To make a POPout, the photo is printed twice. One print is attached to the acrylic and is then trimmed so the photo and edge of the acrylic is exactly matched. This becomes the background of the POPout. The other print is attached to a 2nd piece of acrylic, but instead of trimming around the outer edge, the background is completely cut away from the subject. This "cutout" is then attached to the background and lined up to exactly cover the same subject in the background. The subject literally "jumps" out of the background! POPouts make very impressive gifts! WARNING Photo cutouts are NOT TOYS and should kept from small children. Small parts can break off and cause a choking hazard.
I can't WAIT for my daughter to open this gift. Al, you did a wonderful job as always. She will cherish this forever. See you again soon! Laurie
Al made NINE photo cutouts and photo popouts for me this time around. They are all holiday gifts, mostly for the parents and grandparents of the four new nieces and nephews recently born to my family members. The cutouts and popouts are all sitting on my mantel, waiting for me to wrap and send them, and I am reluctant to send them away because they are all so gorgeous. The parents and grandparents of these new babies are going to be so happy when they see these cuties. Thanks to Al for his excellent work and creativity. I'll be back many more times before I kick the bucket!
As always it turned out awesome! Purchased many items from Al.
I love all of the products I order from Al! My house is filled with POPouts and Cutouts. We also give tons away as gifts! Such a fun unique gift idea!
I have lost track of how many photos of my kids that Al has done since 2009. They have all met or exceeded expectations. Al is gracious, very prompt and fairly priced. Highly recommend!
My client LOVED the pop out I made from his last Christmas photo. These are the best gifts!
My friends loved their pop-out. Their 4 year old said it was a special gift. Thanks for doing such a great job.
