About Cardboard Cutouts

CardboardCutouts.com was originally launched in 2001 as one of the first e-commerce stores for cardboard cutouts and was acquired in 2020 by the company that owns Build a Head and pawprintsHQ.com and relaunched with new branding and the addition of custom cutouts.

We make custom (better-than-cardboard) cutouts and cutouts of your favorite athlete, actor, musician, cartoon, tv show character, movie character, and more. Be a cutout above the rest.


About Build a Head

Build a Head was launched in 2010 by a couple of college students hoping to cheer on Tour de France winner Lance Armstrong. Wanting to stand out from the crowd of adoring fans, co-founders Bryan Price and Anastasios Chomokos sought to find some big head cutouts of Lance, but they were unable to find a company to make them. The friends decided to make their own. The big head cutouts stood out so much that even Lance took notice. He was so taken by them that he pulled over to sign one and even included a photo of him posing with his big head cutout in his book "Comeback: 2.0". 

Cheering on a famous athlete sparked an idea, but the real growth has come as Build a Head has helped superfans everywhere celebrate their own friends and family. Since its inception over a decade ago, Build a Head has sold over a million big head cutouts and has expanded the product line into life-size standup cutouts, custom keychains, and personalized Christmas ornaments. You can be sure that the Build a Head team is always hard at work developing new custom ways to help you make something memorable.  

In July 2019, Build a Head was acquired by a new group of friends: brothers Chad and Tyler Turner and James Green. Since acquiring the business, the Build a Head team has launched PawprintsHQ—a pet-focused cutout product—as well as acquiring and re-launching CardboardCutouts.com.  

Build a Head has been and continues to be focused on helping customers make something memorable, and we are grateful for the hundreds of thousands of families who have trusted Build a Head to be part of taking special events—birthday parties, graduations, bachelorette parties, weddings, life celebrations, and more—from ordinary to extraordinarily awesome celebrations.
