Hi ladies

I'm thinking about buying a wonderful preloved (like new!) Artois in MM. The only downside is that it's customized and have the sellers initial on the it.. (3 letters), grey colour.
Do you think it's possible to cover the initials with new customization if I ask Goyard to do it?

My understanding is that Goyard will only do marquage within 3 months of purchase. With the bag being preloved, I don't think they'll do it. It has to do with the softening of the coated canvas making it difficult to do quality control. However, there are many after market artists that can help you with the customization that would look just as beautiful! Good luck!

I removed initials on a bag, and messed up the fabric. Goyard redid the customization, (I put a dog on it). It cost quite a bit, but. I like it better. And, I'd had the bag several years, (before I attempted to remove my monogram, I never liked the colors and placement). The things to remember here is that I'm the original owner, and that Goyard did the painting, both times. I would call a boutique and ask. The Dallas boutique reps have always been helpful to me.
