The perfect gift for birthdays, Christmas, anniversaries and weddings.
A beautiful black and white portrait based on a photograph provided by you, capturing that special moment in a unique illustration.
To guarantee complete accuracy we now use bespoke filters on the computer to turn your treasured photo into a pencil sketch style illustration. Please enlarge image thumbnails for examples of the style - it is a linear illustration 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 whatver you want, 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 illustration will be emailed to you 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
After ordering upload a photo here or send us a weblink. Please make sure the photo is the largest version you have - blurred iphone pics will not be suitable!
Computer generated illustration, digitally printed on a soft stone colour background, on 200gsm acid free, fine grain artists paper.
We mount all the illustrations in a high quality bevelled white mount and also offer contemporary wooden frames from £22 - black (2cm wide), white (2.5cm w), oak (2.5cm w), painted/limed white where you can still see some wood grain (3cm w), all supplied with Pilkington glass and a mdf backing board. 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).

My new baby granddaughter has bought this as a gift for her mummy & Daddy for their anniversary/valentines. It is amazing, they will be delighted.
I have purchased sketches of a home, a dog, a wedding venue, engagement venues & each one has been more than I could of wished for.
Thankyou letterfest for your fantastic service also. More orders coming soon
Great picture. Love it. Thanks
Thanks Carol - Good of you to let us know.
Thank you so much to the team at Letterfest who created and framed a super drawing from one of my family pictures. My wife and I are really pleased with the outcome and have hung the images pride-of-place in our home.
The service from the team was first class, as they asked for my views at every stage and were really helpful when I realised I'd made a mistake; the team did everything they could to assist.
Thank you to the Letterfest team.
