Here at Hello Violaceous we love to make your ideas come to life. You can come to us with a basic idea or with an idea you have drawn yourself. If you have a basic idea we will draw up 3 ideas for you to pick from. Please remember this does cost our time to do this and there will be charged £10 for the inital ideas. We can offer advice on colour combination and trimming detail. Once you decide on a design you will be given a price for the design, you will then be sent the final idea. Once approved you will be invoiced for the order (this will be minus the £10 fee at the start).
