In capturing the full meaning of personalization, the bobble-head look-alike makes for a well appreciated and funny groomsmen gift. I'm not sure what it is about the bobblehead doll and it's hypnotizing effect on the common male, but there is something about them that guys love. These bobble-heads will be the centerpiece of your groomsmen desktop decoration for eternity. When having a bad day, there is nothing more soothing than looking into the soul of your own bobblehead and bobbling his head a little bit. It will be a conversation piece as well. This is an absolute can't go wrong and is one of the funniest groomsmen gifts you can give.
Once the order is placed, you will receive an Order Confirmation email along with our Photograph Submission Guidelines documentation and a brief personalization questionnaire to fill out for each of the individuals to be sculpted. This document details how and where to email all the necessary picture shots our professional designers will need to sculpt your bobblehead(s). In summary, we will need only 1 front head shot - side and back head shots are optional.
Please note that the better the quality of the photographs you submit, the better we can see the nuances of your faces and the more resemblance you will find in the face proofs of your groomsmen.
For the complete Photograph Submission Guidelines documentation, please contact us. We will be more than happy to provide you with all the information you need in order take and submit your photographs.
DESIGN & PROOFING PROCESS:
Please find below a brief description of the design process which includes detail information about design timelines, proof revision phases and what to expect throughout the personalization design process:
We do want our customers to be satisfied with the purchase and in order to achieve that goal, we strongly believe that the customer should be part of every single step of the process from start to finish. The design process is a collaborative effort between you, the customer, and us, the design team.
The entire process starts about 2 to 3 business days after all the detail photographs of your groomsmen have been submitted to us, reviewed and approved by us and we have informed you that the design process has been started. As soon as we have the first set of proofs, we will contact you via email and provide you with detail shots of the work in progress for your corresponding review and comments. These initial detail proofs are often of the head(s) in the raw form usually wax/clay-sculpted We will always require your review and approval in writing prior to moving to the next stage of the process. Please allow up to 8 business days from revision to revision. Please note that all facial characteristics such as smile, front and back hair style, eye and mouth shapes, cheek and jaw lines must be carefully reviewed during this initial stage of the design process.
All the revisions are completely free of charge and you can request them until you are fully satisfied. Once the proofs are approved and the next template molding, baking and painting design stages are started, any modifications will require to start the entire sculpting and painting processes over again. If that was the case, unfortunately there will be a $35 charge per bobblehead. As mentioned above, the more revisions you request to be made during the proofing stages, the longer the design process will be.
Custom body design and proofing are handled the same way as that of the head(s). Once completed, detail shots of the work in progress will be emailed to you for your corresponding review, comments and approval. As soon as the head(s) and body(ies) are fully reviewed and approved, we will cast the resin in the mold and paint the entire sculpture for the final color proofing. Once you are fully satisfied and, after the final written approval is received, we will ship your order of groomsmen bobbleheads.
The Standard design process takes approximately from 4 to 6 weeks to be completed plus an additional week for delivery. Unless you purchase the Rush Design Order option, you should expect to have the final product delivered in approximately 7-8 weeks. Please note that this is simply an estimated timeline since the more revisions you request to be made during the proofing stages, the longer the design process will be. The above estimated timeline assumes only 1 revision request throughout the entire design process. This applies to both Standard and Rush orders.
The size of the bobblehead is slightly variable because each one is a unique piece of art, but they generally measure between 5.5 and 7 inches in height.
Our bobbleheads are handcrafted with 100% Polyresin material. Polyresin is a resin compound generally used for statues, figurines, and decorative furniture. This material could be painted with any color you desire. If needed, the color tone could be easily adjusted at any time during the painting design phase.
