For a unique christening gift why not commission a beautiful sketch of the church, hand drawn by local artists working in North Devon. The drawing is clean and contemporary with the sky and surroundings picked out in muted colours. Every illustration can be personalised with a message - choose from three typefaces (script, handwritten or modern sans-serif). Text will be printed on two lines, the top line slightly larger size eg: James Oscar / Christened at St Michael's Church, 5th July 2013. Add notes to your order in customer comments at checkout eg: exclude the gravestones.

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 and white, we colour the sky duck-egg blue, the grass a sage green and paths stone or grey. Bright paintwork such as front doors or painted concrete will also be coloured.
If you've asked for a digital proof, a proof will be emailed prior to printing. We offer up to 3 amends to your original drawing. For further changes there will be an additional charge.

I recently ordered this gift for a christening and sent a picture of the church and asked them to remove a tree in front of the church. When it arrived it exceeded my expectations! The picture is brilliant, clear and not cluttered. I also like that it was framed. We added writing such as name, church and date and my friend loved the personalisation of the gift. Will definitely be using again for other gifts!
Lovely quality and simple design. Makes for a treasured memory.
A lovely unusual but very personal wedding gift. Do order the digital proof as the website is a little confusing. Only niggle I feel you should see a proof before ordering without paying extra.
