Life Size Cutouts Crafted to Last
Our custom cutouts are offered with two material options: Cardboard or corrugated plastic. Both options are high-quality, and each can be beneficial for different applications. Read below for information about each material.
Custom Cardboard Cutouts
Our cardboard standees are made from 1/8” White B-Flute corrugated cardboard and are the perfect solution for indoor display. This option is less expensive but has excellent color reproduction because of the white cardboard background. Although it is not as tough or resilient as corrugated plastic, the cardboard used for our life size photo cutouts is strong and suitable for long term indoor display. It can also be exhibit outdoors, but only in good weather conditions to avoid any water damage.
Corrugated Plastic Cutouts
Our corrugated plastic life size posters can be displayed indoors and outdoors. They are waterproof and weather-resistant, making them ideal for outdoor display. This material is stronger, and the best option for long-term use, offering years of repeated display. Custom standees are digitally printed with UV-resistant inks for vibrant colors that won’t fade or peel. Corrugated plastic cutouts can also be wiped down with soapy water, so they are able to be cleaned after every use.
