For a truly unique gift why not commission a beautiful handdrawn illustration - perhaps your previous homes or the church and venue from a wedding. The drawing style is clean and contemporary with the sky and surroundings picked out in a range of colours. Every illustration can be further personalised with a printed message. Choose from 3 typefaces (script, handwritten or a modern sans-serif). Your text will be printed on 2 lines, the top line being a slightly larger size eg: The Orchards / 15 Lane End, Bideford, Devon.
How to provide a photo
Send us your photo - either upload with the order or email it to email@example.com. Or we can work from an image on a website, just send us the link.

Use the pointers to locate your house. When you have a good view, click the link icon, copy the link and send it to us.
About the illustration
Your Illustration will be hand drawn black & white sketch of the property, not a computer generated image, so we can add/remove things you don’t want eg: cars or lamp posts, and we won't include dustbins, satellite dishes etc. We will sketch the view from the photograph (ie the same perspective). It’s a simplified drawing of the house but if you want more detail we also offer a ‘Detailed portrait’ version. The drawing will be portrait or landscape that best suits the image. Although the house will be in black & white we colour the sky duck-egg blue, the grass a sage green, paths stone or grey and windows cream. Bright paintwork such as front doors or painted concrete will also coloured.
If you've asked for a digital proof, a proof will be emailed prior to printing.
