How to New Request New Artwork
Lantern Press is the industry leader for Souvenir, Gift, and Resort for creating new artwork. We specialize in customized, specific, high-quality artwork to be applied to a host of Made in USA products.
The graphics below demonstrate the art capabilities of Lantern Press. We have several styles and concepts, which will help you build a full set of graphics for your town, park, or any other location. Please see the guide below and use as a reference to guide our art department in the type of artwork that you think would work for you. For a complete list of graphic and illustration styles, please reference our 2016-2017 Catalog.
A crowd pleaser and one of our top-selling designs! Features city skylines or landmarks in a unique and minimal retro style.
We've created our own version of the historic mosaic art style that is truly one-of-a-kind. Can include anything from animals to sea creatures to various landmarks.
A way to create a modern and custom piece of art for your unique location. Looks great on all of our products and can include key phrases, words, historic dates, and even small icons.
Made to look like the old-school style of printing using texture, minimal color palettes, and unique composition. You will love these designs!
Center scene with a famous scene or main street. 3-4 scenes around the border to include local activities, monuments, wildlife, or lighthouse.
Made to look like weatherworn wooden signs from decades ago, we can namedrop any of the designs made (nearly 100 already).
The top sign is for where you’re standing, with the rest of the sign post pointing towards local destinations. Choose from one of our nine generic backgrounds and customize from there.
Often times larger cities, but we can do this for small towns as well. We will include a moon when we can. Bring your city to life in a fresh new way!
Our Technical Drawings are focused on details! From bridges, skyscrapers, dams, and airplanes, our technicals focus on those that want facts, details, and precision in their artwork.
We can draw any theme you request. From boots to bears, we either have it or will get it right to you. Please let us know your requests!
Scene Specific Artwork is one of our specialties. The viewer will know that the artwork is customized for a specific place. Lantern Press gives you the opportunity to carry art that isn’t generic!
On a daily basis, we receive requests for customized, extremely specific artwork for your location. Be it a casino, lighthouse, park, or anything else – we will create beautiful artwork for you.
Like what you see but with a few slight changes? No problem! We’re able to add, eliminate or exchange elements for the majority of our existing images. The images above illustrate how we can incorporate elements into a piece of artwork and make it specific to your location. This feature allows you the benefits of having an image specific to your location without the custom price tag.
Namedrops & Logodrops
We love customizing our images to represent your location! Simply pick your favorite design, provide your information, and leave the rest to us! With our large variety of Namedrop images available, we can create an image that represents your town, state, or region name. We can also add your logo to any of our images to create a branded look.

The timeline required to create new art depends on the complexity of the request. Namedrops and logodrops are completed within 2-3 business days. A new, custom image can take 2-4 weeks from start to finish, and we will typically send you a rough sketch for placement and content approval before finishing the design. Please note, if we are experiencing a high volume of requests, the timeline may increase. If you are under any type of deadline to have product in hand, please let us know in your initial art request. Once the artwork is approved, our standard turnaround time for production is 2 weeks plus ship time.
