The Sketched Silhouette Portrait
Hand-Illustrated Silhouette Portraits – Timeless – An heirloom to be treasured for years to come.
An original creation of AFPS. We take the classic silhouette and transform it into a modern & more detailed Portrait. Using your photo as our guide, we hand draw each one with layers and layers of shading and detailing.
The color palette we use is a mixture of blacks, grays, and whites. The illustration will be printed on an 8x10 piece of crisp white coverstock. Should you want to upgrade it to an 11x14, we give you that option after ordering.
All custom Silhouettes will come with one proof and round of simple revisions prior to printing.
Each silhouette will be printed individually based on the size you choose. If you would like multiple children on the same print, still select the number of illustrations and just let us know you would like them as a "family print."
Tips for a great profile photo:
• A resting face or one that shows big expression look great in this art.
• We should ONLY see one eye/eyebrow - meaning the face needs to be fully turned sideways.
• Is the photo showing the ENTIRE face, head/hair, neck area?
• Are you happy with how the hair looks?
• Is the photo taken during the day with good lighting?

This silhouette sketch is absolutely incredible! It captures my daughter’s likeness exactly. I will cherish it for the rest of my life.
I cannot say enough good things about A Family Printshop! Their work is amazing and the customer service is excellent. They have gone above and beyond to make our experience with them perfect. We will definitely be ordering again in the future.
I have been a long time follower (stalker) of A Family Print Shop and after years of saying “One Day...” I finally felt it was the right time to order portraits. They are GORGEOUS!!! Everyone that has seen them keeps asking where I had them done and commenting on how timeless and artsy they are. They are a perfect addition to the walls of our home and I couldn’t be happier.
This is a perfect way to capture this moment in time for my toddler. Every detail is perfect and I could not be more happy!
We LOVE our sketched silhouette of our daughter! We get so many compliments and questions about it when people see it. It’s so detailed and the likeness is incredible. We will forever cherish it! Thank you!
