Design

Option 1:
Start with a Design from The Idea Library
(Includes a Free, No-Obligation Mockup)

What information will I supply to get a free, no-obligation mockup? 
The design idea you like from the Idea Library (for example Donor Wall Idea 4).
A photo of the wall where the StoryWall will go (a photo from your phone will be fine).
The wall’s dimensions (width x height) (important for accurate mockup scaling).
Your text, photos, and logo (we will probably need a vector format). Any additional branding information such as fonts, Pantone colors, etc. is helpful.
Your budget.

Why do you need to know my budget?
We understand that some people are reluctant to give a budget upfront. However, the budget drives many design and production decisions and will determine what type of display we can realistically design and manufacture. We have found that not starting with a budget is a big time waster for everyone and, as a result, we will only start a design when we agree on a budget.

What if I don’t like the mockup?
Designing a StoryWall is a give-and-take process, so we welcome suggestions on improving the mockup. But, when we say “no obligation” we mean it. So, if you decide it’s not for you, no problem. We hope to be able to help you next time.

Can I provide a photo of a design I like and get a free, no-obligation mockup?
Probably. In order to show a realistic mockup please also provide a wall photo with dimensions, branding information, and your budget. Contact us to discuss.

Can you provide images for my StoryWall?
Yes. We have access to millions of images. And you can rest easy knowing that every image we provide is high resolution and totally royalty-free.

Can we use low resolution images?
No. Because of the large scale we need high resolution images for your StoryWall (150ppi at 100% scale). However, we often use an AI image scaler to optimize marginal images. If we see a problem with any image we let you know right away.

What is the Option 1 payment schedule?
We want you to be completely comfortable working with The StoryWall Company. So, for starters, we provide a free, no-obligation mockup. Upon approval of the mockup, we provide a quote and create print-ready files for production. Only then, after approval of the print-ready files, is 50% of the quote due. The remaining balance is due prior to shipping. We accept checks, Visa, Mastercard, and American Express.

Option 2:
Custom Design

We have a unique design idea in mind. Can you help us?
Yes, we do custom. Use our ability to design and visualize, plus our Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign skills to help turn your vision into a unique dimensional reality. You put your blood, sweat, and tears into your business. Show that with a beautiful custom StoryWall that is a true representation of your vision. A custom design includes realistically scaled mockups, proofs, precise, high-quality production, and an easy-to-work-with collaboration process throughout.

What is the Option 2 Payment Schedule?
After an initial complimentary meeting to understand the scope of your project, we provide an estimate of the project cost. Upon approval, 50% of the estimate is due to start the project. The remaining balance is due prior to shipping. We accept checks, Visa, Mastercard, and American Express.

Option 3:

Can I prepare my own design files?
Yes. Join Morningstar, Jaguar, Filemaker, and TransUnion as well as a number of design, marketing, public relations firms, and advertising agencies. They trust The StoryWall Company to manufacture from their digital design files and we think you should too. This option includes rigorous file checks, proofing, precise, high-quality production, and an easy-to-work-with collaboration process throughout. See File Prep Tips >

What is the Option 3 payment schedule?
We provide a complimentary review of your digital files and a quote for the production. Upon approval, 50% of the quote is due prior to the start of production. The remaining 50% is due prior to shipping. We accept checks, Visa, Mastercard, and American Express.
