Each illustration is personalised with a printed message in a choice of typeface. The text will be printed on two lines, the top line being slightly larger (eg: The Orchards / 15 Lane End, Bideford, Devon).

Your house portrait 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 more detail please order our ‘Detailed portrait’ at £70 (see listing to right). The drawing will be portrait or landscape that best suits the image. Although the house will be in black and white, we colour the sky duck-egg blue, the grass a sage green, paths stones grey and windows cream. Bright paintwork such as front doors or painted concrete will also coloured. We cannot include people in the drawing, we can include cars and pets for an extra fee.

    Quite expensive but worth every penny

    I'm rating this 'poor', but I really don't feel it was that bad. I think something between 'poor' and 'good' is more accurate. The portrait was underwhelming, it didn't have much character to it at all. It really looked like someone took the photo I sent and just rant it through some cheap filter to make it look like a drawing. It's hard to believe this was actually a hand drawn portrait. Also, I think a nice touch would be to have the artist (assuming an actual artist drew this) sign the print. Lastly, the print was SO small. For the high price paid, I just expected a bit more.

    Letterfest's response:

    We are sorry you were disappointed with your illustration. You did approve the digital proof we emailed, so if there was anything you wanted us to change or add more detail to, we could have done it at this stage. We'll take on your feedback regarding the signature, however we do not advertise this as signed and previous customers feedback have said they wanted it unsigned as they didn't like the signature! We will contact you to see if there is anything we can do Best wishes Wendy LETTERFEST
