PLEASE NOTE: The order deadline for a Custom Print to be received before December 24th within the US is December 14th for unframed prints and December 4th for framed ones. To Canada it's December 9th for unframed prints, and to the rest of the world, we can't say for sure due to the unpredictable nature of postal services, but December 1st is probably safe! See all the shipping deadlines here.
This is the busiest time of year and Jane is working very hard to make all your custom pieces! Please keep in mind they usually take 2-3 weeks to arrive right now, but they will ship for the holidays! (although it is too late to add any extra books, sorry!)
A custom print of your Ideal Bookshelf by Jane Mount.
How It Works (PLEASE READ THIS!)
1) You pick your favorites from OUR LIST OF AVAILABLE BOOKS. Click on that link to go to the list and find your books, and then list them in the first field above.
2) In the first dropdown menus above, choose the size and number of books you'd like, and whether or not you'd like us to have it framed for you, and in what color.
3) In the second field above, fill in the initials or name of the person whose Ideal Bookshelf this is (i.e., if it's for you, fill in your initials; if it's a gift for your daughter, fill in her initials, if it's for a couple you can use both, like "JM+DK"). That is just how Jane keeps track of things, and it won't appear anywhere on the print, only on the packaging, only on the packaging of unframed prints (and nowhere on framed prints).
4) In the final dropdown, choose whether you would like your books lined up horizontally in a row on a shelf (the original and default option!), or in a vertical stack. (Please note, if you have picked the 15 or 20 book option, Jane will probably have to line them up and stack some on top to get them to fit well on the page!)
Jane will make a single archival print on fine art paper of those together, compiled and arranged just for you.
PLEASE NOTE: The first image is just a placeholder to represent any and all books; please see the other images for actual examples!
Unframed custom prints usually take 1-2 weeks, depending on the queue at the time. But let us know if you have a specific deadline you're hoping to meet and we'll try our best to make it happen! If you add a book(s), that adds up to a week, and framing adds 1-2 weeks, please see below for more info!
Gift Card Info
If the print will be a gift and you would rather let the recipient pick their own favorite books, you can purchase a Gift Card for a Custom Print instead.
Size & Framing Info
Choose 8x10" (slightly smaller than a normal sheet of letter-size paper), 11x14", or 16x20", depending on the number of books you want to include. You can also choose to have the print framed in a simple, elegant, white, black, or natural wood frame, with a white mat. The 8x10" print will be framed in an 11x14" frame, the 11x14" in a 16x20" size frame, and the 16x20" in a 20x24" size frame. Framing is done by the wonderful folks at Simply Framed and usually adds 2-3 weeks to the lead time.
Jane can also make additional prints of the image (for fellow Book Club members, for instance), or a totebag so you can show off your books.
