Custom Made BasicsDevelopment Fee: the cost for developing your first prototypes will vary depending on the line, design complexity, materials supplied, timing, number of prototypes and revisions required. Once we know project details, we will present you with a very reasonable proposal.
Minimums: since all our products are handmade, you can have a product made to your specifications in very approachable quantities. Just one piece may be required (e.g in the case of a large 3D arpillera) or go up to few hundred (e.g. puppets or ornaments). Minimums may vary from project to project.
Lead Time: development may take from 3 to 12 weeks depending on the product complexity, artist availability and if prototypes and revisions are required. Please plan ahead with enough time to get it just right. E.g. For Christmas gifts, we suggest you start planning beggining on May - July.
Handmade Originality: expect only the best and most creative work from our artists. And although your instruccions will be followed closely, each piece will be individually handcrafted and will display slight variations to add charm to your specially hamdmade product. On the other hand, if you need an 100% EXACT replica of a design, we may suggest you find a machine made alternative somewhere else.
Pricing: will vary depending on complexity, materials and how close your idea resembles a something our artists already make. Once we know what you need, we will be happy to quote you a price. In the event your requirements are complex, we may require creating first a prototype before setting a production price.
Steps:1. Exploration: Tell us what you are looking for and with no obligation we will help you explore the possibilities. We will help you with suggestions on how to proceed and recommend the best technique or medium for your needs.
2. Proposal: If we are confident we can meet your design challenge and schedule, we will present you with a development proposal and quote.
3. Payment: A non-refundable development fee and advance deposit for the minimum quantity will be due to start your project. The rest and shipping due on delivery.
4. Design Materials: Once we receive your materials and documentation in the form of photos, graphics, sketches and/or instructions, we will start the design and preparation of visual aids and instructions for our artist(s).
5. Communication & Revisions: Lucuma Designs will coordinate between you and the artist(s) for the preparation and delivery of corresponding prototypes in a timely manner. It is our experience that normally just one revision is sufficient and very often not even needed. To assure you that your product will be just right, it is standard in our product development proposals to include at least one revision.
What we will need from you?When you are ready, just give our designers a call at 877-858-2862 or email us your idea with visual materials, sketches or photos to email@example.com and we will get back to you with a proposal.
If your idea is not yet on paper, that is ok too. We will help you develop any visuals needed. Do please keep in mind that development fees will vary depending on how much preparation is required up front, so we suggest you plan to provide as much as possible.
