St Cuthberts House welcomes commission work   -   single items for display, or a new greetings card made up to your own specifications.  Lots of advice & consultation on the way to ensure the finished design is just what you wanted.   Many clients comment on how much they enjoy this process.  

I usually charge an hourly rate  of £16.90 per hour (averaging in accordance with Living Wage guidelines) .   I can offer an estimate  of costs prior to commencing work.  

To give a sense  of total costs, it would be unusual for a display piece to be completed in less than a full day’s work (6 hours).   A complex piece could extend to several days.  A simple composition of medium length  - layout, scribing, a bit of decoration - is likely to lie in the mid range.  Sorry I cannot be more definite than this, but the range , length and complexity of commissions varies tremendously.  I am happy to discuss your project with you and to offer advice with no obligation to proceed, so please contact me if you are interested.

NB.  I maintain the copyright to all of my work, including commissioned work, and reserve the right to reproduce or display it for marketing or sales purposes (personal information will be removed from all material available for sale).  Thank you for respecting this.  

It is also possible to commission the design of a new greetings card.  This can be a highly interactive process, both in sharing your initial ideas, and in approving the final layout.  Apart from  the scribing and any hand-drawn elements, much of the layout work is undertaken on a desktop PC and you can get involved as much as you like.  You can also contribute personal elements (photos, drawings) which you would like including.  

Due to the flexibility of working on the computer, and the potential for display and resale from within my galleries, it is sometimes possible to keep the price of these commissions as low as £60.00 .  Several of the greetings cards already displayed were originally private commissions.  Please contact me if you are interested.
