I've recently been getting a lot of questions concerning trades, and I figured I'd better put my trade policy out in the open so that I don't have to explain myself every time. Not that people read things on my front page anyway
I do not accept a lot of trades. This is not because I am rude or stuck up (although I guess that's a matter of opinion), but because I am NOT a collector of merchandise. I know a lot of plush makers are also collectors, but I am not. I get my joy primarily from MAKING, not from owning. In light of this, I will accept very few trades. In general, I will only accept trades from people who I have watched for a long time and have great respect and admiration for their work.
I am very grateful that so many people like my work. Thank you.
COMMISSIONS ARE CURRENTLY CLOSED
Some General Information:
Pony prices are here: [link]
Whether commissions are open or not, please feel free to note me with questions about my plushes or pricing. That said, please read the available info first.
Commission slots open up when I finish whatever set of plushes I'm currently working on. See the list on my front page for reference.
I will generally take 5 slots at at time.
I will not note individual people when slots will be open. I will post ahead of time to let people know the time and date that slots will be open.
Slots are no longer offered on a first-come-first serve basis. My new system is this: People will have at least 24 hours to note me (a full day, which should allow those in other time zones to get some sleep, and those at work to not get screwed over - it's not cool to be trying to note me while your boss is breathing down your neck). Of the notes I get in those 24 hours, I will RANDOMLY draw enough requests to fill the number of slots I have available.
Whether you have commissioned me before or not does NOT affect whether you get a slot or not.
I wish I could make all of your ponies. I can't. I have school, and it takes top priority.
I require half or full payment (whichever you prefer) before I start a plush.
Paypal works best, but we can try and work out something else if needed.
When I have time, it takes about a full day to two days to make a plush. I will not be able to make them this fast when I'm back in school.
A price for alicorn princesses isn't listed. This is because they are VERY expensive and I won't be making them very often. Please note me if you understand how much work these things take and still want to know a price.
I'll probably have to add to this over time, but I hope this sets out some FAQ's in an easily accessible place. Yay, premium membership.
