Ketubah Artist Miriam Karp creates unique and 100% new designs via her website Custom Ketubah for each and every couple she works with. Working with couples to create an original work based on individuals preferences of Motif, Style, Color & Calligraphy, ordering a Ketubah from Miriam guarantees that the Ketubah you sign will be the only one in the world, should you choose to go with an individual design. The website is a little old, and a little simpler than we might expect from a site dedicated beautiful artwork!
Of course, there are various options for couples interested in getting a pre-made option, which are available as Giclee prints. These prints, running about $350 call on favorite elements from her custom artwork, and are customizable with various texts, including one titled “Equal Parters” which Heidi and I thought really spoke to us as individuals. The downside to Custom Ketubah is that there are only about 20 pre-made designs, with only a couple prints much more impressive than what you might find in a store with 400+ Ketubah offerings.
The diversity of her texts was really a pleasant surprise, and the fact that couple who loves cards, moose, and pianos could have all of these included on their Ketubah is very exciting! Nothing like a personal touch for a contract with the one you love. Unfortunately, the website is operating on very old software, and it looks like it hasn’t been updated since the late 1990s. It’s always a shame when the site isn’t as good as the art!
