Hi! Welcome to EmmieBean. I specialize in custom illustrations inspired by your own photograph. Find a photo that captures the essence of you, your family, friends, pet, home, or anything else that makes you smile. Email me the photo, I'll draw it, and mail you the print. Portraits start at $60 and any additional duplicates are $10 each.

Payment
EmmieBean accepts Paypal, credit card, and gift card payments made via Etsy. Once payment is received and I have received an approved photo, I'll begin your illustration.
Shipping
I ship Monday through Friday. I ship to the address provided with your Etsy order unless other arrangements are made.

USA Shipping: USPS First Class (2-5 business days). Any duplicates shipped with the original custom portrait, ship for free! If you order a duplicate and it is shipped separately from the original portrait, you will be charged again for standard shipping.

International Shipping: USPS First Class International (6-10 business days). Please note that this service does not include tracking or insurance. Any taxes or import duties are the responsibility of the buyer and have not been included.
Refunds and Exchanges
Customer satisfaction is very important to me! Unfortunately, EmmieBean cannot offer returns or exchanges on custom illustrations due to the many hours that go into making them. Once the preview is posted on etsy or emailed, customers can request minor edits to the illustration. Note: any request for edits will influence the shipping date by at least 24 hours.

//////// TIPS FOR CHOOSING YOUR PHOTO ////////
///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
Check to see that:

1. YOUR PHOTO IS BIG ENOUGH.

When drawing your portrait, I need a high-resolution, sharp photo. Sometimes, customers send me photos that are too small, or low-resolution. While I wish I could work with every photo, if a photo is too small I can't make out enough detail to draw it accurately. You might be very familiar with your loved one's face, but if I can't make out features like eyes and smiles easily when I zoom in on my computer, it won't make for a great illustration. A good test is to put the photo on your computer and zoom in a few times to ensure the features of a person's face are still as sharp as when you viewed the photo from far away. In other words, if a subject's eye looks great from far away but turns into a pixelated blur when you zoom in a few clicks, this photo won't work.

2. YOUR PHOTO WAS TAKEN BY A DIGITAL CAMERA OR A NEWER PHONE.

Digital camera photos are ideal, but camera phone photos can work too, especially iPhone photos emailed at "Actual Size." Older film pictures, Facebook, and Instagram photos are generally too low-resolution for me to work with. The best way to know is to try out the above zoom-test on your computer.

3. YOUR PHOTO IS IN FOCUS.

Blurry or out-of-focus images don't work well for illustrations because I just can't make out the details.
