Life Size Cut Outs
Want a life size stand up of someone?
We can do that!
Send us the picture to scan, or a digital file of your person, and we'll print a cut out in life size on 3/16" gatorboard. We put a triangle stand on the back so it will stand by itself.
We see life size stand ups used in tradeshow booths, at events and conferences, store front displays and we've even done them for the lobby of a Broadway show! Cardboard cut outs are lots of fun.
We can scan your photo, or you can do it yourself. Photos for life size cut outs should be 72-100 dpi in their final size. You will need at least a 4 megapixel digital camera image to work well, and that's if the person fills the photo.
Maximum size is 36"x72". Remember, we need to think about the structural strength and stability of life size stand ups, so it's a good idea not to have arms sticking straight out, people standing on one foot, etc. We ship these folded in two, with tape on the back serving as a hinge. The stand on the back velcros to the two halves, keeping them upright and straight.
Pricing: $199 for a single cutout. Call us for quantity pricing.
That includes your photo direct printed on white gatorboard with an easel back. Shipping FedEx three day service will cost $30-45 depending on your location. For large projects, please call.
