Designed for DIY, these prepared ketubah texts allow artists to focus on their art, rather than text preparation and calligraphy.
Included in your order:
Take the guesswork out of choosing a size. Visual proofs come with a cropped to 8x10 inches actual section of your ketubah to print on any printer, so that you can see the real size and change your order before printing, if needed.
Please allow 5-10 business days for your order, longer if you need additional time to finish your text, get a rabbi's approval, etc.
Would you like your art to be added to a Text Only Ketubah and printed along with the text? With the large variety of artists creating digital media, a wonderful personal ketubah is yours to make.
The art must be
Please send the art in jpg or png via your favorite file sharer with the color settings embedded to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note that you may want to purchase Custom Colors so that your fonts are legible if your art doesn't leave blank space (a text area) behind the text.
You get 2 digital proofs:
Text proof for content
Visual proof showing how it will look when printed
You can specify the dimensions by purchasing CUSTOM LAYOUT. Specific proportions are available by request. By default, the largest shapes are sized to allow for a 1" framing margin and a 4" border, with 3/4" blank space around the text. The medium and small are proportionally scaled down.
For custom sizes, choose the next larger closest to your size. (Communicate directly to discuss exact dimensions).
The paper is 100% cotton, low acid, archival, very nice weight at 300 g, bright white - perfect for ink, gouache, watercolor, acrylic, or colored pencil. Mounted paper is the same high quality gorgeous paper with a stiff backing.
The canvas is white gessoed canvas treated with a waterproof matte UV coating to protect the lettering from fading. It is suitable for acrylic painting, especially when applied without much water on the primary layers. Application of a finishing product to preserve the paint is recommended. (Because I don't use oils myself, I can't say how it will react to oil paint).
You will be prompted to choose your text (and add names & dates) after adding your ketubah to your shopping cart.
