The Story of our Personalized Art Prints

I am a photographer inspired by the beauty I see in nature, and since I was a young girl I’ve enjoyed trying to capture it with my camera. I started this company with the idea of creating a unique photo product that people could connect with in their own way. My hope is that my personalized art will help you to celebrate a special love or moment.

I began by opening my shop here on Etsy.com which was the first shop of its kind on the platform. 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).

As a "solopreneur" I take your order from initial idea to final product. You will receive a one-of-a-kind image that I have photographed and edited by hand with my “digital darkroom” tools. Not only will your personalization appear as realistic as possible, but also your wall art will be one-of-a-kind! All prints and canvas gallery wraps are professionally produced with the highest quality materials for a lifetime of beauty (archival rating of 100+ years). You will also enjoy personalized service that’s impossible to find at the big-box stores. I know how important each and every customer is to my business-- I will make sure you receive a product you love. I’m looking forward to creating photo art just for you! - April

Frequently asked questions

Are frames included?

Frames are not included as part of the image listing. Framed prints can be purchased by following the link to the framed print option in the image description, or this page https://www.etsy.com/listing/519953082/framed-personalized-print-choose-any?ref=shop_home_active_1. Canvas wraps do not require frames- they come ready to hang. See link in the image description for the canvas wrap option.

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/FRAMED. You do not need to purchase the original print listing in addition to these.

Can I see a preview?

Because I create these individually there is no automatic preview. However after purchase I can email a proof at no extra charge. Edits are free of charge. Please just let me know that you would like a proof when you order. Your proof will be emailed within two days. Please check your spam folder if you don't receive it. I will wait to ship your order until I have your approval. If I don't hear from you within 5 days of sending your proof I will ship your order.
