We're not ones to break out the Christmas decorations before Halloween. But for those of you starting to think ahead to the holidays and whether Santa may be bringing your very good friend or family member a Dolan Geiman art surprise this Christmas, here's the holiday run-down.
Monday, December 22nd
This is the last day we will be shipping Christmas orders before we close down for the holidays.
Available versus Made-to-Order
Our website's Available page is continuously updated to reflect original artworks finished and ready to ship your way. These works ship within 1-3 business days. At the end of the Description, you'll notice many of these works state "Availability: ready to ship, but past version shown. Submit inquiry for photos of in-stock version". We quite often use a sample photo of a past version for our website. Each artwork is part of a limited series and each produced with a unique set of materials. Upon request, we're always happen to send photos (even video) of the in-stock version.
The Available works page reflects only a portion of the artworks available for the holidays. See the Made to Order collection page for many additional artworks which may be custom ordered including collages, our dog silhouettes, and metal wall art. Use the Inquire function to request pricing and lead time.
Deadline for Custom Orders
There is no specific cut-off date for custom orders from our Made to Order collections. Realistically, we'll probably only be able to accept a couple more large-scale orders (paper collages and faux taxidermy) so we'd love to get a conversation underway as soon as possible. We generally ask for 1-2 weeks for other collections like our dog silhouettes, metal wall sculptures, and Rescued Wood Constructions so consider December 15 a tentative deadline.
Deadline for Prints on Wood
The deadline is December 12 for all BOX PRINT reproductions on wood. See Prints, Box Print in each work's drop-down menu.
Website versus Etsy Shop
While we continue to maintain our Etsy shop, our Etsy shop is now limited to prints and original artworks under $2000. For the largest selection of original artworks, particularly collages and faux taxidermy collections, we encourage you to shop our main website, dolangeiman.com. We do still have a small selection of DG MINIs (our digital prints on wood blocks) as well as 10 x10 prints available exclusively through Etsy: visit Etsy sale section.
Stationery & Gifts
We teamed up with Birmingham-based Night Owl Paper Goods to create our first-ever line of stationery and gifts including wood and letterpress cards, notebooks, bookmarks, a 2015 calendar and holiday cards that can be personalize with your own family photo. The collection is available exclusively through nightowlpapergoods.com.
We will be participating in two holiday markets this year: (1) the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art's Holiday Art Fair November 21-23 in Madison, Wisconsin and (2) the Renegade Craft Fair's December Market December 6-7 in Chicago, Illinois. The Renegade Craft Fair's holiday market will have a new (bigger!) location this year: the Bridgeport Art Center located at 1200 W 35th Street.
