Home is where the Heart is...

Today we launched an impromptu 'QUOTES' day on the More Than Words Facebook page and had a great response, with over 20 inspiring (and some very funny) quotes to sift through before choosing our favourite.

Thank you to Kelly from PiddleyPix who offered this 'oh so true' classic quote from John Ed Pearce, inspiring this simple typographic design using our 'Favourite Things' font:

In the words of Dorothy, indeed "there's no place like home"....

Hope you like it? I'm a homebody so this one will soon be hanging on my wall.

Destination Unknown

Satin varnished and ready to go today is this giant 1200 x 500mm bespoke vintage-inspired 'Destinations Blind'.

Hand-stretched around a solid wood frame with supporting backboard, supplied with a split-baton/gallery hanging system, and finished to Fine Art standards.
I love the quirkiness of this piece of artwork and have been looking forward to sharing it on the blog. The customer asked for a gap to be left in the design for that one special place he has yet to find.

In the words of one of our other popular designs, "Life is a Journey. Destination Unknown." Where would you like to end up?

From £125 for a bespoke 'Destinations' framed print. Visit www.morethanwords.uk.com

Bespoke Memories on Canvas

A super sized 1200 x 800mm personalised memories themed canvas design has today been hand-finished and carefully packaged, ready to make its way to decorate the entrance hall of a new home. What a fantastic talking point. I love this bold and colourful design, based on the 'original memories canvas', the very idea that launched More Than Words.


Bespoke Wedding Designs
Also finished today, a gorgeous little 8 x 10" lilac vintage framed wedding canvas.

And finally, the finished 16 x 20" vintage framed 'Cadburys purple' design, a keepsake gift for the Bride and Groom when they return from their honeymoon.


Purple is clearly a popular choice this wedding season!

Brown paper packages tied up with string....

I used to watch the 'Sound of Music' over and over again as a little girl (in awe of Julie Andrews' beauty and wishing I was one of the Von Trapp children). That's definitely one of the favourite things that I would add to this bespoke design...along with my family, days spent living in the sunshine, my DINKY years, 'It's a Wonderful Life', holiday margaritas and G&Ts, my hometown Edinburgh, my husband's amazing cooking...I could go on and on.

I always love reading through the memories that people send me as the basis for their design, and this beautiful 1000mm x 665mm 'Favourite Things' piece is no exception.


The More Than Words bespoke 'Favourite Things' typographic design is a very popular piece that I have been getting more and more requests for. Six this week alone!

A simple design with impact, a real talking point and centre piece for any room. It's contemporary, unique and the fact that people can select any colours they like ensure that it fits in with any interior. It's often ordered as a gift and has been very popular from Brides to Grooms and vice versa and is equally as popular as a leaving memento, birthday or anniversary present and I have recently designed one for a house warming gift.

This design is available on canvas, vintage framed canvas, acrylic or as a framed print. Prices start from £65.

Bespoke 'Birthday' Word Art

We receive lots of 'birthday' typographic design requests to create a bespoke piece of word art as a present for a loved one. In fact these requests are so popular that we will soon offer it as one of the bespoke themes on our website! This doesn't mean that you can't order it now though. Simply select the 'Blank Canvas' or 'Memories Theme' options.

I wanted to share today's design. The customers requested this design as a 60th present for their father. They had very specific ideas in mind, different fonts and colours, to capture his special memories over 60 wonderful years.
I worked very closely with them to create this stunning deep-set 800 x 535mm black ash framed print. The print is surrounded by an off-white textured 3 inch mount.

Life is Your Journey....

Over the last few months we have had several requests from customers asking if we would be willing to personalise one of our limited collection typographic designs, 'Life is a Journey'. Created using a list of the 2010 top city destinations.

Of course we said yes, and the pieces turned out so well that we have now decided to offer this little beauty as one of our bespoke themes.

Further details, including sizes and prices are on our website. Create your own personalised piece from £75.00.


As with all of our bespoke typographic designs, customers will still have the ability to select background and word colours. We will use our creative eye to match the map of the world colour accordingly, unless specified by you.
