YOU ASK, WE ANSWER.
Q: Why should I go with a 3D piece?
A: Impact is a big reason to go 3D. Three-dimensional sculptures, signs, logos and product replicas simply attract more attention than flat graphics and digital images.
Q: How long does it take to create a prop or sculpture?
A: Because all our giant props and sculptures are custom, timing varies a lot. We'll give you a timeline after seeing your project specifications. We make every effort to deliver what you need on schedule, but if you have a tight deadline, rush charges may apply.
Q: Can I use my sculpture or 3D sign outside?
A: Yes. Everything we make is hard-coated or fiberglassed for durability, and we may take extra steps to prep it for outdoor use. Let us know how your piece will be used and we'll custom fabricate it accordingly. Good examples of large-scale sculptures we built to be used outdoors are the life-sized Fernbank Museum dinosaurs, a stone-look lion for a bank and a rooftop dragon for a family entertainment center.
Q: How much will my prop or sculpture cost?
A: There's no one-price-fits-all answer, as many variables go into estimating the cost of custom props and other three-dimensional pieces. Things like size, quantity, materials, quality level, complexity, deadlines, coating, painting and armature requirements are all factors. Call us at 404-351-8388 or go to our estimates page and we can give you a general cost range followed by a detailed quote.
Q: What if I need a whole themed environment designed and built?
A: Then stop reading and call (404-351-8388) or email us. We live to build scenic displays, themed spaces and custom designed exhibits – no matter how large or detailed. Providing turnkey themed environments, theme props and fabrication services is our bread and butter.
Q: Do you sell ready-made props?
A: We're in the custom fabrication business, so most of our props, 3D signs and themed features are custom-made originals. We do, however, have a very limited number of props for sale that were rentals or made for a special purpose and never sold -- check them out on our Props for Sale page. Otherwise, let us know what you have in mind, including details like dimensions, how and where your 3D item will be used and your budget guidelines. We'll give you a custom price quote and go from there.
Q: What is 3D laser scanning?
A: It's the technology we use to convert a physical model like a small statue or a small part into a 3D computer model. This model is then scaled up to make your giant dragon or whatever you need to be giant! 3D scanning saves you money because we don't have to sculpt a new item from scratch. If you don't have a small model to scan, we can sculpt one for you.
Q: What kinds of companies use custom theming and sculpture?
A: We've provided product replicas, sculpture and other 3D items for a wide range of businesses including event marketing agencies, trade show companies, entertainment venues, movie studios, museums, aquariums, theme parks and restaurants. Not everyone needs full-blown custom theming, but every company can benefit from a three-dimensional sign, logo or brand icon. See our 3Dimensioneering page for great examples of how custom theming can work for you.
Q: Can you ship really big items?
A: Yes. We crate and ship 3D props, sculptures and signs for projects of all sizes all over the world.
Q: What if my object is too large to be shipped?
A: Everything can be shipped. If your custom prop or themed environment element is too large to fit in a truck, on a flatbed trailer or in an overseas container in one piece, we'll build it in sections so it can be reassembled on site.
Q: What's the best way to contact you about my project?
A: Call us at 404-351-8388. This is the fastest way to reach us and allows us to get the information we need to give you an accurate price quote. If you can, email a sketch, photo, blueprint or other rendering of what you have in mind. You can also use our estimate form to get things started. At a minimum, include your full name and phone number so we can contact you with questions.
Q: What do I need to provide to get started?
A: Get the details of your themed environment, large prop, 3D sign or other custom item ready and call us at 404-351-8388 or send us an email. We need specifications like size, how and where the pieces will be used, deadline and budget. Send photos, drawings, blueprints and any other information you have to give us a better understanding of what you're looking for. The more you tell us, the faster and more accurate our estimate will be. There's no such thing as too much detail.
Q: Do you require a deposit before you start working?
A: Yes. We require at least 50% of the project cost up front.
Q: What's 3Dimensioneering™?
A: 3Dimensioneering is our proprietary process for creating large-scale, three-dimensional pieces for custom themed environments. It combines engineering, technology, art and fabrication and ensures you get exactly what you expect on time and on budget.
Q: What if I need a really unusual three-dimensional piece?
A: Unusual is our stock-in-trade. We're the perfect source when all the other theming fabrication shops tell you it can't be done. We love to pull off miracles!
Q: How do I know you have the capabilities to build my custom item?
A: Since 2007, we have fabricated high quality, three-dimensional props, signs, logos, sculptures and themed architectural elements for top-tier clients. We deliver our work on time, every time with quality craftsmanship that exceeds clients' expectations. Visit our online gallery for examples. Just because you don't see a piece similar to what you want doesn't mean we can't create it. All of our work is custom and our talented staff and resources allow us to consistently create a wide range of sculptures and props in any size. We look forward to working with you!
