Do you create portraits of only cats and dogs?

Cats and Dogs are certainly the most requested, although we can also design for a whole vast range of animals. 

We’ve created wall arts for dogs, cats, birds, horses, micro-pigs, and even hedgehogs! We certainly look forward to receiving challenging and unique design requests from you. Send them through!


How many pets can I add to the design of my portrait?

We are quite flexible with our designs. We can actually accommodate up to 9 pets in one custom pet portrait.  We have a few designs which are available on our website, check out our multi canvas here

We can also mix and match different costumes based on your preference. We’d love to hear your request, feel free to reach out to us and we’ll work out the best combination with you.


Do you do humans?

We have done various different combinations including humans.  Please reach out to us to discuss your design idea.  We would love to be challenged!


How do I know if the photo I have is good enough to use

If you follow these simple guidelines, your photo will definitely be good enough to use!   

  • Make sure the photo is taken in good lighting (outdoor daylight is best)
  • Try to snap that shot at eye level with your pet
  • Get a close-up shot so we can really see your pet's unique features
  • Make sure your pet's face is in focus, don’t let it get blurry!
  • Make sure that all their features (e.g. ears!) are in frame - we can't magically add them in the portrait if they aren't found in the original photo

Once you submit your image and proceed with the payment, we will be conducting a thorough assessment and advise you if an alternative image will be needed. 

It is always a good idea to upload as many images as possible that would fit the above guidelines.

Please be advised that if an image submitted is not suitable for the design, identifying the correct image may lengthen our delivery time by a few days.

Will I see the finished artwork before it gets printed?

YES!  We understand that our designs are quite unique and personal. We offer digital proofs once we finish your design for a final review before it gets printed.  Just another way we make sure you fall in love with your design and display your pet's face proudly on your wall!


Can I request to see another image to be used?

Yes, you can. However, to remunerate our designers fairly for their efforts, we require a fee of $30 as a change in the originally chosen costumes or images entails our designers to start the design process from scratch and invest the same amount of time and effort as they had for the initial artwork.


Can I request to change the costume/style?

What are different Canvas dimensions on offer?

We print onto four different sized canvas frames. Each frame is gallery-ready and high quality. All canvas frames have a gallery standard depth of 1.25" thickness.

Frame sizes are:

20cm X 30cm

This is a favourite for those looking to gift a portrait. Best suited for a table or desk display

30cm X 45cm

A great mid-sized canvas which looks perfect in entrance halls, living spaces, bedrooms, and of course... above your pet's bed! 

40cm X 60cm

Our favorite size. You can't fault this size; it's a fantastic large print and you get to see the details of your portrait up close. We love this one!

60cm X 90cm

Do you have a large wall which you would like to fill with a quality piece of artwork? This size will definitely suit that purpose.  Due to the size of the poster, we work closely with you to make sure the image you submit is high-resolution and crisp enough to display well.

Can I purchase just the digital file?

Yes, we offer digital file options for almost all of our designs. The digital file size is 3000 pixels (px) in width and 4500 pixels (px) in height. (Any commercial use of the digital size file, in whole or in part, is strictly prohibited unless expressly authorised by NextGenPaws Pet Portraits in writing. NextGenPaws Pet Portraits makes no warranties or representations regarding the suitability, quality, or accuracy of the digital size file for any particular purpose. Users accept the digital size file "as is”.)

Can you change the background color?

We are happy to alter the background color.  We can work with you to identify the best color that would suit your pet’s color as well as the wall you are planning on displaying your artwork.


Can you add or remove something from my pet photo? 

Yes, our team can remove or add virtually anything to your custom print. It would be even better if you’re able to provide us with a visual / image of what you would like to add to the print.
