How To Order Your Ketubah

Please note: A completed Ketubah Worksheet is required for all orders. Please find the link to this worksheet on the left side of each Ketubah page.

Here's what you need to know as you order your ketubah. Of course, please feel welcome to email or call as questions come up!


COLOR

My ketubot allow you to customize your choice of color for part of the design.

For example, for the Lilac and Forest Ketubot, shimmery opal and silver are standard-priced colors for the backing layer. You also have the option to request a giclee-printed custom color, for which there is a $75 charge. Please note that some of the ketubot shown here on my website are pictured with custom colors, and so the custom color charge is included in their prices.

The second layer of the Terrace Ketubah can be cut from shimmery opal or silver paper.

The design on the Dodi Li Ketuba can be customized to any color.


YOUR TEXT

The Hebrew and/or English text that you choose for your ketubah should feel good to you both, and be approved by your officiant. My standard texts are available to be viewed right under the ketubah images. If none of my standard texts seem just right, you are welcome to edit one of them, or send me a custom text of your own. Please send your custom text typed in copy-able word or rtf format, or ask me about typing charges.

If you are using one of my standard texts you will most likely want to request that I personalize it for you with your names, wedding date, and so on, for a seamless calligraphic look (there is a $75 fee for this). The fonts that I use are my own calligraphic fonts. Please let me know if you have any special requests regarding formatting, fonts or text color.

Once you have placed your order and sent in your Ketubah Worksheet, I will send you a proof of your text so that you and your officiant can confirm that it is just right.


KETUBA WORKSHEET

I would be happy to transliterate English names into Hebrew, if you would like this assistance. I can also determine for you what the Hebrew date of your wedding will be.

Signature lines show the witnesses, bride, groom, and rabbi where to sign the ketubah text at the wedding. I tend to like the balance that is created when signature lines are labeled in both English and Hebrew. Regardless of what you choose for the labels, the signatures themselves can be signed in English, Hebrew or both languages.


DESIGN

Choose the design that feels right to you. Requests for custom additions or changes to the design are welcome! An additional fee will apply.


TIMING & SHIPPING

Please plan to allow 4-6 weeks for creation of your papercut ketubah. If your deadline is sooner just let me know and I will be happy to work with you to have your ketuba ready in advance of your wedding - my ketubot can be created very quickly when necessary!

I will send you some detailed care information when your ketubah ships. Your ketubah will ship flat, packed cozy within a clear plastic art envelope, safely between several layers of cardboard, by UPS ground. It will be mounted onto a firm foam board, ready for signing and display at your wedding!
