Frequently Asked Questions


I need help. How exactly does Paper Portraits work?
[back to top]

First, select the card and background that you would like to use for your stationery items. To begin designing your character, click on the "Personalize" button on the product page for the design of your choice. Next, you'll need to choose a character and skin tone by clicking your cursor on one of the characters that appears on the screen, followed by the fair, medium or dark complexion hues. The screen will then transition to the dressing room, where all of the fun really begins! Click on the categories at the top of the page to customize your character’s hair, clothing, accessories and more. You don’t have to follow any particular order, so feel free to visit the different categories as many times as you'd like—just make sure you visit every category at least once to make sure your character is as complete as possible!

After you've finished designing your character, click on "Design Your Product" at the bottom of the page. When the stationery screen appears, drag and drop your character wherever you would like it to be printed on your product. You can then enter your customized text using the font, color and text size of your choice. You can even further customize your product by clicking and dragging the font box to any of the locations on the card.

When you're satisfied with your design, you will be able to preview the final product before proceeding to the checkout area.

Please remember to save your character if you decide to leave the personalization process at any time. Your work will not be automatically saved. You can access your saved character by clicking "Open" at the bottom of the page when you return to the Paper Portraits personalization process.

Can I customize my character with an outfit or item that I don't see online?
[back to top]

Unfortunately, we do not offer any additional outfits or items beyond what is currently on our site at this time. We will continue to add more characters, outfits and accessories to the Paper Portraits application in the near future.

Will there be more designs added to the website in the future?
[back to top]

Absolutely! We'll be updating and adding designs as often as we can. We'd love any suggestions or feedback you have that might help us decide which portions of the application we need to update first. Email us at // if you'd like to share your ideas!

What products can I place my character on?
[back to top]

Currently, we offer the following formats and sizes:

  • Stationery and Invitations - 5x7 flat
  • Note cards – 3.5 x 5 flat
Can I special order a character printed on different formats or sizes than what is currently offered?
[back to top]

Unfortunately, we only offer Paper Portraits printed on the 5x7 flat and 3x5 flat cards listed above at this time. We will add different formats and sizes to the product line in the near future.

What if I need to make a change to my character or the wording of my card after I've placed the order?
[back to top]

If your order has not gone to print, we can cancel it and you will be able to redesign the item as you see fit. Please contact us at 1-877-300-9256 or // if you would like to make a change.

What does it mean when the website says that this product is direct web-to-print?
[back to top]

Paper Portraits products are printed exactly as they appear on the preview screen. Unlike other Tiny Prints stationery, your Paper Portraits design will not be edited by our staff. Please make sure you are happy with the exact design and text you see on the preview screen, since our professional designers and quality assurance team members will not be reviewing your card before it goes to print.

How long does it take for my Paper Portraits products to ship once I've placed my order?
[back to top]

We typically process orders within 2-3 business days of the date you make your purchase. Rush orders will be printed within 2 business days for an additional charge of $15. Orders combined with other items from may require a longer processing time.

Once I create a character, do I own the rights to it?
