Every day, I get an email or two from folk asking me where they can get their photos converted into personalised caricatures so I thought I’d use this post to discuss my personal recommendations.
Over the years, I’ve tried out a number of different caricature companies, each with varying degrees of satisfaction in terms of both the quality of the work and customer satisfaction.
Rather than moan about the few bad experiences I’ve had, I’d rather tell you about the great service I received from one caricature artist in particular.
A couple of mates of mine were getting married and with just a week before the big day, I realised that I hadn’t bought them a gift yet.
Over the years we’d known each other, my friends and I had a tradition of getting each other unique, personalised and sometimes weird gifts so I began to rack my brains for something cool to give them for their Wedding Day. After much thought and Internet browsing I decided on getting them one of these awesome wedding caricatures.
Having set my heart on getting them A3 prints of a wedding-themed caricature I noticed that the website stated that all caricatures would take 5 days to be drawn and delivered. As I only I had just over a week before the Wedding ceremony, I started to worry that I wouldn’t receive my order in time.
My fears were calmed after a quick phone call to the company, who were very understanding and promised to rush my order through as quickly as they could. I also noted how polite and courteous the gentleman at the other end of the line was (something quite rare in this day and age).
The order process was very simple indeed. I downloaded a couple of photos of my friends from FaceBook and emailed them to the company, paid with my credit card and they did the rest.
I received my order in four days, giving me plenty of time to get it wrapped and prepare my speech before the celebration.
The quality of the A3 print was top-notch and it the happy couple absolutely adored it – it now hangs above the fireplace in their home.
So, if your looking for an awesome personalised caricature for a friend, relation or colleague, I can happily recommend these guys.
Of course, I don’t claim to have to tried out every personalised caricature artist in the UK, but in my experience these are the best.
If your a caricature artist or work for a company that provides caricatures from photographs and would like me to review your services, drop me an email via firstname.lastname@example.org.
