How colors can be customized on your Ketubah

Yes, we customize the colors of your Ketubah to detail. Whether you choose it from our chart or provide us with a pantone code, we can pick up the desired hues and embed them into the design of the Ketubah. For the watercolor work we mix the colours, and for the printed works we alter them digitally. Note that in both cases there will be variations due to the texture and variations of the designs that are, or are based on watercolor paintings. So for one hue will also be a range of light intensities. 

On request and against a small fee for postal transit, we can mail you physical proofs. However this proofing method can only make sense if you wedding date is more than 9 weeks away. 

Here are some examples of the same design with different variations of its colors:

Woodcut Papercut and Giclee Ketubah framed and unframed examples

Please see this example of a framed woodcut ketubah:

The wood is always poplar or mahogany, but it has also slight variations in color and texture being a natural material.

Since the woodcut layer is 3-4mm thick, your local framing shop will have to allow for it, but in most cases it is still easy to have a glazing layer (optional), then a window mat (also optional), the ketubah layers, and lastly a backboard to hold tight all layers.

Is there a word limit for the Ketubah texts?

We do not limit the length of the texts. However, the Ketubah size can render the text readability easier or less than easy. If you have longer texts, we do recommend a Medium or Large size Ketubah. We can also help you determine that along the process when we make the proofs.

How many colours can we select for a custom ketubah or guest book?

The number of colors featured by the chosen design is the number of custom colors included. Additional colors will be extra for any printed artwork. The original paintings can have unlimited number of colors.

What’s the difference between Giclée print and Watercolor Ketubah?

A Watercolor Ketubah is basically an original painting done by our hands, including the calligraphy, on museum quality heavyweight artist paper with permanent watercolor and gouache pigments.
The Giclee Ketubah is a printed reproduction of an existing design made on high quality archival digital paper, 300gsm. It costs less than the original of course, but it preserves the looks of a painting. It is made with outstanding care to detail and it can easily be replaced in case of damage.
They both take about 3 weeks to produce, and made to last decades due to the high quality mediums, pigments and inks we use.

What type of pen and ink should be used to sign our ketubah?

A ballpoint pen or a gel is a perfectly good option! Felt-tip and fountain pens can sometimes cause bleeding, but if they are good quality and permanent, they are as perfect. Also watercolor painting pens are also very fit to the job.
Color wise is up to you. You have to think about saddle or contrast colors, so we include a paper sample so you can give a try before deciding.
