The Story of my Love Affair with All Things Digital

My name is Jennifer York. I’m a midwestern gal and a self-proclaimed tech junkie who has had a long-time love affair with pixels. I’m a web and graphic designer by trade with over 10 years design studio experience. I found my passion in graphic design and web development when I designed a website in 2003 for my wedding.

I own and operate Digital Hive EcoLogical Design and have self-taught myself everything from SEO to mobile app development. I can honestly say I love what I do, especially my work here on Etsy!

I started creating house portraits in 2016 when I went looking to buy one for a gift. I couldn't find any that I really liked.

And then a lightbulb went off. I can do this! Well, it wasn’t as easy as I had thought to create a realistic looking house portrait. It took me several days and countless hours in front of my computer to get my method just right.

Long story short, my gift recipient loved it and I thought others would too!

You can find me at all of these places on Etsy:

Pen + Pixel (custom art + cards)

Jenny Design Studio (frame mockups, svg files, logos)

Jenny Design Studio Clothing (clothing mockups)

Frequently asked questions
Custom House Watercolor Photo Tips

• Take the picture straight on
• Avoid shadows
• Clean off your front porch
• Shut all windows
• Open or shut all blinds (keep it uniform across all windows)
• Move cars from the driveway

There is no need for you to crop the photo before sending it to me. In fact, it’s actually much better if you do no cropping at all. Depending on the size of the print you order, I will need to crop your photo.

Print Sizes

Please see the individual listing for available print sizes. If you don't see the size you're looking for, please message me and I'll happily size it to any size you need. No charge!

Where can I print my digital download?

Oooh so many options! You can print at home, a local photo lab or print shop, or order from an online lab like Shutterfly and have your art delivered to your door!
I also offer printing on high-quality paper and canvas. Please see the "I'd like you to print my order" FAQ below or the individual listing for more in-depth info.

How do I send you my photo?

Once you checkout on Etsy, you'll receive a receipt coming from that will contain a link to where you can upload your photo.
If you don't see it in your inbox, check your spam folder. All kinds of stuff lands in there!
If your order comes in within normal business hours, I will send you a message with the link. Weekends can be very busy for me as a mom of three girls, but not to worry. As soon as I'm back in the office I will send you the link if I see your photo has not yet been uploaded.

I'd like you to print my order. What are my options?

Currently I have 3 options when printing your order.

1. High-quality archival paper
Check the individual listing for paper details as they vary from product to product. I either use a museum-quality, 100% cotton archival paper or a super-premium luster paper.

2. Canvas
Canvases are professionally printed and stretched on artist-grade canvas and come ready to hang. They are 1.25" canvas and are excellent quality.

3. Canvas in a frame
These are the same as my traditional canvas above, but also include a real wood frame surrounding the canvas in either walnut or black. Depending on the size you choose, you have a choice of .5" or 1.25" frame width.

When will my order ship?

For most of my custom products, it takes me between 2-4 days to create, but please see the individual listing you are interested in for exact details.
After your item is created, I will send you a proof via Etsy convo. As soon as you approve the proof, your art will be sent to print and will be ready to ship in 2-4 days.
Standard shipping is free and can take between 5-12 days. This is an estimate as once your order ships, it is out of my hands and we are at the mercy of the USPS.

If you'd like to upgrade your shipping from standard to expedited, you can do so here:
➼ Paper Prints (domestic) >>
➼ Canvas & Framed Canvas >> (domestic)
➼ International >>

I'd like to remove or add objects from my photo

I offer custom Photoshop work. However, that is not included in the price of the listing.

Some common things customers request:
- remove security sign
- remove real estate sign
- color grass green
- color sky blue
- add flowers and foliage

More advanced Photoshop work:
- remove car from driveway
- remove neighbor's house
- "trim" shrubs or trees that are covering the house

Before you purchase the Photoshop add-on, I'd love to see your photo first. Then I can give you an accurate quote on how many edits it will take to achieve what you are looking for.

I need a gift fast! What are my options?

I'm a last minute shopper. I totally get it.

If you'd like me to create a rush proof for you, please purchase my Rush Processing add-on and I will get you a proof the same or next day.

After I rush process your order, the standard shipping times will apply unless you purchase an expedited shipping option.

Proof Policy

A proof will be sent to you via Etsy messages. If you do not approve your proof within 72 hours, your item will be finalized and sent to printing and shipping as is. No changes can be made after this point in time.
