The ketubah design is based on wildflowers that naturally grow in the Land of Israel. The circular motif symbolizes life and renewal. The symmetrical nature of this design represents the pasuk: K’mayim hapanim lpanim, ken lev ha’adam l’adam ~ Just as one’s face is reflected back when looking into water, so too one person’s heart is reflected in another (Proverbs 27:19). May you continue to reflect the best parts of each other throughout your life together.
If your wedding has to be postponed or rearranged due to the corona virus, do not worry. At Ketubah.com we can reprint your ketubah free of charge with revised dates.
Our paper ketubahs (papercut ketubahs included) are printed on cold press, acid free art paper, the standard in artistic reproductions. This paper is slightly textured and can be ordered with or without name printing.
Canvas ketubahs have a glossy look with texture and shine. The canvas can be framed behind glass or can be stretched by a framer. Our canvas ketubahs require name printing.
We offer the canvas stretching feature in house as well. When ordered this way, the ketubah is stretched by hand on a specially built frame in a style known as gallery wrap and comes ready to hang complete with a wire at the back.
Find the Right Text
Every ketubah needs a text. First narrow down the category depending on the type of ceremony you will be having (eg. Orthodox, Conservative….) and consult with your officiant to ensure it is appropriate for your ceremony. You'll then be able to choose from multiple texts in each category to find the perfect one for you.
Text and Name Printing
We offer different options regarding how you would like your text to be set up. While the majority of couples order their ketubah with printed text and names for a seamless look to the text, many others would like to write in their names, date and location information by hand with a pen. For those that want to write their own text we also offer a custom text option in addition to the option of having their custom text translated into Hebrew as well.
Standard text printed, names to be handwritten
When selecting this option you will receive your ketubah with text that has blank spaces for hand written information. You will need to write in the names, date and location within the printed text prior to the wedding.
Standard text and names printed
When selecting this option you will receive your ketubah with all of your personalization information filled in- no blanks spaces will appear in the text. The ketubah will still have lines for the witnesses to sign at the wedding. After placing your order you will receive a form to fill in with all the necessary information so that we can create a proof for your review and approval before the ketubah is created.
Compose your own text for us to print
If you prefer to compose your own text for your ketubah you can choose the custom text option. The names of the couple, wedding date and location will all be filled in for you when selecting this option. Once you place your order, you can email us your text in a word document so that we can create a proof for your review and approval before your ketubah is created.
Compose your own text for us to translate and print
If you are providing a custom text that you wrote and want it translated into Hebrew we offer a translation service. After placing your order you can email us your custom English text, and we send it to a third party translator. Your ketubah text would then be both Hebrew and English. We will create a proof for your review and approval before your ketubah is created.
Small - 18" x 18"
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.
