Celebrate a special person, memory or moment in time with this personalised papercut portrait. A unique and thoughtful gift which will be treasured for years to come, custom papercut portraits make great keepsake gifts for mums, dads and grandparents and unique baptism / christening gifts for babies. They look great framed and hung as wall art in a nursery, living room, home office or bedroom.

How to Order A Custom Papercut Portrait
Please select the size required (mounted or unmounted) and add any personalisation requests such as background colour when ordering. Then provide a good quality digital photo of your subject including head and shoulders via email to email@example.com. Ideally, the best photos to work with are close ups with lots of facial detail and light. Don’t worry about the background in the photo or cropping as I will edit the design to produce a great head and shoulders composition with a plain colour background. If no colour preferences for the background are provided, I will use neutral colours. If you are unsure of the suitability of a photo, please feel free to contact me before ordering.
Current turnaround times for custom-made orders is 3-4 weeks (in addition to delivery time from UK). If your order is urgent, please let me know and if I have availability, I will prioritise your item.
