Our custom needlepoint printing
service is fast and professional. Do you have a special photo, or some art work, that you would like transferred to needlepoint canvas so you can stitch it? Maybe a photo of your house, a favorite pet, or a wedding picture? That's what custom needlepoint printing is all about.
Here's how custom needlepoint printing works:
the digital image (or a hard copy image, but we prefer a digital one if you can) that you want reproduced. There's a form at the bottom of this page that we request you fill out. You may not have all the answers yet, but fill in what you can so we can get back to you.
Specify the needlepoint canvas mesh size
you want (if you know it), and the size that you want the design to be (it can be enlarged or reduced from the original). We can make some minor "Photoshop" modifications if necessary.

"Dear Brenda and Cheryl
Just wanted to let you know that I received the print on the needlepoint cloth today. It was a copy of my granddaughter's picture.
It's perfect !! Thank you so much for your suggestions about the pink highlights. I think they will really make the needlepoint 'pop'.
I will heartily recommend you to my friends and family
What If I Need Threads?
You can commission a custom needlepoint either as canvas-only or with fibers. We can supply cotton, wool or silk threads. The price will depend upon the size of the design and the number of different colors there are in it. We can give you a quote for threads once we have your image design finalized.

Things to Consider
Close-ups are better than distant objects. Try to avoid too much 'busy-ness' in the design. There should be a central object, and it is best if the background doesn't have too much 'going on'. Our designer may be able to adjust the photo you send to remove background features and/or lighten objects if necessary. Close-ups allow the detail to come through which is important when you go to stitch it.
Dark colors that are similar to each other may blend together when printed. Highly saturated dark colors, printed in large areas don't have the visual impact they do on your monitor. They print lighter. Blacks tend to come out as dark charcoal greys and look best when used in small amounts and with lighter colors.
Design details print well as long as there is good contrast between colors and the colors are not too dark.
There are no white inks so white will be the color of the underlying canvas.
Color images work better than black and white ones, but black and white is possible.

The process usually takes 1-2 weeks before you are mailed the canvas. Times are approximate so check with us if you have a deadline.
