Custom Magnets

Renae’s Home-Made Cross-Stitched Pokémon Magnets!

Hey everybody, and welcome to my custom Pokémon magnet commissions! I’ve been cross-stitching magnets for a while now, mostly for my boyfriend, myself, and for raffle winners that are subscribed to my Youtube channel at youtube.com/renaecollects. I’ve gotten dozens of requests since from people asking if I could make magnets as commissions or as part of a trade, and because I’m not always looking for new Pokémon TCG cards, I’ve decided to open up the option of commissions to the Pokémon community!

For those of you who haven’t seen my work before, here’s a gallery of some of my completed magnets so far: https://renaecollects.wordpress.com/gallery/

The completed magnets are based on sprite art from the Pokémon video games, and are carefully edited in order to get good thread colors (I can even make your magnets an alternate color of your choice, such as shiny Pokémon!). They are stitched on a plastic canvas, and when finished I use hot glue in order to attach a small magnet to the back!

Because the magnets take anywhere from 3-5 hours to make, I can make 1-2 magnets per day. In order to make sure I don’t get overloaded with requests, I’ve created a set of guidelines that will help make sure everybody knows when to expect their magnets if you’re interested!

The rules:

1)     Select a type of magnet that you would like (regular, larger, or custom) and let me know which Pokemon that you like in a post below.

2)     I’ll send you an email with an image of how your finished pattern will look. If you’re happy with the end result, then we can move on to payment, and I can start working on your magnet!

3)     Payments can be sent via paypal to renaecollects@gmail.com. As soon as I receive your payment, I’ll let you know on my posted schedule what day I’ll begin work on your magnet! Be sure to include where you would like your magnet shipped in a message with your payment!

4)     Each week I’ll post a schedule of my next week or so and the free time that I’ll have to make magnets. As you guys request magnets to be made I’ll fill out my schedule so you guys can know if I’m free to make you something or if I’m backed up for a while. I’d love to make magnets all the time, but I’ll let you guys know in advance if I’ll be taking a break.

5)     When your magnet is complete, I’ll send you a picture of how it looks! I’ll be sending out as soon as I can afterwards!

6)     I’ll try to send out as quickly as possible, but in order to prevent constant trips to the post office, I might have to wait until the end of the week for one day to ship everything out. I’ll be sure to be honest and let you know as soon as your magnet is in the mail!

7)     If there are a lot of requests, I might have to limit orders to one magnet at a time so that everybody gets a change to receive one if they’re interested. If things are slower on my schedule though and you’d like more than one, I’d be more than willing to make you a larger order!

8)     Have fun! I hope you love your finished magnet as much as I love making them!

Types of magnets available:

Bad Pokémon List:

-While I can do most Pokémon that exist, some just don’t have very good sprite art to work from. I’ve tried checking different games for art, but these Pokémon are ones that I’ve found that won’t make very good magnets: Scyther, Articuno

I’m sorry if one of these is your favorite : (. I will constantly work to make sure there are as few Pokémon as possible on this list. So check back frequently for an updated list! Maybe your favorite Pokémon will be off the list the next time you check!

Normal (small) Size Pokémon Magnet: $7.50

-These magnets are my usual work. They’re based on the sprite art (the artwork you see in the video games) on Pokémon as you see them when you pause your game and look at your 6 Pokémon lineup. Finished, they’re a bit bigger than the size of a quarter! Stitched with thread on a plastic canvas with a magnet, they’re great to look at and even better to display for your friends!

-Larger Size Pokémon Magnet: $8.50

-These magnets are the same as the normal magnets, but are Pokémon that are a bit larger than normal, or require a great deal of colors. Completed, these ones are around the size of a half dollar or larger, such as Regigigas.

-Custom Magnet: $ ???

While you’re probably here to get a Pokémon magnet, I can do magnets from many other videogames, or even other images from Pokémon! (such as pictures of items or Pokeballs).

Because I specialize in magnets made from videogame sprite art, here’s a good website to go to find a sprite from a videogame that you’d like a custom magnet for! Email me the sprites, and I’ll make you a pattern along with a quote for how much your magnet would cost based on colors and size. http://www.spriters-resource.com/

Shipping:

Inside the US, shipping is free! International shipping is $1 extra for your full order.

Thanks for stopping by! I’m so grateful that you guys appreciate my cross-stitch art, and I hope you enjoy a custom made magnet soon!

-Renae : )

    Hey Renae! I’m unsure what size they would be, but I’d be interested in a Ho-oh and a Lugia. Plus a Celebi, but I already know what that looks like from yours, and believe it’s a regular.
