Thank you for visiting my page!

So far, you've seen my art and you have some questions before moving forward. I know you're looking for the best work you can get at a good price and I can assure you is that I put my heart into Steady Hand Creations, for every job that I do, big or small. That translates to quality! If you have additional questions or have specific questions related to a job that you have already received an estimate for, please e-mail me or call. Thank you!

  • How much does it cost?

    • I won't know until you send me your details in the estimate form. I will be able to give you a good idea ​from that point. I can tell you that I am not the least expensive, nor the most expensive in the area. I charge what I feel is a fair fee because I take a lot of pride in my work. That being said, I will work with you to make sure we come up with a design that meets your needs and your budget. No matter the design, you will always receive the same dedication, artistry and customer service. I offer several different services, so the pricing methods depend on the job. 

  • What areas do you work in?

    • I work all across the Oklahoma City Metro (OKC metro). I occasionally travel to areas further out. If you're not sure, just ask! :) 

  • When can you get this done?​

    • I typically work on these jobs between Thursday evening and Sunday Evening. Factors such as jobs already scheduled, weather, size of the job, distance away and timely approval of design and contract, will determine when the job can be completed. You will be given a preliminary time estimate when submitting the estimate form, but will not have a set date until the proof and contract have been approved.

  • How long does it last?​

    • It depends on how long you want the design to last. I have different paints and different prep-protocol for different types of jobs. A sign meant to be permanent will not be painted with the same paint that is meant to come off in weeks. We will have to be mindful of different factors in the planning process. Some designs will wear off within a few months, because they were in a place that they take a lot of weather abuse, and others with the EXACT same paint, have lasted multiple years with no sign of wear because they were in a protected area. A big part of the longevity depends on the weather. All of this is discussed in the planning phase to help you get the most life out of your $$$

  • How does weather affect it?

    • High humidity will affect the paints ability to dry. It will also affect the paint's ability to adhere to a window or other smooth, outdoor  surface. Weather is not really a factor for work that is done indoors, other than being able to get to the job safely if there are storms. Hot weather makes job completion difficult for the artist. During heat waves, planning the job is even more important because typically, the job must be done in VERY early hours or after the sun goes down. Safety concerns for outdoor work should be addressed to prevent delays. Working outdoor in snowy weather and weather below 50 degrees fahrenheit may cause the paint to not flow nor dry properly. The risk of slipping on black ice is a real concern in winter months. High winds will may cause ladders to tip or paint to splatter. This is why timing is important. It is advised to start the planning process early to prevent weather delays. 

  • Can you come out to the location for an estimate?​

    • Most jobs can be discussed over the phone after the preliminary information is received. If the job is big or multifaceted and within about 30-minutes from Midwest city, an in-person meeting is possible. It would have to be coordinated to take place on a Thursday to Sunday or on weekday evenings. 

  • How do we get started?

    • Whether you are a new client, or an existing client with a new job request, you will be directed to fill out the request estimate form. If this is an on-going project, such as returning to change out the design regularly, with a pre-set agreement, you will not need to fill out the form. In that case you will just contact me by e-mail or phone, as most of the information is already known. For everyone else, please fill out the estimate form. I will then reach out to you by your preferred contact method to discuss the project. I will submit the preliminary designs to you for approval. Once you approve the design and the cost, a contract is sent to you. The contract must be signed before work can begin, so it's better to plan the project with plenty of time.
