Scroll to the bottom of this section ↓ for step-by-step instructions.

PRINT TYPES:
═══════════════════

➤ PAPER ➤ Printed on heavyweight matte paper using archival-quality inks. Needs to be framed to display.

➤ CANVAS ➤ Printed on smooth, clay-coated canvas, and gallery-wrapped over a 3/4" deep wood frame. No need to frame, hardware included. Recommended for outdoor display, makes a lovely keepsake.

PRINTABLE option ➜ Personalized, high-resolution, printer-ready files via email


FRAMES:
═══════════════════

✚ Add a maple wood frame using the drop-down menus when placing your order. Choose from Gold, Rose Gold, Silver, Gray, Rustic White, Natural, Walnut, Espresso, or Black.

➤ FRAMES for PAPER are solid wood, and include the glass and hardware. These are 1" wide and 7/8" deep. All colors except black are beveled. For guest books, you’d want to have the print in the frame at your event, but take out the front glass piece until after it's signed.

➤ FLOATER FRAMES for CANVAS are solid wood, and include the hardware. There is NO GLASS. These are 3/8" wide and 1 1/4" deep.


EASELS & PENS:
═══════════════════

✚ ADD AN EASEL ➜ Lightweight, folding tripod easels are available in a number of colors to match your event decor perfectly (Natural Wood, painted White, Silver, Gold, or Rose Gold), and two sizes (25" table-top easel, or 65" floor-stand easel). Order here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/539577816/wood-easel

PENS ➜ I recommend providing your guests with ARCHIVAL-quality pens (such as Sakura/Micron). You should be able to find those at a craft store such as Michael’s, or on Amazon. I do not recommend Sharpies, or any other non-archival pens, as they may fade over time. Please keep in mind that you’ll need a light-colored and/or metallic pen if your signature spots are dark.

A NOTE ABOUT METALLICS
.....................................................................

I am often asked how to print these. This design does NOT use metallic ink, glitter etc. It's a digital faux metallic image, which imitates the look of highlights and shadows created by light. It is printed on any regular white background. My customers have been very happy with the results this creates.

REVISIONS

Two rounds of revisions are included.
Allow 2 business days per revision.
Please note that multiple VERSIONS are not included as revisions.

Frequently Asked Questions

✅ ORDERING INSTRUCTIONS ➜

We usually ask you to provide your info in the "Personalization" or "Notes" box when placing you order. For PORTRAITS, each design has a unique web link for sending over your photos.

Please scroll through each item's photos and read its DESCRIPTION section for complete ordering info and FAQs.

✅ CURRENT TIMING ➜

You can expect emailed proofs (or printable files) within 4–7 business days of your order date for non-portrait orders. Portrait proofs take 2–3 weeks. For PRINTED items, you'll be asked to approve the design for print (or revise, if needed).

Printing and shipping takes approximately 2–3 weeks from proof approval. For PRINTABLE orders, you will be able to download and print as soon as you're happy with the emailed design.

Allow an additional 1–2 business days per revision (2–3 business days for portrait revisions).

You can normally expect things on the quicker end of the ranges given, but we are not able to provide delivery guarantees on non-rush orders.

✅ 🔥 RUSHING YOUR ORDER ➜

We offer a variety of rush options under "Shipping" at Checkout. Or, you can add rush to an existing order here:

PORTRAIT: https://www.etsy.com/listing/605464486/rush-my-portrait
NON-PORTRAIT: https://www.etsy.com/listing/235001511/rush-my-design

You may also choose to rush the printing & shipping portion of the process only. A link to shipping upgrade options will be included in the email you receive with your proof.

✅ CHOOSING PHOTOS FOR PORTRAITS ➜

There's no need for everyone to be together in the photo. Separate photos for each person are just fine. A high-quality, forward-facing photo of each person's face is what's most important for a great likeness. Learn more here: https://tinyurl.com/HowToPickPhotos

✅ DIY PRINTABLES VIA EMAIL ➜

Most items in our shop have the option to choose a "printable", or "email file only", if you prefer to print locally. While we highly recommend the professional printing services offered via the shop, choosing this option means you'll receive personalized, high-resolution, printer-ready (printable) files via email. Please see "CURRENT TIMING" above for how soon to expect the emailed designs.

✅ INTERNATIONAL ORDERS ➜

Use coupon code PRINTABLEONLY to remove shipping costs from printable orders at checkout. Choosing the printable, and printing locally, is often the quickest, and most affordable option for International customers. International shipping is 2–5 weeks, depending on customs.

✅ SIZING (for Guest Books + Seating Charts) ➜

Here are suggested sizes:

➤ 11” x 14” → for up to 50 guests
➤ 16” x 20” → for between 50 and 100 guests
➤ 18” x 24” → for between 100 and 150 guests
➤ 24" x 36" → for between 150 and 250 guests

The size is really a matter of personal preference, and depends on a few things. For guestbooks, consider whether you expect guests to include a message, as opposed to just a signature etc. For seating charts, consider how far guests will be standing to read them.

When in doubt, we always suggest going LARGER, rather than smaller.
