FAQ: Personalized Prints

Make sure your personalized print is perfect! Below are some of the more frequent questions we receive about personalization options. Feel free to contact us for further assistance if you don’t find your answers here.

Whose initials go first?

Personalized prints feature two sets of initials. There are several ways to choose whose initials go where: ladies first, alphabetical order, age before beauty:) Have fun with it.
Quick tip: Customers who are ordering this print for themselves often order their initials first, for example if Sarah ordered this for her wedding anniversary she might want the initials to say "SJP+MB".

Can I order names instead of initials?

Yes! We can fit up to 5 letters for first names. Gwen+Gavin would work fine, but David+Victoria would not fit because Victoria's name has too many letters.

How many initials?

We can fit up to three capital letters on the print. You can order one, two or three initials per person, for example: Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick: S+M or SP+MB or SJP+MB.

Which initials – First and last name? First and middle name?

Most customers order the first and last initial, or only the first name initial - Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale: GS+GR, or G+S.
But if a person uses their first and middle names in everyday life, then we recommend the first, middle and last initial - Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick: SJP+MB.

Which initial – Married name? Maiden name?

For weddings and bridal showers, most customers order the maiden name initials - for example, David Beckham and Victoria Adams: DB+VA.
For anniversary gifts, we find most of our customers order the married initials - David Beckham and Victoria Beckham: DB+VB.

Can I use a European date format?

Yes! You can specify any date format of your choice: Day/Month/Year or Month/Day/Year or Year/Month/Day, etc. We can also do 4 digits for the year.
Simply enter the date exactly as you want it displayed.

Which date – Anniversary or Wedding?

This question comes up a lot for anniversaries. We recommend using the original wedding date rather than today's anniversary date. For example: if a couple celebrates their 10th anniversary on May 15, 2015, use their wedding date of May 15, 2005.

Can I customize the colors?

We are working on adding this functionality to our web shop, but we're not quite there yet. You can still customize colors if you order from our Etsy shop: colorbeelove.etsy.com.
