Sometimes you just want something made especially for you rather than something from the gallery shelf or wall. And sometimes you just need that special something that fits a certain space or decor. In these situations it’s nice to be able to place a custom order. Here at Shade & Shutter we are happy to discuss your special wants and needs and let you know how we can help turn your vision into reality.

The summer months are the best time to place your custom order. During the high season (from December to April in Key West), we can get very busy and it may take a few weeks before we are able to start work on your order. When you place your order, we will give you our best estimate of the time it will take before it is ready. The estimate will take into consideration how busy we are, the number of custom orders in the queue, the size and degree of difficulty of the order, supplier lead times, etc. If you need something by a certain date, be sure to order it well ahead of time.

For ceramics pieces, Mark has made large basins for fountains, specially shaped mugs, specially sized plates and bowls, custom platters, salad sets, dinnerware sets, cream and sugar sets, planters, and other designs. He has also created special gifts and items for wedding registries.

For photographs, Sarah has made special notecards, calendars, and specially sized prints. It is possible to make aluminum prints of her photos in any size between 8”x10” and 45”x60”. The prints can also have a custom coating so that they can be displayed outside. Sarah also has a large portfolio of photographs that are not on display in the gallery; if you have a special subject in mind, you can check her and scroll through her portfolio to find the perfect photo to fit your need.

Stop by the gallery soon to see what’s new on our shelves and walls. You may find just what you want. And if you don’t, just check with Mark and Sarah about ordering that special something.
