What a cutout looks like

Minimum Resolution for Life Size Custom Cutouts

To ensure that your cutout is the best it can be we have a set of resolution and photo standards. If you have any doubts or concerns on the quality of your images, please check these guidelines. If you still have questions, please don't hesitate to contact us.

Low quality vs high quality cutout picture

Images Should be at least 5mp

Photos printed or developed by a commercial printer or a sublimation photo printer are the best. Photos printed on a non-commerical printer or home printer will show dots when enlarged. When taking a photograph with a digital camera, always put it to the highest settings. If you need more information on that, check out our "Taking Your Photos" directions directly below.

Taking Your Photos

  • Take it vertically, not horizontally
  • Try not to use zoom , just get closer.
  • Do not cut the feet or arms off.
  • Light backgrounds are better
  • The auto setting is usually fine for taking photos for cutouts.
  • Sharp, focused, and clear images work the best.
  • Negatives or slides are not currently accepted
