The joy of custom orders

I recently added a ‘request a custom order’ button to my Etsy store. I did have some reservations doing this however. The main reason for my reservations are the fear that the finished product won’t meet the expectations of the customer. A fairly valid fear I suppose but one I was determined to overcome.

No sooner had I added the button and I got my first custom order. The customer (one of my favorite customers so far, I might add)  liked a bed runner I had for sale but wanted to add hearts into the equation as it was a lovely gift for her daughter towards her wedding gifts.

I was excited that it was such a special gift and I really wanted to do a good job. I was really pleased with the result and I really want to do more custom orders in the future.

With modern technology where it is now, there really is no need to have to meet customers face to face. I suppose the saying is true, a picture is worth a thousand words.

  1. That’s interesting. I’ve recently opened an Etsy shop and have been wary of going down the custom made route. As you pointed out there can be risks but also a lot of satisfaction too. Your shop looks very inviting ☺

    • Thanks Allison. Thank you for your comments on my shop. I am a longarm quilter too but would love to put a lot more items and interest in my shop. What is the name of your shop so I can visit and follow?

      Thanks, Liz.
