None of your other (967) friends on Facebook will tell you, so we’ll have to do it. Your profile picture makes you look — well, let’s just say beer glasses aren’t funny, and it’s not clear from your expression if you’re happy or in pain.
Save face with the help of Epic Silhouettes. Anna and Ashley Coombes will create a personalised image you’ll be proud to show off.
How does it works? The photojournalist and his wife will send you foolproof instructions on taking a suitable picture of yourself. E-mail them a selection, and they’ll pick the one that works best. For £15 they will turn your pic into a template (and send you a proof to approve), which can then be used to create as many products as you’d like.
Choose from classic framed portraits, cotton or velvet cushions (we’re buying the triple portrait cushion, shown here, as soon as we pop out three kids), an elegant vase, whiskey glass or decanter. Turn a parade of silhouettes of family members into a quirky holiday greeting or add your portrait to the top of correspondence cards for a subtle take on personalised stationary. Trust us, it’s a good look.
Available online at epicsilhouettes.com, £29-£245.
