I am getting married in just 10 days… aaahhhh SO MUCH to do, which is why I haven’t reviewed much lately, …but… this review is quite unique and hopefully gives you all a creative idea for the holiday season!
Because my fiance’ and I cannot have our precious rottweiler, Bubba, at our wedding celebration, I decided to do some research online and see if I could get a cardboard cut-out made of him! So for the photo shoot, of course I went out and bought a doggy bib tuxedo (Petsmart, $20) that is TOO CUTE for words!! OMG seriously, isn’t he the cutest!?! I bought size L and the velcro closure bib fits perfect, but the cuff links wouldn’t velcro shut so I had to use big safety pins.
StumpsParty.com calls them “standee’s” and they come in several different sizes. I wanted mine to be life-like, so I purchased the “Larger than Lifesize” that stands 3′ tall. (It’s a little larger than Bubba is in real life, but you can only tell that when he’s standing right next it… which he won’t be.) First, you’ll see the actual photo I took and the second one is the photo of the actual “standee”.
The standee was $54.99, the shipping was $16.95, no tax, making the total $71.94… more than I would have liked to pay for cardboard… but we only get married once right? (Hopefully …LOL) It shipped out the day after I ordered it… and arrived in less than a week from when I placed the order! It arrived in a GIANT flat cardboard envelope-like box… which had dirty shoe marks ALL over it! Grrrrr… because of that, there was a slight crease in the cardboard/ photo/ cut-out by Bubb’s neck and the side of his face …not too noticeable, but unacceptable for a $72 piece of cardboard!!
Even though the standee has a crease and the photo coloring appears to be darker than the actual photo I uploaded onto their website,… I give this product and website 3 paws!
I am super excited to have cardboard Bubb with us at the wedding… and I plan on having him in my office at work afterwards LOL!
