I am booking up custom orders for February and forward. For rush please ask for availability. 

Custom Ketubah

Entirely custom and handmade, from concept to lettering, painting and crafting. Pick one to start and let’s discuss the basics. 

They range in price from $1000 to $5000 depending on the size and materials involved, the complexity of design, the timeframe and degree of crafting techniques. Anything germane to you, any element or symbol you need, we can incorporate into your Ketubah.

Style. I am easy to work with and open to adjust to your requirements if you have a wedding theme for example. We can talk layout and colors, fonts, shape and size, anything basically can be altered to make your unique Ketubah. 
You can bring your own ideas or start from one as seen and add your own touch.
I am open to other artist collaboration, either for making the calligraphy or the artwork around the text. 
Your Original Ketubah commission can include any of the following materials and techniques:

- watercolor painting,
- sumi-e ink,
- pencil,
- guache,
- tempera,
- woodblock printing,
- lino hand pressed printing.

Texts:  We have a range of standard texts you can chose from, but you are welcome to bring your own Rabbi approved one. Trilingual ketubot are on the menu. 

Calligrahy:  Small or medium scale calligraphy for texts. We will adapt the size of the calligraphy to your Design and Ketubah size, or vice versa. If you fency the more serif and decorative font style against a more plain one, it will take up more space and the rest of the elements will have to adapt.

Large lettering is a design feature and can be done for titles or your names at the top of the Ketubah. 
Hand torn deckled edges - a choice. 
Recommended to be combined with flat shipping and foamboard backing. 
It's a big excitement to create your wedding ketubah and coordinated papery. Looking forward to working with you!
