HOW TO ORDER
EMAIL ME TO TALK ABOUT COMMISSIONING A CUSTOMIZED KETUBAH.
Do you have a fabulous idea you would like professionally painted? Great, let’s talk! If you aren’t sure what you want yet, I am happy to work with you to create something evocative based on your love story and design preferences. I’m a classically trained artist with a Master’s Degree in Fine Art, so the possibilities for your custom ketubah design are endless! I’m devoted to making your wedding vows a meaningful and lovely expression of your connection. Email me to discuss commissioning your customized ketubah artwork. To get started, just say hello and let me know the date of your wedding: ketubah [@] artsterminal.com
THE CUSTOM KETUBAH PROCESS
It is my goal to make commissioning a customized fine art ketubah as simple and joyful as possible. It’s easy to get started:
To begin, just send an email to ketubah [@] artsterminal.com. If you already have some general ideas of what you’re looking for, let me know in your message. These days, many people use Pinterest to plan weddings. If you have mood-boards, this is a fantastic way for me to learn your style. If not, just introduce yourself, and let me know the date of the wedding. I’ll guide you from there.
Like in any great relationship, our creative ketubah process begins with communication. I’ll respond to your email with some questions to get an idea of who you are, your style and text preferences, and any dreams you may have for your custom ketubah. In this conversation, you are the muse, and I begin thinking about the best way to express your love in the wedding vow artwork. Unless you know exactly what kind of imagery you want already, I’ll come up with a few unique ideas based on your love story.
IMAGE: You can tell me which idea you like best, and also request any additions that will make the image the most meaningful for you.
TEXT: Customs vary widely between different communities. You can write your own text or I can send you relevant samples based on your beliefs.
- KETUBAH TEXT FOR ORTHODOX & CONSERVATIVE JEWS
If you are Orthodox or Conservative, I can send you a template, and then you will want to get your Aramaic or Hebrew text approved by a rabbi before sending me a finalized version for the ketubah. (The text is what makes this a kosher ketubah).
- FOR REFORM, EGALITARIAN, SECULAR, SAME SEX, QUAKER, CHRISTIAN, PAGAN, DRUID, INTERFAITH, ETC.
I can help you finalize your wedding vow text, or you can write your own! Many couples these days use the text area on their ketubah to write personal wedding vows expressing their love for each other in their own words.
SIZE AND STYLE OF THE ARTWORK: Once you know what you want and have selected from the ketubah tiers (on our pricing page), I can send you an invoice through Paypal or Venmo or create a reserved Etsy listing where you can complete your purchase (your choice).
4. CREATION & SHIPMENT
The moment we have the text ready to go, I dive into the artwork! Ideally, we begin the artwork at least 3-8 weeks before the date of the wedding. I prefer to send your ketubah LONG before the wedding date so you and the wedding planner have time to select frames and displays.
If you are purchasing a ketubah as a fabulous wedding gift for the lucky couple… you are awesome! I will email you a gorgeous gift certificate that the couple can redeem for their fine art ketubah. This is an incredible gift because they can still customize everything to their own taste, and your gift will be a part of their home and a family heirloom.
DO YOU ACCEPT RUSH ORDERS?
*Yes! Last minute ketubah designs can be delivered within 7 business days.
Do you need a ketubah at the last minute? If you still want a beautiful, hand-painted ketubah design with your own text incorporated, you’ve come to the right place! I keep a selection of hand-painted ketubot in my studio for the couples who want something created by an artist but don’t have time to commission a custom design before the wedding day.
Just contact me and I will send you a current list of pre-made originals. After you select one and place your order, I’ll help you choose the appropriate text, then ink it into your design using calligraphy or decorative handwriting (your choice).
From the moment you approve the text you would like me to use, these one-of-a-kind ketubah designs can be at your doorstep in 7 days or less. I ship worldwide, with tracking. Rush Order Ketubah Designs have made it to my clients within 3 days, in cases of extreme rush orders.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact me!
