Made in Britain
can be personalised
For a unique wedding gift, why not commission a beautiful sketch of their venue, hand-drawn by local artists working in North Devon.
The drawing style is clean and contemporary with the sky and surroundings picked out in a range of colours. You can provide your own photo after ordering, just upload them by going to 'my orders' and submitting an 'order enquiry', or we can work from Google street view or a weblink (see below for instructions).
Every illustration can be further personalised with a printed message. Choose from three typefaces (script, handwritten or a modern sans-serif). Your text will be printed on two lines, the top line being a slightly larger size eg: 'Mandy & Russ / St Michael's Church, 5th July 2012.'
If you want to include two images we can also print both the church and reception venue in our double portrait.
How to provide a photo:
After ordering go to 'my orders' on your notonthehighstreet.com account. Submit an 'order enquiry' then upload a digital photo here. Or we can work from an image on a website, just send us the link. Or use Google street view and enter the address. Click on the street view of the road or drag the yellow stick man onto the map. Use the pointers to locate your house. When you have a good view, click the link icon, copy the link and send it to us.
About the illustration:
Your illustration will be hand-drawn black and white sketch of the property, not a computer generated image, so we can add/remove things you don’t want eg: cars or lamp posts, and we won't include dustbins, satellite dishes etc. We will sketch the view from the photograph (ie the same perspective). It’s a simplified drawing of the house but if you want more detail we also offer offer different styles- please see the 'see sellers complete range' on right of this page. 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 stone or grey and windows cream. Bright paintwork such as front doors or painted concrete will also be coloured. We cannot include people in the drawing.
If you've asked for a digital proof, your illustration will be uploaded via your 'order enquiry' for you to check.
