    Any real limitations? i mean how about somthing along the lines of the McFarlane Twisted Christmas figurines?
    or should we stick to more traditional designs?

    So these may seem like obvious questions, but I’m not sure.

    1. Can you enter more than one model?

    3. Can you wait and get it printed after DEC. 1?

      Kind regards,
