We have been accepting pet portrait commissions for over 18 years and so have plenty of experiance helping our clients find exactly what they are looking for. We are praised for our cutomser service which we are proud of. There are many options and directions you could head with your portrait and we are always more than happy to offer help and advice and chat over your ideas at any time.
Choosing your photos
We always work from one or two good quality photos. We cant stress enough how important photos are. In an ideal world we would prefer to work with only digital cameras photos, however we understand how easy it is to snap away with a mobile or tablet these days. If you are going to use a mobile, make sure you take photos outside getting the subject close into the frame. Take a look at our Photo Tips page as clients do find it useful.
Place a Deposit
Once we have seen your photos, we often make a mockup to help decided on the final design to show how the portrait could look. Once this has been aranged, a deposit of either £500 for oil paintings or £150 for pencil drawings can be made on our prices page. We accept all major credit and debit cards online securely via Worldpay along with bank transfers and installments. Alternatively clients are more than welcome to telephone us and we can take your order over the phone. We then place your photo in our client list on our Studio Diary.
See your painting come to life on our Studio Diary
We invoice prior to starting your portrait and require the final payment in full at that point. Once the portraits are started, clients can watch them develop on our Studio Diary. This allows clients to feel part of the process and cleints can sign up to our newsletter to recieve a round up of the studio diary once a week on a friday so that they dont miss a thing! To ensure that every client is 100% happy with their portrait, when the artwork is complete, we email a final scan of the portrait for the clients approval. We scan each drawing and painting and also upload the final version to our Studio Diary. Any final amendments or alterations that clients need us to make can be done at this stage.
Framing, Shipping and Happy Clients!
We are able to provide a full bespoke framing service, to see some of our portraits framed visit our Framing Section. Once the portrait is ready to send, we flat pack very safely and securely using registered mail worldwide. We also use environmentally friendly products and packaging which can be reused or recycled.
