Getting Started

Colvin Dolls offers three different types of commission dolls.  First is a portrait doll made to a specific likeness, custom sculpted to resemble your photos or images of a relative  or friend.  Second is a custom order doll made to a specific likeness of a popular character from media or literature.  Third, is a re-orderable doll. This option includes dolls that are already in Colvin Dolls repertoire and can be re-made or a doll where you pick a face, hands and shoes that are already available, which most resembles the doll you wish created.   All three types of dolls are then painted, padded, dressed and wigged to complete the figure.  If you would like Sherri to look at photos or images of a figure you have in mind, to see if similar faces are already sculpted, just send your images via email to sherri@colvindolls.com. Prices are good for 90 days from quote.

The arms on Colvin Dolls figures are pose-able but in general the legs are not.  All standing figures are balanced to stand on their own.  All dolls are 1:12 scale unless otherwise stated.  A seated doll can also be made with a chair you provide or you may choose from a selection of chairs from our supplier.

Most commissions run 6 months to completion of the doll. You are updated on the commission progress through e-mail if you wish.  
Upon completion of the figure, you will receive a high resolution digital photo of the finished doll for approval before shipping. 

The Colvin Dolls requires a 50% deposit on all commissions before beginning work.  The remaining balance is due before shipping. 
All figures are shipped USPS priority mail signature confirmation and insured for the sale price. We ship worldwide.  Colvin Dolls accepts Pay Pal, Visa, American Express, Master Card, Discover and personal checks. 

Colvin Dolls guarantees 100% satisfaction with your commission or your money will be refunded minus shipping and a 15% restocking fee.  Intent to return a doll must be submitted for approval via email, written letter or phone call, within 14 days of original shipping date to the customer by Colvin Dolls.  The returned doll must be postage dated as shipped by customer within 7 days of return approval. Returned dolls must be in their original packaging and condition.  
If any parts are damaged in the shipping process your doll will be repaired, if possible, for no charge.  Please contact Sherri for further information.
