Q: Can I customize my own design, building or house into an ARCH art piece?
A: Yes, ARCH can create a 2D art piece of your house, building, shop-house, or any subject based on your requirements. The design is not only limited to buildings but also other various subjects for example a product, a scenery, a motif, flowers, certificates, plaques and just about anything that your company may require to create a lasting memory. You can also customize the designs to suit your company’s theme or event. Feel free to drop us an email at email@example.com or simply, fill up our enquiry form HERE (link to enquiry form).
Q: Are there any other fees involved for customized orders?
A: If the quantity ordered is lower than our minimum set, we will charge a minimal fee known as Development Costs (DC) as part of the whole design process to study and research the landmark, creating the drawing file, arrangement of layers, careful selection of veneers to use in the art piece until the prototype is created. Any order quantity that fulfills the minimum numbers will not be charged the DC.
Q: Will I be required to pay the DC should I repeat my order again?
A: No, the DC is a ONE-TIME payment and will be waived the next time you re-order the same art work in the same size. However, if you re-order the same design but in a different product range or bigger/smaller sized art piece, a DC is required as the previous drawing file needs to be modified and added with more or less detailing. Again, any order quantity that fulfills the minimum numbers will not be charged the DC.

A: Production lead time for a customized order is 4 weeks upon the confirmation of order and design.
