The Christmas season has officially kicked in and whether you are organising a party, looking for gift ideas or in charge of designing your corporate Christmas message, booking a caricaturist is a great idea and here are five reasons why:
- Cost Effective Entertainment
We all know Christmas is an expensive time of year and if you’ve been nominated to book this years office party or family get together, you’ll no doubt be on a strict budget. Caricaturists will charge on average around £250 to attend your event for 2 hours during which time, they’ll draw approximately 20 caricatures and have created lots of fun and laughter along the way – just the ticket to get everyone in the Christmas spirit!
- Great Gift Idea
As Christmas comes around every year, it can be difficult to keep coming up with unique and exciting gift ideas for your family, friends and even colleagues. Caricaturists can provide bespoke drawings in full colour and even include pets and hobbies, which can be framed and is guaranteed to be the most coveted present from the pile… earning a few extra brownie points for you of course!
- Corporate Christmas Marketing
If you’re in charge of your company Christmas card this year, or, of providing the teams Christmas gift, then booking a caricaturist to provide a pre-drawn caricature from photographs will provide a quirky spin and show off your company’s friendly and fun side!
- Versatile Christmas Entertainment
Because a caricaturist comes fully self-contained with everything they need and they can either mix & mingle or provide stationary entertainment, it means they will fit into any kind of event or space easily. Booking a caricaturist would be perfect if you are having drinks and nibbles in your office but there isn’t much space between the desks, or you’ve booked a family dinner at your local restaurant and there’s no spare chairs.
- They’ll make all your guests go Ho Ho Ho…
Most caricaturists will draw between 10-15 people per hour and whilst it is great for your guests to take away a memento of the occasion with them, it doesn’t stop there. Caricaturists will naturally draw a crowd and this in itself creates a real buzz. Add that with watching a friend or colleague squirm with embarrassment and anticipation at just how big their nose is going to be creates a fun and exciting atmosphere with guaranteed laughter and Christmas cheer.
