One of our newest prints is one of our favourites. Our Bespoke Illustrated Portrait of your Front Door has been selling like hot cakes - and our in house illustrator, Lizzie, is the person you need to thank if you've ever had one!
It all starts with when we see your order's first thing in the morning. 9am (sharp!), we'll transfer the image of your door to the ever-wonderful Photoshop, and that's where the magic begins. Depending on the style you've chosen, will depend on how Lizzie illustrates it - but we can safely tell you that every single door is digitally illustrated with lots of detail, care, and love.
A giant cup of tea, a lot of concentration and a steady hand is essential for the illustration process. It all depends on what style you've chosen as to how the process begins. If you've chosen the Ink and Wash design, it's just a simplistic yet detailed outline with, quite literally, a wash of soft teal throughout the background of the door. The Contemporary design is somewhat similar, but instead of the wash of ink, it's a vibrant navy background with a simple white outline illustration of the door. The watercolour design requires a lot more detail and even more concentration, as this is coloured with beautiful colours that are pulled out of your photo.
By this point, Lizzie has finished her 2nd cup of tea and all she can see every time she blinks, is doors. After the illustration is complete, she'll then add your details, whether that be the name and/or number of your house. Even if you think your house doesn't have the prettiest of names, we can ensure that Lizzie will make it look absolutely beautiful on paper with her distinctive typographic skills.
Seeing your extracts for what goes under the print is our favourite bit. We love seeing the sincere messages, like 'making a house a home since 2016', but we also love giggling at the funny ones, like 'keeping Mum's tidy house messy since 2007'. We guess you could say this is the final bit of design for Lizzie, as it's placed neatly under your address to where ever she thinks it looks best (#lizzieknowsbest).
After this process, your print will be sent to our local, professional framers who will ensure your framed print is perfect for you. Securely packed and well protected, your frame will be with you within 5-7 days prior to ordering it!
We (especially Lizzie) always look forward to receiving your orders and photos of your gorgeous front doors, so make sure you keep them coming!
