For the geek who has *almost* everything, a custom art piece that commemorates their home or current city/state is sure to impress!
With the aid of a computer controlled cutting machine, recycled circuit board is cut to shape. The piece is mounted on archival mat board and framed in a classic, clean-lined black frame. The piece is set behind glass. The orientation of your custom piece will be chosen such that it best fits the shape you've selected.
Use the text box on the checkout screen to specify what you'd like. I will follow up by email to get further details and provide a proof of the art before I begin making it, to make sure you approve (if necessary). Art shown in the listing photos will not be proofed since you can already see what those look like.
-----The ordering process is complicated! If you'd rather, just send me an email with what you want and I'll set up a custom listing for you (email@example.com)!----
STEP 1: Choose Size (all sizes are in inches)
- 5x7 frame size with 4x6 mat, with hanging tabs and table stand: $78.50
- 8x10 frame size, no mat, with hanging tabs and table stand: $105
- 8x10 frame size with 5x7 mat, with hanging tabs and table stand: $105
- 11x14 frame size with 8x10 mat, with hanging tabs only: $135
- 11x14, no mat, with hanging tabs only: $175 (please note at this size, circuit boards aren't big enough to cover the area so I may need to piece together multiple boards to produce the piece. If necessary, this will be discussed in the proof).
STEP 2: Indicate number of colors in your custom art: Price is based on the number of colors in your custom art piece. White sections will be left blank (no circuit board as shown in the Colorado flag in the listing photos) or may be white-painted circuit board per request and as such, do not count as an additional color.
- Up to 2 colors is the standard custom art rate (example is Chicago flag & David Bowie) - 3-4 colors incurs a size-based charge (example is Colorado flags) - 5+ colors incur a size-based charge (example is South African Flag)
Different shades of the same "color," like bright green and dark green, count as separate colors because of the way they're processed. To create depth in a piece, I can purposefully select shades within the same color family that are different. I can do this with green (bright and dark) and blue (royal blue, cobalt blue, and dark blue), yellow (bright yellow and a dark mustard color), and brown (light brown, dark brown, and black). Refer to the color chart for a general overview of the available circuit board colors.
MISC ORDERING INFO:
If your desired subject matter has fine lines, details, or non-primary colors, I may not be able to make it in circuit board. Some designs cannot be made in smaller sizes. If you are uncertain, just get in touch with what you'd like and we'll let you know what's possible.
Exceedingly complicated designs containing many pieces (more than 20) may incur an upcharge.
If you would like something larger than what is offered here, or more than five pieces, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with size and subject details. I will respond with options and quotes (plus any wholesale discounts if applicable) promptly.
If you have a specific deadline (Christmas, Birthdays, Hanukkah, etc) PLEASE let me know!
Please keep in mind that I use recycled circuit boards- they've spent years inside electronic equipment and then were removed and tossed into waste bins. As such, they may have small scratches and imperfections owing to their previous life. _______________________________________________________________
