New! 2020 Christmas Photo Cutout Boards

It looks as if much of the country is going ahead with Christmas preparations that aim to preserve most of the festive fun whilst doing everything possible to reduce transmission of a certain little spiky gremlin that’s doing the rounds at the moment.

Santa’s grottos are a good example of such forward planning. Santas nationwide have been attending the Ministry of Fun’s Santa School and learning, among other things, how to sport their special Santa masks. This seasonal safety item cleverly blends in with the Santa costume to cover the great man’s nose and mouth but keep him looking beardy and full of Christmas cheer. Kids are getting used to everyone wearing masks now, so why should Santa be any different?

Christmas Photo Stand-ins

Here at Photo Cutouts, our contribution towards keeping Christmas 2020 a cheerful affair is our new range of Christmas stand-in and photo cutout boards. They have just gone up on our website and are brand new designs, so be the first to grab one!

Visitors to your venue or guests at your Christmas party can take a Selfie With Elfie, try their hand at doing a penguin impression or help Santa’s elves to make toys in his workshop. Some of our boards remain popular year on year, so you could pick one of our evergreen Christmas classics like the Snow Globe. All our Christmas boards are available to hire or buy. Hire one for a one-off event or buy one to bring out year after year.

All boards are printed in high resolution, vibrant colour onto industrial PVC board that is weatherproof, UV-resistant and wipe-clean. They are attached to a sturdy metal frame and strong legs that keep them upright in anything except a gale.

Choose between a stand-in board with a single large hole or a face-in-the-hole board with several individual face holes. Either way, the illusion works a treat and makes for memorable photos.

Get your face in the ho-ho-hole!

This one is really popular …

Photo cutout boards are a proven way to increase public engagement at Christmas events. They create a focus for people to take photos and a branded board helps to promote your event and create a buzz.

Snowglobe christmas face in the ho-ho-hole board

This new snow globe design for 2017 is proving popular. Brands who have bought it include the Brecon Mountain Railway for their Santa Specials, the Elveden Estate for use in their Christmas-themed shops and courtyard, and Orchard Events for use at the Festive Gift Fair at the NEC. It’s a nice cosy design that makes people feel good, warm and Christmassy, and our customers are loving it.

Like all our Christmas boards, the Snow Globe can be personalised and branded with logos, messages, hashtags and other insignia on its large ‘brass plaque’ at the bottom. When the public put their faces in the ho-ho-hole, their shared photos carry the brand’s message far and wide on the web via photo sharing sites and social media. So as well as creating a fun atmosphere at the event itself, it publicises your brand on the interwebs!

Photo boards get people into your brand – literally!

National Trust Christmas photo cutout boards - get your face in the ho-ho-hole!
Any brand can use a photo cutout board to increase engagement – including the National Trust!

Any organisation can boost its PR with a custom-made photo cutout board. Above is a photo of a pair of Christmas boards we made for the National Trust last year. These were for their Hardwick Hall location, and they worked so well that since then they have come back to us and we have made boards for other Trust locations as well.

There are lots of new custom boards that we can’t tell you about because they have not yet been used in public – we don’t like to jump the gun on our customers, so we keep original custom designs under wraps until they are at large and people are engaging with the bran by putting their faces in the ho-ho-hole and sharing photos.

What design can we make for your brand? Ask us on 08450 570321 or email office@connectedshopping.com .

We’ve given the Christmas range a makeover with a fresh and up-to-date design style.

We’ve designed a fun new Christmas board with some new friends for Santa. What do you think?

The choice of how many face holes is yours. In this new design below, you can have Rudolf or Elf cut out or both. Just ask us and we’ll make it the way you like. For children at a Santa’s grotto, for example, you might prefer to have just the elf cut out, because it’s at a better height for kids.
