The safety of your artwork is super important to us! Our shipping team will make sure that your order is safely wrapped in multiple protective layers, hard-shelled in a protective shipping box, and marked “fragile.”

How much does a painting cost?

Our paintings vary in cost depending on the size and the number of subjects in the painting.
The most delicate part of each painting is capturing the faces of each subject. These detailed features take time and skill to execute. For this reason, we need to know the number of subjects in the painting, so we can determine the complexity of the painting, and price it accordingly.
For more information about pricing, visit our price page .

When do I pay for my artwork?

You will be asked to pay a 20% downpayment while placing your order. The remaining balance of 80% will be charged only after you approve the final draft of your painting.

Can you combine multiple photos into a single portrait?

Yes, we can! You can upload (or email) several photographs and we can combine subjects from each photo into a single artwork. Simply give us detailed instructions when placing your order, by using the comment box.

What if my photo is damaged or not of the highest quality?

Our artist will edit or draft according to the photos you provide in advance and confirm with you. Start working until confirmed.

If a photo requires restoration, we will do so automatically, before starting your order. If you would like to colorize a black & white photo, just mention it in the comment box during your order process.

*Please note: any details that you can share will help our editors to colorize your photo correctly (for example: “The hair should be blond and the eyes should be blue”). We will send you the colorized photo for approval before continuing. We provide this service at no extra cost to you.

How do I apply a coupon code?

You can apply your coupon code on the shopping cart page while placing your order.

Cannot upload your photo?

No worries, we’ve got you covered! If your photo is too “heavy” or is of a format that our website doesn’t accept, you can continue placing your order and send it as an attachment directly to [email protected] Our team will upload the photo to your order for you.

Why are the number of subjects limited for some sizes?

We want to ensure that you receive the highest-quality painting possible. In order to paint faces, our artists need at least 3×3 inches of canvas/paper to work with. Adding multiple subjects to smaller size canvases limits the room for the artist to clearly display facial details or background elements.

Why aren’t smaller sizes available?

We want to ensure that you receive the highest-quality painting possible. For faces, our artists need at least 2×3 inches on the canvas/paper to achieve the best level of detail you’ll be happy with. An artwork with a canvas/paper smaller than 8×10 inches will give no room to our artists to display clear facial details or background elements.

Can I choose the background for my painting?

Yes, you can! And at no extra cost to you 😉 When placing your order, you’ll have the opportunity to let us know about any changes you wish to have made to your photo including the background.
