Cutouts of people in life size can be a lot of fun! We see people cutouts being used in trade shows, for events and sales meetings, and we’ve even made them of the candidates in the New Hampshire Primary.
What we usually need to make a full size cutout is a good digital photo of the person. It helps if they are facing the camera, and we need to think about the structural stability of things like this. You’ll see in the photo that we left some white around their legs to give them strength.
I have an old photo of me sitting next to a cutout of Johnny Carson, taken some years ago at a trade show. You can do the same kind of thing, and it’s great fun!
