Unfortunately, no. The Keepsake necklaces cannot have engraved writing on the front OR the back. There is only room for your beautiful silhouettes to go on it.
It all depends on our season! We have two pre-orders every year. Rush season starts in October and goes until December. Slow season then goes from December until March. After that, rush season picks back up from March-June. After that, it will be slow season until we hit our Christmas preorder again in October! Turnaround times during that time are listed below with subject to change depending on our influx of orders: Slow Season: 2-3 weeks for designing & 1-2 weeks for shipping Rush Season: 3-4 weeks for designing & 2 weeks for shipping

Every silhouette head gets 1 free small revision (nose, hair, chin, mouth, eyelashes, etc). If you want to re-do more than just 1 small revision, please order a revision fee here & if you want to re-do your child’s entire silhouette, please order 2 of the revision fee’s here
We only require 1 photo and only 1 photo. For mostly all circumstances, we are only able to use 1 photo to create the entire silhouette. We are unable to combine two photos together to create it.
Nope! & that is totally expected. We have a printing supplier & an engraving supplier so anything that is printed gets shipped together & anything that is engraved gets shipped together from two different places!
If you click on the product listing, you can choose the wash/wreath combo you would like, choose if you want a print or digital, and the sizing as well! After that, the product listing photo will change to each wreath/wash combo and you can see which combination you like best 🙂
