The charm and uniqueness of each block is determined by the different grains and imperfections in each piece of wood. The distressing technique used will purposely produce an image that looks aged and worn with slight imperfections that will give the piece a rustic charm and also make the piece truly one of a kind.
Send your photo as a jpeg file attachment in an email to forgetmenotkeepsake [!at] hotmail.com. Once payment and photo have been received. I will contact you via email or photo text to help you determine the details of your block. You will be asked to choose paper colors and style ( such as Rustic, Formal, Whimsical, Holiday, etc.), how to personalize it and a ribbon color.
Keep in mind that the better the pictures the better your block will turn out so choose photos that have good lighting, contrast and color. (You can send a color photo and we will copy it in color, black and white or sepia according to your choice)
Once payment and useable pictures have been received, I will contact you via email regarding your choices and we will work together to make your block the way you want it. (I will send you examples of options) Keep in mind these are custom orders and take time to make them just perfect for you, so.... please allow 2-4 weeks for delivery. Plan early for holidays and special occasions to make sure they arrive in plenty of time. An additional service charge for rush orders may apply.
Other Block Options:
You may do your photo in color, black and white or sepia tone
