About

The Story of our Personalized Art Prints

Picture It Personal gives you or someone you care about a truly unique way to celebrate a special love or memorable moment. The first step in creating your art is using a camera to capture a beautiful scene. Next your names are digitally added by hand using photo editing software. Your personalization will appear as though it was always a part of the image. The personal attention given to each order ensures that you receive a very special product you will thoroughly enjoy. All prints and canvas gallery wraps are professionally produced with the highest quality materials for a lifetime of beauty (archival rating of 100+ years).

About the company...
I'm April, the artist behind Picture It Personal. I'm a self-taught photographer inspired by the beauty I see in the natural world. Hunting for an inspiring shot is a passion that has never left me. In 2009 my family relocated to New York and I had the chance for a fresh start in my professional life. This business began when a friend and I were brainstorming for ways that I could bring in income for my young family by using my photography skills- something I had always dreamed of doing! The idea that emerged was to create photo art by infusing images with personal meaning, resulting in a product that people could connect with in their own unique way. We looked around and saw so many personalized gift ideas out there... but not many in the way of quality photographic art. My creative small business was born. The first few years have brought some exciting opportunities including licensing deals and filming for ABC's Shark Tank ("impossible to scale" said Kevin...but that's OK because being handmade and personal is important to this company. A mass produced personalized art print just wouldn't be the same). It’s been wonderful to watch the business grow and change over time, and it has brought me joy to create something that touches the lives of others.

As a solopreneur I am intimately involved with every aspect of the business. Not only will you be receiving a one-of-a kind image that I have photographed and edited by hand with my “digital darkroom” tools, but you will also receive personalized service that’s hard to find at the big-box stores. I know how important each and every customer is to my business. I do everything I can to make sure you receive a product you love and give you the personal attention you deserve.

Frequently asked questions

Are frames included?

Frames are not included. Frames pictured in listings are for example only. Mats are available for the 5X7 and 8X10 sizes only. Canvas wraps do not require frames- they come ready to hang. See link in "item details" for canvas wrap listing.

How do I personalize it? I don't see where to put in my instructions.

After you add your product to the cart and during the checkout process you will see a box labeled "note to seller". Please leave your instructions for personalization there.

How are prints shipped?

Smaller prints are sealed inside a clear bag to protect against moisture damage and shipped in a rigid cardboard mailer with a cardboard insert to protect against bending. Prints larger than 11x14 are also sealed in a clear bag and shipped in a rigid tube.

Can you rush my order?

Please contact me if you would like a rush on your order and if possible I will shorten the processing time. Processing time is generally 2-4 business days. This does not include shipping times.

What size frame will I need for the matted prints?

Mats are available for the 5X7 and 8X10 inch sizes.
5X7's are matted to 8X10 inches so you will need an 8X10 inch frame.
8X10's are matted to 11X14 inches so you will need an 11X14 inch frame.

Can I give you my own picture that you can personalize?

I offer custom work for an additional $30. Please contact me for details and email your highest resolution image to info@pictureitpersonal.com so I can determine if it is an image that I can work with.

How do you create the images? Do you actually write in real sand?

All of my art is 100% digitally created. No trees or actual property were altered in any way. I use photo editing software to make it appear as though your personalization were always a part of the image. The carvings are digitally drawn by hand to give a more realistic look. No automated process or fonts are used to produce a fake-looking image. The time and care given to each order ensure that you receive a truly unique image you will thoroughly enjoy.

How do I order the digital file or canvas wrap?

Please see "item details" for links to the listings for the digital file and canvas wrap options. Or you can visit the shop section CANVAS/DIGITAL/SETS. You do not need to purchase the original print listing in addition to these.
