Custom Feature Tiles - using a blank white tile, a digital image is added to customise your tiles.
You can use one of the images shown on this page, or your own favourite photo to make feature tiles. I have lots of other images, so if you don't see exactly what you want here, please email me and I can send you some more photos to choose from. Alternatively there are lots of fantastic images online, but we need to consider copyright in this case :-)
If you want to use your own photo, please select "Other photo" on this page, then you can either email me at dihanson [!at] bigpond.com or via the 'Contact Us' button to make sure I'll be able to work with your photo (for instance it may need to be cropped, enlarged, rotated, colours changed etc. I can do a bit of this type of work, but if your image needs major photo-shopping I would probably need to outsource that).
I can work with tile sizes up to 30cm x 30cm. If you want to use another size tile not listed in my shop, that's fine, as long as they are readily available I am happy to do this. You would need to click on 'Contact Us' to let me know what size you want, and I will add that size to the listing so you can place your order. Ceramic tiles, marble or tumbled travertine all work well with my process. I can even make your tiles as a large mural! The tiles I am offering through my shop use a plain ceramic tile as the basis for the artwork.
The process I use to customise the tiles involves a manual process to carefully place each image on the tile using a specialised photographic paper (or vinyl in some cases). The image is then either enamelled and baked or sprayed several times to fix the image and ink on the tile, and sealed using an epoxy resin to achieve a permanent UV stable, high gloss finish. This is a fairly labour-intensive and time-consuming process to produce each tile, but the result is worth it as the tiles look spectacular.
Please take into account when ordering that I hand-design and finish each tile, and each step in the process takes time. If you have tight time frames I can work with you to try and achieve that. Just place a note during the order process to let me know, and/or click on 'Contact Us' to advise, so I can identify your order.
I usually use a courier delivery service, which means delivery to your door. This charge is at cost, no additional charges added. If I can pack your order so that the courier charge is less than shown when you place your order, I will let you know and arrange with you to refund the difference :-)
There is no minimum order quantity, if you would like to order just one tile to see if they will work for you, that's quite ok, just select quantity '1' and I will make a sample tile for you at the price and shipping cost indicated for a single tile.
If you are ordering a larger quantity of tiles, I am happy to discuss a discount, just email me before you place your order.
Buyers are responsible for any customs and import taxes that may apply. I'm not responsible for delays due to customs.
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
I will only use your shipping and billing address, and contact information
