At this point your order can still be refunded entirely, as we have not started to work on your design. Once we start working on your design, the design fee will not be refunded
  • Why can't I see a proof right away?Unlike most personalized portrait shops that do not require sittings, our designs are NOT done using automated software. We are proud to count on a super talented team of award-winning illustrators and digital artists who handcraft all your exclusive designs within 3-5 days. Once the artists finish working on your design, our art directors review the quality before it’s uploaded to your account. Since we don’t automate any step of our design process, it is impossible for us to offer any type of immediate preview.
  • Can I see more than one proof with my face per artwork?If you need design proofs for more than one photo, design charges for each photo will apply. The price of your artwork already includes one design fee - for one proof in your selected design style. Please keep in mind that all of our designs are hand illustrated by actual artists. Creating each design proof by hand takes several hours due to our high standards and attention to details.

    Our qualified customer service & design consultants will be happy to discuss any questions or concerns and give you advice at no extra charge if you can't decide which photo to use or which design style will work best before you'll place your order. Once we approve your photo and we start working on it, we will not honor refunds for the design price and any request to change your photo or the design style will incur an additional design fee, as the work will already have been started. However, we will do as many modifications to the current design as you need at no charge.
  • How many revisions can I ask for?We want you to be completely satisfied with your custom character portrait. We are happy to offer unlimited revisions. Our talented artists will work with you so that you can become the superhero or villain that you always dreamed of. Please keep in mind that all portraits and revisions are limited only by the photo that you send us.
  • Can I reuse my design for another piece?Already have a Comics Factory design? That's great! Now you can order additional copies and different products without having to pay the full design fee again or at all. You can order an exact copy of your portrait or order it in a different size, material and framing or mounting options. Saving or taking over the world can be tough. Sometimes you need more than one alter ego. Or maybe the superhero in you wants to battle with the villain version. You can order a new copy of your artwork featuring you as any other character and only pay a small design adjustment fee. We never dispose of your design, so even if you contact us years from now we will have your design on file.
  • Reviewing my design proofWithin 3-5 business days of receiving your photo/s your design proof will be available on your account for your approval or modifications. You will be able to view your proof/s by visiting the "My Proofs" section under My Account. If you don't have Internet access or an email address available we will mail you the proof. You may ask for any color changes and reasonable design changes for no additional fee as long as we keep working on the same photo in the same design style. If you ask for any changes you will receive another design proof in 1-2 business days. We will not complete the portrait until you give us your approval (by email or by phone). Your satisfaction is our number one guarantee.

    Are you wondering why you can't see a design proof right away? Please keep in mind that all of our designs are hand illustrated by actual artists. Creating each design proof by hand takes several hours due to our high standards and attention to details.

    You can let us know in advance which colors or color scheme to use for your design. Need exact color matching services? We offer an exact color match service for an additional fee.
  • Receiving my artworkOnce your design is approved your portrait will go to production. Production will take 2-3 business days.

  • How many revisions can I ask for?When creating a completely custom piece, we will create as many revisions as you'd like, within reason from the original sketches and concept that will be agreed upon.

Our staff of professionals carefully oversees each step of this process to guarantee that you'll receive your portrait in perfect condition.

  • Can you change my eye and/or hair colorCertainly. We can color your eyes and hair however you want.
  • Can I change the Superhero's logo in the artworkYou can create any logo that you want as long as it is not a logo already owned by another company or franchise.
  • I wear glasses; do you remove or keep them?The choice is yours our artist can draw them in or leave them out in case you don’t want your alter ego given away while incognito.
  • Can you add or remove facial hair?Sure! If facial hair is part of your disguise or you just feel that there should be more bearded superheroes, or maybe you think your villain will look best with a sinister goatee, just let us know and our artists will do your bidding
