Onlyinthewild – FAQ – FAQ

onlyinthewild faqWhat actually is letter art, or alphabet photography?

Letter art is taking photos of objects found within the UK and using them to make letters from. This is also known as alphabet photography, letter art, photo letters, name frames and the like. None of the letters are staged and should be taken in exactly the way they are found. None of the letter art letters taken by Angie are ‘staged’ – they are exactly as they were found in the ‘wilds’ of Great Britain.


Do you take all the alphabet pictures yourself?

Yes, ALL of the alphabet photographs are taken by myself, Angie during my travels around Great Britain. They are all in their natural state and none of them have been staged or enhanced in any way.


What Makes OnlyInTheWild Unique in relation to Letter Art and Alphabet Photography

In August 2015, Angie Hopgood was honoured to be elected a member of the prestigious Fine Art Trade Guild. This means that whenever you purchase a handmade completed frame it is manufactured to the highest standards and latest materials that are kind to the environment, being made to the high standards of the Fine Art Trade Guild. We do not know of any other provider of framed letter art photo’s that hold this prestigious award! So you always know that whenever you buy a handmade frame from Angie – it has been made to the highest standards and specs.


What sizes are the letter art letters?

The standard ‘one word’ alphabet photography name frame are 4″x6″ – these are limited to 9 separate letters maximum re the size of the final frame find out more here

When you wish to say more and have your letters to be displayed on more that 9 characters or on more than one line, then these will be 3″x2″ photos – see examples here


What colours are the photo letters available in?

For the 4″x6″ photo letters, these are available in both sepia and greyscale (black & white)

For bespoke name frames, like the wedding gifts, place names, family & pet names,  these are also available in sepia or greyscale, but I can also have these produced in blue or pink.


Are your frames handmade by you?

I originally had all name frames made for me, but I was not 100% satisfied with the quality or apperance. Since the spring of 2014, I attended a full picture framing teaching program where I learnt how to make frames myself. I have invested heavily in equipment to now produce frames myself. In August 2015, I was honoured to be elected a member of the prestigious Fine Art Trade Guild. You can find out more about the Fine Art Trade Guild here.


Do you make all your own ‘Letter Art Cards’?

The letter art cards have been produced entirely by me using the same collection of letter art photo letters that I have taken myself. To ensure that these are produced to the highest standards, I have sourced the production of the cards within England. These are NOT available in the shops on the high street, or elsewhere online.


Do I have to pay for postage?

How much does delivery cost?

We ONLY charge for delivery what it actually costs us, as we don’t want to make a profit from this like some companies do. We use only the most reliable courier service, but have to use a lot of packing as there is glass within the frame. So, included within the costs are a small ‘cost price’ charge for packing to ensure that your goods arrive with you safely. The total charge for delivery is £12.50.

How many letter art letters can my word in my name frame be?

If you are ordering 4″x6″ letters, then these are available from 1 letter – 9 letters wide. However due to the size of the completed frame – delivery would have to be by arrangement only to avoid breakage

If you want to have more letters/words, then you can order our bespoke name frames using 2″x3″ letters, these allow you to say a lot more and add dates for special occasions. If you send me a 5″x3″ jpeg photograph (not inkjet print), of a photo you want added into the frame, then please call me to discuss this and I will add to where you want free of charge.
