Life Size Custom Cutouts
What is a Custom Cutout? Custom Cutouts are made from your photo and printed directly to the material you choose , you have the option to choose from cardboard, foamcore or coroplast. Movie Cutouts then contour cuts the shape of your image to create a life like cutout. Cutouts are resistant to minor scratches and abrasions. Even the sun is no match – our cutouts can endure the harsh effects of direct sunlight. This means your promotional material can withstand many different high traffic areas, such as store displays, movie theaters, offices and much more.
The standard material cardboard is white washed on the front to ensure a print true to color. This material is also corrugated along the height for structural stability. Cardboard is our cheapest option providing a nice print and durability.
Foamcore lacks the corrugation of the cardboard instead its center is filled with foam. This removes the ripple effect of the corrugation in the cardboard. Foamcore offers the nicest looking print but is very easily damaged. Foamcore is great for exibits behind glass or somewhere out of reach.
Coroplast is our strongest material standing for corrugated plastic. Coroplast is waterproof and generally used out doors, or when a cutout is being posed with or handled frequently. Coroplast is strong and durable providing years of use. While being the strongest the corrugation can be seen through the print.
