Detailed Digital Model price structure:

Pricing is based on how many corners a building has.  (Click here for more info about counting corners.)  Certain buildings that have intricate architecture, such as very ornate facades or complicated rooflines, may require a higher cost due to the complexities of capturing and modeling such details.  The final project cost will be confirmed with the client.  We always clearly communicate our price to clients.  We hate additional and hidden fees as much as you do.  Prices are negotiable. If an order has multiple buildings, bulk discounts will apply.

25 corners or greater
$1,395

Pricing is based on how many corners a building has.  (Click here for more info about counting corners.)  Every project is unique and every paper model must be hand made.  Certain buildings that have intricate architecture, such as very ornate facades or complicated rooflines, may require a higher cost due to the complexities of capturing and modeling such details.  The final project cost will be confirmed with the client.  We always clearly communicate our price to clients.  We hate additional and hidden fees as much as you do.  Prices are negotiable. If an order has multiple buildings, bulk discounts will apply.

Note:

The completed paper model will be attached to a paper and foamcore pedastal for support.  The model and pedastal will have dimensions approximately less than 2 feet wide, 2 feet long, and 1 foot tall.  For most buildings this is approximately 1:120 scale.

We use only regular recycled office paper (usually 20 lb.) for crafting our models -- common material, uncommon use!

Turn-around time:

We are prompt in service.  But we cannot offer instant production because our products are hand crafted.  Order turnaround time depends on a number of factors, including building complexity, quality of photos/blueprints/etc., and time of year.  Anticipated project length will be discussed upon order or prior to order when you call or email us.  Given the one-of-a-kind nature of our paper models, these orders will take longer to fulfill than orders for solely digital models.

If your project is operating under a time constraint, please notify us and we'll accommodate as best as possible.  Orders are generally first come, first served. 

Special projects:

If your project needs extend beyond that provided by our Self Service Model Shop or the needs do not conform to the items listed there, contact us to discuss the work.

Model delivery:

We deliver digital models via email and paper models are shipped or delivered/picked-up in person.  Though our paper models will last a long time when handled properly, the physical stresses of shipping scare us so we package them well prior to shipping them.

We maintain an open dialogue with our clients to ensure their
utmost satisfaction, appreciation, and enjoyment of our hand crafted, one-of-a-kind models.
