How to Create Your Own Fathead Custom Creation

There are few things you’ll need to know when creating any Fathead Custom Creation:

Find Your Photo

The first and most important step to a Custom Creation, is finding a great photo or image. You may already have a photo or you may plan to take one. Either way, you need a high resolution image (a large digital image). The higher the resolution, the sharper and larger the image can be. Below is a list of suggested guidelines for your file size:

  • Use an image more than 2MB in size
  • Use an image more than 1800 x 1800 pixels in size
  • Use an image with between 180-300 DPI (Dots Per Inch)




If you're planning on taking a photo, use a digital camera that can take a high quality, high resolution digital photograph. You may have to adjust your settings to get the highest picture quality. Below are some guidelines when taking your photo:

  • Limit the use of zoom. Zooming takes resolution away from the image.
  • Get as close to the subject as possible to utilize all the space.
  • Make sure there is adequate lighting; dim photos make for a dim custom creation.

We'll check the image when you upload it and tell you if it's going to be OK for the Custom Creation size you chose. If you receive a warning that resolution is too low, we recommend you upload another photo. Please note: because these are one of a kind items, all sales of Custom Creations are final.

Most importantly, you must own the rights to the image(s). If you took the photograph that you’re sending us then you own the rights. If someone else took the photograph, you need permission from that person to use the photograph for a Fathead Custom Creation. If you used a professional photographer he or she should be able to provide you with a release form. If you upload a licensed image or an image you do not own the rights to, we will not be able to produce your Custom Creation.

Photo Formats

Once you select your custom type and size, you will be asked to upload your photo(s). Please note that we accept JPEG, GIF and PNG photo files.

Choose Your Product

From the wall to your phone, we offer a variety of product types and sizes:

  • Die Cut Vinyl Prints
  • Vinyl Mural Prints

Proofs

For most of our custom products, you will have the option to request a free digital proof via email. This option is not available for Custom Skins, Cases or Fat Dots™.

If you decide you want a proof, allow up to 2 additional business days for turnaround. If you need your finished order faster or if you're happy with your current selections, we suggest you skip this option.

Processing and Shipping Time

Custom Creations take 7 to 14 business days to process and design plus shipping time. If we have any problems with the photo you sent, we’ll let you know. Free digital proofs (optional) are sent by email so you can see exactly what your custom order will look like before we print. We recommend that you receive a proof due to the fact that sales of Custom Creations are final.

Returns

All sales of Custom Creations are final. We will gladly exchange your Custom Creation within 30 days of delivery ONLY if you received it damaged or defective. To exchange your item you must have a return merchandise authorization number issued by Fathead. Call 1-877-FATHEAD (1-877-328-4323) for assistance.

Custom Fathead Die Cut Decal

Custom Die Cut Vinyl Prints feature your photo or image with the background removed.

Material:

Die Cut Vinyl Prints are made of self-adhesive, moveable, reusable vinyl.

Photo Tips:

Like with all of our Custom Creations, a large, high resolution photo (more than 2MB, more than 1800x1800 pixels in size, between 180-300 DPI) works best. The subject that you want cut out should take up most of the photo.

Want to create a die cut image of your company’s logo? We can do that too; just upload a high resolution image.

Size Options:

Die Cut Vinyl Prints are available as small as 8” x 10” and as large as 4’ x 6’6” (48” x 78”).

Photo Effects:

Red eye correction and additional color effects are available for an additional charge. Just select your option(s) when creating your custom product.

Important Tips:

Be sure your subject to be cut out is in the center of the photo and fills up the frame as much as possible. Don't cut off part of your subject – we can't add it in later.

If you want us to cut out the background so you can put up the boy in the blue baseball uniform and the ball, you need to tell us. Please give us instructions in the “Design Instructions” section when creating your custom product. Please note: With your die-cut vinyl print, you may select up to three separate people or objects to be cut out from the background. If you wish to do so, please indicate below which items you wish us to include in the finished product. For information on additional cuts, please contact customer service at 1-877-FATHEAD (1-877-328-4323).

Photo Tips:

Since a Stand Out is designed to be taller than it is wide, an image of a vertically orientated person (or people) makes for an ideal Stand Out.
