Cardboard Cutouts

Make sure you stand out at trade shows and industry events with our personalised cardboard cutouts.

Cardboard cut out printing options

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 cutouts are the answer if you want to get noticed.

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

Pick from a wide range of standard sizes (please see specifications tab for details) or create your very own custom size. Add optional lamination to give durability and finish: opt for gloss, matt, dry-wipe (so you can write on your standee) or anti-graffiti (to prevent vandalism).

Create your own personalised design using our free, downloadable custom life size cardboard cutouts templates or take advantage of our in house design services.

Alternative cardboard cut out uses

Cardboard standees aren’t just for celebrities; consider panto season! Every year we provide many theatres cardboard cut outs and standees to use as part of their advertising campaigns.

Similarly, a fun way to provide updated information on offers or prices is to use a custom cardboard cutout 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.

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

Our custom printed crossfold posters come with fast, free delivery and quick order turnaround.
