Great result and excellent communication. All details I requested were included in the final picture. I’d certainly recommend paying the extra for a proof.
Wonderful service as always from letterfest, particularly their quick response to emails and listening to customer suggestions. Thank you for a beautiful print .
Very nice of you to say Julie. It can be a little daunting to commission an illustration at first but Camille and the team try to make it as easy as possible. I think they do a great job and nice to hear that others do too.
Have a lovely day,
Thank you for taking care with the illustration - I am very pleased with the finished result
Picture was exactly like the design advertised. Very pleased with the final product and quick service.
Ordered a print of their house for my son and daughter-in-law who live in USA. They are delighted with the gift. A really unique idea and the ordering service was so efficient and easy. Will definitely use again.
