• Production Process
Unlike ready-made slipcovers, real custom slipcovers take time to make - but the difference is worth waiting for. From start to finish, your slipcover order will go through five different steps to ensure that you receive the custom fit you expect and the quality product you deserve.
The chart above shows when production is estimated to be completed if your order has been placed and first phase production completed - photos and measurements received and patterning completed by cut off date. For 2nd Phase Production allow 5 - 6 weeks and 5-7 business days for time in transit.
o 1st Phase of Production - During the 1st phase of production the custom slipcover is designed and a pattern created based on the photos and measurements you supply. The amount of time required to complete this part of production is contingent on how quickly you provide the information that the pattern makers need. The information is carefully reviewed to make sure it is complete and correct before the final pattern is completed. For detailed information about how we make our custom slipcovers please see - What Makes a Custom Slipcover Special.
o 2nd Phase of Production - When your pattern has been completed, your order will go on to the 2nd phase of production. During the 2nd phase of production, the slipcover will be built based on the custom pattern that was created for your order. Depending on the time of the year, there may be a wait list to go in the 2nd phase of production. The wait time depends on the number, size and complexity of the orders ahead of yours. Please keep in mind that orders are prioritized by the date the patterning is completed, NOT on the date the order was placed.
After your slipcover is completed, it is thoroughly inspected. If a manufacturing error is found, it will be sent back to be corrected. When your order passes final inspection, it is ready to be packaged and shipped.
Worth the Wait
Each order is unique, hand-crafted and given individual attention to ensure quality construction. Due to the high demand for our slipcovers and our very attractive pricing, we are working on several hundred orders at a time. However, we will not compromise the quality of our product in order to satisfy impatient customers. If you are not prepared to wait, we recommend that you order your slipcover from another vendor. Remember that perfection can not be rushed and is worth the wait.

"Owe you a huge apology...slipcover did arrive on Christmas Eve...came home at 11pm from party and found the slipcover at the front door. Ran inside with it and put it on the chaise...fits perfect, looks perfect, made beautifully. Worth the wait and time it took for me to get this. Made my Christmas even better then it already was. Back on my meds and feeling better. Thank you and I apologize again for freaking out on you." Amy D., Tom's River, NJ
"I just wanted to tell you that the slipcovers for my chair and ottoman are just fantastic. I love them and they fit perfectly and they look beautiful. I am so impressed by the workmanship. I want to thank you for keeping me completely informed and up-to-date as to the progress of my order. I never worried or had any doubt that the slipcovers would be completed as promised. I know that there have been a number of complaints about your company. I can only say that as far as I am concerned the complaints are baseless and unwarranted from my experience. You have been nothing but communicative and customer service oriented. The result is a beautiful product! I am happy to write a review for you, or you are welcome to use any part of this one in your advertisements or website. I will recommend you highly. I am a very satisfied customer!"
