Step 2

Fill in your personal information form and upload your photo

Please be sure to upload a clear photo. Because our cartoonists focus on facial expression, it is very important that you provide a photo with clear details in the face area. Shadows and bright spots (like flash spots) may reduce the quality of the cartoon. The facial expression and pose in the photo will be reflected in the cartoon therefore you’ll want to upload a photo that best expresses what you expect. If your pictures are printed on paper, you have to transfer them to your computer. The best way to do this is with a scanner. If you shot your picture with a digital camera upload it onto your computer first before sending it to us.

Step 3

Select a product(s) to get your cartoon printed onto or print your cartoon on your own

Maybe the most entertaining part of all. You can print your cartoon on your own or have it professionally printed in any size and on any material you want (i.e. poster, t-shirt, mug).

Option 1. Print your cartoon on your own

The final product is delivered in PDF and jpeg formats. In PDF format you don’t lose any picture quality during enlargement. Because the cartoons are vectoral you can print them onto any material and in any size you want. With the Jpeg format you can use your cartoon in an internet environment on programs such as MSN, Yahoo Messenger, Friendster, and MySpace.
