Looking for a clever way to make an unforgettable statement in your next marketing campaign? Picture this: A wooden doll which opens, piece after piece like words in a sentence, to reveal a concept. Give it to your customer and the novelty of the collectible doll will make a lasting impression, and be a keepsake. Imagine getting going to a brewery and getting a a nesting can of all your favorite IPA's. The possibilities are endless.
To get started, we collect $250 as a prototype development fee for a 3 - 5pc. nesting doll, or $350 for an 7pc. doll. You can provide the artwork files, and/or convey in any manner what you'd like to see, and we'll create the fully customized nesting doll from that. We usually start by sending digital mock-ups of the design for feedback, then move to making a physical prototype. We'll send images of the prototype for approval. Delivery of the prototype is possible, but requires additional shipping costs and time.
Ideally, we'd like to receive creative artwork in either vector or raster (300 dpi) files in ether AI, PDF, TIFF or EPS format. Specifying Pantone colors should allow us to come very close to desired colors. If just sending a photo for us to draw from, a hi-res jpeg file should be fine.
We can make the doll any size, with as many or few nesting pieces as you desire. Doll design figures into the costs, too, as design vary from simple to deluxe and complex. However, here are some stock sizes and typical costs for a run of 100 units (we can fine tune the quote to your desired quantities as we hone in on your size options and understand your design concept):
3pc./4" $12 ea.
5pc./4" $17 ea.
5pc./5" $23 ea.
5pc./6" $30 ea.
7pc./6" $40 ea.
7pc./8" $60 ea.
packaged in a flannel gift pouch, which can be customized.
International air freight (or UPS delivery charges) and local customs charges would be additional.
We make them at our Russian workshop in St. Petersburg, so they are authentic. We take the hand-turned wooden dolls and paint backgrounds, apply printed artwork, blend in hand painted details as needed, and lacquer for a high-gloss sheen. The end result is a quality collectible that amuses and delights, and retains its value and use indefinitely. Everyone likes a nesting doll, especially when they are Russian quality, and nobody makes a nicer doll than Golden Cockerel.
