The first impressions are from their website which is very well layed out and very user friendly. I always feel a good website will entice buyers to purchase instead of just browsing. They have some fantastic themes to choose from which include; Noah's Ark, Toy Box Girl or Boy, Fairy Princess, Princess Play Party and Pirate Bay. We chose to have Logan's name done in the Noah's Ark theme.
These children's name pictures are created undividually and uniquely each and every time from original hand drawn and painted artworks. You can be sure you will definitely be getting quality from Alphatastic. These lovely works of art would make great gifts for new born babies, a first christening gift or birthday or christmas gift. They will last a life time as they are made using conservation grade standards and it will be very much appreciated by the recipient.
When ordering Logan's name artwork we also asked for it to be framed so that we wouldn't have the hassle or expense of doing this ourselves. Very handy I thought especially if it was a gift for someone else. All are bespoke designed, handmade frames with safety-glazing. Perfect for a child's room as you will have no fear of glass smashing everywhere!
One of the things that I really really like about these children's name artworks is that you can also have a little message included in the artwork, for example we have Logan's date and time of birth as well as his weight just under his name which looks fantastic and it will be something he can treasure forever. Everyone wants to make their child's room look special and unique and this is certainly the way to do it. No one else will ever have the same piece of art and with prices starting at £37.95 it's a bargain!!
The prices are worked out as such; £37.95 for a short name (4-6 Letters mounted) and £39.95 for a long name (7-11 Letters mounted). You can have the artwork framed for an extra £20.00 which is a fabulous price in my opinion as the other half and I are right into our art and we have had numerous things framed and £20.00 for a bespoke handmade frame is a good price. All in all it would cost you up to around £59.95 plus £5.95 P&P but that is an amazing price for something so unqiue and that lasts forever. Your artwork is very well packaged too so there is absolutely no need to worry about the pesky courier damaging it. Alphatastic aim to delivery your artwork within 14 days but you must allow up to 28 days just incase as these are all individually done. We received Logan's in just over a week, I think it was, so not too bad at all.
Alphastatic was created by husband and wife team Matt & Terri, so a small family run business, which I am all for. This country needs more small businesses. I have probably hassled Matt with hundreds of questions in the last few weeks and nothing has every been too much trouble, very polite and friendly with a good sense of humour. Matt and his wife have taken 3 years to develope the business with Alphatastic finally going live on 1st November 2010. Matt and Terri can be found on twitter and facebook so very up to date with the times, it's always good to see.
We really can't wait to put this artwork up in Logan's room. We're having has room decorated first though but I'll be sure to post photos when it's all done.
Overall I highly recommend these gorgeous works of art and will definitely be recommending them to family and friends. Don't forget you can also buy gift vouchers so that people can make them themselves if you are unsure of what they would like. Fair pricing, excellent quality, friendly and helpful people, what more could you ask for!!
Since this is something Logan's can't really rate I've asked the other half to chip in and give me his score out of 10.
Mummies rating - 10/10
The Other Half's rating - 10/10
