Let’s get personal with personalised artwork

Personalised name canvasSomeone once asked me who the target market for Northern Letters was. I thought about it briefly and said, “People with letters in their name.” Although I abandoned my application for The Apprentice shortly after making this insightful marketing analysis, thinking about it going forward on reflection (maybe I could apply after all) it’s probably not far wrong.

From the moment we first pick up a permanent marker pen and carefully scrawl our name on our parent’s newly decorated wall (just me then?), everyone likes seeing their name on display. From your pencil case in school to the bright lights of the West End, it’s like a typographical selfie, but less vain, it makes you feel important and special. Empty a bag of scrabble letters in front of someone and what’s the first thing they’ll do, or maybe the second thing after spelling a rude word? They’ll pick out the letters required to spell their name and, if they paid attention in school, even place them in the right order too!

“There was my name up in lights. I said, ‘God, somebody’s made a mistake.’ But there it was, in lights. And I sat there and said, ‘Remember, you’re not a star.’ Yet there it was up in lights.”

Marilyn Monroe may have been fortunate enough to have her name up in actual lights and who doesn’t love a bit of lit letter signage (oh just me again then?), but seeing your name anywhere can have the same effect! Except perhaps on a charge sheet or summons, but the typefaces they use on those are just awful, don’t you think…er…

So what’s all this got to do with Northern Letters? Following extensive research I have found that by putting our beautiful and varied Manchester inspired letters in certain formations, not only can they create words, but also names! This revelation has led to the introduction of our new fully personalised artwork products. All you need to do is select which size personalised name print or personalised name canvas you want, tell us the name or names you want on it and we will create a unique original design that, once you have approved it, will be with you in a few short days. For an additional cost we can also arrange for prints to be expertly mounted and framed.

So whether a unique gift for a birthday, wedding or just because you want to, or a treat for yourself, let Northern Letters create a truly unique piece of personalised artwork especially for you. I think you’ll like what we can do with a few letters! You never know, you may soon see me on TV rushing around London buying random items with a selection of numpties who hold mobile phones as if they’ve never used one before after all…
