Flourish Family Crests | Original art by Jamie Hansen

Unique Gifts

Personalized artwork makes memorable anniversary gifts, wedding gifts, birthday gifts, or can celebrate your family just because. I love hearing all the stories behind these pieces as we make them. Let’s create a custom coat of arms to celebrate your family’s story.

A family crest is a little like a personal logo - they were awarded by the college or arms when a person could could prove that their family had a certain heritage.  

Today you don’t need any qualifications to create your own family crest. A custom family crest is a unique gift idea for a wedding, birthday, or anniversary.  

These pieces bring together elements of your life, your interests, or your heritage. My family crests combine your ideas with vintage coats of arms and drawings to create a completely unique piece of art.


first anniversary

The first anniversary gift is paper: These artworks are created on professional quality watercolor paper. Add the flowers that you carried on your wedding day and the date of your wedding to your artwork.

second anniversary

The second anniversary gift is cotton. I work on Arches watercolor paper, which is made of long 100% cotton fibers. Celebrate your love story with an artwork on paper made from cotton.

conjugal coat of arms

conjugal coats of arms

for any wedding or anniversary

Conjugal Coats of Arms show two families side-by-side. They celebrate the union of two families. Create a coat of arms or historically inspired piece to celebrate your timeless love.



An illustration of your coat of arms makes a regal statement on wedding invitations, save-the date cards, or even place cards or wedding programs. Create a custom family crest to tell your love story or coordinate with your wedding colors.


Use your coat of arms for wedding invitations

Your coat of arms can be based on a historical artwork, or can be created around your  interests.  We can create a custom artwork that you can add to cards, invitations, even placecards.  We can use the colors and flowers from your wedding in the artwork to tie it all together.

Use your custom coat of arms as a unique guestbook

Commission an original coat of arms as a unique guestbook. A small piece can be placed in a wide mat and used as a unique guestbook at your reception.

Mat it with a wide mat and no glass on the frame. Collect your guests’ signatures and notes around your art before you add glass to the piece.



Give original art as a wedding gift

These custom coats of arms make unique gifts.  Create one to celebrate your own wedding or anniversary, or create one to give to the newlywed couple. Commission a conjugal coat of arms, to show two family names side by side.  Use coats of arms from historical research or create your own crests to represent the couple.
