If you've had a great commission experience, either as an artist or a customer, please comment here and spread the word. It doesn't have to be a full-on story, though you're welcome to type one! All we need are a few lines on why this person was so great to work with. You can also recommend companies, such as printers or fursuit-making teams, as long as it's relevant to artists!

There are plenty of reasons to post someone here: perhaps they went above and beyond the call of duty to fix a problem, or were so prompt with communication and payment it was like having them right next to you, or were very professional and courteous every time you contacted them.

To help keep things organized, please follow this simple form:

1. Name of the person you recommend (please also put this in the subject of your comment):
2. Link to person's website or art page:
3. Approximate time period of when you did business with this person:
4. Details (Here's where you tell us why they are so awesome! What made the transaction go so well? Perhaps link to the art or suit you bought/sold if you feel like sharing. Please mark NSFW if the subject matter is adult!!):

If you have multiple people to recommend, please put them in separate comments to keep things organized.

4. Keedot is quick, professional, and is always a pleasure to work with. I got a custom image done for my debit card, and it was completed in a flash.

Re: Keedot
Pfff oh my gosh, I didn't even see yours until after I posted mine.

Kee is on a roll! And oh my gosh, that picture is so lovely. :D

1. Name of the person you recommend: Keedot
2. Link to person's website or art page: https://www.furaffinity.net/user/keedot
3. Approximate time period of when you did business with this person: First inquiry sent around April 14. Finished picture posted to gallery on May 16.
4. Details: I've commissioned Kee before and they are an absolute joy to work with. Very polite, positive, and respectful, and they genuinely seem to enjoy working with me and my characters in return. This time I commissioned them for a sort of coming-out piece about my recent gender experiences, which drew some heavy inspiration from a previous (unrelated) piece they'd drawn and posted that just really happened to hit me and speak to me when I needed it the most.

I admit I might have violated the sort of "The artist just needs to know basic reference/pose/etc, not your entire life story" rule and kind of went on when talking to Kee about this piece, but half of that was just gushing about that piece because I wanted them to know how much it meant to me. Kee was incredibly positive and supportive, both of my experiences and of my probably-too-long fan mail, haha. And they also knew exactly the sort of mood I was talking about for this commission based on all that, and captured it perfectly.

The end result is here (NSFW) and as you can see, their positivity extended well beyond the actual dealing with me part of the commissioning experience and into the description/comments/etc. Not only is that picture absolutely stunning, but just reading through the comments honestly made me almost as happy as the picture itself did.

Just... I cannot thank Keedot enough for this whole experience. It means the world to me. And obviously I cannot recommend them more highly. Kee is the best, for srs.

3. Bought a YCH and got it finished two days afterwards.
I also bought artwork from her before, and the longest it had taken for her to finish something was 1 month.
4. She's friendly, though as she's from spain her english is quite limited but it is easy to work with her anyway!. I've bought art from her plenty of times in the past, here is the YCH I got from her(SFW): http://www.furaffinity.net/view/23570461/

WMW66 Costumes
1. Name of the person you recommend: WMW66 Cotumes - Motomo Wahots was the one I was keeping in contact with
2. Link to person's website or art page: http://www.wmw66-costumes.com/
3. Approximate time period of when you did business with this person: Ordered May 19th - Package arrived at June 7
4. Details: I was searching in a Fursuit Facebook group for anyone from EU that could do a pair of feet pawpads for me and ordered a pair for $60 from WMW66 Costumes when approached by them - They had really nice communication of delays because of materials needing to arrive despite still being over a month away from the deadline I had set and was just overall nice, easy and shift to work with. Pads were done around June 1 and arrived June 7 in perfect condition and matching exactly the color I went for - http://i.imgur.com/g7vkZdv.jpg

StickerApp company
1. StickerApp
2. https://stickerapp.com/
3. Couple weeks ago, and recieved my stickers in 5-7 days
4. Decided to test these guys because they were recommended by a friend, they have some neat materials available with more coming, (also ecological paper ones which is always a plus for me personally), and are flexible with sticker sizes and amount while still being quite affordable. I bought mirror stickers, the effect looks good, they seem durable and the print quality is crisp:

Name: jorunna/foxhopped
Website: https://www.furaffinity.net/user/jorunna/ | https://twitter.com/foxhopped
Time Period: June 3rd to June 16th

Details: I was introduced to jorunna's work from a good friend of mine and I have to say it's been one of the best commissioning experiences I've ever had! On June 3rd I commissioned a pack of 10 Telegram stickers and all of them turned out fantastic and full of high quality, from general character expressions to emulations of memes.

She's incredibly friendly and wonderful to work with. Communication is top-notch and she keeps her Trello updated frequently. The turnaround for her commissions are also usually very quick and overall very satisfying!

I just commissioned another pack of 10 Telegram stickers today and I eagerly look forward to them and commissioning her more in the future! Her charming artwork and warm, welcoming personality has won my heart as a returning customer!

Here's a link to all the fantastic stickers I've gotten from her so far:
