When you click on an image, you will find details about the designs, and recommendations for what size to choose.
To see prices, select your options. The price can be seen under the name of the ketubah, at the top of the description.
Because tastes differ significantly, I can't tell you what you will be happiest with. I can say that if you can't decide, you won't go wrong with paper or mounted paper. The canvas and metal options are high quality and good choices, but not everyone likes them and they can be difficult to sign, especially if the signatures are against a dark background. If it were me, I would order the paper.
For detailed descriptions of each option, see Materials.
Font size is the determining factor for the size recommendations given for each design. The size recommendation is determined by using roughly 600 words total in both languages.
However, size preferences are very subjective. What is "too small" for one person, could be "too big" for another. If in doubt order the size you would prefer and ask for a real size sample with your visual proof to print. If it is not suitable, we can upgrade (or downgrade) with no problem.
Choosing a text that suits you and your relationship can be tricky. Whatever you choose, please make sure to run it past your rabbi or officiant if you are having a religious ceremony.
To see what is needed, add any ketubah to your cart. The order form will pop up. In addition to Names & Dates, couples can customize signature lines, change wording, add in custom quotes, and many other options.
What you will need to fully complete the text form:
Text choice in Hebrew and English (Hebrew only, English only, Mixing & Matching - All OK)
Names in English as you want them to appear
Parents' names in English (if you want to include them)
Hebrew names if you have Hebrew names
Secular wedding date
Number of witnesses
Designation of couple in the text (Bride & Groom, Beloved & Beloved, etc)
Signature line labels for couple & officiant
Choice of quote for ketubah
1-3 business days after you submit your order, you will receive a link to a dropbox showcase folder containing:
Because it can be a little overwhelming when you first see your ketubah, it is extremely easy to overlook text mistakes. To help couples avoid this pitfall, I provide a text only PDF, showing your text in plain fonts with easy-to-read information from your order form, answers to common text questions, comments and questions on the info provided.
There are 2-3 standard images that will be in your folder: a Print Preview, an image cropped to your text for proofreading, and a cropped 8x10 showing the actual sizes of your fonts.
Once you have approved your Visual Proof, I recommend asking a knowledgeable Jewish friend (rabbi) to look over both proofs. Involving them once you are satisfied means that they don't need to re-proof as you decide to add in middle names or correct your mother's Hebrew name, or make small changes in the wording.
