New Illustrations

With our New Illustration option, we can draw new items to add into our mural scenes.  We can draw buildings, statues, or other local landmarks.  We can draw specific people, specific outfits, or people doing specific activities.  And we can draw specific types of animals.  Just send us photos---large enough photos for us to see enough detail.


We add an upcharge to bring in an illustrator(s) to draw these new items.  We add a fee of anywhere between $50 for just a couple of items, up to $250 if you give us a long list of complex items.  $150 is our usual charge, but it depends on several factors.  Call us with your request for an exact quote.


Note #1--For Single-Use Tarps and Single-Use Paper, there is also a fee for "Combining & Rearranging".  For with Wipeable Rigid and Wipeable Rollable Plastics, Combining & Rearranging is included in the base price.


Note #2--New Illustration is usually not available for Table Sheet orders--except in very limited circumstances, or very large orders.  Call for more info.

Google wanted a mural for their Take Your Child To Work Day activities.  They asked us to draw some of their buildings in the background of the design, and to include their T-Rex skeleton.  But after looking at photos, we made the design feel like it's right in the middle of their campus, with their T-Rex, robot mascots, umbrellas, and chairs in their natural positions.
