Watch this Video. How Custom Orders Work . . .

** 🙂 Lots to customize on the large keepsake box. On the box Front artwork, and Inside Bottom, it is a good idea to use the Photoshop template for correct margins. The Front Artwork Photoshop file has a guide that shows you where we chop the box for the lid so please be careful of putting your artwork along this line. You lose a 1/4 inch of the wood in this area when we chop your box lid off.
