Modern Portraits in So Many Styles
Just Artin’ Around offers one, two, and three-pet portraits in a variety of styles. You’re sure to find the design that fits your pet’s personality best.
Our unframed artwork is printed on fine art, premium textured paper. It’s thick, acid free and 100% cotton. You can feel the quality in your fingertips and see the crisp imagery and text in every piece we create.
Attention to Detail
Unless requested otherwise, Liz will remove collars, leashes, harnesses, and other extraneous objects in your photo. She can also usually fill in body parts that are missing from photos. Looking to add an accessory? Just message us before ordering to make sure we can make it happen!
Who We Are
We’re a family of four (plus our two adorable pets!). Liz is our artist, and Chris runs the show. For us, our artwork isn’t just art; it’s memories captured in time. We understand the importance in each piece we make, and we work alongside our customers to make every order the perfect gift.
When you buy from our family business, we do a little happy dance. We’re here when you need us to make sure your artwork meets all your expectations. Thank you for shopping small!
What are your portraits made of?
All of our paper is printed on bright white, acid-free, 100% cotton-based paper with a rich velvety linen texture. They are printed with HD pigment ink technology (5760x1440 dpi).
Do you offer framing?
Currently, all of our artwork is unframed. We looked into framing in the past, but found the frames suitable for shipping did not meet our quality standards. Instead we offer standard size prints to make it easy to find the perfect frame. This is in our item description and the listing images do show examples of the print as unframed. The examples of framed art are in various style frames to provide inspiration on what frames might look good with the art.
We did look into frames in the past, but found that the frames that are reasonably priced and suitable for shipping were very light weight and made with acrylic (plastic) instead of glass. Because of this, we decided to only offer our prints on high quality art paper. Let us know if you have any additional questions.
How is your art created?
While Liz is a very talented artist and could draw or paint these, she does work digitally on her Surface Studio. She does this to allow for edits after the original proof is created and to also offer larger size prints at a reasonable price. This also allows her to offer reprints if a print is lost or damaged in the mail.
Can I get additional copies?
Yes, we offer an option to order additional copies for a reduced price. Click here to order an additional copy.
Can you add parts of the pet that are not in the photo?
Usually we can. However, please be sure to contact us before ordering by using the chat feature in our shop. You can send us your photo there to be reviewed before placing an order.
How do I know if my photo will work?
You are welcome to contact us before ordering for a complimentary photo review. The chat window does allow for photo uploads.
Will I see a proof?
Yes, we always send a proof to the email address on the order prior to printing and shipping. This will allow for minor edits before we send your print.
Can you combine multiple photos of the same pet?
No, we work off of one photo when creating the portrait.
Can you change the expression on my dogs face?
No, the expresssion that will appear on the porrtait will match the expression on the photo. If you want a particular expression, please be sure to only submit photos with that expression.
Can you change the perspective?
The perspective of your portrait will match the perspective of the photo. In many cases, we can add a chest if the chest is not in the photo, but the perspective of the face will match the photo.
How are these packaged?
All prints are enclosed in an acid-free sleeve. 5x7 and 8x10 prints are shipped with backers inside a rigid envelope marked "Do Not Bend." All larger prints are shipped in sturdy tubes.
Orders that ship with UPS will have the tubes packaged in an additional box.
How do I track my package?
An automated email will be sent to the email address on the order once the shipping label is purchased. Please be sure to check your spam folder.
Do you ship to other countries other than USA?
We offer international shipping through our Etsy shop. Click here to visit our pet portraits section of our Etsy shop.
Do you offer a digital copy?
Yes, the proof you receive in your email is the high-res image of the portrait.
How long do I have to review a proof?
After sending the proof, we will follow-up on the proof for upto three business days before shipping without proof approval. Please be sure to monitor your spam folder.
We are grateful for your support of our small family-owned business. Please take note that all pet portraits will be shipped after the New Year as a result of the significant sales volume. If you are in search of a heartfelt gift for this holiday season, we strongly suggest considering our star map prints.
