This listing is made with your flowers- please be prepared to mail me your flowers within 4 days (the fresher the flower the better they preserve!). Flowers older than 4 days will not be accepted.
-STEP 1: MAILING YOUR FLOWERS-
We recommend getting your flowers to us as soon as you can. As flowers age they can become brown and lose their color and shape. Fresh flowers are preferred and yield the best results. Overnight shipping is recommended if you cannot deliver them locally. Flowers older than 4 days will not be accepted.
Please keep in mind that some flowers may not arrive in usable condition the longer you wait. The older the flowers are the more likely this is to be the case. We cannot fix any wilted or damaged flowers.
STEP 2: FLOWERS DRY AND REST-
After your flowers get to us, your bouquet will be carefully disassembled and placed in a special drying agent. This part of the process can take up to three weeks. Fluffier flowers such as roses may need longer to dry.
-STEP 3: CHOOSE A LAYOUT -
Time to pick your layout! You will be presented with a few different designs to choose from.
-STEP 4: CREATION PROCESS-
Your flowers will now be encased in resin. We take special care during this step as even humidity and temperature can affect the outcome! The resin we use takes over a day to dry and needs to be poured in layers.
After the block is finished curing (an additional week) it will be packaged up safely and sent home to you.
If you choose to have your unused blooms returned to you, additional shipping will be applied.
-STEP 5: FLOWER DELIVERY-
Time to enjoy your Preserved Memories, forever.
The entire process from you mailing your flowers to receiving the finished item can be up to *two months*.
-COLORS AND DRYING-
Some colors such as reds and pinks may darken to a purple and whites may become yellow/cream as a result of the drying process. Thin and bruised flowers can become translucent in resin. This is most noticeable on white flowers.
Flowers may also appear different once placed in resin depending on translucency, thinness of the petals, or background color used.
-MADE WITH LOVE-
While great care is taken in each step of the process, our products are all hand made and may have minor imperfections such as bubbles or layer lines.
-CARING FOR YOUR PRESERVED MEMORIES-
All pieces should be kept out of heat and direct sunlight. Our resin is formulated with UV inhibitors to slow the process of color change. However, it should be expected that your piece will yellow over time.
Wipe and clean your pieces with a microfiber cloth and small amount of water.
Pieces should be handled with care just like any other custom artwork.
