Each ketubah is hand-drawn, with watercolors, pencils, ink, drawings, photographs, computer generated images and hand-applied gilding. The finished piece is then digitally processed in order to ensure the highest quality print. Some designs have traditional Jewish symbols, and some are inspired by imagination.
