From time to time, the Tsa Tsa Studio takes on the commission of large numbers of tsa tsas to be offered to the public at group events such as Dharma teachings, retreats, empowerments and other public functions. In these cases, a sponsor - usually the organization hosting the teaching or event - requests Tsa Tsa Studio to make a quantity of a specific Buddha that is appropriate for the event, and the sponsor is charged a low commission rate for the tsa tsas.

The commission rate applies for any quantity over 100, as long as the tsa tsas are all of the same image and in the same color or metal. If a variety of colors or metals is requested, the commission rate will still apply, providing at least 100 of any one color or metal is ordered. The cost depends upon the number of new molds that need to be purchased and the cost of the materials being used. A deposit (usually 50 percent of the total) is required at the time of ordering to help us pay for materials and molds.

Please note that, due to the Studio's small staff and working space, we require plenty of lead time for large commissions. Inquiries should be made directly to the Studio's center director, Deirdre Frank, by emailing or phoning Tsa Tsa Studio at 415-503-0409 or Deirdre's cell phone at 510-734-4215.
