How does it work?

Simple! Send us a straight on snap of the front of your house (via an email attachment through contacts page ). We will design your House Portrait and send it to you as a PDF file. You can then choose to print it as a set of greetings cards and/or a picture as many times as you like!

The Design Process

Your house portrait will be hand drawn so we can add or delete basic features to give a pristine picture. Your image will then be scanned into the computer and digitally finished – which means we can give you a proof and make any minor edits at this stage, before we send it to print. We will send you a couple versions to choose from, and we can add any seasonal/non seasonal decorations if you like (completely optional). 

Your image will be scanned into the computer

How Much Does it Cost?

  • We charge £40 for each house portrait
  • A set if five greetings cards costs an additional £10 +pp
  • One A5 mounted print costs an additional £8 +pp

We will keep your design on file so all re-orders are at the basic price of £2 per card +pp. (minimum order 5 cards).


Our turn around time is usually two weeks and we will ask for £20 of the cost to be paid to secure your order.
