Dachshund Tartan Picture

Thank you to Tim for his amazing service – we were visiting friends near Bridport a few weeks ago and saw the pictures at Bridport market but were travelling back to the Highlands with only hand luggage – we ordered a bespoke picture from Tim (using family tartan) which arrived this week for a wedding present for friends who own a miniature dachund – they will absolutely adore the picture – thank you for your help and prompt service – we will definitely be ordering more for gifts !

Beautiful piece

Tim created a custom piece for us showing Lands End to London cycle route in wheels and pedal of bike, using the cyclist’s planned Strava route. It’s a really beautiful piece, couldn’t be more pleased with it. Tim was incredibly helpful throughout – thank you so much!

Jo Reilly

Female Nordic Walker

At Christmas my daughter’s gift to me was a female Nordic Walker pecage framed with my walks around Osmotherley, North Yorkshire . I am absolutely delighted with my very special personal gift .
I am now retired & have been Nordic walking with my group for 12 months, my daughter knows how enthusiastic I am about Nordic walking & she had seen your Xmas stall on a visit to Winchester, & this gave her the idea.
I am especially thrilled as they were also given as prizes at Purbeck Nordic walking festival.
Thank you.

Mrs A Overton

Wonderful Gift!

I am so pleased with the custom made picture I ordered from Tim. I contacted Tim to see if it was possible to make a particular picture. He replied promptly with options. The actual print arrived very quickly once ordered. It looks absolutely fabulous! Thank you so much.

Susan Barbour

Brilliant gift idea!

Bought this as a gift for my friends new home and the quality way exceeded expectations! Both the picture itself and the frame! Tim was quick to reply to any questions I had and also provided quick delivery. The picture is absolutely beautiful, an amazing idea



You’re a star! Thank you so much again and again!

Original and personalised designs

Tim’s sports designs are a wonderful way of recording special personal achievements and bringing back memories. I also love the animal designs. Tim’s prompt replies to email queries, ability to change backgrounds etc according to preference, and professional approach make it a pleasure to shop for those unique presents. I have been back twice to purchase more!

Highly recommend!

Fathers’ Day gift

An excellent Fathers’ Day gift.
Tim was so helpful and took the time to talk me through various options when I visited his stall in Salisbury market. The images that he creates are so lovely that I knew choosing something made by Tim would be perfect. My boys enjoyed choosing their gift for their Dad; we selected a personalised bicycle image with the wheels of maps of where we currently live and where their Dad grew up. They liked the Union Jack bike frame too. Their Dad loved the present and it now sits in pride of place.

It’s lovely.. thank you very much

Hi……my picture has arrived already! It’s lovely thank you very much. My friend is dachshund-mad so I know she will love it.

Many thanks for your efficiency and willingness to help out.


Return customer! 🙂

I’ve bought three of Tim’s fantastic pictures now; two for my husband for his 40th (one of a skier and one of a golfer) and one for a colleague for his birthday (a bike), and they were both over the moon with their gifts. The variety of options and combinations make each picture feel unique, and the quality, attention to detail, and sheer visual impact make them an excellent present in my opinion. Tim is always quick to reply and no request is ever too much trouble. Delivery is always quick and on time, with all parcels to date arriving in perfect condition. Highly recommend!!

A superb and unique gift

I ordered 2 of the Road Racing bicycle pictures to mark our ride from St Malo, France to Bilbao, Spain. Each was subtly different and was customised with the addition of a photograph.

I am delighted with the results and highly recommend Tim and Gecko Designs. We’ll be back!

Vizsla picture

We asked Tim to produce a picture from a photo of our Vizsla on point and we are so pleased with the result we have had a second one made for a present. Really good website with large selection of fabrics and choice of subjects. Thank you.

VW Camper Psychedelic T-Shirt Organic and Vegan

“What a prompt delivery! Thank you so much and I am delighted with both pictures”

We saw Tim at the market in Winchester on Sunday on our way to the NewForest. I spotted the pictures on his stall of various activities that were filled in with appropriate maps. I asked if he had a runner, which he had and I asked if he could do a map of Brighton and Hove. He offered to do a digital version and email it to me for approval. I was very pleased with the digital version and asked for a hard copy, which I received today.
I know my friend (my running buddy) will be delighted with this present for her Birthday.



My partner recently cycled from John O’Groat to Lands End and for his birthday I bought from Tim the “JOGLE cyclist. It’s a wonderful memento of his achievement and hangs proudly on the wall. He was so pleased with it! Good service all round particularly as the price includes postage. Many thanks Tim for all your help with this.

Absolutely Great

Hi Tim

It’s arrived at my desk and it’s absolutely great – and Sarah loves it too!  She loves that we got both Goudhurst and Merriments Lane on it, so thank you so much!

So well packaged too – we’ve wrapped it up again and she’s taking it home tonight.

Thanks again, Vicki


We saw these unusual pictures at a market in Winchester a couple of weeks ago. Took a card from Tim as we wanted a specific map for our running girl picture. We found a link for a map of the Helsinki Marathon which we sent to Tim. He found a far better map and produced an amazing picture for us of a girl running. We are absolutely thrilled with it, the picture has turned out far better than expected. It isn’t a map of the whole route but he has managed to incorporate major parts of it. Our daughter is running her first marathon in Helsinki in May and we plan to give this to her afterwards – I know she will love it. Thank you Tim for your prompt replies and for producing such an exceptional picture.

Sarah Billson

Lovely Gift

Bought as a gift, recipients delighted with quality and originality. Very pleasant and helpful, would be happy to recommend.

Sarah, Wareham

Absolutely brilliant!

I commissioned a personalised Ironman picture from Tim for my son. He was hugely patient through all the emails I sent and has produced what we had hoped for, only even better than we’d anticipated. Thank you, Tim.

Vanessa Andrews, Oxfordshire

I love these pictures!

We saw the pictures and bought one for friends whilst on holiday in Dorset. We liked it so much, we ordered more for friends when we got home! The service from Elaine and Tim, as well as the quality of the pictures, is excellent.

Andrew Roach, Bromley

Fantastic Print & Excellent Service

I contacted Tim with a few requests for a print I was interested in purchasing as a gift for my husband. Tim was extremely helpful and gave me various options for personalisation and frames. The print is fantastic and it is in a beautiful frame. Highly recommend and will certainly order again in the future.

Lisa Bethom

Skier Picture

The picture arrived beautifully packed & a couple of days after I ordered it. It’s a perfect 21st birthday present for my son who is working in the Alps. It is very personal with a map of the resort & name & date details included on the picture, hopefully it will remind him of all his good times. I’m sure he will love it, I certainly do.

Brenda May

Married in Paphos

So happy with our new picture. It is a map of Paphos where we got married and a map of Kingston near Swanage where our wedding party will be at the end of the month. We received a warm, friendly service from start to finish. We highly recommend Geckodesigns for a unique and extra special gift at very affordable prices. Thank you, we hope to speak with you again soon. Hayley and Jamie

Fat Cat Pecage

Having seen some designs displayed at a market in Hythe, I knew this cat would be a perfect gift for my cat loving soon to be sister-in-law. Lovely design, super speedy crafting and delivery, could not have asked for better. A smashing idea and product., a great gift.
