We print our design using the latest in digital industrial garment printing. The quality of our canvases equals or surpasses handpainted canvas. We have heard this from our customers and our needlework shop retailers.
All of our canvases are created with thick, expensive, 100% cotton needlepoint canvas. Zweigart Mono Deluxe Needlepoint canvas is widely regarded as the best material available for needlepoint canvas. The printing process utilizes high-quality brand-name inks, to produce radiant imagery in vivid, long-lasting color.
Most customizations are done at no extra charge. These include canvas enlargement, image orientation, changes to text or fonts, and color changes. Others can be done for a small customization surcharge. More extensive customizations, or a custom canvas created to spec, are priced on an individual basis.
No. A needlepoint canvas is sold by itself, with any embellishments, if available. However, many canvases offer the option to also purchase a thread pack at additional cost.
We match colors on the canvas to DMC Pearl Cotton thread #5 and pack it up for you in a clear ziplock bag for convenient safekeeping. It also includes 2 tapestry needles. Some threadpacks include specialty threads, such as Kreinik Metallic.
Pepita Needlepoint is a small business that operates online. The company is owned and operated by needleart professionals residing in Brooklyn, NY. We design and produce the needlepoint canvases ourselves. We handle the orders ourselves. We talk to customers ourselves (try us right now, we are at 718-395-7370, M-F, 9am-5pm ET). We write the stitch guides ourselves. We even built and operate the website ourselves.

Actually, Pepita is not anyone's name (at least not anyone we know). The word "pepita" is the Hungarian word for the checkerboard or houndstooth pattern. It is pronounced with the emphasis on the first syllable, and the "ta" pronounced "tuh."
