Now Booking for Fall:  Monday, September 18th - Friday, September 22nd

Appointments open daily – spots available from 8am – 3pm CST. Openings start at 8am, last opening at 3pm CST.

Twice a year Sticks puts on a 'trunk show" where you can create your own, custom Sticks piece no matter where you are – all appointments will be held by phone call! You will have the chance to speak with one of our talented artists over the phone to talk through the Sticks piece of your dreams.

 What is a Sticks Trunk Show? (FAQ at the bottom of page.)

  • The ONLY TIME custom Sticks orders are "on sale" - initial customization fees that we normally charge are waived for this event only.*
  • You get to work directly with one of our talented Sticks artists - the real treat here, let's be honest! (Normally, you'd work with a sales representative as the middle man between you and the artist, still a great experience but just not quite the rock star treatment.)
  • Add personal imagery, words and colors to tell a story that’s uniquely you. 
  • Communicate by phone call during your appointment to brainstorm your custom Sticks piece. Concepts and drawings will be sent via email for approval.

So... you're interest in the idea of a custom Sticks piece. Let's talk design!

Frequently Asked Questions

How long is the virtual meeting?

Each appointment is one hour. Reminder: we are located in central standard time zone and we will call you at your scheduled time!

How much does this cost?

We require a $100 nonrefundable deposit to secure your spot. That deposit will be applied to the final price of your piece, which will quoted following your meeting. There are no additional custom fees applied during this design event.

Where can I look for product inspiration?

Browse through our product selection. We can customize design format, imagery, words and color. Love something from the website? Be sure to write down the ‘image name’ in the product description, so we can reference it during the meeting!

How do I pick colors?

Search for your favorite piece on our website. We can incorporate other colors and we can complement fabrics, walls and décor in the space where your custom piece will go. We also like to know what colors you DON’T want to see on your piece. Our artists will take this information and create a gorgeous, cohesive color palette on the piece.

Who will be on the call?

Typically, you would just work directly with EJ, but during this event you’ll also get to speak with one of our art directors that are involved in the making of your custom piece, too! Both art directors, Amy and Michelle, have worked at Sticks for many years and are involved in the entire creative process for Sticks pieces. EJ, our Sticks Gallery manager, works on a daily basis with clients to discuss ideas and vision for custom pieces. They’ll make a wonderful, collaborative team with you!
