Samples of Our Work
You may order paper samples or actual samples onyour specific material. We know that seeing our product is important if you are investing a large amount of money. It is not automatic. Custom art work and pattern modifications are billed at the current list price per hour as show on any of our liturgical art pages. See above. If free customization charges are offered and are contingent on your placing an order and you change your mind or decrease your quantity, expect the indicated charges to be billed to you (and no longer free) or your non-refundable deposit for customizations to be indeed, non-refundable. As we create, we will tell you the hours that are incurred at each step of your requested modifications and/or customizations. If you change your mind about the quantity you were considering ordering and lower the quantity, note that any discount offered will probably be decreased.
Creating Art by Committee
Note that creating art by committee is very difficult as everyone has their own perception of what is beautiful and/or appropriate for their church or organization. Often art by committee results in charges for multiple changes. We recommend that you receive input from your committee but that only one person decide on changes that will be requested, otherwise customizations can get expensive.
Funding your project/order:
If you are considering a large number of banners and/or any type of customization please know that as you customize the price will probably increase. If a price has been quoted and you change your mind about the end product, you should expect the price to increase.
If you are considering buying a large number of banners please confirm first that you have the budget for them and if you make changes, please check with your budget committee to see if you have the funds to cover changes and customizations. Changes and customizations cost us money and though often we make small changes for free, this is not to be considered the norm. Even our listed free changes for logos and wording, cost us money, though we gladly do these two changes for free unless there are excessive requests.
About our Guarantee:
We guarantee our work to be free from defects in materials and workmanship. Most of our items are considered fine art pieces and thus there may be brush strokes and other indications of the art work. We also state that you either like the item in advance or you don't pay. That means that we will set something up for you, including custom art and if you don't like the preview (digital), you won't pay for the hours of set up time. If you tell us to proceed with changes in design, color or changing concepts altoghther, that is your approval to proceed and you will be billed for custom hours unless we so incicate otherwise in writing.
Suggestions for poles to hold up your banner:
There are two thing you could do:
1) Buy ready made. I did a Google search for banner poles and found this: http://www.praisebanners.com/banner-wall-mount-bracket.html Purchase a fairly large wooden dowel for the bottom pocket. Have it cut so the ends are hidden. Other than this, there just isn't much out on the market that is ready made that I could find.
2) Go to a hardware stole and purchase an appropriate sized dowel that won't sag with weight. Buy an extra for the bottom pocket to add weight to help keep the banner straight over time. (Over time banners can curl so we recommend a fairly substantial weight in the bottom.) Select hanging hooks. Hooks can be simple or elaborate. Often you can find a variety in the curtain hardware section of a store like Home Depot or Lowes If you purchase dowels, you will need to cut them to the proper length so that the top one has room for hooks on the end and the bottom one is cut so the ends are hidden. When I did this for some curtains a while back I also purchased end caps so there wasn't just a flat dowel end exposed. Dowels, end caps and hooks can be painted to match.
Just a couple of ideas.

Banner Prices, Terms and Conditions
Read about your banner below. The details are important. It isn't the standard yada, yada, yada. Call us at 775-424-2548 to discuss your order or custom needs before placing your order. The owner is Julie Jones and you will probably be greeted by her. Our email is AFTSJulieRJones@gmail.com. If you have a custom request, a graphically created preview will either be sent to you via e-mail or placed on a private preview page. (There are no up-front charges until you approve your first draft or proceed with changes or unless you order specific samples. When you approve your draft or proceed with changes, you will be responsible for custom charges and at that point we may require a deposit. Should you choose not to purchase your banner those are the charges you will be responsible for. As we proceed you will be advised of the custom charges as we make changes or create.) Usually we can accommodate rushes but you may not have time for sample materials to be received. We always recommend that you request a sample of the material you are considering. For banners, we do our absolute best on color matching but large format banners (wider than 2' and on materials other than heavy stock paper) are printed by our printing partner in another state. See below. They do a superior job but they are not standing next to your pews, sanctuary walls or stained glass windows. We encourage large, high quality photos for color matching banners.
In general, for custom art and colors, you are not committed to purchase a printed banner until you you actually purchase the banner and the drafts are approved. When we start a custom creation for you, you have no commitment unless you direct us to proceed further from the initial draft with refinements, changes, a new direction or a purchase. Once you tell us to proceed you agree pay for the custom time. Once approved and printed, the custom banner is not returnable or refundable except for defects in materials or workmanship. Custom changes will be billed at $35/hr. Your final product price may change if you have a change in materials. Simple or small changes may be free. You will be advised if charges are waived. There is no charge for the addition of church/denomination logos or wording changes. Your are responsible for correct spelling on your preview.

Unless you specify otherwise, the above is how banners are supplied.
2) Printed commercially ANY SIZE on a variety of fabric, vinyl or paper in a variety of sizes.
Commercially printed banners are available at printing cost (plus a 5% markup) plus $47.00/banner. (We do this to keep YOUR prices down.) Custom changes or custom banners are $35/hr. (Explore this site for ideas or send us something you want placed on the banner.) Many changes to existing banners can be completed in about 1 hour and sometimes less! Custom art may take longer. The commercial printer we use is ePingo at http://www.ePingo.com/banners.asp. ePingo has a wide variety of materials and fabric on which banners are printed. Just click on their URL to explore what is available. We receive rave reviews of their work. Please select your banner material from the ePingo link above. Available banner material changes periodically. Please review what is currently available.
If the banner material is a concern or of a high priority we highly suggest that you allow enough time to order material samples from ePingo or order a small sample banner. Additionally banners with pole pockets will come with grommets placed at the ends of the pockets to reinforce them. If you decline the grommets, it will be noted as they are recommended. We also recommend a bottom pole pocket and that weight be added to the pocket to help in keeping the banners straight over time. (Printed banners tend to curl over time and the additional weight will help in minimizing the curl.) Banners will ship directly to you from ePingo. All jobs are processed through Art from the Soul unless otherwise indicated.
Wording changes on Banners are usually free.
Our banners are one of the highlights of your celebration. We guarantee that they meet the description as stated above and herein. If they are not as ordered and as described herein, your money, including shipping, will be refunded (see exclusions herein) OR we will repair, correct or remake your banner if possible at our discretion, and pay for the shipping back to you. This includes defects in materials and workmanship. Please remember that on polyester banners that there is a fire retardant coating as is required by law in the stateof California where all of the larger (2' and wider) banners are printed and where our banners that are made out of anything not on our archival paper. Returning a banner for items already described herein are considered frivolous returns--because we tell you about this ahead of time. (If you return something for anything we've told you about ahead of time, it is considered a frivilous return.) Expedite charges, rush shipping and custom art time/fees are not refundable. The basic banner price and standard shipping is refundable for defects in materials or workmanship. (Your banner may be remade if there is a defect. Always allow enough time for ordering including remakes. Should the shipper damage your item, this may take 10 day or longer.) Your refund will be processed when the banner is received and examined. Banners, if being returned for a defect in materials and workmanship must be returned in the same or similar container in which they were shipped or you may invalidate your return. You MUST immediately call us the same day at 775-424-2548 if an item is damaged in shipment. Refunds for damaged items only cover the cost of the item, not the shipping and insurance cost per the United States Post Office. Delays in advising us of a damaged shipment may invalidate a refund depending on the carrier's advisory requirements.
Frivolous returns and banners damaged by the customer will not be refunded and you will have to pay to have the stole re-shipped back to you. Note that we create our own art and the appearance of brush strokes and similar creative processes in the printed material is a part of any fine art piece. Shadows may be used to have text or objects stand out and are intentional and are not a reason for return. Banners are meant to be viewed from modest distances-not from a few inches away.
About Colors on the Web:
The colors that you see on the artwork on this site can vary from monitor to monitor, in hue and value. The color of artwork on mobile devices such as cell phone can look REALLY different. We attempt to represent the art as close as possible to the actual pieces. If color matching is desired, we recommend that you request and approve a paper sample (legal envelope sized) or purchase a small banner as custom banners are not returnable/refundable except for defects in material and workmanship. $5 and any express shipping charges will be billed for each paper sample requested.
Overseas Banner Orders:
If you are overseas, we will be happy to send the artwork fully set up to your local printer upon receiving their printing requirements. This makes your shipping free.
Please call for a quotation on custom sizes. There is an 8% markup on all international orders to cover processing fees. Is there an Art from the Soul image you would like as a banner? Just give us a call at 775-424-2548.
