If your creativity is limited, you can also created custom artworks such as a personalised word art. To add a special touch to your favorite quote as a couple, you can place your fingerprints.

The first thing you have to do is stamp your fingerprints and your partner’s on a piece of paper. Just stamp directly and avoid rolling your fingers from side to side as if you are applying for a job at a strict company. A simple, clear press will do the trick. Do this a couple of times until you have achieved the perfect one you want to use.

Scan the paper with your fingerprints and make sure to use the highest resolution possible. The file should be saved in bitmap. With the use of a graphics software, you should be able define the lines more clearly. Play around with settings until you get the right one. After you are done, convert the file to vector which will give you the option to resize.

One you are done, you can put in your favorite quote and style it the way you like. The possibilities are endless as you mix and match. Once you are done, you can print it at home but if you prefer screen printing then you will have to go to a local shop. You decide on the printing option they have available. Different printing style also corresponds to a different price. Do not forget that your file should be saved at a resolution of 300 dpi. With a beautifully made personalised word art, you will be able to treasure it for a number of decades at the very least.
