The Family Silhouette Ornament
**Ornaments are available in July and then from September through January**
Your hand drawn silhouettes will be carefully engraved into wood for you to display on your Christmas tree or year round!
And because of how much time we put into making your detailed illustrations, we believe you should have a version to hang on your wall! So every NEW silhouette purchased for an ornament will receive a complimentary 5x7 print.
· 1/4 inch thick and approximately 3.5 inches round
· birch is left raw (so there is a contrast) and the other woods are hand polished with a natural beeswax finish
· strung with a piece of black grosgrain ribbon and tucked inside a muslin bag for safe keeping & perfect gift giving
What does "Design Type" mean? The number of silhouettes on the ornament. Double=2 silhouettes / Triple=3 silhouettes / Quad=4 silhouettes
We can fit up to 4 silhouettes on an ornament. Please keep in mind if you choose to have more than two the silhouettes will be small.
IMPORTANT: Wreath selections, names, year, etc will be requested in the custom order details form that you will fill out AFTER ordering.
When choosing a wood type:
Birch has the most contrast with minimal wood grain.
Cherry is rich and beautiful. Moderate wood grain and sometimes a moderate contrast, sometimes a slight contrast.
Maple is a beautiful color with lots of variation and wood grain. Sometimes a moderate contrast, sometimes a slight contrast.
**No proof will be sent if using already drawn silhouettes unless requested.**
Due to natural variations in wood grain every ornament will naturally be slightly different from what is shown.

I had an ornament made from silhouettes done last year. I love it! It is a lovely addition to our tree this year (and many years to follow)!
Last year I purchased a single silhouette ornament, but after my second daughter was born this year I knew I needed one of both my girls. I ordered 3 - one to keep and 2 for grandparent gifts. They turned out perfect! I can't wait to hang it on my tree this year and to look back and see how much my oldest has grown in a year.
Purchased using already drawn artwork but absolutely love these. They're so special and will be wonderful gifts for our "nanas" the art work is stunning and the craftsmanship is so nice on the ornaments.
My husband and I gave these to our moms as an early (very early!) Christmas gift! I am amazed at how beautiful they came out and how identical they are to the silhouettes I purchased a year ago! Gift cards to A Family Print Shop will for sure be my new go to baby shower gift!! Love! Love! Love!
I bought the ornament for my sons' Grandmothers. They LOVE them!
