Art in Words

We are Denis and Megan, the husband and wife team behind Kin & Caboodle. We create art in your words from our home studio in the Pacific Northwest.

We are digital artists. Instead of using traditional supplies like a pencil or paintbrush, we create our art on a computer with modernized tools, such as Illustrator, Photoshop, and a tablet and stylus. Our designs are inspired by a variety of sources, including time-honored symbols of love and family, contemporary design, and nature.

We began making custom typography in 2012 as a method of creating deeply personal art. We shared our work with others, and it quickly gained momentum as way of producing meaningful gifts that celebrate life's important milestones. We love creating for special occasions, and are honored to have our artwork hanging in homes and businesses around the world.

We are hands-on participants in every step of the production process. This allows us to ensure the quality of every print that carries our name. Once a design has been digitally created, we print it in our studio using professional equipment and best-in-class, archival-quality materials. The result is a fine art print that will last for generations.

Personalized art is made to order, and unframed prints are typically ready to be shipped in 2-5 days. Please note this is a rough estimate, and the art may be shipped sooner or later depending on the number of revisions required.

Professionally framed art and gallery wrap canvases require an additional 2-4 business days for production.

Need your art in a hurry? Please let us know, and we will do our best to meet your deadline.

All unframed prints are shipped USPS or UPS depending on weight. Tracking is included.

Most packages arrive 3-7 business days after shipment, but during high volume shipping periods, please allow 10-14 days for your package to arrive. If, after two weeks, your package hasn't arrived, please let us know so that we may send a replacement.

Expedited shipping is available upon request for an additional fee.


Shipping to Canada is available for a flat $30 fee. This is for expedited service and applies to all unframed prints, canvases, and framed artwork. Your item will be delivered within 5-10 days of shipment.

In order to provide the best possible experience for our customers, all other international orders require digital download for delivery. We will provide high quality digital download files for you to have printed by your local printer. This allows you to receive your artwork much more quickly and without hefty international shipping and customs fees.
Refunds and Exchanges
We stand behind our craftsmanship and guarantee our items to be free of defects. In fact, we will do whatever we can to ensure you love your new art! If there are any concerns with your purchase, please contact us within five days of delivery and we will work together to find a solution.

Found a typo or misspelled name in your personalized art? If the typo is due to our error, we will correct the mistake and ship your revised art immediately, free of charge. If the typo was not due to our error (it was sent to us on the word list), we can correct the design and re-print for a small fee to cover material costs. The fee ranges from $20-35 for paper prints, but can be considerably higher for gallery wrap canvases.

Any items that are damaged in transit will be replaced immediately, free of charge. It may be necessary to send us photos of the damaged packaging and item.

Ultimately, we ask that you please communicate with us about any issues that may arise. We will work together to find a satisfactory solution.
Additional policies and FAQs
Colors may vary slightly due to differences in monitors. Our monitors and printers are professionally calibrated, so rest assured that the colors of your item will appear exactly as intended. If trying to match a color perfectly, please ask for a printed sample.

We may choose to take photos of your order for promotional use. If you prefer that we not use or display photos of your art in this manner, please let us know when the order is placed.

Frequently asked questions

How do I get my words to you?

Our Getting Started Questionnaire is designed to help gather the information we need to create your art, and provides space for you to list your words. Please copy and past this URL into your browser to view the questionnaire:

How many words should I provide?

We've created designs with less than 10 words, and others with hundreds of words. Our word art is very accommodating, and there’s not necessarily a magic number of words you should provide. Just send us what you have, and we will adjust font sizes or repeat words, if necessary, to fill the design.

Will I see the design before you print it?

Yes. We will provide you with a digital proof before printing the art. You will have the opportunity to review the design and request revisions. We will only print the art once you have approved the design.

Can you group families together?

Our personalized word art designs are not always a good fit for a literal family tree hierarchy, so we place words (names) randomly to maximize the aesthetics of the design.

Can each word be used only once?

Yes. Sometimes, if a design is not filled by the provided words, or has awkward empty spaces, we may repeat words for aesthetics. In some cases, we can add leaves to help fill the empty space, or you can provide additional words to include in the design.

When will I receive my order?

Proofs are available within two business days. Allow 1-2 days for each round of revisions. Unframed prints are shipped the business day following approval.

Most prints are approved and are ready to ship within 3-7 days of receiving the order and completed questionnaire. This can vary widely from client to client and largely depends on the number of revisions necessary.

Framed prints and gallery wrap canvases require 2-4 business days for production.

Can you RUSH my order?

For the fastest service possible, consider ordering a digital print that you can download and have printed locally.

If you need your order to be rushed, please contact us before submitting it. Let us know which item you plan to order, when you need to receive it, and where the item will be shipped. We'll check our current workload and let you know what rush options are available.

How many revisions am I allowed?

To ensure your design is perfect, we provide unlimited revisions until the artwork is approved.
