custom process

These ketubot are all completely handmade, from scratch, starting with a blank piece of paper, from the painting to the lettering.

step 1

First, look at the designs in the CUSTOM gallery to see what I can do, what you may like or bring me a design idea of your own. And choose your TEXT. From there I’ll create an estimate.

step 2

Once we have decided what you want, you send me a deposit of half the final price to secure your spot in the schedule.

step 3

I send you a sketch of the design so you can really see what you’re getting, the actual watercolors on the actual paper, the gold leaf, the ink. You approve it, or we make some adjustments.

step 4

You have your rabbi or officiant approve the text you’ve chosen, and I do a proof of it.

step 5

And finally, when everyone is happy, I make your ketubah and you enjoy it for the rest of your life.
