We produce life-size standees in a variety of materials, each with its own unique features.

  • The standard, most economical material available for your life-size standup is coated cardboard. This option is best for indoor use and moderate handling.
  • For the highest print-quality standup photos, we recommend foam core. This is a very flat material and provides the sharpest image quality for your life-sized cutout.
  • If you need your life-size cutout to survive the elements, or you want to reuse it for multiple events, we recommend corrugated plastic. This material is similar in construction to cardboard but is impervious to the elements and more durable than regular cardboard.

All of the materials are printed with UV-resistant, waterproof inks on commercial quality inkjet printers. Your life-sized cutout will not fade in the sun and will look great for many years.

Cardboard Cutout Standees include a sturdy stand with all life-size cutouts. Cardboard cutouts and foam core cutouts are set up quickly with a permanently attached stand. Corrugated plastic cutouts set-up quickly with a stand that can be removed and re-attached. It’s our best seller, perfect for easy disassembly and transport to the next trade show or promotion.

Text Options

We offer a variety of ways to add text to your life-size standee. Speech bubbles, thought bubbles, and signs are all available. Want your cutout to include a humorous quote? We can print the text you want in a speech bubble, thought bubble, or sign. Or, if you and your friends want to use your creativity and write your own messages, choose the dry-erase whiteboard option for your cutout. Have a great time with your "flat" guest of honor by choosing a message option.

If you're planning to use your life-sized cardboard cutout for a promotion or trade show, our design department can add text or corporate logos to your order. Engage your customers with an eye-catching custom cardboard cutout.

Party Options

If you want to use your life-size custom cutout for photo opportunities, Cardboard Cutout Standees can help. Make your standee into a photo booth with a face cutout, or ask us to remove the head for a stand-behind option. With a face cutout stand-in, your friends and guests can become a superhero, fireman, pilot, or even an animal or space creature! For these options, we can provide full-body party cardboard cutouts or we can print your life-size standee to include the background printed on a full rectangular sheet to enable your guests to best hide behind the image for that perfect picture.

Photo Editing

Sometimes, it is difficult to find the perfect photo for your life-sized standup. For assistance with capturing and selecting images, read some tips.

Here are some cases where we can help. If the photo for your life-size cutout:

  • is cut off at the legs, knees, or feet, we can add the missing body parts.
  • has an arm hidden behind another person, we can add an arm.
  • includes an annoying shadow or flash spot, we can eliminate it.
  • is holding a plate, we can turn it into a margarita glass!

Our skilled team of Photo editors can fix your photo to produce a perfect cutout. Cardboard Cutout Standees Photo Editors can also do head swaps between images so your final standee will look perfect for your party. When placing an order, just make a note of how you would like your image edited.

Extra Large Options

Cardboard Cutout Standees can make extra-large cutouts. Though our maximum size for a single-panel standee is 45 inches by 118 inches, we can stretch the limits by using multiple panels to produce giant cardboard cutouts. This allows us to make life-sized cutouts for everything, from large group standup photos to that life-sized giraffe you always wanted!
