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).

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!
We are delighted with the picture we got from Letterfest. We had to send a variety of photos as we didn't have just one of the whole house, but they still produced a beautiful drawing.
The picture was for a surprise gift and our friend was over the moon with it!
Thank you Letterfest for such a lovely picture and such excellent service.
