It was August 2005 and my wife and I had been invited to two weddings on the same day. She and I were attending her cousin’s wedding in Napa, but she would be missing her college friend’s wedding in Los Angeles. It was one of those times when you wish you could be in two places at the same time but of course that’s impossible. Well, not really…. My wife had an idea. She got dressed in a cocktail dress, did her make up, and told me to take a photo of her from her head to waist. I had a printing business at the time and she asked me to print the photo “life size” and mount it on foam board. She then asked me to cut herself out of the board to create a life size cutout that she could send to the wedding. She sent it with a friend and needless to say, it was a hit! It sat at the table with all her college friends and took photos all night, danced with the bride and groom and was the life of the party. Hearing stories the next day made us laugh so hard and feel so good. Our silly life size cutout idea spread so much joy to the giver and receiver and we loved it so much that we decided to make it a business. Our mission is simple… SPREAD JOY!!
