How do I ship my flowers to you?
Shipping the flowers is pretty simple, but needs to be done asap. So you may want to delegate this task to someone else as you may no doubt be busy with a lot of different things.
Once you book your date, an instruction sheet will be sent to you. Please feel free to contact us if you need any clarifications.
Will my flowers retain their colors?
Each flower dries differently, most whites will turn brownish while lighter colors like Yellows and pink might become a little more vibrant. Darker colors like reds, purples and blues will get even more darker. Over time, the flowers, will fade as it is a natural process. But they still will be beautiful.
Can you use air dried flowers?
Air dried flowers can be preserved in a shadowbox.
Will all my flowers be used?
Not all of the flowers in the bouquet will be used, some of them do not dry well and some of them will not arrive well. I may not be able to use them all too as it will depend on the size you choose.
The remaining flowers are normally not shipped back, but if you do mention it earlier, they will be packed up and mailed with your finished piece. Appropriate shipping charges will apply.
Will I be given a choice of the layout?
Yes a choice of 2 layouts will be sent to you for approval. The Initials will not have a layout sent, they will be created with the appropriate flowers from your bouquet.
If you live in Montreal or the surrounding area, you are free to drop off your flowers and pick up your piece after completion.
If you are living anywhere else, the shipping rate will be calculated depending on the number and size of your pieces.
Can all flowers be pressed?
Most flowers can be pressed as is. Certain dense flowers like roses, peonies etc., will be thinned down or pressed as individual petals and then put together after they dry.
I will not be pressing any dense flowers like Dahlias and Chrysanthemums, as they do not press well at all.
Certain flowers cannot be guaranteed to dry well and those will not be used also.
White Roses and anemones normally will turn brown after pressing,
Will the pressed flowers change color overtime?
Flowers are organic in nature and will change color as they are exposed to the elements and humidity. When your piece is being made, it is sprayed with a UV protectant., but they will still fade or change colors over years
The best way is to display then away from direct sunlight and away from Humidity.
Do you color enhance flowers? Do you do color touch ups?
Currently we do not offer that service. I prefer to use the flowers in their natural colors that they press in. The color enhanced once look artificial at times.
