Included with Specialty Commissions
This service gives you the opportunity to be involved in bringing your character to life! Once your designer creates your plushie, they'll send you photos and you'll be able to provide feeback on any changes you want. Please Note: this is not a mockup of your design, it's photos of the final plushie that you can either approve or request changes to. You will get up to two rounds of changes to ensure we captured your character how you envisioned it. This is an amazing benefit for illustrators, artists and designers who have a very specific vision for their character in 3D.
Add [email protected] to your contacts to ensure delivery of your plush proofs. To avoid unncessary delays of your order, proofs not responded to within 4 days are considered approved.
Our color selector, which is only available for Specialty Commissions, gives you even more control over the design of your plush. As the artist, you get to personally choose the colors you'd like us to use for your creation.
Some folks worry about sending designs to a "big company" instead of an individual plush designer, but we are just a small team of people, and we work with amazing individual designers.
With Budsies, you get the best of both worlds: individual artistic attention with great customer service.
We absolutely love turning your designs and characters into huggable 3D plushies. As the artists, you've created something special and unique to who you are, and we are happy we get to help bring that creation to life. We want to make sure you have the best experience with us as possible, so here are a few tips that will help you get the best results possible.
1. Ref sheets. We don't require ref sheets, but clear, flat color ref sheets do help our designers see all the important aspects of your character.
2. Don't skimp on the description. Be sure to describe every single detail you want on your plush. Even if it's present on the ref sheet, it’s helpful to reinforce the most important aspects of your design.
3. Don't be afraid to ask questions. Our team is more than happy to help answer your questions. We want you to have a great experience!
4. Shades of color & designs with gradients may not be exactly matched. While we have an array of colors, certain characters with a lot of different shades can be difficult to match precisely. Our designers have to work within plush limitations, so solid colors work best.
