What upgrades or add-ons are available?

  • Most parties include basic design choices. If you prefer something more advanced, and the children are under the age of 11, there is an additional charge of $5 per participant (groups of 15 or less). It will require us to prefold the main design or shape onto their shirt. Even though the design is pre-folded, I will take time to demonstrate how I did the folding so that they understand why their shirt looks like it does, and so they will be able to navigate the folded shirt when applying the dye. If the participants are age 11 or older, we will need an additional hour of studio time ($50) for the participants to fold their shirts. This option for ages 11 and older is only available for groups of 10 or fewer participants.
  • Custom Screen printed design on the shirts: (prices vary)
  • Custom Gift from us. An additional charge and you get a custom t-shirt for the Birthday Star.
  • Additional 30 minutes: For an additional fee, kids age 8 and up can use our dice game “Left, Center, Right” or they have an additional 30 minutes to hula hoop, dance or do a craft or game that you provide. Basically, you can use our studio space for 30 additional minutes.
  • Face Painting with Carly: (Prices vary based on the number of children.) This will require the purchase of an additional 30 minutes as well as her fees for using face paint to transform your kiddos into all sorts of creatures, including (but not limited to) fairies, bugs or even cheeseburgers!
  • Tree Hugger: $0, See Sustainability page for details

Do we get to choose the designs?

For birthday parties and workshops for children ages 11 and under, and for other beginners, my assistants and I guide the children through the process of folding a spiral. It is the easiest for beginners and turns out great results.

If you prefer something more advanced, and the children are under the age of 11, there is an additional charge of $5 per participant (groups of 15 or less). It will require us to pre-fold the main design or shape onto their shirt. Even though the design is pre-folded, I will take time to demonstrate how I did the folding so that they understand why their shirt looks like it does, and so they will be able to navigate the folded shirt when applying the dye. If the participants are age 11 or older, we will need an additional hour of studio time ($50) for the participants to fold their shirts. This option for ages 11 and older is only available for groups of 10 or fewer participants.

For children turning 11 and Tween/teen and Adult parties and workshops, The party host/hostess can choose ahead of time from a variety of designs.

I booked an in-studio birthday party, now what?

Now that we have your reservation all set, let’s move on to what I need from you in order to create an awesome party for your kiddo.

I need your phone number and email.

If you have chosen the Children’s Party 2DY4 or upgraded your 90-minute Kid’s Party to include the custom gift option, I need to know your kiddo’s t-shirt size and what type of t-shirt and colors they would like as my gift to them. Heart, spiral, mouse, or football. If they prefer something else, please, let me know. I am flexible. I will do my best to accommodate their request. I need to know this at least 3 weeks before the party. Otherwise, I will just create a design as a gift to give to them. (This is not included in the 90-minute party. However, it can be added for an additional fee. Please contact me for a full quote.)

I need to know what 3 colors of dyes you prefer to have. The primary set we offer is actually 4 colors (turquoise, fuchsia, and yellow, plus the popular BRIGHT green). These colors are my personal favorites, because they are the most versatile. From these colors you can get pretty much any color of the rainbow. If you would like other colors, though, let me know what colors you like, and I can figure out what combination will work the best. Pink, blue and purple OR Turquoise, Lime Green, and Fuchsia Pink and are also a nice trio. Those seem to be popular choices, too. Just let me know what you want!

Finally, I need some information in the invitation RSVP from each kid coming to the party. Please request two things from parents:

1: I need to know the name of the participant and their t-shirt size at least one week before the date of the party. In order to keep the party running smoothly, it is important that I have the names of the guests ahead of time. If you are requesting screen printing on the shirts I must have the design confirmation, and all the guests names and sizes 3 weeks before the date of the party. 

Kid sizes: Small is a 5-6, Medium 7-8, Large 10, and XL 12-14. The shirts are preshrunk, but take into account they may want these to last through summer. The rest of the adult sizes are pretty much standard.

2: Inform parents about the waiver they need to sign and send/bring to the workshop. It is also mandatory for each participant to have a waiver filled out before they can dye with us. This keeps me covered if someone decides to dye their hair blue. It also allows me to use pictures from the party for advertising. The waiver is available as a PDF on our website

You can always let me know if you have any more questions.

What is your studio like?

My studio is spacious and colorful. I have an area designated for food and gifts, and an open area for the dyeing and other activities. In addition to dyeing, the children get to put their handprints on my wall and take silly selfies. I have a disco ball and other lights, bouncy balls and hula hoops for a post-dye dance party. And, of course, we take care of the clean-up!

You can see pictures of the studio on the About Us page.

Can I bring my own shirt?

In most cases, no. The prewash detergent I use preps the cotton to better absorb the dyes. We also need the shirts before the day you dye. We need to prep and pre-soak the shirts ahead of time for better results.
Please contact me if you are thinking of this as an option at erin@rollupndye.com.

Should I bring another activity or craft?

I always recommend if you are doing a party at your home, that you have another craft other activities planned. We have yet to need extra crafts or games during in-studio parties. We have a craft included in the Party 2DY4 and the post-dye dance party.

Can I bring my own music?

I have a kid-appropriate dance party mix. But feel free to bring what you like. I have a hook up for iPad/iPod etc. pretty much any device with a headphone jack. But, if you are not sure that your device is compatible, just ask us (before the day of the party).
