Cardboard Cutouts / Standees

Make sure you stand out at trade shows and industry events with our standees.

Launching a new product or promoting an event? Get your favourite celebrity to help you out in the form of a life-sized cardboard cutout. Cardboard cut-outs are proven to grab the attention of customers. Ideal for POS marketing tools, for retail displays, photo opportunities, exhibitions, press releases or conferences, life size cut outs are the answer if you want to get noticed.

Are you ready for Pantomime season? Every year we provide many theatres cardboard cut outs and standees to use as part of their advertising campaigns.
A fun way to provide updated information on offers or prices is to use a cardboard cut out of a member of staff with a blank poster or speech bubble for writing information. You could even add a leaflet holder to your cut out.

Of course, our standees aren't limited to images of people. Why not print an enlarged version of your product or freestanding product showcards for an effective promotional display in supermarkets and DIY stores.

Our cardboard cut outs are a cut above the rest. Cutouts have to be realistic when viewed up close. Therefore, we only print cut outs on our Agfa Anapurna press with highly durable, UV-resistant inks in 4 colour (CYMK) to give true colour accuracy and stunning definition. Once printed on 5mm foamex board we then mount a strong strut to the reverse making them free standing.

We aim to deliver your finished standees and cutouts within 3-5 working days of proof approval. Free delivery for all UK orders.

Designs can be uploaded at the checkout stage. Images and photos should be uploaded in PDF or JPEG format as single pages; our team can give you guidance as required.
