Staghorn (Antler) Walking sticks with dog pictures.




 Exact shapes of antler handles vary!


We can also fit pictures or badges into cow horn knob handles like this:





 Please note: It is often not possible to fit a picture to a stick already in stock so we will normally make the stick and fit the picture during the process of building the stick.

Images must be as clear as possible if you want us to use your own. Some cropping of the picture is normal so that it will fit the space available on the stick. Unsuitable backgrounds may be edited out WHERE POSSIBLE.



















How do we use your photo?

Here's a typical photo of three dogs - actually my own! The subject for the picture stick is the one in the middle.







First we crop the picture on the computer to leave just the subject. If you send a picture in the post then your own picture is not cut or used in the stick at all - so you can have it back!


Then we resize it to fit in the stick and print it on special paper.



The picture is set into a hole drilled in the stick handle and a clear plastic cap is fitted. It is then filed and sanded to shape and polished to a clear, glass-like finish:
