I bought my parents the Watercolour House Sketch as a memento of our family home - they’d just moved out of it after 33 years to downsize. They absolutely loved it and it now has pride of place next to the front door in their new home. Brilliant service!
Our son and daughter-in-law were about to celebrate their first wedding anniversary, and a watercolour of their wedding venue was the ideal ‘paper’ gift. Letterfest’s platform was very easy to negotiate, finding the image and uploading it to their system with a brief indication of what was required, was very, very easy.
The picture was absolutely perfect. Professionally done, returned to us in plenty of time (inside the time frame), securely packaged, and it was a perfect gift, much appreciated by the young couple.
We cannot commend Letterfest enough. And we would certainly use them again.
Very happy with the watercolour house sketch, quick and easy to order. Very impressed with the end product, great likeness, quick p&p, would definitely recommend
Very pleased! Very good watercolour sketch which has made a wonderful gift. Would definitely recommend
