Copyright Notice: The copy of the poem you purchase will be original, and will be yours to use as you see fit except for publication. The author will hold the copyright to all material, and in rare instances may at a later time publish generic pieces-pieces not containing names of the poems' purchasers or recipients.

Recommendations for Presentation of Poetry

You might read the poem aloud to its recipient and present a matted, framed copy.  Note the cross-section of fonts applied to sample poems on this website.  The purpose is to help you visualize some possibilities.  

Most customers want to receive their copy by e-mail, then manage for themselves the details of physical presentation-font type and size, type of paper and mat, color and style of frame.  If you prefer, Custom Poetry will mat and frame the poem for you.  Just e-mail, mail, or phone a request to that effect: we will work out the details.

In small print at the bottom of each piece will be the author's name and the year of copyright.  A copy bearing the author's signature will follow by U.S. mail, or can be sent overnight.
