The contract

A contract is necessary to formalise the commissioning of works of art and to ensure that both parties respect the contract.

The contract includes all the details discussed, such as the subject, the size and medium of the work, the price, the payment due dates, etc.

Deadlines

Commissioned works of art generally take between 1 and 6 months to complete, depending on the size of the work and Sofia’s work schedule at the time.

Payment

The price of the artwork order is established and agreed during the initial conversation with the customer.

The price will be based on the size and complexity of the work and will be consistent with other comparable works by Sofia at the time of the sale. There are no additional charges for a commissioned work, unless changes are requested by the customer after the contract has been signed.

  • 50% of the agreed purchase price (non-refundable deposit) is paid when the order contract is signed.
    Work on the commissioned project begins once this first instalment has been paid.
  • The remaining 50% is paid on completion and before handover or delivery of the commissioned work.

  • Embroidery of initials on your material: from €50.
  • Embroidery of logo or similar on your material: from €75.
  • Embroidery of a phrase on your material: from €100.
  • Embroidery of an image or drawing: from €200.
  • Embroidered painting: from €300.

Delivery

If the customer is based in Toulouse (France), Sofia can deliver your creation in person, by appointment.

If hand delivery is not possible, arrangements will be made for the work to be professionally packaged and shipped at the customer’s expense. Insurance covering loss or damage in transit is also available.

Items delivered outside the European Union may be subject to import duties and taxes. These are invoiced at destination and are the responsibility of the person receiving the goods. Please contact your local customs office for more details before ordering if you are concerned.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Although all my works of art are unique, it is possible to draw inspiration from my previous creations for made-to-measure commissions. So if you fancy a particular creation, contact me to reproduce the piece or modify it to your taste.

I may be able to create a smaller-scale version of an existing work. Sometimes this will be possible without any major changes to the design; other times, the reduction in scale will distort the final rendering and will need to be reviewed.

This will have to be determined on a case-by-case basis.

If in the end you don’t like the final work and don’t want to keep it, you have the right to refuse the job. In this case, I keep the work and the non-refundable deposit.

Yes, I work for both French and international clients. Distance is not a constraint. However, you will need to anticipate additional delivery (and customs, if applicable) costs.
