How to measure for your new custom, embroidered cover 

  

Is your cage: 

A)     Open flat top cage.jpg (97230 bytes)                 B)                or C)   
          Open top cage                   Play top cage, or a cage with             Dome top cage
                                       
                 something solid on the top

 

To measure for A) – cage with an open top, for an over the top of the cage cover:

A)              Measure from side to side (width)

B)              Measure from front to back (depth)

C)              Measure from the top to where you want it to hang to (length – generally where seed catching skirt attaches to the legs of the cage, or, if your don’t use a skirt, about two inches below the cage bottom

D)              Please specify if you would prefer:
I)          a Velcro opening to ease in putting cover on/taking cover off
II)        an overlap opening, where the fabric overlaps approximately 10 inches to
            block out light, and does not require Velcro to stay closed
III)       a pleat in the back of the cover, which adds fullness and aids in covering
            the cage and removing the cover, and leaves no openings in the cover for
            light to come through.

 

To measure for B1) – Play top cage, or a cage with a solid top or a seed catching pan resting on top of the cage

                                          For a wrap around cover, which wraps around the top of your cage,
                                          is held in place with elastic and closes with Velcro

A)              Measure from side to side (width)

B)              Measure from front to back (depth)

C)              Measure from the top to where you want it to hang to (length – generally where seed catching skirt attaches to the legs of the cage, or, if your don’t use a skirt, about two inches below the cage bottom

 

 

To measure for B2) – Play top cage, or a cage without a solid top or a seed catching pan resting on top of the cage
                                         For an over the top cover, which will also cover the play area

A)              Measure from side to side (width)

B)              Measure from front to back (depth)

C)              Measure from the top to where you want it to hang to (length – generally where seed catching skirt attaches to the legs of the cage, or, if your don’t use a skirt, about two inches below the cage bottom

D)              Measure from the perch on the play top to the top of the cage.

E)               State which direction the perch runs:
I)          from side to side (as shown) or,
II)         from front to back

F)               Describe how the perch is held up:
I)          with arched supports (as shown), or
II)         with inverted “V” supports

 

To measure for C) – dome top cage, for an over the top cage cover

A)              Measure from side to side (width)

B)              Measure from front to back (depth)

C)              Measure from the top to where you want it to hang to (length – generally where seed catching skirt attaches to the legs of the cage, or, if your don’t use a skirt, about two inches below the cage bottom

D)              Measure from the top center of the arch to where the cage would be a flat top without the arch (arch calc)

 

FOR ALL CAGE TYPES:

    Please be certain to mention anything that sticks out from the cage, such as seed skirts, water bottles, food bowls, etc.  Please let me know how far it protrudes, and it's location. 

    In the case of a seed skirt, the covers are GENERALLY made to end where the seed skirt attaches to the cage, tucking into the seed skirt.  Please let me know if you prefer otherwise.

 

 

FOR A CAGE TYPE NOT LISTED ABOVE -- please send me a photo.  I will show what I need measured, and send it back to you.

 

If you don’t see the configuration you’re looking for (such as corner cages), please include a sketch or photo of the cage with the necessary measurements, and specify the type of cover needed as well as the information below.  Thank you.
