DESIGN PROCESS

Before you purchase a shield I will answer any questions you may have about what size blank to get and what can be done with it.

When you purchase a custom cut shield I will consult with you on your shield design needs and desires.

I will draw the design on the blank and send you a picture of it for approval. If it isn't right I will lay down more ink until it is. Your payment stays escrowed until you approve the design. If I can't draw someting right for you I will refund your money.


PROCESS SPECIFICS

I measure across the chord (edge to edge behind the arc - this side of the paranthesis is the face of the shield > ( < and this side is the back. The chord is meaured from edge to edge on the back side.)

I will normally cut a small radius at the upper corners. I am happy to round off the bottom point as well if you desire it.

Terms of Art

To minimize misunderstandings about what shape of shield a customer desires the following terms apply when ordering from By My Hand Designs LLC

Belly - refers to the relative amount of curve that the line defining the side of the shield has. If it is fairly straight it has little belly.. If it has a pronounced amount of curve it has a lot of belly.

Oval shields are shaped such that they have a large round curve at one end and a smaller curve at the other. See "Stadium Shield" for when both ends have the same radius.

Tear Drop Shield is an Oval whose smaller end comes to a point or very small radius.

A Stadium Shield shape is a pair of hemispheres connected by straight sides Often called oval but it is not.

An ellipse is a closed plane curve generated by a point moving in such a way that the sums of its distances from two fixed points is a constant. Not an oval and not a stadium.


My primary customer base is composed of people practicing armored foot combat under the SCA rules. If you are using a different set of rules that impact design criteria let me know.
