In need of some advice!

 I looked back for advice about this but I may not have looked back far enough and I'm running out of time a bit. 

I'm getting ready for Anime:USA and will be selling things in Artist's Alley. One of the items I'm offering is Scrabble tiles turned in to either pendants or rings. I have pre-made designs, but I also did a few tests to see if I could do original art that small, and I can! I'd like to offer original art commissions for the pendants, but I'd like to have some sort of form for people to fill out with info on what they want drawn, description of the character, that sort of thing. Does anyone have a sheet like this that I could see? I'm so brain-fried that I can't even think of what I should put on this thing. I'd have to mail the rings or pendants out to people after the convention because of how long it takes for the glaze to dry, so it definitely needs to have a space for a mailing address.

Anyone help me out? Thanks!

It's not specific to your situation, but here's my commission form, if it'll help: http://fs12.formsite.com/Kayla-La/form470441986/index.html

You can also use that site to create a form, and you could probably print it out from there, though I haven't tried that.

You know, some of that does actually help. Like having an FA/DA name would probably be good just as a back up in case something goes wrong. Thanks for the link!

Just glad it could be of some help, I actually came here to AB and asked for advice when I made my own form. :)

You'll find some people are put off by the nature of forms, just to warn you. There's not really anything you can do about that and it's silly since it's all info you'd have to gather anyway, but something about having it in form.. form, might scare some people off. But it's still a good idea and makes life so much easier. I have people fill it out for commissions now and it automatically gets sent to my email where I can label it under commissions. It makes all the info I need so much more accessible!

Actually for some reason whenever I do cons, people LOVE to fill out forms! *lol* I don't know what it is, but they seem to grab at the form+pen like it was candy.

Might be different in a in-person environment! I just know on the internet that it's weirded some people out. Maybe when they get to fill it out in person, it makes it feel more 'real', if that makes any sense?

Good idea! This reminds me to add "print business cards" to my list of things to do!
