Creation of your coat of arms and economic budget

The creation of your coat of arms admits many possibilities, being the basic one the creation of the blazon, that is, its heraldic description. From there,

  • you can choose all the ornament of your shield, for example, whether or not it has a crest, whether or not it has a mantling, that your arms have supporters, or tenants, moreover
  • you can choose your own complements, for example, wish to have a flag according to your coat of arms, create your own badge, your personal seal, your ex libris, etc.

My service as a heraldic artist covers all of the above, from initial conception to final design and delivery, both in digital support and through a printed heraldic document which contains all the pieces created for you in a personalized way and even other tangible complements, such as, for framing or sealing.

This is why the cost of my services can be adjusted accotding to your requests, from the most economical which is the creation of your arms and its digital delivery by electronic means, to the additional creation of all the ornament and accessories included the delivery of the heraldic catalog high quality printed:

  • the most economical services start at 275 € (ideation and creation of the basic coat of arms with its motto), and
  • the most ambitious budgets can exceed 875 € (ideation and creation of a coat of arms with 4 different quarters, motto, helm, wreath, mantling diapered, crest over the wreath, 2 supporters, seal, ex libris and heraldic catalog).

You can ask me, without any commitment, a personalized budget in which the final result is specified, it is economically quantified, the delivery deadline is estimated, the form of payment is fixed and the applicable tax regulations are summarized. Depending on the country of origin of the order at the previous prices, the current VAT must be applied or not at the time of invoicing.

Heraldic creation methodology

Artista03 22 SinoplePlataOroAzur jpg

During the writing and illustration of «The book of the coat of arms of the Wolves Sable and the Unicorns Argent» I established the basis of a work procedure, which has now established my own heraldic creation methodology. Aware of the need for a methodology to deliver a constant quality service to my clients I'm improving it with the accumulated experience.

The methodology can be described as a 3-phase 3-activity-per-phase process which includes the return to any previous phase in a cycle of constant refining.

The thorough accomplishment of these nine activities (3 times 3) bring the result expected by the future holder of the heraldic shield.

These three phases are:

  • Conception which includes the activities of, elicitation and ideation, heraldic research and critique as well as the creation of a sketch coat of arms.
  • Plastic execution activities: layout and tincture; ornamentation and accompaniment; lighting and final art.
  • Completion and fulfillment activities: heraldic edition; final review and delivery; documentation and closure of records.
