Pet Portraits

A pet portrait starts with photos e-mailed or mailed to us.  If you bring the pet to us we will take the pictures. We crop and size the photo we believe will work best, and then email that photo to you. If you approve we will then create the portrait. When completed we will deliver it locally or ship anywhere in the country. Shipping costs and sales tax are not included in the price. Pet portraits are paid for when delivered. If you are not satisfied, you do not have to pay. The entire process takes approximately four weeks. The price for a single portrait is $160, and for two pets on one plaque the price is $250.
