This papercut consists of 3 layers. Our lives intertwined by our unique aura; We are blended by touch and sight, Mixed by senses and spice. Our love is red, green and blue, An array of shades, in every hue. You are my life, my love, my rainbow, you are my dream come true. Inspired by the rainbow Tree, the Eucalyptus deglupta is a grand tree, commonly known as the rainbow Eucalyptus, Mindanao gum, or Rainbow Gum. It is known as the only Eucalyptus species found naturally in the Northern Hemisphere. Its natural distribution spans across New Britain, New Guinea, Seram, Sulawesi and Mindanao. The unique multi-hued bark is the most distinctive feature of the tree. Patches of outer bark are shed annually at different times, showing a bright green inner bark. This then darkens and matures to give deep blue, purple, orange and then maroon tones.

After being fairly consistent for about 200 years, Ketubah text options have evolved significantly since the latter part of the last century. Today, in addition to the traditional Aramaic text, there are a number of modern Hebrew and English texts that are more Egalitarian and reflect today’s more modern couples.
We always recommend you consult with your officiating clergy prior to placing your order. Generally, they will advise you as to which text they recommend. If they do not have a preferred text then you can choose from any of the texts we offer based on personal preference.
If you would like to use a text other than what we offer on our website you can provide us with a text that you’ve written or perhaps seen elsewhere and obtained permission to use. If you want to use a text that is not on our website you would choose the ‘custom text’ option.
We are incredibly proud to offer our own exclusive line of Ketubah designs, produced in house and available on paper, canvas and stretched canvas. Paper ketubahs are printed on a cold press acid free art paper with a natural white surface. The paper ketubah has some texture to it and need to be framed in order to be hung up. Ketubahs ordered on paper can be ordered with or without names pre-printed.
The ketubah printed on canvas has a glossy look and has more texture and shine than the paper. The canvas can be framed behind glass or you can take it to a framer after the wedding to be stretched.
We offer the canvas stretching feature in house as well, and when ordered this way, the Ketubah is stretched by hand on a specially built frame in a style known as gallery wrap. A gallery wrapped" canvas Ketubah comes ready to hang complete with a wire at the back. Canvas and stretched canvas ketubahs are available only if you order names pre filled.
Text and Name Printing
Standard Text, No Names
Our standard texts are available for purchase with the existing blank spaces (standard text, no names) as well as with the option of names pre printed (standard text + names). If you select “standard text, no names” you will receive your ketubah with text that has blank spaces for hand written information. Someone will need to fill out the names, date and location within the ketubah prior to the wedding. Before selecting this you should ensure you have someone who will fill out the ketubah for you in both Hebrew and English. Some ketubahs do not come with blank areas left for handwritten names and these are only available with the standard text + names option.
Standard Text + Names
Our standard texts are available with names and other relevant personal information filled in for you by our team. If you select this option all of your personal information will be completed digitally and there will be no blank spaces within the text. The ketubah will still have lines for the witnesses to sign at the wedding but the blank spaces within the text will be completed in matching digital calligraphy as the rest of the text.
If you prefer to compose your own text for your ketubah you can choose the custom text option. The additional fee for using a custom text includes having all the personal information filled in by our team so unless you specifically want the personal information left off the ketubah, it will be filled in for you.
Custom Text + Hebrew Translation
If you are providing a custom text that you wrote and want it translated into Hebrew we offer a translation service. You would send us your English text, and we send it to a third party translator. Your ketubah text would then be both Hebrew and English.
Papercutting has been a traditional Jewish art form for Ketubah decoration since the Middle Ages. Thanks to advances in artisanal laser cutting in the late 20th century, these exquisite pieces of fine art are now within everyone's budget. Papercut Ketubahs are lovingly produced, one at a time, to archival standards.
