    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.

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

    $30.  haha

    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.

    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!!)

    Good luck!

    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!

    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.
