Over the past eight years, a number of large businesses and corporations have commissioned private Iron Fish collections of their own. Custom colors, custom designed shapes, signatures, sizes and stamps for marking the sculptures are a few examples of different methods involved in making the order both unique and special.
We have created customized lines of fish designs for Gorton’s Seafood, Phizer, and RBC Real Estate to name a few. These sculptures are usually given out as employee or customer appreciation gifts. With the Gorton’s Seafood project, we stamped the company name as well as the specific years slogan, “Don’t Hope, Decide”, on to every fish sculpture created, which were then given to a number of employees at a year-end company retreat. They also commissioned four framed and mounted fish sculptures using reclaimed pine and incorporating a plaque in the frame that they could present to a valued customers.
Corporate Gift Customization Process:
A little bit about the process regarding large customized corporate orders: The first step, “information finding”, is an open discussion between artist Chase Allen, and the decision maker, (the one who is ultimately in charge of placing the order). Schedule approximately 30 minutes for this initial discussion which is designed for the simple purpose of finding out the what, when, where, and why of the customers needs and to make sure that the project aligns with the overall vision and capabilities of The Iron Fish Gallery and Studio.
The second step is to come to terms on the customization of the design, scale, and timeliness of the order. Once these terms are agreed upon, we will make a “prototype”, photograph it, and email the image to the customer for formal approval. Once approved, a 50% deposit is required for the work to begin.
If the sculptures/gifts are needed for a convention in the low country of Hilton Head, Bluffton, Savannah, Charleston, Charlotte, Jacksonville, Atlanta, Daufuskie or Beaufort, a personal presentation by the artist can also be added if you are interested in an outside of the box presentation style with an outside of the box message.
All consultations regarding custom corporate gift concepts requires initial $125 fee(Visa or Mastercard) which is to be paid prior to the consultation. This fee will be credited to the final projects overall cost once the project has been approved.
