WOW WOW WOW this is amazingly beautiful. The artist worked with us to be sure all wording and Hebrew names were correct and asked us to be sure our Rabbi approved before going to print. Arrived safely is a tube. We can't wait to hang this.

Such a beautiful Ketubah - these online photos do not give it justice! The details are exquisite and the colors vivid. We received multiple compliments and couldn't be happier. Naomi was also very accommodating. She personalized the script to our specific family situation, provided multiple text choices, and gave clear instructions for care/maintenance. Thank you Naomi!

About

A closet full of hats

I like to say I have had many lives, and worn many different hats. Every one was different and magnificent and figuratively speaking I have been able many times to refashion and old hat or two into a new one to suit each new life as it came my way.

I grew up in a family of very creative people, so I had inspiration all around me from a very early age. I also come from a long line of entrepreneurial types so I had role models galore. And no lack for cheer leaders for encouragement.

I don't think I can remember a time that I was not making things or drawing or painting something. It wasn't until I was much older though, already a mother (and a few lives under my belt), that my dream of going to art school came true. My husband and I were living in Israel, on a small Kibbutz in the Western Galilee called Adamit.

I designed my first ketubah for friends about that time. I can hardly believe it, but that was — more than 35 years ago! In those days I had a drawer full of tiny brushes and a well used box of watercolors. But as I was being molded into a designer, I was introduced to computers, and a new world of digital techniques expanded my toolbox to such a degree that I eventually gave up my physical brushes and paints completely.

In the mean time, we moved back to Canada, and I had a wonderful design career for nearly 25 years and I designed a few more ketubot for friends along the way. But when our son announced his engagement, I sat down at my computer, and as they say — the rest is history.

Working with my son and his bride to create a lasting expression of their love for each other — a work of art that would find a place in their home — well — what can I tell you? This is a mother's dream come true!

It also changed me. It was time to get back to something I loved — Ketubah design!

And that is how Fresh Ketubah was born.

That was six years ago, and a lot has happened since then. I have retired from my design life and am embracing the world by trying to see as much of it as I can. And I have opened this shop to share my work with you!

Why Fresh Ketubah you ask? Well, I thought it was time to breathe some fresh ideas into an age old tradition.

I hope you will take a few minutes to browse through my shop, and if you see something you like, I would love to hear from you!

The fine print ;)

All of my designs are digitally printed with archival inks on 100% cotton rag paper. Although I have done everything in my power to present each item as accurately as possible, all monitors preview colors differently. As a rule of thumb, my work is quite saturated and very pleasing to the eye. If you are trying to match to a particular color scheme, event theme or wall color, send me an email (naomibroudo[at]gmail[dot]com). I am sure we can find a way to make it work.

Payment
I am set up for payment through paypal, and all major credit cards. If you need some help navigating the purchase process, I am sure I can help.
Shipping
Ketubot and most prints ship in tubes.

All shipments are by UPS or US Postal Service unless other arrangements are made. Allow 5-7 days for delivery domestically and 2-3 weeks for shipments to Canada or other international locations. IMPORTANT: Most orders from my shop are reserved listings. If you have provided me with a worksheet, I will use the address you provided for shipping. If you are purchasing a listing directly from my shop, I will use the address provided by paypal unless you specify otherwise.

I will email you when your shipment goes out with tracking information.

Taxes and customs:
My shop is in New York and New York has a very complicated sales tax collection policy for orders delivered in New York. I will base sales tax on your order, on the delivery address.

Please note that buyers are responsible for any and all duties and customs charges that may be incurred on international deliveries.
Refunds and Exchanges
Ketubot
Every ketubah is a custom order, therefore I am unfortunately not able to refund or exchange after final approval. I design and typeset each one, and take extreme care to be sure that they are beautifully printed, packed carefully and delivered on time. In the event that there has been damage in shipping, or you are unhappy with the print quality, please get in touch immediately and I will take care of the problem.

Prints
I do not have a refund or exchange policy in place, but it is very important to me that you are very happy with your purchase. If there is a particular problem, please get in touch and we can discuss options.
Additional policies and FAQs
All of my work is customizable to your needs. Your dream is my dream project. Please contact me through convo, or email (naomibroudo[at]gmail[dot]com) with any project large or small. I am up for the challenge!

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

Your dream is my dream project! Any and all items in my shop are customizable. Contact me by convo or by email to discuss details and pricing. My email address is naomibroudo@gmail.com

Care instructions

All of my listings are professionally printed Giclee prints on archival acid free 100% cotton rag paper with archival inks. With proper care, they should remain as vivid and beautiful in 100 years as they look the day you receive them. But if hung in direct sunlight, the colors will degrade over time. Care should also be taken in choosing acid free matte board to extend the life of your family heirloom.

What are my shipping costs?

All ketubot ship domestically to anywhere in the US for $15. Shipments to Canada are $25. for shipping prices to Europe and other international destinations, please send me your full shipping address by convo, and I will get back to you with pricing.

What size should I buy?

This is very personal, but the first step is mapping the size so you know what you are dealing with. I have put together a tutorial for making a mock up of the size of your ketubah so that you can think about what it will look like hanging in your home. You can download it here:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/mamlxj88pgl8q70/Mapping%20ketubah%20sizes.jpg?dl=0

Keep in mind that you may be adding a matte and the dimension of the frame when making your mock up.

Do you have Parents' gifts to match my ketubah?

Yes! I have Parents' gifts to match each and every ketubah that is available at my shop. I have some examples in this section of my shop where you can check here for pricing:

https://www.etsy.com/shop/NaomiBroudo?ref=hdr_shop_menu§ion_id=18854340

I am creating them as they are requested. Just convo me and let me know which design you are interested in and I can show you a mock up.

Do you have special texts for same sex unions?

That is a good question and I have thought about this a lot. I believe that all of my modern texts are appropriate for any and all unions. But since Hebrew is a language that treats masculine and feminine words and people differently, I do have special versions of my texts where the Hebrew has been modified to properly designate each partner.

How do I get a chance to review the ketubah texts you offer?

Please contact me by convo or by email (naomibroudo@gmail.com) and I will send you a link to download my text offerings as well as my worksheet. Ketubah texts are copyright to each ketubah artist. For that reason, I prefer to send them to you personally rather than to offer them for viewing at my shop or on my website.

Can I provide you with a text I have found online?

There is a long and complicated answer to this question which is asked often. Let me try and clear this up. Ketubah texts are almost always copyright to the ketubah artist that offers the text online. For that reason, it is almost never possible to use a text you find online unless you receive permission from the owner. This may be easy or there may be a charge involved.

Downloading a pdf or a jpg from the internet provides only a picture of the ketubah text. I need to be able to manipulate the text to customize it for your personalized Ketubah. Without a proper text file in both Hebrew and English, and permission from the owner of the text, I am not able to use a text you have found online.

Can I write my own ketubah text?

Yes you can! I provide a translation service if you can not provide me with your own Hebrew translation. The price for translation is based on the length of your text. I will provide you with an estimate after reviewing your text. There is no additional cost to provide your own English text as long as you provide it to me in a word docx. or in the body of an email.
