A personalised word search is a unique gift, that captures countless thoughts and memories forever.
Each print contains up to 100 words and is meticulously created by hand. They are not computer generated and are printed and framed using the highest quality materials meaning it will bring pleasure and memories for many years to come.
There are various options regarding finish, colours, sizes and framing and they can be hand-finished using real silver or 24ct gold leaf and each print is hand embossed, signed and dated before framing.
I've received some really lovely feedback about my work. You can read some here.
A personalised word search print is the perfect gift for a loved one, for a wedding, anniversary, or for a milestone birthday.
A UNIQUE PRINT IN MORE WAYS THAN ONE...
Studies have shown that word searches can help improve memory, focus, vocabulary, and overall mental acuity. Finding words releases dopamine, the 'reward molecule' which explains why they are so addictive but when those words are events, dates and people special to you, the feelings and memories they evoke are uniquely rewarding.
100 WORDS IN EACH PRINT
Each personalised word search is created by hand and can contain up to 100 words and phrases of your choice. It's amazing how many words you can think of when thinking about a person or subject close to your heart.
Depending on the subject, these are a few ideas of words to include:
Places – e.g. addresses, holiday destinations, honeymoon, wedding venue, birthplace, school, university
Events – e.g. memorable, funny, personal or significant things where a word or a few words will trigger a memory
Dates – e.g. birthdays, wedding day, start date, leaving date
Interests – e.g. hobbies, sports, films, bands, particular song(s)
Numbers, punctuation and foreign characters can also be included. Words normally run from left to right, horizontally, diagonally or running from top to bottom but if requested, words can appear backwards that are harder to find. A background image such as a heart or logo can also be added.
It's also a great idea to ask family and friends to suggest words to include.
Prints can be supplied in any colours so please let me know if you have any ideas you'd like to discuss.
ARCHIVAL PRINTING, PAPER AND MOUNTING
Each print is printed using archival fade-resistant inks on textured acid-free 100% cotton fine art paper which has been tested to last up to 200 years!
The keyword(s) can be applied by hand in any colour including neons, metallics, real silver leaf or 24ct gold leaf. Please get in touch to ask about specific colours.
Each print is framed in a high-quality white contemporary frame. The print is mounted and backed using archival acid-free whitecore mount board and where needed, P70 conservation tape.
