Art is on quality 11”x14” paper. For more than 6 people's heads, we'll consider 16”x20” size art. Tools may include permanent marker, color pencil, chalk and watercolor.
How should I send photos?
The first choice is to upload through our fulfillment form. Second choice is e-mailing to email@example.com. If you need to mail photos, request our address. You will get them back.
Photo formats: For emailing photos to us, what specifications are best?
Most formats are OK. A .jpeg especially. Our system allows for up to 20 megabites each. We need to see clearly enough to make you a drawing. Ideal resolution is 150px, but between 72px and 300px are possible. Pictures copied from phone or web that are 1” small are probably unusable. Links to photos are possible too.
Payment: What method?
You can pay with all major credit cards through the Square portal. System is very safe and efficient.
Speed: How quickly will I get my art?
In about 1-2 weeks. Usually much sooner. Option; order digital copy and print it.
How can I be sure I'll like the art?
You will get a preliminary sketch to approve before your final artwork and a scan of the final.
Please add $9 for shipping in USA, OR we can send a digital file world-wide via e-mail at no extra charge.
Sorry, we don't ship overseas.
If you have more than one individual order, we will ship it all to a single location for the single $9 fee.
Frames: Do you offer frames or mats?
No. Sorry. But the 11x14 size is a standard, so you can find them easily.
Multiples: If there’s more than 1 person, is there a discount?
No. Our prices are too low to discount. Note that art of 6 or more people can be on 16×20 with no extra charge for this larger size.
We must charge tax if you are in the State of Connecticut. Our system should not charge tax beyond that.
Photo reference: What photo reference is best?
Pictures with largest, clearest faces are best. (not smaller than a quarter.) Several choices may help. If you want a double, both parties don't need to be in same photo reference.
Business rights: Can I use my caricature in advertising?
No, not at base price, but it is possible with a reasonable usage fee. Describe the planned usage for a quote. You’ll get an opportunity for extra input receive and receive higher resolution digital files.

Specific extras: What if I want a very specific extra, i.e. pet, car or building?
Count that as an extra person price-wise, and send a reference photo. However, quick generalized depictions are no extra charge.
Pet portraits: Are pet portraits possible?
Yes. Note that the style is between a cartoon portrait and a detailed one. We price them as people. Sample on request.

No. Shoulders are added unless you want just the head. Send instructions with your order.
