Happy 2013 Bees!
Just wondering – how much did you spend on your ketubah? Do you have any suggestions on good sites to look? Fiance and I have found a style we like (http://ketubahworks.com/products/floral-wreath-ketubah/), but I wasn’t sure if this price was on par with what I should expect. It looks like it would come to ~$500 before shipping. What did you spend?

We haven’t bought ours yet, but the ones we like will probably come out around 300-350 before we get it framed. We’re budgeting about $500 for the ketubah and framing.
You can try http://www.ketubah.com as well, our Rabbi recommended it.

@ivoryowl: Happy New Year! Ketubah prices vary depending on the artist, size and paper they use. They can sell anywhere from $100-800. The average cost is around $200-300.
A great site to check out is http://www.jessyjudaica.com or http://www.ketubahgallery.com

@cekpet86: I also got my Ketubah at Ketubah.com… We spent about $325 but it was well worth it! Its gorgeous and great quality!

I told myself I wouldn’t spend more than $300 on a ketubah but I didn’t like anything in that price range. So Darling Husband and I made our own. We used a photo from our engagement shoot, and placed the text we wanted over it. Had it printed through a site online onto a thick board. The printing was the only cost. We were both super happy with it.

Thanks for the advice! Jessyjudaica and ketubah.com seem to have some great options!
@Meowkers: I love that you made your own, it is gorgeous! I’m tempted to make my own as well, but w/o engagement pictures I’m a bit intimidated. If I was an artist I’d definitely paint my own. Hmmm…

@Meowkers: duh! Just thought of an awesome picture we could use (a landscape of FIs favorite city that we took just after he proposed). so follow up question- where did you print yours? Is it on photo paper or something else? Thanks!

I did the same thing as Meowkers, but made digital art in Photoshop. We both like abstracts so it’s perfect for us. The only cost was the $40.00 to print on to canvas!
(as a side note- I recommend going to an art store and picking up an acid free, archival pen for signing it!!)

We had our Ketubah hand made by a local Jewish artist. It’s made on a canvas paper and is totally beautiful! We paid 500$

@ivoryowl: we got one from Jen Raichman on etsy (Urban Collective). It’s beautiful. She has a range of prices, too.

$0 🙂 an artistic friend of mine is making ours as a wedding present. My parents had theirs made by an artist friend of theirs too, so I guess it’s kind of becoming family tradition!

@MissAndie: wow!! You made that in photoshop? it is stunning! hmm so many options!! thanks for the tip on the pen. Where did you print yours?

Thanks! Yeah, took me some time, but after a failed attempt, this was the version 2 release, ha ha… I had it printed through canvaspeople.com..

Ours was $500. But that was because we needed custom text (in both Hebrew and English), due to being a same-sex couple. It would have been about half that otherwise. It’s the “Embrace” ketubah from Twentieth Century Illuminations.

@ivoryowl: honestly I don’t remember where we had it printed. I think we just googled some websites that do custom printing. And as another posted suggested we used acid free pens for signing.
