We work with your favorite photographs to create Custom Silhouettes of the people, pets, and special moments in your life. From those treasured pictures, Le Papier Studio creates one-of-a-kind heirloom pieces: silhouette portraits and exquisite jewelry, and perfectly personal accessories. All custom silhouettes created by Le Papier Studio will be kept on file for any future uses you may have.
To personalize any of our products with a custom silhouette from your photographs, start by selecting the desired product. Where applicable, you may select from our existing silhouettes or request for your Custom silhouette to be created. Each custom silhouette we create is subject to a one-time-fee ($10.00). Please note that each person, pet, makes for one custom silhouette - a family of four (dad, mom, two kids) will require four silhouettes. Use this as a guideline when selecting the quantity of Custom Silhouettes for your order.
A digital proof will be sent via email in 5-7 business days. Please make any desired adjustments at this time. A final proof will be emailed and, once approved, we begin to process, create, and ship your order. Please allow 2-3 weeks for all custom orders to arrive after they have been approved.
If you need an item in a hurry, or want to make sure it will reach you by a certain date, please contact us at (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we will do our best to answer any questions and accommodate your request. Additional fees may apply for expedited production and/or express shipping.

What type of pictures should I send?
We recommend you sending pictures that reflect your everyday style. For gifts like throw pillows, cuff links, jewelry, face profile pictures will create the most beautiful silhouettes.
I have a lot of pictures but don't know which ones to send.
If you can't decide which pictures to upload or need some help selecting the best ones, please feel free to include extra pictures. We would be happy to look through them and pick the one we feel best describes the subject.
How do I determine how many Custom Silhouettes to add to my item?
If you have one child, pet, etc, you need to purchase 1 Custom silhouette. For a family of four (dad, mom and two kids) you would need to purchase 4 Custom silhouettes. Each subject requires its own custom silhouette to be drawn.
Will I receive a proof?
All custom orders (orders for which you have uploaded pictures for custom silhouettes) receive one electronic proof within 5-7 business days of placing the order. If more than one proof is requested, an additional charge will apply to the order (you will be billed separately). After the final proof has been approved, please allow 2-3 weeks for production and shipping.

Please note that for our smallest size charms, some of the facial features might be less noticeable and not as clear compared to the actual proof you will receive. The digital proofs are done according to the size of the picture/s provided with your order. The actual silhouette charms are much smaller. If this is an issue for you, please opt for a larger size charm. We are happy to answer additional questions regarding sizing, prior to you placing an order.
Le Papier Studio makes every attempt to accurately display all colors shown in this website. However, colors may very slightly due to the variation on the monitor they are viewed on. Our resin jewelry might at times have tiny visible air bubbles. These are due to the nature of resin and are not to be mistaken with "dust particles". For a cleaner, crisp silhouette, we recommend you purchased any of our laser cut silhouette jewelry.
