Description

A breathtakingly beautiful birthday, new baby, Christening or naming ceremony heirloom gift – a personalised filled initial papercut in Holmes-made's distinctive, original design.

These pieces are drawn by hand with a pencil and cut entirely by hand using a scalpel. No machines or stencils are used. Cut from beautiful lightly textured white paper, your chosen letter or name will be filled with personalised items which are all carefully cut and coloured to your exact specification. You can choose any theme – previous examples include nautical, circus, rainbows, flowers, transport, dinosaurs, birthplace and family history, fairies and fairytales – or simply elements that you know your child will enjoy looking at.

Requiring many hours of painstaking work, these completely bespoke original art works are breathtaking in their detail, providing a focal talking point in your home. They make for a truly unique keepsake gift. Designed to grow with your child, these pieces are timeless in their design and can be personalised for any occasion; from the birth of a newborn, child's birthday, adoption or significant milestone birthday present. Please note I will not cut elements which are copyrighted, such as Disney.

I have been creating these pieces for four years and have many testimonials from happy customers who delight in the bold colours and intricate details of these gorgeous pieces.

The name or initial will be cut from a piece of heavy, textured white A4 paper measuring 210x297mm and can be framed in a standard A4 frame (not supplied). The price includes a the name or initial itself with all coloured infills. If you would like additional wording beneath, such as date of birth and weight, or location and date of Christening, then this is chargeable at £15.

The purchase and design process:
Once the purchase has been made, I will email you to discuss everything you would like to be included and set up an additional personalised listing for framing, or additional items, if required). Once payment has been received, a proof drawing will be created and emailed to you within two working days; once this has been approved then cutting will commence.

Item will be supplied unframed and unmounted. Professional framing is available at an additional charge (around £35 depending upon wood choices, plus £15 UK P&P).

_______


Pricing information:
I'm afraid that no discounts are available for a shorter name or initial as these still require the same amount of work as a longer name (I adjust the size accordingly). If you would like to upscale the order to A3, this can be done for an additional amount which will be chargeable and invoiced separately as a different listing. Please contact me for a quote if required.
