This listing is for a group portrait.
These portraits can be made to feature any number of people you wish (listing photos show portraits featuring three and four people). We're happy to create this type of portraint of any group of people you'd like- family, friends, pets, colleagues, or even the cast members of your favorite television series!

We cut silhouettes in the traditional style- there is no drawing, tracing, or digital alteration involved in our work. Using only paper and scissors, we freehand cut an accurate likeness within minutes, just as artisans did in the eighteenth century.
Silhouettes make charming, unique gifts and we use the finest archival quality papers and adhesive available to ensure that they will last a lifetime.
*Framed product image is for marketing purposes. Your silhouette will arrive unframed.
Your group portrait will be sent to you signed, dated and mounted on 8x10 or 11x14 heavy-weight white card stock.
