2. How long time does it take?
With a lot of details and slow technique like oil paint, an order can take up to two months.
Depending on how long the queue is, most commissions will be completed in two to four weeks .
Time is relative. If it is really urgent, it may take a week. This at an additional cost.
3. Shipping information
Prepayment – When the customer has received a copy of the completed image, the full amount is paid in advance, including shipping. The image will be sent as soon as the transaction is registered. Shipping cost 100 – 300 sek depending on the size of the package.
Trusted customers may in some cases be able to pay afterwards.
4. These are the techniques you can choose from
The technique JNArt usually uses for caricature in colour
Graphite or Charcoal
Techniques used mostly for gray scale images
Suitable for large pictures in color
Much contrast, cartoony style
Available in many different designs, suitable for printing large copies / posters.
Typically, mixing ink with watercolor or pencil
The first steps after you send a request via the form below is that JNArt provides an exact price (quotation).
Here are the variables that determine the price:
A smaller image with fewer difficulties and attributes takes less time and becomes cheaper. Details are, for example, a background or texture on a shirt, etc.
More or fewer faces / animals – or if there is a full body or hands in the picture.
Colour takes longer than greyscale.
Some techniques take longer than others.
What influences the price most is the level of detailed. JNArt applies two levels. Do you want a photo with fewer details that are less accurate or do you want one with much details that are more accurate and photographic?
A small image, 20x30cm usually costs less than a large image like 60x80cm.
VAT is added for commercial use of the image.
Shipping and material costs are added: 100 – approximately 300 sek.
Should an order be made in less than two weeks, an additional fee may apply.
For larger assignments – over 2000kr 50% will be paid in advance.
