Matthew Alderman frequently undertakes commissions for coats of arms, badges or other insignia for parishes, church communities, organizations, and private individuals.  He offers both design services for the arms themselves and also presentation or graphic renderings of existing coats of arms.  Matthew usually includes a pay-by-the-hour sketch phase (with an agreed-upon not-to-exceed cap) for the design portion of the process, with interim sketches reviewed by the client, before a final flat-fee rendering phase.  Pricing varies with size subject, matter and timetable.  Contact him here or via matthew@matthewalderman.com.


Sizing and Media: Heraldic renderings and art can be commissioned in sizes ranging from 3" x 4" to 11" x 17" or larger, hand-crafted in black ink with single or double-color accents ink on archival-quality acid-free rag paper or full-color or sepia watercolor on 120 pound watercolor paper.  Matthew also offers a two-in-one package of a hand-inked illustration of the finished arms and a digitally-colored scan of the arms for use on letterheads and other media.  Inquire for a free estimate or consultation.  Discounts available for multiple or large orders.
