Cross-Stitch Portraits

Now you can purchase your very own cross-stitch family portrait!

Here’s what I need in order to make your awesome cross-stitch-dreams come true:

As Much Information as Possible
I need to know as much as possible about what you want in your portrait. How many adults/children/animals/zombies/etc? What do you want them to wear? Hair colors? Eye colors? What exactly do you want everyone to wear? Do you want pimp suits with lopsided mustaches? Red glasses with a messenger bag? If you can dream it, I can make it happen. I just need details!

What about proportion? How much larger than your three year-old daughter is your giant robot?

Do you want a banner, saying, or name on your portrait? If so, what kind of style would you like? Is there a specific color or detail you would prefer?

I’m unfortunately not so wealthy I can simply give these away as gifts. I’ve put together a pricing package to help gauge costs, but special situations may result in altered prices.

The base cost is $30 for four individuals (adults, kids, pets, flying livestock, etc) and one banner or saying. The portrait will come matted and framed, and will be done on a standard off-white fabric.

  • Any additional individuals, objects, or banners/sayings are $5 each.
  • Shipping is $8, unless your needlepoint is larger than 8×10 (a standard 4-person portrait is approximately 5×7). It will arrive via USPS Priority in 2-3 days, and will have delivery confirmation (and tracking, where applicable).
  • If you want a fabric color other than off-white, please include this information when contacting me. Generally this will be an additional $3 charge.

Each needlepoint portrait (depending on size and complexity) will require 1-2 weeks to complete. I will keep you updated on my progress so you know when to anticipate your order. If you have a set date you need the portrait by, please let me know and I will do my best to accommodate you.

Got all of that? Here’s how to order:

1. Contact me!

Please send a detailed description of your portrait to Photos are welcomed and encouraged. I will calculate the total cost of your order and send you an invoice.

2. Verify the pixelated image!

Before I do any cross-stitch, I will create a pixelated version of your portrait. I will then send you the image so that you can make any adjustments or changes before I actually get started. The pixelated images look very, very, very similar to the finished product, so it is vital that you address any changes before verifying the image.

3. Submit your payment!

Once your image is verified, you will submit your payment via Paypal. I will then get started on the cross-stitch.

4. Ooh and ahh at your portrait!

As soon as the portrait is complete, you will receive a shipping confirmation and tracking information (where applicable). It should arrive 2-3 business days after you receive shipping confirmation.

5. Praise me!

Please leave feedback regarding your order on this page and brag shamelessly to all of your friends, family, and coworkers!

Thanks for your business!
