I purchased the watercolour house sketch as a 60th birthday present for my Mum. She loved it! I was very impressed at the transformation from the photo I supplied to the watercolour image. It was fantastic. I had contacted the company to request that they edit out some large, unsightly items (bins, storage boxes, etc!) that were in front of the house and they did a brilliant job of that. It took approximately 6 days for them to send me a proof to check (I am not sure if that is the average time or if it was longer due to my editing request). Once I had authorised the proof, the picture arrived the next day. Great service.Thank you.
nice picture but the wording wasnt what i asked for. still, the the wife was happy with it so thats ok
I bought the water colour house illustration and dad and me portrait. Both were exactly what I wanted. I asked for a few adjustments to my illustration which was no trouble at all... I would recommend paying the £3 for the preview copy.. Thanks Letterfest X
Bought for a birthday present and very happy with the service received. Fast and efficient with the portrait looking great.
