How does this work?
We are an art shop that specializes in hand drawn silhouettes.
Our main product offering is printed drawings. Select from our shop menu which style you’d like! The options are:
– Classic Silhouettes – Watercolor Silhouettes – Sketched Silhouettes – Family Silhouettes –
Once we make your drawing we can use it in other products that can be purchased a la carte. You can purchase them at the same time as the illustrations (take note of which listing you are purchasing) or you can come back later to purchase. The additional products are:
– Wood Plaques – Brass Lockets – Wood Engraved Ornaments – Additional Copies of Silhouette Prints –
We archive your drawings after we make them so you can always come back and purchase additional products.
How do I submit Photos?
We have recently made changes to this to make it easier for you. 🙂
Within 72 hours of placing your order please send an email with the photo(s) attached to — AFPSproofs@gmail.com
Please include “Order #_____ ” in the subject line. Label each photo using the child’s name if you opted to have us include their name on the portrait.
We will reply back letting you know we have your photos and then once the proofs are ready, we will send them back to you through the same email conversation.
What Kind of Photos Should I Submit?
We meticulously hand-draw our portraits using the picture of the person’s profile. This is why sending a quality photo is so important in order for us to make them realistic and true to the person. We capture as much from the photos as possible while using our own artistic style to create a beautiful silhouette portrait.
Please note: It’s best to send ONE great photo for each child. If you have a photo where you love the face profile, but like the hair better in another one, we can use both, but please limit the photos to no more than two per person. It helps us work more efficiently AND gives you the best, most realistic final portrait!
