General Caricature FAQ's

Space requirements vary by the number of artists you have at your event. Generally speaking, a 5x8 section of your venue / artist is sufficient but often cram into smaller spaces.

Do you need a table and chairs?

Most of our caricature artists provide their own drawing table/ easel. Chairs and access to electricity are usually the only things we need. A good rule of thumb is 3 chairs / artist.

Do I need a signup sheet for my guests?

Each caricature artist is equipped with a bright informative sign that helps communicate with your guests and organize a line. In most cases, signup sheets aren’t necessary. In cases where you have more than one artist onsite, a single line is most effective.

Most of our caricaturists average between 17-20 people / hour when doing traditional caricatures. Digital caricatures are usually done in full color, and take 7-10 minutes / person.
