“WOW, WHAT A BEAUTIFUL JOB!!! I can’t begin to tell you how happy I am with the finished product. I have had other cutouts done – never came close to your workmanship.”
Maureen M. Davie FL

Read on to see why these Features make our Photo Cutouts Better:

Lamination: All Fotoforms Photo Cutouts are protected by a thick, high gloss, premium clarity, protective laminate which protects the surface of your image from moisture, scratching, and UV fading.

Clear Acrylic Backing: Because we cut by laser, Fotoforms Photo Cutouts can be mounted to less distracting, clear acrylic. Competitors use colored acrylic to conceal saw scratches.

No extra charges: unlike some competitors, we won’t charge you more for complicated interior cuts or extra people in the Cutout

Artist programmed laser-cut path: Degreed commercial artists plot the program for your Photo Cutout. This is important to make your Cutout look right. We ordered the Cutout at right from a competitor. Notice they cut around the foot of the player, making the foot look like it’s floating, when in fact it should be touching the ground. Our artists visualize the finished product and follow artistic “rules” like the establishment of a “horizon line” that would prevent this mistake.

Laser-Cut Edges are clean and smooth. Saw cutting rips through the photo and can result in frayed and lifted edges over time.

Beveled and Polished Base that Fits: We route and polish the top edge of our bases for a nice, finished look. Since we make our own bases, we stock over 25 sizes so your photo will look “right” on it’s base. Many competitors only have a few sizes, so they either put your Photo Cutout on too large a base, or widen the bottom of your Photo Cutout to fit the width of the base they have. Both examples are shown at bottom right.

Permanent mounting of the Photo Cutout to base: We chemically weld your Cutout to the base for a very tight bond and a nice clean seam. Sure, a removable base saves a dollar or two in the initial shipping, but you have to put up with the segmented seam forever. However, sometimes a removable base does make sense, like if you are ordering many displays for your business and need to ship to multiple locations. Just let us know and we can quote that option.

Fotoforms brings you the highest quality for your photo. After all, it’s your child, your pet, your parents’ wedding photo, your companies’ product. If it’s important enough to display as a Photo Cutout, why not choose the best. After all, our prices are competitive while our quality and artistry is so much better. Thank you for considering Fotoforms!

*Within reason of course. For Example, we won’t cut out all the squares in your soccer net, and we may choose to leave in some interior areas in your Photo Cutout in order to preserve structural integrity, or just because it will look better that way. If you only send lots of photos with large groups of people we may discuss adding an extra charge to keep us from loosing money, but for almost all photos you might send we keep the pricing simple and base it only on the size of the finished product.

**The cutouts shown are actual cutouts purchased from other companies, and do not represent all competitors. Some competitors offer some of the features we offer, but no competitor we know of goes to the extent we do to bring you the very best Photo Cutouts. For example, most competitors invested $400.00 in a nice saw, while Fotoforms invested $92,000.00 in a state of the art industrial laser because we know it makes your Photo Cutouts better.
