Personalised Family Tree, Custom Tree Print, Anniversary Gift, Gift for Parents, Grandparent Gift, Personalised gift, Gift Boss, Mum Gift
A beautiful personalised custom print of your family tree in the style of a vintage botanical illustration. the artwork was created by me in pencils with a tint in ochre and green watercolours. Up to A2 in size (16.5 x 23.4"). This item has also been used as a gift to a boss/mentor and the tree filled with the names of employees either randomly placed or placed in order of length of service. You will be purchasing the print only (the frame in the last image is for illustration only).
THE PROCESS AND PRICING:
I have tried to price my family trees to be a fair reflection of the time involved in designing and creating what I believe is a quite unique product. You can choose the number of names to be included from the drop down menu.
Rather than the usual typing of names in straight lines, I add names a letter or two at a time, adjusting the font style and size to reflect the quantity of names to be included. Names are then roughly moved into place and a draft with the first rough idea for layout will be sent to you.
We will then work together, moving names around, adjusting font size etc until you are happy with the overall layout. I will then place each letter so that the names follow the flow of the branches. If we are short of the odd branch I will digitally add extra foliage so that each family member has a logical place to sit.
You will have every opportunity to make further adjustments until you are 100% happy with the look of your tree and give me the go ahead to print.
In the example I have shown parents at the base of the tree with their children, spouses and grandchildren within the tree. Grandparents and great grandparents are within the roots.
Alternatively you could work backwards through the generations within the branches of the tree. I'd say it could comfortably house parents at the base and then a further 4 generations of ancestors within the tree with children and grandchildren within the roots.
THE ORDERING PROCESS:
If you have a deadline in mind please feel free to contact me before ordering to ensure we can meet it - I will prioritise as necessary. If you are in a rush then I can send you a DIGITAL FILE for you to print locally and I would refund £5 plus postage to take into account materials.
When you purchase this item please send me a list of your family names via Etsy with brief explanation as to their relationships. Female spouses would normally be shown using their maiden names but it's up to you. Please also advise which title/message you would like below the tree. If the names are in a file you could email to mel [!at] hallelujahtree.uk
Once we have agreed on the layout, the tree will be printed on a beautiful Somerset satin paper of archival quality.
The print will be sent to you rolled in a very sturdy tube.
Please choose from the drop down menu and if you don't see the size you would like then please send me a message and I an add that option to the listing. The maximum possible dimensions are 16.5 x 23.4"

I Melanie Colletta of Hallelujah Tree am the data-controller of your personal information as it relates to my shop.
When you place an order from me, I will receive your name, delivery address and email address from Etsy. I will only use these details to process and deliver your order, or deal with any queries you have related to that order.
The only circumstances in which I will share your data are in processing your order or complying with the law. I will never use or pass on your information to third parties for marketing purposes or any other purpose, other than the circumstances listed below, I do not have mailing lists. The circumstances in which I may share your data are:
• With Etsy to comply with my obligations.
• With delivery companies to fulfil your order.
• To comply with legal or tax obligations.
I will retain your details for as long as necessary in order to process the transaction and I will securely store any data collected during that period. I retain personal data related to orders or customer queries for 7 years. After this time I will delete your data from my records.
In the case of custom orders I will retain your records as long as Hallelujah Tree is in business because I offer you the chance to contact me in future years to have additional names added to your family tree and have your tree reprinted or an updated JPEG sent.
If you explicitly ask me to dispose of your details after 7 years I will comply with your request.
I have no access to your payment account details as PayPal or Etsy Payments processes your order, depending on the method you choose. Your information will be stored on the Etsy system as long as I have my store on Etsy or until Etsy deletes it. I will not spam you or solicit you using the information provided to me.
You have the right to know what personal data I hold about you, and to ask for that data to be changed or deleted. You also have the right to complain to the ICO if you believe there is a problem with the way I handle your data.
You can either list names on your order, send me a separate note via the website or, if you have a file or photograph which you would like to email then please send to firstname.lastname@example.org . If you have your family research on a site such as ancestry.com then you have the option of making me a guest on your tree so that I can access the information directly to save you re-inputting. Alternatively you could send a GEDCOM file.
Yes, there are shop sections for digital copies of artworks which I'd email to you. I'd recommend using a photo printing service to print your jpg rather than an office printer which would not provide such a good quality print.
Families do change very quickly I have found! Engagements, new babies and suddenly your tree is not quite up to date. I would normally only ask that you cover the price of materials and postage of the updated print unless of course the alterations were more significant than just adding one or two names. Just get in touch to discuss. Thank you!
Yes, you will see as many proofs as necessary throughout the design process! I'll send a first rough proof as a starting point after adding your names to the tree and then we'll work through as many further proofs as necessary until you give me the final OK to print/send.
I source frames from a local manufacturer in the UK which are made from sustainable wood sources. Although there are cheaper frames on the market I will only supply good quality frames which I feel do justice to the thought that has gone into the artwork to be displayed.
My frames are for artwork up to 10x12" in size. Due to the high postage costs for anything larger I recommend customers source their own frame if they require a larger print.
Just to assure you that I have purchased copyright to allow me to use the Zapfino fonts seen in most of my images.
