WELCOME TO OUR UNIVERSE
– a hand drawn and stylish universe where we are probably best known for our NEWBORN 1:1 birth posters. The posters are created with a hand-drawn, graphic illustration of your VERY OWN baby, scaled to estimated birth length and with your baby’s birth data written at the bottom. This way, you can always remember just how small your greatest miracle actually was <3. A NEWBORN 1: 1 poster always measure 50 × 70 cm.
In addition to NEWBORN 1:1, we have our LITTLE MEMORIES posters. We create these posters with a hand drawn illustration to cherish your favourite moments you would like as a keepsake to decorate your walls.
Personalised posters are available in sizes A4, A3 and 50 × 70 cm.
THE STORY OF ORIGINAL LINES
On 21 May 2016, illustrator and graphic designer Maria welcomed her first grandchild, Sylvester, to the world. Sylvester’s mother wanted a baby illustration of Sylvester scaled to size, and instead, Maria suggested creating a unique and personal birth poster drawn from a newborn photo of Sylvester. This is how the idea for ORIGINAL LINES and our NEWBORN 1:1 birth poster was born.
Since then our product range has grown to include our LITTLE MEMORIES posters and SPECIAL ORDERS, which hand drawn and created from the photo you upload with your order. Maria designs each poster with utter attention to detail, and she carefully draws each line on the illustration to make sure it captures the magic of the moment you wish to celebrate. You will always receive proofreading via email before we have your poster printed and delivered, which usually takes 1-2 workdays after your approval.
We love to create posters that are unique and cherish those special and meaningful moments in life which are often left hidden away on your phone’s camera roll. We care about your wishes, and if your photo is missing a piece of a foot or you may want several photos drawn together, we will try to make this work! And no matter what, you have not bought your poster until you’ve approved it. The most important thing is that you’re happy with the final result.
