To make your order, select your products to add to your Online Cart. All orders are securely purchased with your Credit Card, PayPal, or Apple Pay - so secure that I do not receive your credit info myself. I only receive an email with your entire order information. Follow all instructions below.
Wednesday, December 13 was the deadline to make your order: this gave your artist time to hand-cut order portraits, package, and mail. While this may feel like an early time to make your Christmas shopping, remember that your silhouettes are handmade, hand-framed, and hand-mailed - all by the artist herself, in the USA. Outside of this Dec.13 deadline, I could not guarantee of a by-Christmas delivery.
If you still want to make Holiday Orders in time for Christmas arrival, orders are still being accepted but they are not guaranteed for holiday delivery time. Deep apologies. While charming silhouette portraits make great gifts, they are made by hand, packed by hand, and mailed by hand. Transit times are not guaranteed, unless you are live near the artist (see below).
Orders are accepted year-round for all occasions: Birthdays, Mother's Day, Valentine's Day, Anniversaries, Celebrations, and of course: bookings for live events.
Baltimore Silhouette fans: I am located in northern Baltimore City. If you are interested in ordering UP TO December 19, I invite you to order online on this website, and then pick them up in person from me, at my home office. Your postal fees will be refunded. Just write a note in the order that you want to arrange in-person pickup, and we'll make arrangements via email.
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.
Silhouettes By Hand offers a range of products based around its signature offering: handmade silhouette portraits. Click on the above images to learn more about the products and to order easily through the secure e-commerce cart system.
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.
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. 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 different address other than the 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.
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.
