Items are measured, flat and unshaped. Height/Length: From the bottom base to the top leaf tip – straight up.
Width: From tip of one end to tip of the other end. Measurements can depend on your shaping technique and can vary within a couple of inches. Products are manufactured by hand, therefore, measurements and color may vary slightly. Color will vary slightly from one shipment to another shipment. Stock samples are available by customer request before purchasing product.
Autograph's custom trees are fabricated on hand selected, quality artificial wood. All artificial plants and trees are manufactured according to the specifications of Autograph Designers and are inspected before shipping to be free of defects. Custom-made items are non-returnable, non-refundable.
Decorative Pots are measured by overall height, outside diameter, inside diameter (lip to lip), bottom diameter. Due to slight changes in molding process, measurements are sometimes rounded to the closest inch. Decorative containers are not waterproof. Autograph is not responsible for any damage caused by weather. Decorative containers must be ordered separately. They are not included in the price of any item. All containers are priced as NET (NO FURTHER DISCOUNTS). It is not Autograph's policy to recommend or select container sizes for plants or trees. Container size, color, and style are the customer’s decision.

INHERENT FIRE RETARDANT FOLIAGE:
Autograph manufactures many Inherent Fire Retardant items. We impregnate the necessary Fire Retardant additives directly into the fabric and polyethylene branch components prior to printing and injection molding. Our Fire Retardant system will not dissipate, wash off, drip off, or leave a messy, oily film. It meets all the National Fire Prevention Association 701 Tests for non-flammability plus the ASTM E84-95, Standard Test Methods for Surface Burning Characteristics of Building Materials. This test method is also published under the following designations: ANSI 2.5, NFPA244, UBC 8-1 (42-1) UL73. All fire retardant Foliage will have an “R” in the prefix and be indicated by a Fire Retardant Symbol.
All PVC material (Marked with “C” in the prefix) is Inherently Fire Retardant. Necessary documentation is available upon request.
Example: Any red colored item number (shown in the catalog) indicates item can be made Fire Retardant by special order.
