Yeah, the custom carvings are not done in the store, and in fact they're just laser cut with a machine. And the cut lines don't even look that clean (at least, not on the in-store samples I saw). I thought Michaels was all about promoting craft projects by human hands. I realize that not everyone wants to carve a foam pumpkin, but as many of us know, it's not too hard. You're better off doing it yourself.wookie66 wrote:So I went to Michael's today and really looked at those custom carvings that they offer to do and at the end your total bill is going to be around 60 to 70 dollars. That's nuts. I also asked them who carves the pumpkins and they said they ship them off to corporate to have them carved. So I guess part of the cost in getting a custom carve is double shipping. I'm also thinking potential side job opportunity and asking them if I can help them carve some of those pumpkins in the store.
