Custom cardboard cutouts are a fun way to add some zazzle to your next party or get-together.
Cardboard cutouts, also known as cardboard standups or photo cutouts are figures of people, animals or anything else that captures your imagaination.
Custom cardboard cutouts are the new trend in themed parties simply because of the authentic atmosphere that they bring. Just think of having a lifesize Pirate Ship in your pirate themed party or a lifesize photo cutout of a castle for your daughter’s princess themed party. How unique and beautiful that would be!
Cardboard standups are not only useful for props and backdrops for parties. You can also make a lifesize picture of yourself or the celebrant as a custom cardboard cutout. Many party lovers will also choose cardboard cutouts of their favorite celebrity or athlete to be included in their party decorations. There are many different materials you can use when making your cutouts, ie plastic sheets, metals and even wax. However, most people prefer using cardboard as it is easier to handle and much cheaper than the other materials.
How Can I Use My Custom Cardboard Cutouts?
There are many ways you can use your lifesize cardboard cutout. Here are some ideas:
Entrance decoration. If you are the party celebrant, then why not put your own lifesize cutout right in the venue’s entrance? You can even add a speech bubble saying something like “Welcome to My Party!”
Bring your favorite celebrity. You can buy or make lifesize cutouts of your favorite celebrities and include them in your party. Whether you decide to choose Justin Bieber, Alan Garner or Marilyn Monroe, you and your guests can enjoy taking your picture with them, as if they were really there! Not everyone can have President Barack Obama come to their party, but you can if you choose a lifesize cardboard cutout.
Give your party a much more authentic feel of its theme with lifesize cutouts. You can make cutouts of Disney-inspired places or some of the traditional Disney characters, like Donald Duck, Goofey, Mickey Mouse, Pooh Bear or Woody & Buzz Lightyear from Toy Story. Choose one or more of your favourite super heroes, like Captain America, Superman, Spiderman, Iron Man, the Hulk, the X Men, Batman or The Joker.
One of the Disney Princesses like Cinderella, Snow White, Princess Aurora, Ariel, Belle or Jasmine, is sure to be a hit with the girls. Those who are into sci-fi, can choose Chewbacca, Yoda or Darth Vader and include a Stormtrooper or two. Consider inviting Dr Who and Amy Pond to your party who bring along The Tardis.
