Custom Feature Tiles - using a blank white tile, I add a digital image, and progressively build up layers of enamel or varnish, fixative spray and final resin coatings.
You can use one of the images shown, or use your own favourite photo to make feature tiles. If you are looking for a particular subject for your tiles let me know, I have lots of images but due to system constraints I can only show a limited number per theme.
If you want to use your own photo, can you please either select "Other photo" on this page or use the item "Custom Feature Tiles" in my shop. You'll need to contact me via email at dihanson [!at] bigpond.com to send me your photo as a high resolution file for printing.
My process works on most tile surfaces. I'm currently working with subway tiles (10cm x 20cm) but I can also work with other sizes up to 30cm x 30cm. If you want to use another size tile not listed here, 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. The tiles I am offering through my shop use a standard ceramic tile as the basis for the artwork.
The process I use to customise the tiles involves a manual process to 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, paint and finish each tile, and each step in the process takes time. If you have tight time frames I will definitely 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 and we can discuss your requirements :-)
I use a courier 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.

I will only use your shipping and billing address, and contact information
