Item details

Your precious memories can be turned into single layer SVG files, ready for a variety of applications. If you have a cutting machine, mementos, shirts, glass etching, stencilling are just a few of the possibilities. It is perfect for creating unique personalised gifts, memorials and keepsakes.

People, children, pets, special objects anything can be traced and converted to a ready to cut file for you.

The images in the listing are photo traces I have done, more examples of my work are available upon request.

This is a hand done, artistic process, it is not just a simple quick computer trace.

The result will be more accurate with a good quality, well lit, high resolution original image. This is not essential as the hand tracing is an artistic process, however I will have to guess what the person originally looked like if their face is now just 100 blurred squares in a low quality image.

These drawings are a creative art, and as such will always look a bit different to the original photograph and have a stylised nature as using only black and white, and nothing in between while trying to keep cut-able sized elements can be quite a challenge.

I am willing to revisit images to make changes to ensure your satisfaction.
I do need you to be highly specific as to what changes are needed. “The shading on the chin makes it look to big” is good ” something is a bit off” is not.

I go over the final SVG and clean up nodes, to make for smoother cuts, and get the best look possible.

Please advise if you would like a lower detailed version of the final image - useful for making very small cuts to avoid tearing of fine details.

Other files types can be available, just ask and we will try out best, we may not be able to convert to all file types as some require specific software we may not have access to.

This listing price is for a basic single subject image to black only.

Average review
Exactly what I was looking for. I can't trace very well at all. The hand drawn trace is awesome and helped me create this glass for a friend who recently lost her dog.
