Illustrashun Prints Journey

Here is a little bit of a background to what inspired Illustrashun to come to life. 

My Brother living in the United Kingdom welcomed his first child to the world last year. Becoming an uncle for the first time all the way from Sydney, Australia. I wanted to make sure that I could send them the perfect gift; something personalised, unique and something they could keep and look back on in years to come. After taking time searching and brainstorming gift ideas, I thought of putting my own spin on personalised prints to frame and display at home. Something to commemorate such a beautiful day, why not pinpoint all the qualities that made the day so special. In years to come my family can keep track of my nephews weight; height; time he was born; where he was born; star sign; birthstone and other distinctive qualities. After creating my own and sending it home for my nephew and family – they absolutely adored how special the gift was.

After bringing joy to my own family, I thought why not do the same for others. That’s when I thought of the idea of creating my own little business, Illustrashun. Something I had never done before! I wanted to take the leap and try something new. Making this store is the perfect opportunity to use my creativity to bring joy to families everywhere. Here you can order personalised and unique prints that you can tailor yourself. Choosing your own colours; details and styles that you want to share with others. All prints will be printed on high quality paper and sent out as soon as possible to ensure that gifts are there for your bundles of joy. Whether you’re buying for your family or someone else’s, you can make these prints really specialised and significant. You can also purchase gift cards for those with littles ones still on the way. Please feel free to leave any feedback and ideas for me to take on board, it will be much appreciated.

Whether you’re miles away like I was, or there with your loved ones. I hope these gifts bring love for you; your friends and your family.

Can I get a preview of the portrait before I order?

Our talented team of artists spends lots of time creating your unique illustration from scratch.

If you require any changes or edits to your illustration, simply reply back to us via email, and our artist will revise your illustration and return it to you ASAP. Easy as!

Is my photo ok?

We can usually use almost any photo including: 

✔️ Old photos

✔️ Screenshots

✔️ Photos of photos

✔️ Photos with watermarks

✔️ Photos are taken from any social media platforms 

✔️ Photos that are a little out of focus

✔️ Photos that are a little dark

If you are concerned that the photo you would like to use is very low quality, please get in touch with us and our customer service team will find a solution for you. 

I chose to receive my illustration as a digital file, how will I receive it?

If you have selected "digital download (JPG)", your finished illustration will be emailed directly to you, please make sure you check out with your correct email address as this is the address I will use. You will receive both a PDF and a JPEG file.

I'd love to get my pet illustrated too, can you include them?

Yes, we love pooches and kitties and all things feathered and furred. Be sure to include them as a "person" when placing your order. 

Can you work from two different photos to create one illustration?

We can merge two separate photos and put them all together in one illustration, the photos should be the same or similar angle (for example; all people standing, taken front on at eye level). 

Please note that we are unable to change the positioning of a person, for example, from sitting to standing or vice versa.

Can I choose a specific coloured background?

Of course! Please use the note section at checkout to let us know what you had in mind and we'll customize your background.
