HOW TO ORDER YOUR TOPPER : :
After making your purchase:
- Please let us know your choice of acrylic colors.
- Email your hi-res (300 dpi) profile photo to: images [!at] simplysilhouettes.com. Not sure which photo to use? Feel free to send several and we will choose the best. Keep in mind that we draw your silhouettes directly from the photos, so please select the pose you want in the finished product.
- You will receive your complimentary proof for one photo within 1-3 business days and you can make any corrections at that time. (If you don’t hear from us during that time, please check your spam/junk mail folder, as our messages occasionally end up there.) Once you are happy with your order, we’ll get it into production.
Please note that prepayment is required for a proof.
**If you would like to see a proof of more than one photo, there will be a $5 for each additional silhouette that you request.
If you have additional silhouettes that you’d like to add (children, pets, etc.) we are happy to do that, but there is a fee of $10 per silhouette.
For Head-Only Toppers
- Have your subject stand or sit up straight, in profile, against a light colored background.
- Position yourself right at their eye level so that you are not looking up or down at them.
- Make sure to include their entire head, shoulders and hair in the photo. The subject should have a relaxed, natural expression on their face. For brides, we recommend having their hair up in a bun or ponytail so that their neckline is visible. If you want your hair long, please have it back behind your shoulders.
- If you would like the kiss topper, please send a photo of the two of you kissing, as we cannot create that silhouette out of two individual photos.
For Full Body Toppers:
- Please make sure that there is space in between the bodies, so that each body can be seen distinctly.
- Poses can work with couples facing each other or facing forward, but please be in the pose you desire for the topper. Please take a look at our examples shown here for some ideas.
- Brides – please have your hair in the style that you would like on the topper.
*Please make sure that your entire bodies are in the photo. (We can’t draw what we can’t see.)
*Don’t have your wedding apparel yet or don’t want to be seen in your wedding dress before the wedding? Please send us your photo, in your desired pose, and send along photo of your dress. And grooms – please wear a suit jacket and long pants.
*Please wear shoes, unless you’d prefer to be barefoot in the silhouette.
*If you have a photo that you’re wondering about, please email it to us at images(at)simplysilhouettes.com prior to placing your order, so we can take a look at it and let you know if it will work.
