All orders are received, reviewed, created, mounted, prepared for shipping, and shipped by the artist herself. Please ensure that your order is detailed (when necessary) and accurate so you experience the best service even during busy times.
To make an order, click on the product-photos at the top of the page - you will be able to order Silhouettes, extra copies of the Silhouettes, and Frame or Mat. All elements are completely described. It's very easy to add items to your cart, pay securely, and send your photo - often all from your smartphone or tablet device.
New: You can give a Gift Certificate to a family member, friend, co-worker, or other lucky person. You can choose all elements of your gift - silhouette portraits, frame, and/or mat. You make the payment and choose the person, she/he receives the gift.
Details: "Gift Certificates" mean that you will supply the name, address, and email address of your lucky "giftee" - If it is your preference, Silhouettes By Hand will send an email requesting profile photos, and she/he will receive the order that you paid for, but without any fee or indication of price. You will give all this Giftee information at the end of the checkout process.
During the ordering process, you will be asked to email a profile (side-facing) photo, as seen here. Please use this image of a side-facing portrait to show you what your photo should look like. Please send several photos just in case one photo doesn't show all the details needed. It is important to know that your artist does not know what your person looks like; your artist is only going on this photo. The better your photos, the better your silhouettes:
The Turnaround (the time between receiving an order and shipping it out to you) varies depending on the season and the artist's schedule to receive, cut, and send out your order. The average turnaround is 3-7 days.
The shipping is currently United States Post Office (USPS), Priority Mail, insured. Every effort is taken to pack your package well for the fewest accidents by USPS service.
However, USPS doesn't work for every customer. If you want a different shipper (UPS or FedEx), please email Silhouettes By Hand for a custom order - we will send via the shipper of your choice, at the going rates for that shipping service.
The order form allows shipping to a Shipping address other than the Customer (orderer's) address. For best service, please mention in your "Sending photos"-email that you want your order shipped to a different address so your order will speed to the chosen location.
If you are planning to send your second (or third) copies to another address outside of the Shipping address, this will incur another fee. The fee depends on what you are sending; you will receive an email with any new shipping fees.
This page takes Credit Card, Paypal, and Apple Pay. If you have any difficulty ordering on this page, OR would like to order BY CHECK, please email Silhouettes By Hand for a custom order experience. Please ask directly for your favorite payment form.
NOTE: Click on the pictures of the products to learn about them before ordering.
International shipping information was difficult to create on this order page. If you are based outside of the United States and are interested in making a silhouette order, please email Silhouettes By Hand with your order request so that custom pricing can be arranged due to international shipping needs.
Sadly, shipping to countries outside of the USA will require customs forms and higher shipping fees.
All care and effort possible has gone into creating your order and shipping. All sales are considered final unless severe breakage has been experienced using a shipping service. If a breakage or severe damage has been found on your order due to a shipping service, your artist has the right to inspect the damage and decide any exchanges. She will talk with you about the possibilities.
