We have taken a classic silhouette and turned it into a beautiful heirloom plaque! Each silhouette is hand illustrated to showcase every detail of your child’s features from their sweet nose and eyelashes to hair whispies and curls. It will then be engraved into a piece of wood to be cherished for years to come. Each plaque is carefully designed, created, sanded & polished with a natural beeswax/coconut finish and then tucked into a muslin pouch. Perfect for gift giving – great for storing when not being displayed.
Because of how detailed each silhouette is, we feel your portraits deserve a place on a plaque AND in print form. Therefore, we will include a complimentary 5×7 print version of each silhouette! If you would like a name or wreath on the print, you must include that info at the time your order is placed or when you send your photos. If not, the print will be classic black with no name and no wreath.
Each plaque is approximately 5×7 inches and 1/4 inch thick. We have 5 different wood types (see photo sample) to choose from – these ornaments are not stained, the colors are natural from the wood. Different wood types have different wood grain so please know that wood grains and coloring will vary piece by piece.
All custom Silhouettes will come with one proof and round of simple revisions prior to printing. This proof will be sent to your account and you will receive an email notification letting you know you have a note to view. Approval is needed prior to engraving your ornament.
Please see the FAQs page for specific turnaround times.
Tips for a great profile photo:
• Resting (more serious face) tends to look best in this type of art
• Is the photo showing the ENTIRE face, hair, neck area?
• Are you happy with how the hair looks?
• Is the photo taken during the day with good lighting?
Please see the Submitting Photos page for more tips on taking a great photo in order to give you a realistic & beautiful final portrait — plus instructions on how to submit your photos. Once you place an order you will receive an email confirmation. There will also be instructions in there.
