Do you do custom work?
Yes! We love working on custom projects.
Please visit this page
for more information.
We always welcome suggestions and new clip art ideas. If you don’t need the graphics urgently and you don’t require an exclusive license, you can send us clip art suggestions.
Why is the custom work more expensive than the pre-made clip art?
A custom work is sold only once and the pricing covers our time to make the drawings. Creating these images is a time consuming process. Therefore, the price of unique, high quality graphics, made exclusively for one client, is always higher than pre-made clip art.
