How to order an Arabic name?

Monday, March 5, 2018 12:02:41 AM Asia/Dubai

Here at Crafty Dust, Arabic names can be made in a variety of calligraphy designs! Whether it is to decorate a baby's arrival, a child's bedroom, a graduation reception, or a wedding, the outcomes are endless.

 

DESIGNS:

Deciding on the name's design is the first step. If you happen to have a logo designed by a calligrapher, it will be the easiest to use since it's all set and ready. 

If you don't, just google the name you want with a few relevant keywords, for example: 'Ahmed Arabic Calligraphy Images' and you will find a wealth of images of the name in different calligrpahy styles. Choose your favorite(s) and we can work together from there.

 

a) Letter Names

Whether it's a specially designed logo or a design from the internet, there are ususally some minor modifications to be made at Crafty Dust. Some letters and/or dots may need to be joined to make the name 1 piece. Some letters need to be slightly stretched to make the name self-standing if that's the requirement. No matter the adjustment, it will be drawn up and emailed to you for approval before fabrication starts.

Please note that if you want a name that is self-standing, please choose a design that has at least 2 resting points for it to stand without toppling. If you just want it to hang, then it doesn't matter what design you choose.

 

b) Board Names

There are some cases however where the letters of the name cannot be joined because it will affect legibility, or where there is too much 'ta7reek' you prefer like to keep. For these cases there is a different way of making the names by carving them out of a board. Similarly, the final design will be emailed for approval before starting the work.

 

c) Names with Butterfly

This design is currently very popular for girl names and the font is fixed. So there is no need to provide a logo or google name designs if you opt for this choice. The requirement is only the name written in Arabic. Pleaase allow a couple of days for the design to be made and emailed to you for approval.

All the above designs are made in standard sizes that are large enough to be beautiful for display.
