Ma­te­r­i­al Options

We want your Ke­tubah to be ab­solute­ly per­fect, for wed­ding day and be­yond!! Team Ke­tubah has put to­geth­er some in­cred­i­ble print­ing op­tions, for every taste and every­one’s bud­get! See im­ages of the var­i­ous pa­per types be­low, and read more about each type on the page for each: Verona Gi­clée Fine Art Pa­per, Hah­nemüle Gi­clée Fine Art Pa­per (Mount­ed), Wrapped Can­vas, Rolled Can­vas, Wood or Met­al.

Here are all the op­tions at a glance:

PA­PER has tra­di­tion­al­ly been the pre­ferred ma­te­r­i­al for Ke­tubot, since it is the medi­um that has been around the longest. Pa­per of­fers a va­ri­ety of pos­si­bil­i­ties that are as end­less as the imag­i­na­tion. We choose to of­fer two dif­fer­ent pa­pers, with two very dif­fer­ent price points to ac­com­mo­date every­one’s taste.



The VERONA GI­CLÉE FINE ART PA­PER tries to ac­com­mo­date our pri­ma­ry goal of hav­ing every cou­ple be­gin their mar­ried life proud­ly dis­play­ing Ju­daica in their home, we have done ex­ten­sive re­search and found a Verona Fine Art Pa­per that we feel con­fi­dent in us­ing. At 230 GSM it is not as thick as the Hah­nemüle Gi­clée, but it still pro­vides some tex­ture. This ma­te­r­i­al does not have a bor­der around the de­sign, the im­age is print­ed all the way to the edge of the pa­per, and ships rolled in a tube. Print­ed us­ing archival and fade re­sis­tant ink. Price should not be a bound­ary for beau­ti­ful art.



The stan­dard in artis­tic re­pro­duc­tions, Hah­nemüle Gi­clée Fine Art Prints use an ink-jet process to faith­ful­ly re-cre­ate prints with a spe­cial fo­cus on tex­ture and col­or. Print­ed us­ing fade-re­sis­tant, archival acid free inks that are pig­ment based. We use Hah­nemüh­le Tex­tured Mat­te pa­per in 310 GSM, the in­dus­try stan­dard for feel, weight, and sur­face tex­ture. These prints are print­ed with a pro­por­tion­al bor­der to fa­cil­i­tate fram­ing and fo­cus the view­er in­to the im­age ‑as well as giv­ing a “frame” be­fore it is framed‑, then mount­ed to a hard back­ing that al­lows you to dis­play it dur­ing the cer­e­mo­ny and help you keep it wrin­kle free :) Ships flat in a stur­dy card­board box with pro­tec­tive over­lay. The best pick for ex­pe­ri­enced col­lec­tors, and cou­ples with an eye for fine art. We mount the Ke­tubah for you, so it is ready to be dis­played! (this op­tion can be print­ed with­out the mount­board if you pre­fer, ask Nina)


CAN­VAS is by far our fa­vorite ma­te­r­i­al to print our Ke­tubot on. Can­vas prints use the same archival, fade re­sis­tant pig­ment ink as the pa­per Ke­tubot. De­sign to re­pro­duce the look and feel of oil and acrylic paint­ings, on cot­ton can­vas, the re­sults are stunning.


ROLLED CAN­VAS The clas­sic choice for the dis­cern­ing cou­ple who wants awe­some qual­i­ty at a great price point. Not to men­tion our Num­ber One choice for the ad­ven­tur­ous cou­ple that is fly­ing to an ex­ot­ic part of the world to have a fab­u­lous lo­ca­tion wed­ding. Rolled can­vas comes in a thick pro­tec­tive card­board tube that is easy to car­ry around air­ports and helps pro­tect your Ke­tubah against the strains of trav­el. The Can­vas is print­ed leav­ing a 2 inch bor­der around the im­age that your framer can lat­er use to wrap the can­vas, or cut it of to fit in a frame ‑and you can prac­tice your sig­na­tures on the edges :)


WRAPPED CAN­VAS Our most Mod­ern (and freakin’ gor­geous!) op­tion, Team Ke­tubah prints to tex­tured can­vas, and stretch­es it on a 1.5? wood­en frame. The re­sult is a beau­ti­ful 3‑D work of art ready to hang on the wall, Adding a bold feel, stun­ning wrap-around de­sign to any room, your Ke­tubah will be the cen­ter­piece of the home you build to­geth­er! The best op­tion for the cou­ple whose love will be dis­played for­ev­er, and gor­geous­ly mod­ern! Click to see more!


Wood CornerWood, an amaz­ing ma­te­r­i­al that un­til now has not been used to make Ke­tubot. Al­though you can ar­gue that the orig­i­nal parch­ment used cen­turies ago was wood, this of­fer­ing is a stun­ning new pro­pos­al. A sus­tain­able 1‑inch think piece of wood is print­ed on and then coat­ed to pro­vide a stun­ning re­sult. The lighter col­ors al­low the grain to come through the im­age to give you that rus­tic feel. The Ke­tubah is print­ed leav­ing a small pro­por­tion­al ‑about 1/2 inch- bor­der around the de­sign to frame the Ke­tubah for you. The Ke­tubah comes ready to hang right out of the box once you sign it :)



Metal_WholeAre you the kind of per­son that loves a mod­ern loft, min­i­mal­ism is a way of life, and ruff ma­te­r­i­al like ex­posed brick and poured ce­ment are key fea­ture in your de­sign, the Met­al Ke­tubah is just the thing for you!




Once you have picked the ma­te­r­i­al you would like your Ke­tubah print­ed on, don’t for­get to choose a size avail­able for your Ke­tubah, here are some fun com­par­isons to put it in­to per­spec­tive on our Size Blog Post.
