Our personalised family silhouette print makes a great gift for parents, grandparents, or simply to decorate your own home.
You know sometimes you capture the perfect shot of the kids or the family, but one of them is blinking and one of them doesn't like the face they had pulled or the jumper they were wearing that day. And there's always at least one person that just doesn't like the way they look in any photos that exist of them on the entire planet. Well, this is your solution!
Our gorgeous silhouette prints are created from your own photographs, stripping back the fussy and distracting details and backgrounds, and leaving only the stars of the show in silhouette with one or two important details picked out to give it style and substance.
This personalised family print also has the option for you to add a line or two of custom text to the print. So you might choose a name and date for example.
Designed using a palette of contemporary and vintage-inspired colours, our prints are professionally produced and are made to last a lifetime.
Your silhouette can be illustrated in a variety of colours and you make your colour choices from our colour swatch shown in the product image.
You need to select a background colour and then choose a colour for each silhouette and up to 2 accent colours. For groups of 3 silhouettes or more there will be an additional charge. Please contact us for a bespoke fee.
You can upload your image when placing your order or you can e-mail your photo to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Choose a photo that shows off the individuals best. Images holding hands or playing work well. Make sure your photo is of a good enough quality to show up details, and remember that wispy hair and clothing add to the charm of the final silhouette.
We will remove any unnecessary detail, such as the background, other people and items, unless they are key to the image (such as toys). Your print will be designed in the orientation that best suits the photo provided.
Once your silhouette has been designed we will e-mail you a digital proof. You can then change the colours and text before we print. You cannot change to a new photo, but we can make small tweaks to the silhouette if needed. We will only then print your design once it is approved.
Really, who wouldn't love this? For any occasion that you might want to give a photograph, you can give this instead. A beautiful grouping of grandchildren would make an excellent gift for your Mum, and just a bit less ordinary than yet another photograph.
For Dad's, both new and old, they are a stylish way to show the brilliant relationship between father and child, but without getting too twee. Equally, they are amazing first Mother's Day gifts (or any Mother's Day really - it will make her cry regardless right?)
Our unique family silhouette prints are individually designed to your requirements and a giclee print is then created using ultrachromatic professional inks on archival enhanced matte paper.
