Custom paper clock dial from your photo. Order now at this introductory price.

I am excited to start a new service here at the Scrollsaw Workshop. Custom paper clock dials from your photo. The clocks you make from these dials will make wonderful gifts for weddings, anniversaries, birth of a baby and special events. I will also include patterns for two different style clocks for your custom dial. You can also use the dials on any clock pattern you already have. You may need to re-size the dial for some clocks.

Please read and understand what you will receive before you place your order:

You will receive 1 digital file by email containing four different size clock dials. If you look at the picture above you will notice that there is a square dial and a round dial. Cut the pattern depending on if you want the round or the square dial. This allows you to print as many of the dials as you need for your projects. Want to make a clock for all the grandchildren? Print what you need.

Please make sure the photo is of good enough quality to print out well. A picture straight from your digital camera will work best. Pictures that you have downloaded from facebook will likely be too small. I'll try to work with any photo you have but the results may vary.

Remember that the photo will be cropped to fit inside the circle. I will position the photo to best fit the space but some photos work better than others. Consider this when you select your photo.

I will do limited photo enhancement so please make sure the photo looks good before you upload it.

Photos will currently only be accepted from the upload form in the provided link. Eventually I hope to accept photographs by mail to be scanned in at an additional cost but that is a few days off.

You will receive links to two different style clock patterns for use with the dials.

Simply print the size dial you wish to use and use spray adhesive to attach the dial to the clock.

Apply several coats of spray acrylic to the clock to seal the dial and finish the clock.

Clocks will require a quartz clock movement to complete.

I will complete the custom paper dial as quick as possible but there may be delays based on my ability to get them complete. I just don't know yet what the demand will be so as I get further along I may be able to give better return times. Each order will contain only one photo. If you want more than one custom dial you will need to fill out an order for each photo uploaded. I will eventually allow multiple uploads per order but I need to start simple.

You will only pay after you receive the dial and are happy with it. I will send the email including the digital file along with a link to pay with your credit card. I will also include my address so you can pay with check or cash.

The price will got up on June 10 to $10 per photo.

Below are a couple examples of what you can do with these custom paper dials. Patterns for both styles of clocks will be included with your order.
