Why do I want Bobblehead Doll Proofing? We do not know the person in the photo/s that you will provide to us. And in most cases you do know them; you can assist us to make modifications in each step of the process. We can provide better products with amazing results. Second, we may miss an important feature that you can point out and allow us to modify. We only succeed if we can ensure that ours dolls are received better than expected. By doing so, we ensure the continued success of referrals and reorders.
What type of proofs do I see? It truly depends on the type of doll you order or the material you choose. During the custom bobblehead process, we can provide complexion proofs, head proofs, body proofs (if full custom is utilized) and full color completed proofs. Each step can be approved or modified while in that step. If a change is requested, we will amend the doll proof and provide a revised proof for approval. If the new proof is approved we will bake the mold in the step and move forward towards another type of proof. As approvals are received, we continue to bake and process your dolls.
Super important - Some of our production options such as 1-2 weeks or 1 week will only have internal proofing only. We make the dolls, use a internal proofer and then send the dolls. If your timeline permits, we highly suggest a 2-3 or longer time line so you can provide the approvals. This yields greater satisfaction.
Once the approval is provided in a stage, you cannot longer modify the mold. This is crucial in complexion proofs and clay head / body proofs. Once approved the item is baked. Once baked, only colors can be modified. To make a structure change on an approved head/body will result in a resculpt fee.
