Great experience. Excellent customer service and beautiful picture!
Very pleased with the quality and efficiency of Letterfest in producing two excellent framed drawings from the photographs we provided. They make really good and original presents. The pictures were produced on time and we are very happy with the service provided.
Purchased a personalised house portrait as a gift. Finished product excellent quality and true to likeness. Recipient very pleased with the gift
I’ve now purchased five works from Letterfest and I’m still impressed with the straightforward ordering process, the service, the great communication and the final product.
I always opt to receive a proof, as it allows you a sneaky peek of what your picture will look like, and it gives you the opportunity to request some tweaks (if desired). The Letterfest staff are always prompt in their responses and delivery is really quick.
In short, I love this company. 😁
Our son and daughter-in-law gifted us with a portrait of our new home for Christmas, and we loved it so much that we ordered a companion piece of the house that we are leaving after 15 happy years.
Thank you for a lovely momento that we will treasure.
