Procedure tailor-made

Briefing

  • During a (digital) appointment we discuss all details, such as:
    What do you want to have captured? What is the story behind the drawing? Where’s the location?
  • If it’s nearby, I’d like to go there to see all the details, take photos and get a feel for the atmosphere.
  • If certain details are important (think: a bench in the park where you like to sit, a cat/ dog alongside, a particular flower, etc.) I can work those in.
  • It’s also possible to make a drawing based on photos. These must meet a number of requirements. Every situation is unique, I am happy to discuss the details with you.

Prices

  • Prices depend on the amount of work.
  • On average I spend between 3 – 6 hours per drawing.
  • For private purposes: A5 ca. € 150, A4 between € 250 – € 300.
  • For commercial use I’m happy to make you a customized offer. See also the B-to-B page.
  • Including frame (9 mm wide, aluminum, black).
  • Including VAT.
  • Nicely wrapped.
  • Excluding any shipping costs.
  • Delivery time approx. 2 – 3 weeks.
  • Terms and Conditions.

Assignment

  • There is only an assignment if you agree to my offer and I confirm the assignment in writing.
  • After agreeing to the offer, I will send you an invoice for the down payment of 35%.
  • The offers, prices or discounts apply for that moment. So you cannot derive any rights from it in the future.
  • As soon as I’ve received the down payment (the delivery time starts now), I’ll get started with the drawing.
  • Once the drawing has been delivered, you will receive an invoice for the remaining amount of 65%. The payment term for tailor-made drawing is 14 days.

To work

  • After receiving the deposit, I start drawing.
  • I put the drawing in a rough sketch. And work out the details in pen.
  • To give you a ‘look behind the scenes’, I take some photos of the process and send them on. (Sometimes work goes fast and you get all the photos at once, sometimes it goes in stages).
  • This is not intended for you to indicate wishes. The creative process is down to me, hence the importance of an extensive briefing at the start.
  • When the drawing is ready, you’ll receive it from me in the manner agreed in the quotation.

Terms & conditions

Intellectual property

  • After purchasing a drawing (in whatever form) it is your property.
  • However, I always (unless otherwise agreed in writing) hold the copyright to all my work. As a result, you may not copy, edit and / or create and distribute the drawings without my permission. Such as, for example, the use on folders, cards, flyers, logos and other communications or merchandise.
  • Only after written confirmation and payment, you will have the exclusive right to publish drawings as described in the written confirmation. If you want to use the drawing more often (reprint or extra material) or if you want to use the drawing in a different form than agreed in the written confirmation, please contact me at marlies@tosparkle.com to agree a fee.
  • You can share a photo of my work on the internet (e.g. social media, email to friends) by stating my name (@marliestosparkle). Would you like to use my drawing for something else or are you unsure about its use? Please contact me (marlies@tosparkle.com). Then we will discuss the options.
  • I reserve the right to list the drawings on my online portfolio and use them for promotional purposes and in / on other products.

Reflection period

Not happy

Webshop

  • Did you receive something different than you ordered? Apologies, my mistake! Please send me a photo of the delivered material by email. I can then verify this with the order. The ordered material will then be delivered at my expense.

Tailor-made

  • Tailor-made: if it’s good, during the briefing you have told me all the details that are important to you. And I’ve asked as many questions as possible to find out. Since it’s a ‘one of a kind’, drawn by hand on paper, I cannot erase or move anything.
  • In the unlikely case that something is not to your liking, let me know. Then we search together for an appropriate solution, within the ‘limits of fairness’. Not finding something ‘beautiful’ falls outside that scope. If I really made a mistake or missed an important part of the briefing, it’s a different story. Then we look for a suitable solution.

Shipment

  • Is your package damaged or has it not arrived? How very annoying! Unfortunately, I am not responsible for the services provided by local and international mail. PostNL only offers (partial) compensation if a package is sent by registered or insured mail.

The ‘store’

  • To Sparkle is run by sparkling me. Everything is handmade and processed with love and attention. My aim is to process your order asap. However, you cannot compare me to large mail order companies.

Force majeure

  • To 

    Sparkle is not liable if an agreement cannot be executed in case of force majeure.
