Commissioning a portrait of your animal friend couldn't be easier.
If you would like to secure your place in our client list then simply follow the steps below.
Step 1: Get in touch!
Send us at least 8 good quality, clear photographs, along with stating the style and size of portrait you would like. For the best results, please do include information about your pet, we love to hear all about them! From here Rachel will review the recived photographs and crop the chosen photograph to a 'Preview Portrait'. This will give you a glimpse of how the portrait will be structured. You will also receive an portrait due date, unless a special occasion date has already been confirmed, as well as a post price.
For further information on photographs please view our Portraits page.
Step 2: Conformation
Once a conformation email has been sent containing your Preview Portrait, and other information, follow the steps given in the email to place a 40% deposit, this can also be done through PayPal. This secures your place within our work schedule. When we have received your deposit, work will commence on your very own Pet Portrait!
*Please note that the deposit is non-refundable and your portrait may only be canceled up-to 24hrs after the deposit has been made.
Step 3: Painting & coming to you soon!
That's it, your Pet Portrait has started it's journey! You will also receive updates in how your portrait is developing, up until the final week in which the final payment is made. This then releases the portrait to be printed, wrapped onto canvas and posted to your chosen address.
... As simple as that!
However if you do have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us!
Duration & Postal service
How long will it take?
A Head Shot Portrait with a tonal blended background will take approximately 4 weeks to complete. Size depending.
A Full body portrait with a tonal blended background will take approximately 5-6 weeks to complete, this is due to the size and style of each portrait.
These time frames are only an estimate. You will receive a due date via email from us once your preview portrait has been confirmed.
Of course we can also work for a special occasion date, please do mention this when you contact us and we'll do our very best!
The price of postage is not included in our price range as it differs on the size of the canvas ordered, as well as where the Portrait needs to be sent. We use DHL Signed for service, which can take 3-5 working days. For international post, this may take up to 5-15 working days due to the location. However a quicker delivery can be selected if requested.
All shipments of our portraits need to be signed for in order to receive them.
