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 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.

Better than a guestbook

I love that this is a unique way to have a “guestbook”. Guests can sign this portrait and we can hang it in our home instead of a book collecting dust on a shelf.

Christine Cue
A nice keepsake

It is a gift for my daughter and son in law. She is delighted with it and that's all that really matters. They were very nice to work with, but I was surprised to have to pay Xtra money for personalized details like her dress and the background color.

Rashin Alipour
Loved it

I was so incredibly impressed with how our canvas turned out! They were so fast at responding to my questions and I loved that. It did take longer than initially expected to get my first proof, but once I got it they were really quick making whatever changed I needed. Overall, amazing to work with and I 100% would recommend to anyone!

Hunter Irvin

I knew I did not want the basic guest book for our wedding, and I saw these and was a bit skeptical at first. But I sent all my info, even details down to the shoes and tie my fiancé was going to be wearing, and it came out perfect! I love that we are going to be able to display this in our home once the wedding is over, and be reminded of such a special day for years to come!

Tyanna Medina

I was literally in tears when I saw how beautiful our guest book came out. Everyone at Miss Design Berry was so helpful with changes and getting it just perfect I was super impressed. It came out even more beautiful than the proof shows. I can’t wait to have all our guest sign it soon.
Thank you so so much!!
