2) Choose a diamond painting website that will give more bang for your buck! Higher price does not mean better service quality. Choosing a website that has a better price is when after you’ve read good reviews. Think of the money that you will save to order another custom diamond painting.

3) Choose a website that offers a full refund if you did not like how your custom diamond painting turned out (within reason of course).

4) Choose a website that gives free replacement diamonds. Spilled diamond painting beads are common and any good diamond painting website store knows it. So choose the one that is gracious enough to send extra diamond painting beads when you lose some- and be honest about it. Lol.

5) Choose a website that will do everything to make sure you’ll be happy with how your custom diamond painting will turn out.

After submitting your photo or design, the diamond painting website store that you submitted to should be very responsive and give you feedback on your submitted photo- they will tell you what needs to be adjusted to your submitted photo or design and they will do it for you for free, once you gave permission.
