Family Portrait


Estimated Shipping Widget will be displayed here! (with custom color)

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 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 whatever 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!) We offer up to 3 amends to your original. For further changes there will be an additional charge.

How to provide a photo

Simply upload your photo to your order with the 'Upload Your Photo' option. If you are having problems email it to

Please make sure the photo is the largest version you have - blurred iPhone pics will not be suitable!

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.

Amazing picture

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.

Hi John, Thanks for the photo - great to see our designs together like that, very effective.
