Once you placed the order you will receive an order confirmation and an advise for a 50% prepayment.
Upon receipt of funds we will send you questionnaires asking for your wishes for your coat of arms and about your family presence and past.
You may rest assured that we treat all information sensibly and strictly confidential according to the European laws.
As the result of your answers we will prepare the first draft.
Even though usually not needed, you have the right to change the design up to 3 times.
After your final explicit consent of the design we will fulfill the report about the creation of your coat of arms as well as the framed certificate which you will receive within 2 to 4 weeks.
Coat of Arms – A link between generations
It has always been the same, it is not the custom that coats of arms are bestowed rather they are commissioned. We talk about a coat of arms commission when someone wants to create a new coat of arms for their family.
Throughout the whole commissioning process, from the first conversation about the examination and processing of your family documents and the drawing up of the coat of arms outline right through to the commission report and certificate, you will be diligently accompanied and advised by our team of experts.
This presents the heraldic composition that will become the contents of your coat of arms.
Certificate of Commission
Framed behind non-reflective glass, this gives your new tradition its own permanent place in the family.
This contains all of the information about your coat of arms and the origins and meanings of its components. Your thoughts and wishes are preserved for future generations.
