One of the decisions a couple needs to make when ordering a ketubah is whether to order an original or a print. An original is made from scratch especially for you. A print is usually printed in quantity with blank spaces left for the names, dates and place, and this is filled in afterwards, either by a calligrapher or a non-professional. The originals of course cost more, but then again a lot more time and care is put into its making.
The Ketubot you see on the Ketubah home page are all original ketubot. You may commission a ketubah similar to one of these designs or discuss with me possibilities of variations on these themes. All materials are of the highest quality and permanence, to insure the ketubah will last for generations. For an idea of some of the prices of these originals please click HERE.
I have also prepared several of my ketubah designs for print. (These appear with asteriks after their name on the Ketubah home page).These are high quality giclee prints. These of course are less expensive than originals. One advantage of the ketubah prints I offer is that you will receive a ketubah that is not a fill-in (i.e. a ketubah that is printed with blank spaces for the names and dates and place to be filled in afterwards). These in my opinion are not esthetically pleasing - the spaces never exactly fit your names properly, and the script is never the same as the one printed - even if done by the same calligrapher (as the ink the calligrapher uses is different than the printing inks and so it always looks added on.
KETUBAH ( ksuva, ksuba,ketuba, ksuvah) INFORMATION
The ketubot I offer as prints incorporate state of the art technology to give your printed ketubah the look of an original - each ketubah will be indivudually printed up specifically for you - and so the names will seamlessly fit in, giving the look of an original. The scripts used are derived directly form my hand calligraphy to give a look quite similar to the original.
You can also order customs texts as prints. Please contact me for details. For prices of the ketubah prints and originals please click HERE
