General Photo Tips & Guidelines
We cannot and will not process any orders with copyrighted images of celebrities, movie characters, video characters etc without express written consent from the owner of the materials.
If you place an order using a copyrighted image, we will contact you immediately for proof of your rights to use the image. If you cannot present that proof the order will be cancelled and you will be refunded minus $5 or 10%, whichever is greater.
We can take just about any image and create a Life Size Custom Cutout. Please check out this photo tips page to see the minimum standards and guidelines.
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.
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 the least zoom possible, 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
Scanned in Photos
Scanned photos should be at least 200dpi enlarged to print/order size or 1200dpi at original photo size.
