Silhouettes - simple, traditional, yet full of charm - recapture a piece of the past, yet remain the least expensive form of portraiture.

Today silhouette artists are hard to find, as few are skilled in the art form. Order yours today from a professional portrait artist with over 25 years of experience in silhouette cutting, and enjoy your heirloom forever.

The Silhouette Artist is available for parties, corporate, and non-profit functions. Just call Artful Heirlooms at (866) 212-7288 for details.

Pricing
Each silhouette arrives in a traditional black 5x7 inch mat with an oval opening. Optionally, you can order your silhouettes to arrive framed. Please scroll down for details, including important instructions on taking profile photos.

Testimonial

The silhouettes arrived today and they are fabulous!  I am shocked by how much of the kids came out in those two profiles - you truly are a gifted
artist.  I know my husband and all the grandparents will be blessed by them. Thank you for doing such a fantastic job and getting them to me so quickly!

Best wishes,
Bethany

Instructions:

* Photograph your subjects close up, individually, preferably facing right.
* Show entire head and shoulders.
* Position subject against a plain dark or light background such as a wall, curtain, or sheet of poster board. The background should contrast with the skin tone.
* Get on eye level with your subject. This may require the photographer to be seated while a child stands.
* Face should be completely relaxed with lips together NOT SMILING!
* Chin should be level
* Have subject turn head until your view is in perfect profile
* Place long hair behind shoulders so neck shows. In the cutting, very long hair will disappear over shoulders, unless up in a bun or ponytail.
* Please provide the ages of children or teens.
* When in doubt, send more than one shot
* If ordering only a single with no duplicates, let us know whether you have a preference on the direction it faces

Photos mailed will be returned upon request with artwork. Allow 2 weeks from receipt of photos to date of shipping.
