Let us turn your favorite photograph
into a silhouette painted on wood.
All of our portraits are painted on Baltic Birch wood, and come with a matte sealant applied, and hardware attached to the back for hanging.
Keep the memory of your lovebug alive for years to come!
The order process of a pet portrait silhouette is quite simple. We work with you the every step of the way so you will never be left in the dark about what you will be receiving. We’ve broken it down into three simple steps so you can see the process we will go through with you. Still have questions? Please ask! We are here to help.
Simply choose several of your favorite photos of your pet and send them over to us through email at firstname.lastname@example.org. We ask for a couple because some photos just work better than others, and we want to give you options. The photos can be taken from a digital camera (iphone, android, DSLR camera, etc.), or even scanned photographs from years ago, but they must be in-focus and high resolution. We are unable to create a silhouette if the image isn’t clear. The better the clarity of the photo, the more detail the silhouette will have.
Once we receive your images, we will work to create the silhouette. The smallest size we can make the portrait is 12” x 12” due to detail, but we can go any size larger. Prices for our most popular sizes are on our Order page, but if you’d like a size that isn’t listed, just send us an email and we can give you a quote. Let us know the size, what colors you would like for the silhouette and background, and if you’d like a name or phrase added to it. This is all included in the price. We will provide you with a proof of the design to make sure you are completely happy with it. If you’re not, let us know, and we will make the changes. Our main goal is to have you absolutely loving the finished piece, so we will gladly go back to work on the design.
Once you have approved a design, you will need to purchase the size you would like from our Order page. If it is a custom size that isn’t listed on there, we will make up a custom listing for you to purchase. Once this is done, we will begin to work on your custom pet portrait. This usually takes 2 weeks to complete, unless we let you know otherwise. The silhouette will be painted on Baltic Birch wood, and a matte sealant will be applied at the end to protect it from minor scuffs and scratches. A sawtooth hanger will be applied to the back, giving you the option to hang it if you like. For larger portraits, D-hooks will be applied instead of sawtooth hangers, due to the weight. A photo of the portrait on wood will be emailed to you upon completion so you can see the finished piece. And then we ship it out!
We have five standard color choices for the background: black, white, light grey, dark grey, and brown. However, we can make your custom portrait any color. Simply let us know what color you would like and we will work with you to find the perfect paint color.
Please note, there will be an extra $2.00 charge for custom background colors.
