No matter how much we enjoy choosing presents for our loved ones, we all know that one person who is notoriously hard to buy presents for. That’s why I love discovering new gift ideas that are unique and would be perfect for those situations when I’m a bit stuck for present ideas.
Twenty Fingers recently got in touch with some information on their bespoke, personalised gifts and I was very interested in discovering more about their products. The company specialises in unique papercut portraits that are specially made for the receiver. At first I wasn’t sure what a papercut portrait was, however upon browsing the website I actually loved the idea! As you can see from the photos in this post, a papercut portrait is basically an image of your choice that is transformed into a portrait using only high-quality paper that is cut out to create an image.
The best bit about the Twenty Fingers papercut portraits is that you can choose to have whatever you (or the gift receiver) will love made into a portrait. This includes family portraits, favourite quotes, pictures of the person’s pet, a family genealogy tree or even a very special baby ultrasound scan papercut which would be perfect for any parents-to-be. As you can probably tell from the photos in this post, I chose to have a portrait done with my two lovely cats.
The ordering process was quick, simple and allowed me to customise the portrait until I was 100% happy with the result. I started by uploading a photo of my cats, then chose the size of the portrait (standard 10″ x 12″ or large 12″ x 16″). I then got to choose the frame colour, where I went for ‘oak’, as well as the glass type (standard or ‘invisible true colour’) and finally I got to choose my preferred colour for the paper itself. I went for black, however there are over 20 different colours to choose from.
Soon after I placed my order, Twenty Fingers got in touch with a proof of the portrait for my approval, and following a minor amendment which I requested, the portrait was sent out. I received my portrait very quickly and was pleased to find that it was packaged well with plenty of bubble wrap in a protective cardboard box.
The portrait looked even better in person than it did in the proof I was sent, and it feels like such a good quality product too. You can tell that a lot of care has gone into making the portrait as perfect as possible – and it has a nice weight to it as well! It would undoubtedly make a lovely present!
