Custom and Personalised Orders

Timescales are 4 to 6 weeks. Prices and examples can be found on my Commissions Page. A3 sizes usually take longer, so if you want something in a shorter period, under the 4 week time frame. Then an A5 or A4 size can usually be done, but please get in touch and I can see if it is achievable.  

If you wish to cancel the order, please contact me within 24 hours of final agreement (when given the go-ahead to add pen). Refunds or exchanges are not possible (unless faulty) as it is a personalised illustration to you.  

The process – Please message me the photos and any text you may want added to the illustration. I will always do a pencil sketch first and get the okay off you before the pen. This is to make sure it’s exactly what you want.

You will get the original illustration and there are various sizes available.

Frames are not included in the prices.

The piece is NOT to be reproduced for personal or commercial use without agreement from myself (Christopher Walster).

Please check out the commission section for further examples.

The Eco Journey

I am trying to do my bit. So I have now stopped using cellophane bags for my online orders, and instead using stripy paper bags. Please let me know what you think in a review if you purchase anything off my shop as I would love to hear your thoughts on this. With the plastic issue coming to light with how its effecting our environment and oceans, I wanted to do something to help prevent this. I do still use cellophane bags at markets, and buy products wrapped in the stuff. So I am only starting the journey with using less, and look to change my other methods.

Other things I'm doing are, my tote bags are used by 100% Organic Cotton, Tea Towels are used from 100% cotton, my prints are made with Nautilus Card which is actually a recycled card. Plus all my products are manufactured in the UK, reducing my footprint in items being transported.

Items in my shop

All the illustrations are all drawn by myself, Christopher Walster. I retain the copyright of all images and illustrations, and must not be reproduced without my explicit consent.

Wedding Items

I can do a whole array of items, from a single illustration of a wedding venue as a special keepsake, to a whole range of invites, RSVPs, table plans and info sheets. 

My usual time scale to get the full works done before the big day is 6 months. That means we can work through design ideas and have enough time to chat, edit, print and post items. I’m also aware that guests can pull out of attending or life things can happen, so time scales can be reduced, but this will be on an individual basis. Please contact me to discuss your big day!

Have you got my skylines

I may do, please have a look through my website. You can use the search bar at the top to make things quicker. If I don’t, it may just be on my to do list as people are always requesting new skylines which I’ve not done. I usually fast track some skylines if there are particular ones which are being asked for more. Otherwise, you may just have to wait sorry. But don’t worry, email me if you have any questions to see if I’m planning it soon. The other option is always a commission just for you. Head to my commission page to find out more information.

How are your illustrations drawn

I do everything using pen and ink. I always do a pencil sketch first to get all the sizing’s right, then I start with the pen. After its finished I slightly tweak things on Photoshop just to crispen things before sending things off to the printers. They are all from photographs which I’ve taken myself, or family and friends who have provided for me.

Do you print the items yourself

No I don’t as I don’t currently have the facilities. I outsource all of my printing and products but all the artwork which you see is my own.

Can I phone you

I would really appreciate it if you email me instead please. That way everything within the conversation has been recorded so both parties, (yourself and me) both know what exactly has been said and can be referred back too.

I want to stock your work, Sale or return/wholesale

Yes I do both and will love to hear from you! Just head to my stockists page to see who I’m already stocked with, or head to my wholesale page for contact details.
