you through the first visuals of your illustration commission within three weeks of receiving the deposit. If you need a quick turnaround, please let me know before you order so that I can advise if this is possible or not. 
6. If you are happy with how the illustration commission looks in first visuals and don't require any changes, I'll send you the invoice for the balance payment. 
7. Once I've received the balance payment, I'll print your illustration in my studio and get it all packed up and sent out to you. 
8. If you want any changes (e.g. font change, change of colour) after seeing the first visuals, this is no problem. I allow up to 3 revisions in the price (subsequent revisions are £10 each). I'll send the new visuals to you for review as soon as we are done making the amendments.
9. Your print will be with you within 7 days of approving the proof.
Terms & Conditions
Printed goods:
Art prints will be printed on 190gsm lightly textured cotton fine art paper. I print and package everything in my studio on the Kent/East Sussex border. The prints will be packaged flat in a hard back envelope. Please note that all prints are unframed. Any frames in photos are for illustration purposes only. 
Once your order is confirmed, I'll need to take a non-refundable 50% deposit before I can begin any work on your order. Once the illustration is finalised and approved by you, we will require the balance 50% before I print your commission or send you your digital file. My preferred mode of payment is via bank transfer. I will provide the bank transfer details on the invoice and send you through a receipt once I receive payment. If paying via my Etsy store or Paypal would make you more comfortable, I can arrange this, but please note that there will be an additional fee incurred to cover Etsy/Paypal's processing fees. 
Included in the price is up to 3 revisions. To clarify, a revision is where upon receiving visuals from the Inky Acorn Designs, you, the customer, request an alteration. 
If revisions are required, you are advised to collate them and send them to Inky Acorn Designs together in one email where possible as each request received from you to make amendments to the design will count as one revision. (e.g. If you request that we amend the colour of something in the illustration and then later send a request for an additional element to be added to the design, this will count as two revisions. However, if you request both these changes at the same time, in the same email; it will only be classified as one revision. The reasoning for this is that each minor change can significantly impact different elements of the design, so if I have all the information of changes required at the same time, it will take much less time to resolve revisions than if multiple separate amendment requests are received at differing times.)
If in the unlikely event that the you are unhappy with the final design and the 3 revisions have been utilised, you have the option to request additional revisions for an additional charge of £20 per revision or to terminate the agreement. If the agreement is terminated by you, the deposit will be kept by Inky Acorn Designs and no other charges will be due and no further work will be completed by Inky Acorn Designs. You will not receive any physical or digital items or files if the agreement is terminated.
All designs will be sent by PDF to you to approve before they are sent off to print. Once you have approved the files, I cannot make any further changes to the illustration. If you do spot an error after the designs have been sent to print, I will have to receive payment for re-printing before I can send corrected version to print. 
As the illustration will be bespoke to your requirements, I am unable to offer refunds on final products unless the product is faulty (e.g. if it gets mishandled during postage) as they are custom made to order.
