The Creation Process

With the Poems for Paws® Online Designer Tool, you can easily create unique, personalized and sentimental pieces to honor your beloved pets.

Although the Poems for Paws® can be created on a smartphone, we do find the experience is more enjoyable on a device with a larger viewing screen.

Giving as a Gift

Why Poetry?

Since the dawn of time, poetry has been used as a form of expression. The practice of poetry has long been used as a method of therapy to assist in bereavement and aid in the grief process.

Poetry allows someone to celebrate the good things and process the bad. Grief experts believe poetry can help process thoughts and feelings and help deal with painful emotions.

It is our hope our Poems for Paws® can provide some comfort through your grieving process.

How We Ship

Poems for Paws® ships USPS Priority Mail as it provides an expedited, reliable, and improved tracking and day-specific delivery service. Our frames and urns ship for free. Yes, FREE!!

The caveat, we can not control Mother Nature. Inclement weather, Covid… can delay the delivery process.

Return Policy

As all Poems for Paws® require customization, we do not offer refunds. Instead, we will work with you to fix the issue.

Color Disclaimer

Poems for Paws® attempts to display product images as accurately as possible. However, due to lighting, screen variations, and the relative inconsistencies of various display monitors and devices, colors may vary.

Upload Image Requirements

We do not require a maximum resolution, however as a rule of thumb, the higher the resolution or file size, the better quality print produced. If the image looks fuzzy to you, more than likely it will print fuzzy. If you need further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us.
