Paper stock options for the silhouette and/or background:

Specify in the notes if you want another paper stock option for the background—if no other stock is specified, the silhouette will be mounted on white cardstock.

After your order is placed, I will draw out your profile and send you a proof to approve before the silhouette is cut and mounted.

Please contact me if you have any questions.

Profile Photo tips:
1. Take the photo against a plain background with high contrast. I.e. against white or another neutral color.
2. Don't crop it in, allow the whole head/hair to be seen.
3. For the best photo of their profile: take the photo at the same level as your subject's head without looking down or up at them, but straight on at them.
4. Mouths closed look best.
5. Pro-tip for little ones, in their high chair or staring at the TV gives the best, most clear photos.
