Commissions

As well as appearing at craft fairs and having a small range of stock for sale via the website, Anachronalia also provides a bespoke service.

Do you have a character that needs a particular jacket, or are you attending a masquerade and need something extra special? Perhaps you just want an item to make the day-to-day a little bit different. Anachronalia can provide you with unique clothing and other sewn items as well as bespoke book binding projects. Perhaps you have a document you would like making into a unique book or would like a notebook to match your attire. Please look through the galleries to see examples of what is possible.

 

To make a commission please send an email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. In your email include:

  • What do you want? Please provide as complete a description as you can including details such as colour, possible fabrics, genre etc. Inspirational pictures are also welcome!
  • When do you need it for? An approximate date is OK, but this allows for planning. Commission slots can fill up quickly, but smaller commissions can sometimes be squeezed in at short notice, so it is always worth checking.

  • Do you have a set budget? Where a budget is fixed I will give you the options for what is feasible within it. Where a there is no fixed budget, a range of options can be produced allowing you to tailor your commission as you see fit. (During construction, I will advise you if there are options which could alter the price should the parametres of the commission change for any reason).

 

You will then receive a quote and we can further discuss the specifics so that you get the item you really want.

If you are enquiring about having a specific block of text bound then I will advise you on formatting and how best to send the document (electronic or in hard copy). A basic type setting service is also possible, for an additional charge.

For bespoke garments, fittings ensure a perfect fit, and Anachronalia recommends a full fitting where possible and this will be quoted along with the garment price. However, do not worry if you cannot make a fitting. It is also possible to produce bespoke garments based off remotely taken measurements. A full list of measurements required and tips on how to accurately take them will be sent.

Once a price has been agreed I will keep in contact with you through the making.
