Caricatures are a truly original gift

Filed under: caricature gifts — Tags: , , , — Charlie Anson @ 4:27 pm

If you are like most people, you will sometimes struggle to think of good gift ideas for your friends and family members. After all, occasions like birthdays and anniversaries come around year in year out and so finding new and original offerings to hand over can be tough. And there is nothing more frustrating than spending your hard-earned cash on presents that appear thoughtless and you know will not be appreciated.

Well, that is where we come in here at Charlie’s Cartoons. By getting in touch with us using our simple ordering system, you can purchase a truly novel and fantastic gift for your loved one that is almost certainly unlike anything they have been given before.

We specialise in the creation of caricature cartoons and all we need to make these personalised images is a couple of photos of the individual in question and some information about them. The facts you supply determine the nature of the composition and you get to have full say in the final product, meaning you are bound to be more than satisfied.

Caricature pictures can be both amusing and sentimental and they can encapsulate the essence of the subject, or can represent a particular event or series of events in their lives.

Another advantage of getting custom caricatures as a present is the fact it is so easy. Once you have seen a scanned copy of the creation, we will mount and frame it according to your specific requirements and the process is complete. So, with personalised caricatures, present buying can take a whole new direction.

Celebrate your family holiday with personalised caricatures

The family holiday. It is a long standing tradition that many people still manage to uphold, despite the chaotic and busy nature of modern life. After all, such occasions represent one of the few chances for people to get together and spend some quality time with one another.

Often, plenty of photographs are taken of these events. Indeed, whole albums might be filled with shots of dad looking sunburned, children splashing around in the pool and mum desperately trying to get some rest and relaxation.

However, often these all-important snaps are put away in drawers only to be taken out every once in a while. Indeed, these days the images are sometimes not printed out at all but rather uploaded to albums on computers instead.

If you are keen to break the trend and create a proper memory from your trip, you might want to consider caricature cartoons. These fantastic creations are able to encapsulate many elements of your break all in one picture. The details of the composition are up to you and they depend on the photos and information you supply us with.

By having family caricatures of you all on holiday, you are ensuring the most important memories from your adventure are not forgotten. Indeed, when mounted and framed, these personalised caricatures make great features in living rooms and other places in your home.

We all know that children grow up far too fast and having caricature pictures of them on holiday is one way of immortalising particular stages of their development, and of keeping a record of the activities you did together.

Personalised caricatures make statements in homes

Filed under: caricatures — Tags: , , , — Charlie Anson @ 4:11 pm

Like many people, you might feel quite house proud. After all, your property is in many ways a reflection of you and your family and so you want it to come across as well as possible. Not only this, but you probably spend a lot of time there, so it is important that you enjoy the space and feel comfortable in it.

One aspect of this is the decor you select and the artwork you put on the walls. However, sometimes, it can be difficult to get inspiration when it comes to such things.

Well, one option you might not have considered that not only looks great but is also highly original and a real feature is that of personalised caricatures. These novel images can really enhance the rooms they are placed in and are bound to attract the attention and admiration of any guests you have over.

Here at Charlie’s Cartoons, we specialise in making caricature pictures from the photos and information supplied to us by our customers. So, if you would like an image of your spouse, children or anyone else, you have come to the right place.

You can represent a funny anecdote using custom caricatures or highlight people’s personality traits, interests and experiences – the choice is yours. Indeed, you have considerable control over the caricature cartoons we create for you.

We will get back to you with any ideas we have and you can change or edit these as you please. Then, the creation is drafted in pencil, followed by Indian ink and then shading. You also get to choose how it is mounted and framed. This means you can get the perfect visual statement for your home.

A wedding offering with a twist

Attending the wedding of friends or family members can be a fantastic experience. These romantic occasions often have a magical feel about them and you get to share in one of the happy couple’s most memorable days.

However, you might sometimes find yourself in a panic ahead of such events because you are unsure what to get as a gift for the pair. This can be particularly tricky if there is no list for you to choose from. In such circumstances, you might benefit from considering personalised caricatures.

These are truly original and thoughtful offerings that will almost certainly be unlike anything else the newlyweds receive. The great thing about these wedding caricatures is that unlike the official photo album that will just focus on the big day itself, such custom caricatures can incorporate details from events stretching back in time.

You might choose to include references to how and where the pair first met and certain important parts of their journey from this point to their decision to get hitched.

All you need to do is supply a couple of photos and the information you want us to focus on – then simply let our imaginations get to work creating your caricature from photos.

You might well find that the present you give to the bride and groom ends up taking pride of place in their home. Surely that’s better than handing them a toaster! To find out more about our caricature cartoons simply browse our website or get in touch. You might be surprised by how straightforward the process is.

Mark that special occasion with cartoon caricatures

We live in the age of the digital camera. Snaps taken in this way can be great, but there is something slightly impersonal about many of them. Not only this, but often these images are kept on computers rather than being printed out and physically stored.

When it comes to special occasions, this can be a great shame. So, if you are in the process of organising an event such as an important birthday, an anniversary or anything else you think deserves extra attention, you might want to think about commissioning cartoon caricatures. Indeed, you can take advantage of such services even if the occasion has already been and gone.

All you need to have your ideal custom caricatures made is a couple of pictures from the big day. By sending these into us here at Charlie’s Cartoons, along with some information about the people involved and the day itself, you can rest assured you will get a composition that more than does the event justice.

Personalised caricatures are ideal as a way of marking these episodes in life because of their ability to get so much detail into a relatively small space.  They can encapsulate something of the personalities of the subjects, as well as the occurrences of the day. This is something other types of image simply cannot achieve.

To find out more about caricature pictures, have a look around our website or get in touch. You might be surprised by what can be achieved using a little talent, imagination and of course ink.
