Custom Commissioned Fezzes
We know what you are thinking,
Well here is the deal: We actually do offer our fez making skills for clubs, bands, and those special projects that we find inspiring. We have rather limited time to focus on these projects depending on the time of year and what events are on our schedule. If you have a special request that you think would inspire us to make a special fez, let us know. And no - a blank fez is not a 'custom fez' ...
If you have a club, secret society, or organization that would like unique fezzes, you may have the chance to commission the worker primates here at Fez-o-rama. The minimum order is 13 total fezzes and yes, you can vary the sizes. (you can't have a good secret society with less than 13) The cost will depend on the design but you can get an idea from our current styles, and in the past, commissioned fez prices have ranged from $65 to $235+ USD per fez, depending on the complexity of the fez and the design requirements. Art charges range from $150 to $700, again scaled to the complexity of the project.
While you're thinking about what you would like on your fez, please keep in mind a few things: (these answers would be handy to send us in the email by the way...)
- The fez style, Low or High
- Lasered? *wait, what?!?* Yes - we have a ""Laser"" that can etch within .005" and makes a nice subtle addition. (see the Mignola or Medusirena fezzes for an example)
Finally - the artwork and back-story... As Jason would say, "First, get a piece of black paper..." The artwork should fit in a 4" x 4" area but there is an '*' to that which we can chat about later. To see how an image would look - take it to 100 DPI, 8-bit, and choose 10 or fewer colors. You'll see that fine line detail and lettering don't look so good... When you're done - send the image along with the back-story and we'll chat about it to see if its a project we could get behind.
Also keep in mind it does take between two to three months to co-ordinate, test, produce, lose, make excuses, find, and ship custom commisioned fezzes - but that can all be delayed by 'real world' stuff - so if your event is in the next week, I don't think we'll be able to help and if we have a show coming up, I know we won't be able to help. (unless you have a LOT of money to help us forget the real world)
If you are a performer or have a band and are looking for creative fezzes feel free to contact us and let us know what you do. We tend to bend the rules to help art. You see, it is the creativity that we do this for, so you never know what we might consider to be a brilliant idea and if we are inspired, we just may be able to help you out.
