The style is based on the traditional woodcut method of printing with graphic black lines to bring out the woodcut texture. You can provide your own photo after ordering, just email them to us at [email protected] or we can work from Google street view or a weblink (see below for instructions).

About the illustration
Your Illustration will be hand-drawn black and white drawing of the property, not a computer generated image, so we can add/remove things you don’t want eg: cars / lampposts, we won't include dustbins, satellite dishes etc. We sketch the perspective from the photograph. It’s a simplified drawing but if you want a particular element emphasized just let us know on ordering.
You can select to see a digital proof before printing when you can check the artwork and make amends, although a charge will be made if you decide to cancel at this stage. The proof will be emailed to you for you to check.
