Can I have Arms designed? If you don’t already have a Coat of Arms, I can help you to formulate your ideas and produce a sketch to put before a recognised heraldic body. Once you have been granted Arms the sketch could then form the basis for final digital artwork.
I have Arms. What information do you need to produce artwork? Your blazon and/or an illustration.
Can I get a quote? Yes. Email your requirements or email for a telephone appointment to discuss your requirements.
How will I receive the files? On a CD
Will I see a proof before I get the CD? Yes*
In what format are the files presented? The files are saved as jpegs (or pngs if requested) except in the case of flags which are also presented in vector format to suit your flag maker.
Are the jpegs high resolution? Yes. The artwork is drawn at A3 size then converted to jpegs (or pngs), so the artwork can potentially be printed to at least A3 size without loss of detail.
*There might be a slight loss of detail in the proof because it is sent as a pdf file, but this will not be reflected in the final jpegs
Where do I start? There are various ways of laying out Family Trees so you may wish to send for my pdf showing the options in more detail. If you need a researcher I can suggest a few names.
How do you want the information? I can work from your written layout but it is best if you also supply the names etc typed up in “galley” form and sent as a document file or a pdf.
Can I include photographs? Yes -
How will I receive the artwork? I can arrange for the artwork to be printed in non fade inks on high quality paper but as a less expensive and more convenient option I can give you the file on a CD to take to your local copy shop. This way you can get multiple copies at various sizes.
Will I see a proof before I get the artwork? Yes.
Where do I start? For certificates -
then send you a quote. Once the quote is accepted (a deposit may be asked for) I shall layout your information and send a proof. Individuals names can be added to certificates.
How will I receive the artwork? When the proof is approved your certificate will be be printed on very high quality paper with non fade inks. (The manufacturer attests that the inks are light fast for 100 years.)
Where do I start? email your copy and any logos etc you wish to incorporate. Please make sure that if the text is copyright that you have permission to use it. I shall then send you a quote. Once the quote is accepted (a deposit may be asked for) I shall layout your information and send a proof.
