All handwriting is recreated by hand into an authentic, high quality digital replica of the original. This helps immensely with fainted lettering, missing words, lines or stains. I encourage engraving the handwriting just as it was written - messy, crooked, scribbles, and even the odd spelling mistake. That’s what makes it even more meaningful!
However, there are situations where having a little more creative control with the artwork, opens up more possibilities. With how I create the digital artwork, handwriting can be reformatted to better compliment certain keepsake shapes, sizes and orientations. And I can always add handwriting or a signature from another file to make it that much more special.
Once you see the proof it will look and feel as though they rewrote the recipe themselves - just for you! All artwork (digital replica of handwriting and/or final design) is sent for approval before anything is made - we want this to be just right! There is more information about the artwork proofs in the tab below.

With shipping, we are at the mercy of the carrier. Since COVID, they have experienced major delays and backlogs especially during peak times in addition to the normal impact severe weather affects delivery times. I do everything I can to make the shipping as seamless and safe as possible, but unfortunately once your order leaves my studio, it is outside of my control. I therefore cannot be held responsible for delayed packages, incorrect addresses or lost items.
We occasionally will ship things overseas on a case-by-case basis. If you’d like to inquire about an international order, please contact Terri with “International Order Inquiry” in the header.

Tips for capturing a photo of your recipe or handwriting:
- take a picture at close range, on a flat surface in bright light, without shadows. Do not crop photo. The image should be bright, clear and in focus. Outdoor light works best.
- if some of the letters from your recipe are faded, make a photocopy of the recipe, then trace over the writing with dark ink to make them legible before shooting. However, if I can see the stroke, I can recreate the word.
- If you do not have a handwritten version, handwriting can be engraved with a vintage typewriter font with a signature at the bottom if available. In this case, a typed recipe or select wording can be included in the personalization section on the product page. Any digital files of the signature can be sent by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please proof spelling and wording before sending as I copy & paste.
Artwork proofs will be provided via email for review and approval. This is to ensure design, spelling and layout are correct.

If I have not heard from you within the time frame indicated, I will consider the artwork approved and proceed with production.
