A custom coat of arms is a beautiful addition to your event and home decor. The tradition of coat of arms heraldry goes back centuries, following families throughout the ages. Many families still have their designs, registered with the College of Arms in London, England.
Allison has always had a love for heraldry, stemming from her background in hand engraving, and follows many of the traditional shading practices to indicate color and other details. Wether you’re looking to clean up your original design with minor changes, create a design from scratch, or combine family coat of arms for your wedding or home, we would love to work with you to create something truly special!
Once the design is complete, the coat of arms is yours to use as you wish! It can be used on everything you can imagine, from invitations and stationery to napkins and glassware. You’ll also be able to use your design in our Shoppe for items we provide in-house, like our gift wrap, tags, and cutting boards. The possibilities are endless!
Coat of arms turn around time is typically 6 to 8 weeks, once the coat of arms details are confirmed on our calendar and the sketch process has begun. If you have a tight timeline and need a design soon, let us know and we’ll check our schedule. (A rush fee of $150 will be added to your coat of arms invoice, if rush scheduling is possible.)
Coat of Arms are not for resale or for use on products for resale.
Details in your coat of arms design are not to be separated for use without prior agreement with Allison R. Banks Designs. Coat of Arms are for personal use only and not for resale.
Please note that coat of arms pricing is subject to change upon complexity of work. Projects that require quotes, outside of pricing shown here, will be provided with confirmation of design details. During the coat of arms design process, any changes or additions will be quoted before moving forward.

THE DESIGN PROCESS
First Step: Submit our coat of arms form with your contact information and design details. Please also email any photographs or scans of your current coat of arms and/or any other sources for inspiration in your design.. Whatever points Allison in the right direction will be helpful!
Second Step: Once your information is confirmed and put on our calendar, Allison will design your coat of arms in a sketch proof and send it to you for notes. Sometimes the coat of arms is exactly what you want, but we know that sometimes changes are needed to make a design perfect. That’s why you have 2 sketch proof revisions included in the design process. (Additional sketch proofs are $50 each.)
Third Step: After a sketch is approved, Allison will design your coat of arms in ink! When finished, you will receive the artwork through email in print ready, black and white files (JPEG, PDF, and EPS files). You can then use your coat of arms on anything and everything, now and in the future!
PLEASE NOTE: Coat of arms artwork is provided in file forms that are ready for printed items and any product requiring a vector file. Designs are not ready for embroidery and must be digitized to create a stitch file for embroidery use. We recommend working with a professional embroiderer to translate your coat of arms artwork for pillows, towels, and other stitched embroidery uses. If you have your own embroidery machine, we recommend this website to digitize your coat of arms for personal use: http://advanceddigitizing.com
