HOW ARE FLOWERS PRESSED AND PRESERVED?
It has taken years to learn what we have learned about pressing flowers of all types. Sarah, the CEO has educated our team to perfection with all that she has learned through her years of experience, trial and error. We have created our own systems and processes based off of our expertise. If you are trying to press flowers yourself start by pressing flowers between two pages of a book with plenty of weight on top! When it comes to preserving sentimental floral arrangements, such as your wedding bouquet, hire us as your professional preservation experts. You have one shot to preserving these beautiful pieces! All of us at Pressed Floral love doing what we are doing! 

HOW SOON DO YOU NEED THE FLOWERS?
The sooner the better. We recommend within 3 days, and they are usually workable within one week. Prior to them being delivered to our shop keep them in the fridge or in water with fresh cut stems! Signs that your bouquet is not workable - the flowers crumble to the touch or the bases are beginning to mold.

CAN YOU INCORPORATE RIBBONS, PENDANTS, OTHER SENTIMENTAL ITEMS, ETC.?
Do not send any ribbons, pendants, handkerchiefs, or other sentimental items with your floral arrangements, They will not be used in the final product and will be discarded upon arrival.  

IS THERE ANY FLOWERS THAT CAN NOT BE PRESSED?
We are so proud to announce that we can press most any flower. There are some that can not be thinned. These include, and are not limited to: artificial flowers, silver brunia balls, some pincushions, billy balls, cactus, pinecones, additional fruits/vegetables, and pendants. 

WILL COLORS FADE AFTER THE BOUQUET IS ALREADY FRAMED?
Flowers will continue to fade for their entire lifetime. If you take care of your frame additional fading can be minimized. The more your frame is exposed to sunlight, the greater chance/speed of fading. When you get your frame it WILL fade more than what you see. Enjoy the frame for decades to come! 

WILL ALL OF MY FLOWERS BE PRESSED?
Not all will be pressed, and not all that are pressed will be used. Our team will go through and choose the best quality and in best condition flowers prior to pressing and framing to ensure the best final product. This is all part of our artists creative liberty to produce a product they are perfectly proud of for our clients.
