ONCE YOU'RE FULLY BOOKED, YOU'LL RECEIVE A CONFIRMATION OF YOUR BOOKING.

A FEW DAYS LATER, YOU'LL RECEIVE AN EMAIL SUMMARIZING THE DETAILS OF YOUR BOOKING.
 SAVE THIS EMAIL AS IT COMES IN HANDY LATER!

IF YOUR EVENT IS BOOKED MORE THAN A YEAR IN ADVANCE, YOU'LL RECEIVE ANOTHER CONFIRMATION OF YOUR BOOKING DURING THE FIRST WEEK OF JANUARY.

FINALLY, 10 DAYS PRIOR TO YOUR EVENT, YOU'LL RECEIVE AN EVENT DAY QUESTIONNAIRE.  THIS HELPS EVERYONE BE BETTER PREPARED FOR YOUR IMPORTANT DAY!

step FOUR: SET-UP

EACH ARTIST WILL NEED 2 CHAIRS AND A 6X6 FOOT SPACE, PREFERABLY SIDE-BY-SIDE.

IF YOUR EVENT IS OUTSIDE, YOU WILL NEED TO PROVIDE A COVERED SPOT UNDER AN AWNING OR A CANOPY TO PROTECT YOUR ARTISTS FROM SUN EXPOSURE OR RAIN.

MARIETTA COMES WITH A 16X20" EASEL SIGN AND A 33X81" RETRACTABLE BANNER (INDOORS ONLY; OPTIONAL) TO HELP PROMOTE HER LOCATION!

YOUR ARTIST WILL ARRIVE 20 MINUTES PRIOR TO START TIME.

step FIVE: YOUR EVENT!

395630148_677434891148542_2313910902009001084_n.jpg

THIS IS WHERE THE MAGIC HAPPENS! GUESTS WILL LINE UP AND WATCH AS YOUR ARTIST EFFORTLESSLY DRAWS CARICATURES WITH SKILL AND SPEED, EACH GETTING A TURN IN THE CHAIR.

MARIETTA WORKS BEST IF YOU ALLOW GUESTS TO FORM A LINE. THE LINE STAYS ENTERTAINED BY HER DRAWINGS AND MOVES QUICKLY DUE TO HER SPEED.  ADDITIONALLY, SHE MANAGES HER OWN LINE SO YOU DON'T HAVE TO!

MARIETTA AND HER ARTISTS WILL WORK DILIGENTLY TO PRODUCE AS MANY DRAWINGS AS POSSIBLE DURING THE TIMEFRAME IN THEIR OWN UNIQUE STYLE.  MARIETTA CAN DRAW 20 FACES PER HOUR FOR STANDARD CARICATURES, 50 FACES AN HOUR FOR QUICK CARICATURES, OR 10 FACES AN HOUR IN DIGITAL.

and yes, marietta can draw as many faces on the page as you like! you simply need to let her know the number of faces in advance. each person sits one at a time, trading out for the next person!

step SIX: AT THE END OF YOUR EVENT

ABOUT 30 MINUTES PRIOR TO THE END OF HER TIME, SHE WILL CLOSE HER LINE WITH A "SORRY! I'M THE LAST ONE!" SIGN SIGNALLING THAT SHE CANNOT DRAW ANY MORE PEOPLE BEYOND WHAT SHE HAS IN LINE. SHE MAY ALSO USE TICKETS OR NUMBERING WITH A WASHABLE CRAYOLA MARKER TO ENSURE THE LINE COMPLETES SMOOTHLY.

IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO EXTEND YOUR TIME, MARIETTA IS HAPPY TO DO THAT GIVEN AVAILABILITY! PLEASE LET US KNOW PRIOR TO THE 30 MINUTE MARK SO WE DON'T HAVE TO REFORM A LINE. MARIETTA CAN TAKE CASH, CARD, VENMO OR CASHAPP FOR YOUR EXTENSION.

step SEVEN: POST-EVENT

TWO DAYS AFTER YOUR EVENT, WE'LL SEND YOU A SATISFACTION QUESTIONNAIRE IN HOPES OF GETTING YOUR CANDID AND HONEST OPINION OF HOW WE DID!  PLEASE FILL THIS OUT AND LET US KNOW. WE'RE ALWAYS LOOKING FOR WAYS TO IMPROVE OUR SERVICES.

WE LIKE TO CHECK BACK IN WITH OUR CLIENTS TWO WEEKS AND 45 DAYS PAST YOUR EVENT TO ENSURE YOU'RE STILL HAPPY WITH OUR SERVICES AND TO SEE IF THERE'S ANYTHING ELSE WE CAN DO FOR YOU.

 

WE WILL NEVER SEND YOU SPAM OR PROMOTIONS.
