Personalized Letter Art When You Don’t Know Their Tastes

We often receive calls from people wishing to give a personalized Letter Art gift but they are struggling to figure out which custom choices to make in the design. For example, maybe you’ve been invited to a wedding but have never been to the couple’s home. So in this case, what color theme for the Letter Art do you choose? Should you spell out their last name or first names with a heart in the middle? Whose name goes first? Or would it be better to create Letter Art  with a meaningful word instead of a name?  We have all your answers here!

1. What color theme do I use if I’ve never been to their house yet I still want the gift to look special? In this case, it is good to keep it neutral. However, keep in mind that when choosing wall hangings in a home, the goal is NOT to keep it “matchy” with the other wall art in the room. Any professional interior designer will tell you to mix things up to keep a room visually interesting. So with that said you should relax knowing that you really can’t make a mistake. Here are 2 neutral design combinations of personalized Letter Art  that would look great in any home:

2. Is it better to give  personalized Letter Art spelling out their last name or first names? The first question to ask is whether the couple intends to share the same last name. If the answer is yes, then, by all means, a personalized Letter Art gift would be a great way to commemorate their union. If you are unsure or the answer is no, then let the Alphabet Photography spell out their first names.

3. If I’m using first names, whose name should go first in my letter art gift? Here’s the great thing about Letter Art: You really can’t go wrong! You can change the alphabet art around and play on our design page and see what seems better. (And here’s a trick if their first names are too long to fit in our standard frames: our Photo Deco Board can fit up to 14 photos.)

4. What about creating a meaningful word as Letter Art instead of a name? This is a great option as well, and there are endless words to choose from: LOVE, PEACE, JOY, FAITH, BELIEVE, HAPPINESS, FOREVER, HARMONY …just to name a few!  See these beautiful Letter Art designs that make great gifts for any individual, couple, or family:
