Family caricatures – something special

Having a great photograph of all the extended family is something that is often hard, if not impossible to achieve. From a family history perspective, getting an image with everyone together  is important.

But the truth is that family members live far away, or cannot all get together for the photo. If they can Aunty Mavis has fallen asleep, the kids are distracted and looking in the wrong direction and baby Joe is crying and Mom Lucy is looking frazzled!!

One option is to invest in something special and have a family caricature created. This has many benefits and can achieve things not possible in a photo:

  • You can include everyone, even if they are far away – simply by having a photo of them is enough to have them included and that photo can be taken at your leisure so it shows people how you want them to be shown!
  • Through the addition of props, you can show what their interest is, or something that is associated with them like their occupation.
  • You can get good poses for people as required.
  • By supplying photos of people with a desired expression, you can create unique interactions between family members, like brothers sharing a joke, or Granny pointing and smiling at something one of the kids is doing.
  • Things can be as formal or informal as you wish.

We have some examples of family caricatures of our group caricatures page

Caricature greeting cards

I don’t know if you are like me and get a pile of mundane cards in the weeks before Christmas.

Apart from the percentage that are identical on the outside (and some even appear to be almost identical on the inside!) most are uninspiring – send….well I guess because that’s what we do at this time of year.

But Greeting cards are a way to renew relationships, with personal acquaintances, relatives and on the commercial angle, business.

What better way to create an impression, to cut through the sea of stack standard cards than to have your own custom cards.

Sound hard? Well its not. Get a caricature created (we size it up and everything and even put on the text you want) and then have it printed using our print partner (they even supply the envelopes).

Easy – all you have to do is write your personal note inside each one and you have created a memorable moment for each and every person who receives one.
