When describing your project, there's one important thing to keep in mind: the more details, the better! Details include dimensions, preferred materials, color -- anything that will help a maker visualize exactly what you're looking for.
We understand that sometimes it can be challenging to explain a complex creative idea in writing. That's why we strongly recommend adding photos or sketches to your project to help the maker understand the aesthetic you are hoping to achieve. Our makers are experts at catalyzing the creative process and will guide you through your many options. Detailed projects tend to receive interest from more makers, and much more quickly, too.
