About Our Custom Pet Cutouts & Standees
Get a life-sized standee of your dog, cat, or other pet by having their photo printed on these animal cutouts. These pet-sized cut outs are perfect for events that your pet can’t attend, as decorations for parties, or as a memento when you are away from them. Use them for indoor and outdoor display due to their corrugated cardboard or durable, outdoor-tested corrugated plastic material. Both materials are easy to print on so that we can print the photo you submit in striking, full color. For the best results, we recommend sending us a high-resolution photo so that your cat or dog cardboard cutout will not have any pixilation. Choose between getting a mini table-sized cutout, a cutout the same size as your pet, or a larger-than-life version. The width of the dog or cat cut out will depend on the photo you send us. Our order includes a standee easel for setting up the display. Make your pet the center of an event with your family and friends by having their picture printed on these animal cutouts.

Frequently Asked Questions
How long will it take for me to get my pet cutout?
These pet cardboard cutouts require production time for printing, which will take 3 business days, not including shipping. If you need your cutout by a certain time, we have rush production and shipping times available for a fee. Go to our “Delivery Estimator” to see our shipping rates.
Are there custom sizes?
You can specify the exact height you need ranging from 18-inches to 7-feet tall. The width (36” max) of the cat or dog standee will depend on the photo you send us and will be cut to size. This allows you to get either a small-sized cutout for table and desk display or a life-sized cutout to stand on the floor.
Where are these animal cutouts used?
Cat or dog cardboard cutouts are used in business and private settings. Companies will get pets printed on cardboard cutouts to advertise animal products they’re selling at a conference or in their store. People also commonly use them as decorations for their home or at a party. They are often printed with photos of pets that can’t attend events or are having their birthday. The sky’s the limit with where these cutouts can be displayed.
What is the difference between the two materials?
We offer corrugated plastic material and corrugated cardboard. The cardboard option is best for indoor use, such as at a house party. The cardboard is white so that the picture comes out clearer than it would on brown cardboard. Corrugated plastic is designed more for long-term indoor use or outdoor use. This is because corrugated plastic is weather- and UV-resistant so that the wind, rain, and heat will not affect the material or the print. Choosing the material depends on where you plan on setting up your pet cutout and for how long. We recommend corrugated plastic for most applications.
What kind of printing is used for dog standees?
Your photos are recreated on the cutout using a digital UV-printing technique. This is the same kind of printing often used for yard signs and letters. The print will not fade, even when exposed to sunlight, and it will not scratch or peel off after being setup for a long time. We also use full CMYK color printing. This allows your photo to be as colorful and detailed as possible without it affecting the overall price of your animal cut outs.
How do I make them stand up?
All our animal cutouts come with easels that secure to the unprinted back of the material. Only one person is needed to set them up and no tools are required.
How will my cutouts be shipped?
We ship small cutouts flat and score & fold larger cutouts to save our customers on shipping costs. Score and fold lines are discreet when your cutout is assembled. All orders come with protective framing around the photo that you gently pull off after unpackaging.
Is it okay if I use them outdoors? What if they get wet?
If you are planning on using your animal cardboard cutouts outdoors, we recommend getting the corrugated plastic material. This kind of material was designed for indoor and outdoor display and will not get ruined if it gets wet. The corrugated cardboard option and the print can get damaged if exposed to water. Outdoor conditions such as wind may also prohibit the easel attachment from working properly.
