Delighted with the picture of a house. It was for a friend and they absolutely loved it. The perfect gift. 5 stars indeed for quality and service.
I ordered a portrait of our house as an anniversary present for my husband and am so happy with it! I went for the small square picture with a white beveled frame and it looks very high quality. I added the digital proof option as an extra and the team were very happy to make the changes I suggested after my first review (I wanted more of houses on either side to be seen and also asked for a little colour to be added based on my sister’s house portrait). Letterfest completed the portrait very quickly and delivered it within 1 week. They were a pleasure to deal with and I would highly recommend them! This is a great present!
I have ordered a number of these and they are so well received! Letterfest always deliver on time and the product is amazing quality
Latest in a long line of fabulous presents which never disappoint! Cannot recommend more highly
The house portrait is fantastic my husband loved it
