frequently asked questions
• Can people be done from photos ?
Yes. If customers bring a photo to the promotion, it must be a 100% profile, not a three quarter view. It should include some of the chest area and all of the head and hair. Right side profile works best.
• Can I get an extra copy ?
Generally no. It is up to the discretion of the person hosting the event. I am there to do as many silhouettes as possible in the allotted time. If I start offering extra copies, everyone will want them and if I am having to adhere to a strict time schedule, this would make me late and possibly dissapoint other people waiting who may have to miss out entirely. If people would like any extra copies, they can visit my website as I offer mailorder.
• Can any age child be silhouetted ?
Yes, even as young as several days old, as long as you can hold the head up. Four to six months is a good time to start as the child can usually support their own head.
• Can I reproduce the silhouettes ?
Yes, I often tell people to scan them into their computer and create Christmas cards, stationary, iron on transfers etc. As long as you are using them for your personal use, you have my permission to reproduce the silhouettes. Using them in some commercial venture would require my permission and compensation to be discussed.
• Can you group silhouettes together ?
At a promotion I do single silhouettes only. If you would like grouped silhouettes, please visit my website, look at the options available and order by mail. The largest mounting board that I have available is 28cm x 35.6cm (11" x 14"). It would be possible to group four or maybe five subjects together. The 28cm x 35.6cm (11" x 14") mat would accommodate three or possibly four grouped.
• Can I have the silhouettes cut full size ?
Not at the promotion. I do offer to do them at home from photographs, but I charge double the price of the smaller silhouettes. Traditionally silhouettes were cut in miniature.
