One of my favorite gifts to receive is a custom product with my dogs' name or picture on it. Just like my human children, I love showing off my fur babies to friends and family members! Giclée portraits from Neal's Pet Paintings are a unique way to display your pet's adorable face.
These beautiful handmade pieces of art would certainly be a welcome addition in any home with pets. I was thrilled when I opened my package to reveal this stunning portrait of my dog Joey. I am also sure that any pet owner would be thrilled to receive one of these as a gift!
Neal's Pet Paintings will make a portrait of any pet. While I’m obviously featuring a painting for dog owners, you can get a custom handmade piece of art of a cat, horse, bird, hamster or any other pet.
Neal's Pet Paintings Giclée Portrait
Giclée is a French word that means “to spray.” It refers to the way an inkjet printer releases ink. A giclée is a type of artwork in which the artist paints a digital painting using a photo as a reference. The human artist actually makes brush strokes with a tablet and stylus to create a 100% unique piece of art.
The artwork is then printed on a canvas or fine art poster with an inkjet printer. Neal's Pet Paintings offer framed canvases (featured in this review), canvas wraps stretched over a wood frame, and fine art posters.
The ordering process was very simple. After you upload an appropriate photo, it takes about a week to create the artwork. Once shipped, you can expect your package in 7-10 days. I received my canvas 12 days after I placed my order.
Framed canvases are available in sizes:
- 14″ x 11″ or 11″ x 14″
- 16″ x 12″ or 12″ x 16″
- 24″ x 20″ orr 20″ x 24″
- 30″ x 24″ or 24″ x 30″
Orders can be placed on the company's website.
Prices for a framed canvas are $99.99, $129.99, $149.99 and $199.99 in respective order. While these pieces of art are expensive, the finished product is definitely priceless to the pet owner. The price is comparable with other similar 1-of-a-kind pet portraits, so I do believe these giclées are a good value.
