Here is a great shot of Dale and Dorothy with their caricature drawn by artist Zalo that was given to them by their daughter as a signature board.
As you can see she had it printed on a large sheet of heavy paper that people at the retirement even could sign.
Here are some examples by other artists:
These sign-in boards and gifts that can be signed are very popular. We have just made some special arrangements with our US framer to be able to supply a print and frame package that allows the glass to be easily removed thus allowing guests and colleagues to be able to sign on the matting. After the event the glass is simply placed back into the frame for a lasting gift.
If you would like to create a signature board gift, feel free to browse our artists and then contact me with any questions.

A popular use of caricatures is to draft the bride and groom and to use the caricature in an element of the wedding. Some use them as date savers, others as the cover for the wedding invitation.
This couple will be using theirs as a wedding wedding sign-in board. What a great way to gather best wishes from your guests and to include it as part of the overall art work.
It is quite simple – all you have to do is make sure you have a nice wide mat inside the frame where people can write. Then after the wedding it is simply a case of replacing the glass for a lasting memento of the happy occasion!!
And yest we love feedback from our clients!
You have been wonderful and I LOVE this picture now. I will definitely be using it for the wedding. I will tell everyone I know how accommodating and professional you and your company have been. I will send anyone who is looking for a caricature your way.
Best of luck and continued success!

Here is a commissioned caricature drawn recently completed by Zalo. The brief was to have the two girls looking like they have been hard at work writing a ‘For Dummies’ book on their laptop. The papers and coffee mugs indicate the drafts and time spent and a cameo appearance by the Dummies Man!
After once draft stage, artist Zalo produced this final caricature of writers. As you can see, there is attention to specific details in this gift caricature, like the eyebrow piercings and the green ball the girl on the left is sitting on. Oh and TPYO is just the way the client wanted it
The customers response… “This is outstanding!”

This was a job drawn by artist Zalo for a fellow who works in a realtor office. He was after Kris Kringle gifts and decided on having caricatures of each of the staff drawn.
Here is his;
I have also put a few of the others into a bit of a montage.
Did he like the work? Even after a WOW email back before Christmas, he kindly took the time to send this email:
Happy New Year! I hope you enjoyed your holiday with the family and the Festive Season. Just wanted to let you know our Kris Kringle presents were absolutely fantastic! Everyone loved them.
I had to wrap 17 mugs and 17 A4 prints plus another full set for our company scrap book but it was worth it.
n the morning I made eggnog for everyone, played Kris Kringle (complete with Santa hat) for all the “usual” presents, then sat down and pressed play on my PowerPoint Presentation… Oh my God – people could not stop laughing. I had people randomly chose a number between 1-17 to pick the order, and funnily enough I got 17th. Once I’d made it through everyone, I stopped and then everyone realised I hadn’t shown mine – if there was a laugh-o-meter mine would have broken it!
Later, at the Christmas Party, both bosses (including their wives) said it was the best Christmas present ever – with one boss telling me I was irreplaceable.
So thank you again, to you and Zalo for you fantastic efforts.
Will be in touch again soon for the birthday present we spoke about late last year.
