** CHRISTMAS DEADLINE: Order by December 12 to receive in time for Christmas **

Custom black and white silhouette digitally made using a portrait that you submit. I use a digital app to draw the silhouette and write the name. I do not use a font for the name. It is my hand lettering, so each name is custom.

If you want to order a silhouette with color, check out my listing for a custom color silhouette:

******This listing is for a print that I will create for you digitally. Please note that you will receive the artwork in the mail. This is NOT a digital download.******

Dimensions: 5 x 7 inches, 8 x 8 inches or 8 x 10 inches

I carefully create each silhouette with great attention to detail. The clearer the photo, the more detail I can provide in the final print.

In order to begin your order, I will need the following items:
- Side profile photo (send in Etsy messenger or email to art [!at]
- The name of the person as you would like it written on the silhouette

Tips for a great profile photo:
- A clear photo is great, so be sure to place the camera close to the subject, rather than using the zoom function.
- Only one side of the subject's face should show in the photo. Make sure they're looking straight ahead and that you are taking the photo level with their face from the side. For younger children, it can be helpful to do it while they're distracted (i.e.: watching tv)

You will receive a digital proof before I send the final product to print. It takes 1-2 weeks for me to create the final proof and another week for printing and mailing. If you need it sooner, please reach out to me before purchasing. I will do my best to accommodate your needs.

If you have any questions before, during, or after your purchase, please do not hesitate to reach out to me via Etsy or email.

Thanks for stopping by!
