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.

Woodcut Papercut and Giclee Ketubah framed and unframed examples

Please see this example of a framed woodcut ketubah: https://www.onceuponapaper.net/blogs/blog/18671423-onceuponapaper-woodcut-ketubah-real-weddings-nicole-daniel The wood is always poplar or mahogany, but it has also slight variations in color and texture being a natural material.

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

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.
