    Graphic Fee

    Please do NOT purchase this unless we have discussed prior. 

    This is a fee for me to create an engravable graphic from a signature or drawing that you have provided that needs to be cleaned up/extracted/traced etc. in order for me to create something that will be able to be engraved. 

    Please note that a lot of this work will be done manually, pixel by pixel by hand. I will do my absolute best to match your signature/drawing as closely as possible. 

    Please upload the graphic that you would like me to work on for you and I will send it back to you. Please wait for me to send it to you to approve before ordering the actual necklace! 

    Terms: Please note that while the signature/drawing file is yours, the resulting cleaned up graphic that I send you may NOT be used outside of ordering at Mint & Birch. This fee is for the service, but not for the graphic as a product. If you are looking specifically for graphic and digital work, there will be a different fee for ownership of the graphic and file I create.If you are specifically needing graphic design work, I can provide a quote. By purchasing this, you agree to respect my time and work. 

    You will get 2 MINOR adjustment (at our discretion) with this. Each additional change will be $5 USD.

    Each Mint & Birch piece starts out as sheets of precious metal. Each bar, disc, oval, heart is cut and polished by hand in my studio. Each piece is cut lovingly by me one order at a time.

    Yes! You can wear these pieces every day without worry of flaking, peeling or tarnish!

    I personally file, drill and polish each one with my own hands. I only use ethically sourced gold fill and solid sterling silver sheets sourced from North American mills. Using hand tools allows me to have a greater degree of control and precision over the piece to ensure that edges are beautifully smooth and that no damage occurs when finishing the piece into shiny necklaces! I do not use a tumbler, in which several pieces are put into a rotating canister with abrasives or steel pins to quickly smooth batches of pieces, causing micro scratches and unnecessary wear. Instead, I believe in good old-fashioned hard work done with elbow grease! Your bar necklace will not flake and you can wear it daily! The combination of high quality materials and my unique process of finishing the bars results in pieces that will last for years to come. I strive to offer my best, offering customizations not found elsewhere, such as the original hand lettered pieces.
