Can you explain the process a bit more?

Get ready for the ultimate white glove service the moment you decide to work with us. The first step after you purchase is to schedule a 15 minute call with your designer, so we can make sure we get all the details juuuust right. But don't worry, if you prefer email we can do that too! You can ask questions, go over important aspects of your design, or just gush about all the dreamy details of your wedding day. Once your designer has all the important details, they will get to work on creating your custom design. Next, you will receive your first proof via email. You will be able to send comments and edits back to your designer, and will enter into the "revision" stage. You will have three rounds of revisions to make your design perfect. Once you send your designer final approval, they will send your piece off for print production (or send you the final file if you purchase a digital print). We will keep you in the loop about when your print gets shipped out, and when it is expected to arrive. Feel free to reach out even after you receive your print if you have any questions (you probably won't since we pack our boxes with lots of helpful info and extra goodies to make sure you are all set.

Customer Reviews

Based on 128 reviews

Could not be happier with our guest book alternative. The design itself was so incredible and realistic. I customized my dress and they added our 2 dogs in it. The best part of the ordering process was the customer service. Each person I talked to was extremely helpful and responded within minutes. They were very accommodating to me being picky and making multiple changes and never seemed annoyed or bothered. When covid hit and we had to change the date on our item, they offered us a discount for re-print and were very helpful again. Could not recommend this company more. Thank you guys so much for your help!

Better than expected!

This turned out so good! I'm very excited to use this for our wedding. It's the best alternative for a guest book. We can hang it in our house after and have it to look back forever! It was fast and easy to communicate changes I wanted made. I received it quicker than expected but I also was not in a hurry to get it since my wedding is only 5 months away. Thank you so much!

We did not receive in time.

Paid for expedited shipping and was guaranteed by company we would have it. Order was placed 6 weeks before wedding.

We are so very sorry that your piece did not arrive on time. As we have let you know via email, FedEx unfortunately did not deliver as they promised, despite our team shipping this piece out with plenty of time in advance. We will continue to work with you to make sure the art that we created for you can be re-purposed and will do whatever we can on our end to make things right. It was a disastrous end-of-the-year for all postal and package carriers, and despite our team's absolute best attempts, we were not able to overcome this huge problem. Rest assured we will do our best to help in any way we can! xox Kristin and the Miss Design Berry Team


We love the canvas we ordered from Miss Berry Design. The design process was fun and the order was worth every dollar. We are framing the finished product and love that we have this memory from our wedding day that was signed by our friends and family. Thank you.

Such a Special Guest Book Alternative

We LOVED our guestbook canvas. The designers did so great with making edits in a timely manner. They give you three free revisions & our picture ended up looking just like us. We also had them add our son & two dogs. It was such a special image & even more special now that all of our loved ones have signed it. We knew we'd never go back and look at an actual guestbook again, so we wanted something special that we could display in our home for a while. The process was very quick & straightforward and all of the designers/customer service people that I talked to were so accommodating and kind.
