Custom Illustrations: The Perfect Gift

I take pride and delight in finding the perfect gift, and am happy to share that I found one unique concept that everyone will love!

I discovered an artist named Glessy on Fiverr who will create a custom caricature based on the photo you send her. I first collaborated with her when planning my husband's 30th birthday party. She took his headshot and made it into a caricature that looked just like him.
I passed the caricature file along to my stationery designer, Christina Reinersman, who incorporated it into a one-of-a-kind "BenFest" logo. I was so happy with how this invitation turned out! We even carried this caricature throughout every aspect of the party. I'm talking "Ben" heads on a stick as photo props, BenFest stickers, BenFest posters and "Did you know?" BenFest fact sheets. His head was literally everywhere. (You can see more BenFest photos here.)

Using this artist was the best decision I made when planning Ben's party. The illustration was truly memorable! I also must give props to Christina who turned Ben's head into an exceptional logo that inspired all the print materials.

Since BenFest, I have used this Fiverr artist for a couple other custom gifts. Here's one she did of my mom and me...
 And one she did of us with Ben's parents and siblings...

I had the last two illustrations printed on card stock at Staples and then framed them in white frames with white mats for a polished look.

Overall, I could not be more thrilled with Glessy's work. This girl has some serious talent! Wanting your own custom caricature? You can get more details on her work here.
