I absolutely love our watercolour sketch! My parents left our childhood home this year to move into somewhere smaller and it was a bitg step and sad to be leaving a space with so many memories behind! I ordered a watercolour sketch of our childhood home for my parents to have as a keepsake and it is absolutely perfect! So much detail and exactly how I wanted it to be remembered, thank you so much for your beautiful work! The most special gift x
I am so impressed with the quality of the picture, it looks stunning in the hallway and a lovely keepsake of our first home! Thanks so much letterfest
From start to finish the process was easy and well communicated. I couldn't believe the proof I received--everything small detail had been captured beautifully. When I received the print I was even more amazed, it looked so beautiful in real life. I have given it as a gift to my parents so I will find out Christmas Day what they think! Thank you so much to the artist who created it!
Fabulous service and my dad really lovely the sketch!
Excellent service, delighted with the product
