Texas Star Chinese Checker


Thank you so much for your interest in my historically based game board designs.  Please note that each game board takes several weeks to create.  It is a nine step process from beginning to end.  There are days of curing that are needed and the weather has to be agreeable for this method to be successful.  You will usually receive your piece in 3-5 weeks.  I often have several pieces available for immediate shipment and I am happy to let you know which pieces are available.

Please call my Studio in North Carolina (828-265-0977) to place an order or email the form below

Please browse the information below the form:  Payment, Shipping, Special Orders and Returns.

If I haven't contacted you within 24 hours then I may have not received your request.  Please email me directly:  dianeallison@charter.net

Thank you!   

Just a note:  each time you click the ORDER BUTTON a new ORDER FORM will open....if you would like to order more than one piece, you can do so by using one form for all - or one at a time.  This is inconvenient, and I apologize.  I sure wish I could figure out a way to make it easier for you....i'm better at painting, promise...

Special Order:

As you choose your designs, do keep in mind, that I am happy to change out a color to make it work with your vision.  For instance there are so many shades of red that would look beautiful on the patterns and work better with what you have.  I do not charge extra for these things for I want you to be happy.  I may have a piece or two in my studio available for immediate shipping, but it's not normally the case.  I paint as pieces are ordered. 


Checks and Credit Cards.  I do require payment at the time of your order so that you are placed on my calendar.  

I accept payments through Square, (similiar to PayPal) - I can either email you an Invoice to pay on your end or I can take your information over the phone and process on my end.  Whichever is easiest for you.


Your first shipping charges are complimentary by signing up for my newsletter.  If you would like to continue to receive free shipping I often run specials in every newsletter.  The Newsletter form is listed at the top of the page.

Shipping is $15 per order no matter how many boxes are shipped.  Shipped via FedEx.  If you would like to receive your game board other than through FedEx, please just let me know.

FedEx delivers to homes on Saturday but not on Monday.

Please Note:  Additional charges will be added for Alaska and outside of US for All Shipments. Additional charges will be the actual cost only.


If my work comes to you damaged please let me know so that I can notify FedEx and have the piece returned to me.  This hasn't happened yet, but you just never know!  If you receive a piece that you really don't like at all, please call me, I don't want you to be unhappy.  I can make another piece for you.  The thought of you walking by my artwork in your home and not loving it, would make me sad.  So lets fix that!  Exchanges within reason though!


I'm sorry but there are no exchanges on Commissions.  I do my very best to combine both of our visions to create an original piece for you.  But there is so much additional time invested, yes during the middle of the night, driving my car, where I find myself designing your piece.  I'm sorry, and I hope you understand.
