On this page: Contact Form Frequently Asked Questions
You can get a rough idea of cost from the individual product pages. You can also use this form to request an estimate. An estimate really is a best guess. Once you decide on a tile and request an invoice, those prices are good for 30 days. There are some discounts, depending on how you decide to pay for your tiles. All of the discounts are outlined in How to Order Tile so I won't repeat them here.
I'm not a store that stocks mass-produced Morris-design tiles. I make each tile individually and I like to think that every time, I get a little better. Most orders ship within two to three weeks, but if you are time-crunched, let me know and I can see what we can do to get them to you faster. I sometimes have a limited number of overruns on hand, but the more time that has passed since they were originally made, the less likely it becomes that I can match them but if you need a very few tiles, do ask.
Possibly, depending on how many orders I have queued and the number and kind of tiles you want. If you need 300 tiles and aren't sure what you want and will need to compare sample patterns and colors and mull it over for a day or two, I can't meet that deadline. Shipping alone is 3 to 5 days. But if you know which tiles you want and have an idea how many and are ready to order tile, then probably yes.
Of course, I can. Let me know the tile name and size and I'll let you know the cost or send you an invoice. Samples are full-size tiles and can be used in your project. Samples, like all my tiles, are custom-made so are not returnable.
The fastest way to contact is to use the contact form.
I usually answer messages the same day. For phone calls, I don't answer when I'm making tile but leave a message with your number and a good time to call you back. If you don't hear from me within a day, I didn't get your message or my response is in your spam filter.
Every tile is listed by name in the Site Map, a rather long and unwieldy page but comprehensive. It is also listed in the text listing at the end of the overview page for its corresponding major section. And it will be listed in the visual gallery for that section, although not all variations, colors and sizes appear in the visual galleries. If you're not sure the major section you're interested in, or how I classified something, take a look at the catalog -- the catalog gives a very short overview of the major section, links to the corresponding overview and visual gallery, and some representative tiles.

I do! I have shipped tiles to the UK, Australia, Canada, Lithuania, New Zealand, Norway, Spain, Denmark, Sweden, Japan, Ireland, Belgium, Italy, and Brazil, as well as throughout the US.
The base price is listed on each individual product page, but there are discounts depending on how you pay or if it is the featured tile on the day you order it or commit to it. I can't tell you how much shipping is until ship time. A rough estimate is that shipping will usually be 5-15% of your tile order, depending on where you are located and the kind of tile you get. If you ask for an estimate with shipping, it is helpful if you provide your address. Shipping costs are exact charges, plus $20-25 per box up to 22 pounds, $50 per box for up to 50 pounds, which is exactly what I pay. To give you an idea, thirty (30) 6x6 ceramic tiles is about 22 pounds (10kg). More about shipping and delivery.
Maybe! If it's "I want an Arthur Rackham backsplash just like your Fairy Backsplash, except it has to be 56 x 90 and oh I have photos of the mural we're trying to replace that looks nothing like your Rackham images and they have to be modified for nudity," then no. But most reasonable requests, yes. Ask me. After we have the scope defined, custom and bespoke tiles cost the same as comparable as-listed tiles. There are no additional charges for small color changes. For more extensive changes and new designs, there are some nominal set-up costs which I discuss in How to Order Custom and Bespoke Tiles.
Quite possibly. I do offer consultations. The cost of your consultation applies to the cost of your tiles if you go on to buy tiles from me. The more you can tell me about your tastes and space, including dimensions if possible, the better my suggestions will be. I apply the cost of your consultation to your final tile order with me.
Keep going! You're almost there. The fastest way to contact me is to use this form on this page. An email will come directly to my cell phone. Voice mail notifications are actually slower.
If you'd rather, you can leave a phone message or use the contact link on our Facebook page. Please leave me your phone number and email address in your message so I can get back to you. If things proceed happily, I'll need all this information at ship time. If not, you'll still get a nice postcard in your mailbox every so often.
I guard my customer's privacy carefully. See the Privacy Statement. You don't absolutely have to provide your full name, address, and phone number, but I do flag these as casual rather than serious inquiries, since we'll need all of this if we're going to get serious about tiles.
Why minimum orders? What's that about? Before an order is ever placed, there's information gathering and a lot of back and forth on tile size and colors and sometimes photographs of the area. I may do some mockups to help in those decisions. Once an order is finalized, there's the usual overhead in setting up and moving it through the process to shipping and delivery. To mitigate all that, there is a minimum order of 9 tiles for 4.25 inch tiles, 7 tiles for 6 inch tiles, and a minimum order of 5 tiles for 8 inch tiles. If a tile benefits a charity, such as the medieval dogs and cats, there is no minimum.
All that said, we may decide together that it's a good idea for you to buy a single sample tile. Sample tiles are full-size tiles. If you are interested in a pattern or image that spans several tiles, I will make you a sample tile that shows as many colors from the overall mural as possible.
I find I am happier working with homeowners directly, where the communications have softer corners.

New Tiles are also announced on Social Media: Facebook, Pinterest, and Twitter first and then Tumblr, Google+ within a day or two. I no longer send email notifications because, quite frankly, they're spam.
By ordering tile, you're agreeing to the Terms and Conditions. They're pretty standard (my inspiration).
