How does the custom bobblehead process work?
Choose your body from one of our stock designs or a completely custom body doll;
Describe how your custom bobbleheads will look & submit photos;
Receive proofs of the dolls & make unlimited rounds of changes;
Approve your custom bobbleheads once you are happy with your proofs;
That's it. We pack it. We ship it.
How long does the custom bobblehead process take?
Normally, it would take 4-6 weeks for the sculpture & painting work for the custom bobblehead. We will send out emails for proofing to our customers so make sure there's no delay in responding to our proofs which will definitely speed up the whole process. However, if you're in a rush, you can select faster sculpture methods and your custom bobblehead can be done and delivered to you within 1 week.

What is the difference between the pre-made body bobblehead and the fully customized head to toe bobblehead?
The pre-made body bobblehead comes with a fixed body, we cannot add any accessories to the hands of the bobblehead, can neither add any extra clothing to the body, or can neither change the body posture. However, we do can change the clothing color and shoe color, add numbers or logos to the body, and can also add small items or pets to the base. If you want to add any accessory to the hands of any pre-made body bobblehead, this is not doable and you should start with a fully customized head to toe bobblehead instead.
What is "Proofing"?
This is the interaction between the customer and the artist in which customer must give the approval on the custom made bobblehead prior to shipping. This communication process is done via email soon after the purchase of most custom bobbleheads (except those where customer selected 'Fastest' for a sculpting option).
When is there a proofing process?
Proofing is available to you on all standard body bobbleheads and fully customizable bobbleheads with 'Standard' Sculpting and 'Fast' Sculpting options. Proofing is not available on our 'Fastest' Sculpting option because of the time the proofing process adds to the production schedule. Please keep in mind that the ship date of your doll is directly affected by the amount of changes required on your bobblehead.
