About Us


At Paintable Pictures, our mission is to delight customers through guided painting experiences. Paintable Pictures was founded in the summer of 2020 by Patrick and Peter out of Columbus, OH.

In summer of 2020, Patrick fell in love with the product concept of transforming a photo into a paint by number designs when trying to find a way to bring to life a photo of his son and mom at the zoo for a gift. But he was disappointed with what he found available to purchase. After weeks of combing through low-quality products shipped from overseas with 6-week lead times he was determined to find a better way.

Patrick linked up with Peter to build a gift-grade personalized paint by number product designed to be in customer's hands on gift-giving timelines - one week! In the process Patrick and Peter created an paint by number studio capable of designing and building dozens - and eventually hundreds - of bespoke custom kits daily. 

What makes Paintable Pictures different? A lot. We do every step of the design and build process in our Columbus, OH studio. From taking in the customer photo, to transforming that into a pleasant paint by number design, to curating a set of paint that brings the most from each photo, to daily outbound shipments to reach our customers on gift-grade timelines.

We've built our studio, design, and manufacturing process on in-house technology and systems that allows us to deliver over 100 bespoke products daily.  

As Paintable Pictures has grown the store had added other premium paint by number products to our assortment, including Schipper paint by number kits.
