It’s inspiring to work with customers to create that special item fitted to their desires.
Clients frequently ask me about making an item in another color or color combinations. Their suggestions often generates a spark of new designs. Offering custom items is a great way to connect with your clients, expand your inventory, or refine items that are already in your shop.
The search for the right leather or lining can be arduous, but the happiness of the client, lovingly toting their custom order, is a great reward. Some customers know exactly what they want and the customizing process can be swift. Sometimes my patience is tried by whimsical clients, who change their minds after every email sent. But you get better in guessing the clients wishes and guiding them through the process.
Custom orders are like travels. Sometimes the ride is smooth, sometimes it’s bumpy, but in the end you’ll always gain new insight and a great sense of fulfillment.Quilt Kompas. Click on the images to enlarge.
