For when you can't physically be there, post yourself!
We all have events that we can't get to. Whether it's the family Christmas back home, an overseas wedding you just can't make, or even the office social gathering and you're home nursing a broken bone! For any event that you wish you could attend, post a mini wooden stand-in.
These mini-figures would also make amazing place settings at any event.
The recipient can pose the freestanding wooden figure on the dinner table, on the mantlepiece, next to the sherry - anywhere they like. You can still be in all the photos and they can toast your good health - you just might not get to eat the cake!
Can't be home for Christmas - post yourself. Can't make the bachelor party - send a "mini-me" to be seen in all the selfies.
How to order:
We just need a full-length photo. From the top of their head to the bottom of their feet. And honestly, it might save you hours of scrolling time if you take a new photo on your phone just for this.
The very best images:
Include the whole person on their own - with nothing “bumping” into the person like a plant, a pet or another person!
Have a little bit of an interesting pose. We’re not looking for flying superman poses here but maybe hands on hips or something.
Have enough light on the face to see your dazzling smile!
Include something colourful in your outfit. It’s a full-colour representation of you, tutus are encouraged!
Are in focus and high resolution.
If we have any concerns about the image we’ll let you know but if you follow the above guidelines you should be on to a winner.
You can upload your image here, or send your image to firstname.lastname@example.org quoting your order number.
Who would love this?
Everybody! If you would normally visit someone and can’t this year, send your wooden substitute.
Our Post Yourself mini-me is made totally in-house in our studio in Cheltenham. From the photo you provide, we digitally enhance your image and print them directly onto a gorgeous cherry wood veneer that is a sturdy 6mm thick. We then cut each individual out on our lovely laser machines. We add a tab by the feet so each figure can stand in its own circular base.
Your wooden figure will measure approx 130mm tall and the wood we use is 6mm thick so your mini-figure will feel substantial and not fall over.
