Tailor Made Tiles

What Do We Do?

We take any photo, graphic or artwork of yours and produce a single custom tile or a large multi-tile color mural, size is not a limitation. You can turn your images into long lasting one-of-a-kind custom art. Have an idea but don't have the image? we can locate images for you to select from. Old photograph? Touch-ups are always included in our process. Always Tailor-Made to your need and the final product application.

How Do We Do It?

Once you have determined what you want us to produce the fun (for us) begins. The image is modified using our digital technology and broken down into the individual tile size. Then the images are printed into the proper media (we call this our transfer) using either dye or ceramic pigments. The transfer is allowed to dry for anywhere from a few minutes to several hours, again dependent on the final product you want us to produce. The transfer is then placed on each tile individually by hand. The final process involves pressure, heat and time. These can vary greatly depending on the final product, some may only take a few minutes at a few hundred degrees and others are cooked at well in excess of a thousand degrees for an overnight bake.
