What is a Once Upon This Time Birth Poster?

The Birth Poster is a series of unique and timeless illustrations

that are scaled to the baby's actual length at birth.

How does it work?

Once you give us your child's birth details name, length, weight and date of birth and choose

your preferred illustration, our design tool takes all this information and scales the illustration proportionally. These details are all printed at the bottom of the poster as a keepsake. 

What is the price of the birth poster?

The price is R850 if you choose an existing illustration

and R1500 if we are drawing it from your own baby photo.
