We will be more than happy to make your wedding day as special as you want it to be.
We ask you to review our Wedding Q&A section to make sure you have thought of everything before contacting us. 

If you can provide us with a picture we can provide you with a price quote. If we have to design the garment for you there is a $20 hour design fee. We can work within almost any budget, but remember the old adage - "you get what you pay for". If you are looking for a low budget wedding I recommend a Medieval style wedding, if you have a larger budget I recommend Elizabethan or pure fantasy. If your budget is tight then I also recommend purchasing items directly from our on line store. If the garments are specially made "one of a kind" items and is not one of our stock pieces then the cost will go up considerably. Specialty "one of a kind" items require much more time, fabric shopping, planning and extra special care than our stock items do, thus the added costs. 

Matching a Color Theme
If you are concerned about matching a color theme for the wedding you can choose your own fabric and mail it to us, or you could send us color samples and allow us to match them. If purchasing your own fabric is not an option, we can search here for colors and mail you samples, for an additional fee. We keep in stock only the basics in cotton (white, black, off white, royal blue, burgundy, forest green and amethyst) and some velveteens. 

Embroidered and Hand-Screened Garments
Embroidery can be on any material and just about any color. However, color and fabric selection are somewhat limited for hand-screened garments. The fabric has to be a high contrast color compared to the ink - Such as, burgundy ink on off-white fabric. The fabric has to be either a cotton or a silk. 

Time Frame
The earlier the better... We need at least six months for a specialty order. If you are ordering from stock items via this Website, 4 months would be great. Occasionally we can do a rush order from stock items, but please contact us first before ordering.  

Policies: 

Before we begin a specialty wedding order we ask you read, print and sign this policies page.

    Welcome to our Banner page!
    If you do not find the answers to your questions here, please email us.
     

    We offer stock banner. Please check the Category pages to the left. 


    Banners
    Wedding Date Banner 
    This is truly a custom, one of a kind piece. Your names, wedding date and other embroidered designs on a hanging banner. Perfect for placement at the head table during the ceremony, then hang in your home as a reminder of your wonderful day.

    The price of this banner will depend on a number of things as noted below.

      FABRIC: 
    The first choice is fabric choice. It can be made in velvet, velveteen, cotton or poly cotton in solid colors. Or if you have a fabric you'd like to use, let me know. The more expensive the fabric (like the velvets), the more expensive the banner will be. 

      FONT:
    There are two choices of Fonts for the letters - Uncial and Old English. This will not affect the cost very much.

      EMBROIDERY: 
    There are many choices for the embroidered designs for the sides, or it can be left off all together. We have a large selection of mythical animals, Celtic knots, and scroll work designs. Let me know what you are interested in, and we'll try to get you pictures. We do not currently have all images in digital form. The best and easiest way to choose embroidery for the banner would be to come see us at a show, or our showroom. The ornateness or simplicity of the embroidery design will effect the cost greatly.

      TRIM: 
    The trim shown here is what we call a Fancy metallic scroll trim. We can either use that same trim for your banner, or use a different trim, or leave off the trim all together for a lower cost banner.

      This Banner as shown: 
    The cost of the banner as you see it here is $185. It is one of our higher end banners. It is made of a dark green velvet, with detailed dragon and pegasus embroideries, fancy trim edges and hanging loops. The size of the banner is roughly 19" tall with hanging loops by 22" wide. We can do an extremely basic banner for approx. $85, on cotton twill fabric, Old English Font, no metallic trim and one small embroidery, size is approx. 18" wide by 26" long in a shield shape

      THINGS TO NOTE:
  • Please contact us via email with specifics if you are interested in this item (use the categories above to help you). Each banner will vary widely on costs. We may have questions for you before we can begin work on it.

  • Hanging rod are not available. Please specify size (length and width) of your dowel/rod before we make your banner. 

  • Due to the extreme custom nature of this item, it is not returnable. 

  • These prices may change without notice.

  • We are often asked about Heraldic family crests on the banners. Yes, we can do them, but it will greatly increase the cost of the banner. We have to digitize your image of the crest, which starts at a base fee of $100, the more ornate your crest the higher that cost will go. This is a one time fee. We will be able to put that crest on anything else that we make for you (tabbards, shirts, smaller banners,etc). Then there is the cost of stitching out the crest every time we use it for you. That cost will vary depending on the number of stitches and colors in the design. Feel free to send us a digital image of your crest with your inquiry so we can give you a cost estimate.
