A beautiful personalised illustration of your home. This sketch is hand-drawn based on a provided photo by you.
The drawing style is clean and contemporary with the property left black and white, and digitally printed with a solid background colour; with personalised text in the bottom corner in a choice of 3 typefaces (script, handwritten or a modern sans-serif). We print the text on 2 lines with the first words on the top line and slightly larger eg: Mandy & Russ / St Michael's Church, 5th July 2012 OR The Orchards / Maidenhead OR Home sweet home / 15 Lane End, Bideford etc).
If you've asked for a digital proof, we will email you a pdf of your illustration to check.

Handrawn illustration, coloured and digitally printed in a graphic, contemporary style with offset block colours on 200gsm acid free, fine grain artists paper.
- Illustrations are handrawn black & white drawings outlining the house - this is a simplified sketch not an exact copy. For more detail order our Detailed Portrait for £70.
- If part of the house is obscured by a hedge/wall we will draw the hedge/wall, unless you provide a reference image.
- We will NOT include cars, people, pets, or unattractive elements eg: satellites, bins, for sale signs etc.
The extra large frames have a shabby-chic feel with a distressed paint effect, showing the grain beneath with integrated hanging hook, ready for display. These larger frames are glazed with perspex for safe delivery. We use a high grade Quinn Perspex with perfect optical qualities (so it looks completely clear) and are UV stabilised (so they won't discolour over time).

Great picture of our house, very pleased with it
Great fast service!
I bought this for my neighbour who after 35 years is moving, it moved her to tears. It's a great gift and a fantastic picture. Really pleased with letterfest. And if like me you make a mistake with your order and you need to ring the team, you will find them to be professional, friendly and really helpful.
A great company with great products!
