Digital Custom Print
After I get feedback from you, I will prepare a single image for you. It can be tweaked in minor ways, but will basically be your ketubah. At that point I will also have some suggestions for fonts. (if you have a style in mind, let me know so I can make sure to include it).
Other things I need from you:
Display font for quote (see gallery 1 fonts for a list)
Size 20x24" on Paper (recommended - it can go smaller or larger, but this size is really what it was designed for)
The first gallery is the ketubah as I would recommend it. These images are the ketubah as it would be if I were preparing it according to my best judgment. The additional options in the next gallery down are ideas that I considered as possibilities. I'm sharing them so that you can decide what works best for you. Ultimately, you have to live with the ketubah, so it is your preferences that matter. My recommendation reflects my preferences and I won't hold it against you if you decide that an element I love just doesn't do it for you!
Text layout - you originally specified stacked layout. (Of course I can still do that!) I chose the alternating paragraph style here for several reasons: The Mrs Eaves font and Shofar are very well balanced and still easily readable. Fonts that contrast more need to be in entirely separate blocks or alternating lines. The next reason has to do with the shape of the border. I tried layout with the text following the border in a natural shape and it just didn't work with these fonts (calligraphy or sans serif would be the way to go, if you want that). These fonts really need orderly paragraphs. In order to keep the same width for each section, the size was just right. The blocks didn't flow visually in quite the way I liked.
The white background really makes the colors vibrance stand out.
The background really changes the feeling of the art and our perception of color. I loved all three but compromised on the medium color.
Because I saved the wash as a separate image and then layered them, it appears darker and more orange than it does in the original art. If you like this option, I would be happy to send an additional preview where it is more accurate.
