A beautiful black and white portrait based on a photograph provided by you, capturing that special moment in a unique illustration. The perfect gift for birthdays, Christmas and Father's Day.
To guarantee complete accuracy we now use bespoke filters on the computer to turn your treasured photo into a pencil sketch style portrait. Please enlarge image thumbnails for examples of this effect - it is a linear style with added pencil strokes and shading. We can include or exclude the background behind the people, just let us know when ordering. The image can be whatever you want - just the two of you, or the wedding party, a formal pose or a more relaxed moment.
We can also print names, date or a message underneath the illustration in a handwriting style.
If you've asked for a digital proof, your portrait will be emailed for you to check. We will only be able to make small amends such as cropping and depth of shading (rather than changing face shape etc!)
How to provide a photo
