Custom personalized and signed print option
Custom Signed and Personalized Option
If you have an occasion coming up, or there's someone you would like to buy a unique gift for, add the print and this special option to your shopping cart. I will have the print shipped to my address. Sign it with your special message, add my signature, and then ship it on to you.
This can take 4-5 weeks: print, ship, personalize, ship, receive.
So give yourself plenty of time.
I sign my original artwork - so that signature is included on all of my prints.
But if you would like an original signature and a dedication or memorable note, I'm happy to provide it. I just need to cover the additional shipping and handling this extra step requires.
*For the moment, this offer is only good in the US, and on unframed prints.
I've custom signed many charts for clients while they were on vacation and I was living in the islands. Most like to add the name of their boat and a date. Those purchased as gifts often have a greeting or best wishes: "Best Wishes Bill and Sue, from Captain John." "Congratulations Jane! Love Bre". "Home Sweet Home Is On The Beach!" A house-warming gift for a new boat: "Home is where the anchor drops + the boat's name."…
On a Virgin Islands chart that a wife bought as a surprise gift for her husband, she requested their charter vessel's name and asked me to mark a small red X at a specific site on the map. The wife had a giggle fit (when she drew a dot in pencil precisely where she wanted it) but would not elaborate. I'll always wonder.
One couple purchased a set of Belize maps to have guests sign at their beach wedding reception in Belize. Their friend's signatures and good wishes made the maps an extra special keepsake. I had signed and added a "blessing quote" they'd requested on the bottom of each before shipping the maps to their address in the US for them to hand-carry down with the wedding gown…
My charts lend themselves to this, but other prints, too.
A client purchased the Traveler's Palm as a wedding present for the bride-to-be because she and her family were from Madagascar. Strelitziaceae is a symbol of Madagascar.
Some request an original signature to add to their print's value and nothing more.
So let me know if you have a request.
