A beautiful black & white sketch of someone’s home based on a photo provided by you, hand drawn by artists working in Devon. We can sketch your family home, wedding venue, car or pet - the perfect personalised gift for friends or family. The lines are dark grey printed on a light stone background.
Every illustration can be further personalised with a printed message. Choose from 3 typefaces (script, handwritten or a modern sans-serif). Your text will be printed on 2 lines, the top line being a slightly larger size eg: The Orchards / 15 Lane End, Bideford, Devon.
How to provide a photo
Send us your photo - either upload with the order or email it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Or we can work from an image on a website, just send us the link. Or use Google Street View - Go to Google.com, click on ‘Maps’ 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 & 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 a ‘Detailed portrait’ version or a coloured Version in our 'House Portrait'
If you've asked for a digital proof, a proof will be emailed prior to printing.
