NeedlePaint Gift Giving Made Easy!

Even with the best of intentions, holiday shopping can get out of control. The main culprit — lack of time. We’ve found that most people do not plan their holiday gifts 2-3 months in advance. 

Let NeedlePaint simplify your gift list! We can create a digital gift card preview of a finished NeedlePaint product, that you would like to gift. These can be printed out and put into a Christmas card with a note to your recipient saying that their custom needlepoint belt, wallet, flask, card wallet, pillow or key fob is being stitched and will be ready in a few weeks. 

NeedlePaint Digital Gift Card Preview

It normally takes us 3-5 business days to create your preview once your order has been placed. We begin stitching your order, once your design has been approved. We can create a digital gift card preview if you approve your order before December 21st. Quick and easy to print on your home computer, wrap it up, and put it under the tree or in a stocking.

“Stitch your own” Needlepoint canvases are still available for orders placed before December 7th with regular shipping (shipped on December 11th) and orders placed before December 14 available with rush shipping (shipped December 18th). 

 

We can even create a digital gift certificate in any dollar amount
for those who like to stitch their own canvas.

Stitch a NeedlePaint Custom Canvas!

The possibilities are limitless when creating a custom needlepoint canvas! NeedlePaint would love to help translate your ideas and create a special canvas to stitch.

Where to begin: We often recommend our custom needlepoint photo program on the NeedlePaint website. For some photos this works great. For other photos, your editing options may be a bit limited, so we have another solution for you. 

Another Solution: Our designers can draw and create a custom canvas for you to stitch. Simply send us a photo, sketch, graphic, a quote, or any idea that you may have in mind. We can add an artistic touch to your image and control some of the elements, such as: adjusting the composition; adding or removing items; changing the background or colors; emphasize certain features; and adding personality to bring something special out in the subject. The possibilities are limitless, our designers are very talented!

The ordinary background was removed, and replaced with a subtle colorful texture. We thought it would be fun to change the color of the eyes and make them match the background.

We can create a custom graphic with a favorite quote or saying that may be special to you. This quote was created with classic typography, and then a special patterned background was added. The results: a fun and colorful needlepoint canvas to stitch!

A custom “designer” drawn portrait or graphic canvas, captures a moment in time. Once stitched, it will become a special keepsake for your family. We would be happy to help create a custom canvas for you, simply contact us at: info@needlepaint.com

Happy Stitching!
