Durable Corrugated Materials
We offer two corrugated materials to choose from. Think about where you will be placing your big head cutouts when you are choosing the material for your order.
If you will be using your cardboard face cutouts indoors, such as at a party event center or in a home, we suggest getting the corrugated cardboard option. This big head cutouts material is affordable and reliable due to the long-lasting 1/16in thick cardboard that is more durable than store-bought cardboard. The front of this material is white, creating bold and vibrant colors that really stand out when printing your big head posters.
If you plan on using your face signs outdoors, such as at sports games and graduation ceremonies, we suggest our premium corrugated plastic. This big head cutouts material is better for outdoor environments due to its weather resistance and UV protection. This is the same strong material we use for our yard signs and yard letters.We highly recommend our corrugated plastic material as this material has greater longevity with better resistance to folding, tearing, and soilage over the basic corrugated cardboard.
Face Cut Outs in 2 Sizes
We offer our big head cutouts in two sizes. Keep in mind that the exact size will vary depending on the shape of the photo. We have one size that is approximately 12in x 18in, which is closer to the size of a human head. This head cut out is more lifelike in size and works best as decorations. Our other, larger size is about 24in x 36in, which is bigger than a human head so that it is easily seen from a crowd. This giant head cutout is the size commonly used for basketball games and graduation ceremonies so that people can see the prints from a distance. Think about whether you want a life size face cut out or a more comically large one when deciding which one to choose.
