“Jake was really a man’s dog and very special to my husband. I wanted to give him the etching as a Father’s Day gift in June.”

Lora commissioned an etching from Greyboy Pet Prints as a surprise gift for her hubby. (An etching is handcrafted with love from your favorite photo. I use traditional techniques from the art of printmaking to honor your favorite furry face in an elegant piece of artwork that will compliment any decor. See the process HERE.)

This proud dog mom sent in a few images as possible candidates for an etching. The picture shown below left was the best from the bunch off her smartphone, so we proceeded with this one, retouching out the stray branches coming from the right side of the picture. The image was then burned to a plate, inked and pressed onto fine art Italian paper through my printing press. It was signed, packaged in the Greyboy signature packaging and shipped off to Lora. I couldn’t wait for her to receive it!

“It arrived this afternoon. My husband is playing golf at the beach so it was perfect timing. Made me tear up when I opened it and saw it. You see, Jake would have been 16 tomorrow so the arrival was bittersweet for me. It’s beautiful and will be a treasured memory for many years. Thank you!!” – Lora

For the month of June in honor of Dad’s Day, Greyboy Pet Prints is offering 30% off an etching (any size). Visit HERE to read about etchings and to grab your code for 30% off! If you need a gift certificate, I’ll wrap one up for you and ship it. Just let me know!

Don’t have a good picture of your pet? (Let me guess – your doggie turns his head when you pull out the camera, your kitty hides under the bed, or your dog just won’t sit still for you to snap a picture.) No worries! That’s my expertise!

For those who need a good picture of their pet, the first two weeks of June I have 2 photo sessions available here in SoCal (as of today). Visit HERE for more info. First come, first served, on these two spots available.

And of course, we love kitties here at Greyboy Pet Prints so we like to include cats as well as dogs! Below is black and white kitty Pippy whose health is failing. Her mom wanted an etching and sent me a few images to choose one to work with. Here is the before and after transformation from snapshot to fine art:
