Frequently Asked Questions

How are the caricatures drawn?

Most of our caricatures are hand drawn by experienced artists with an experience of over 45 years, combined. The caricatures are hand drawn using conventional drawing techniques. The hand drawn caricatures are not computer generated.

The digital caricatures are drawn using digital ink software on tablet computers, so they are drawn into the computer using a digital pen. You can see a sample of each below.

What if I don’t like the way my caricature order turnes out?

How does it work, what do I need to send you?

You can upload your pictures online, email them as attachments or even mail them to us (no….fax won’t work). Along with the pictures, we need to know how you would like to be drawn. You can specify any details you want us to include in the caricature. All we need is a picture that shows your face. You can see samples of uploaded pictures along with the final result here.

How long does it take you to complete my caricature order?

It takes between 7 to 10 days to complete a caricature order. Large group caricaturescan take 14 days or longer to draw. Before the winter holidays it can take up to 14 days to complete personal caricatures, as they are such a popular Christmas gift.

I ordered a caricature before, and I need one in a new setting?

We call that a “Variation Caricature”. If we can use the same picture you uploaded for a previous order and you now want a new caricature in a different setting we have a special price for you. You can see the variations order page here.

How many people can you draw in a group caricature?

We can draw as many people as you want. The largest group caricature we have done was a Christmas card with 75 people. If you need a quote for a large group, read next question. Click Here to see our Largest Caricature
