Custom Cartoons - Illustrating Your Point
So you need to find an image to pep up your content. Stock photo? Meh. Graph? Zzzz… Infographic? Too long, didn’t read.
If you’re looking for a unique way to reinforce your message and entertain your audience, consider custom cartoons.
Why use custom cartoons?
Cartoons are memorable.
Studies show that humorous material is more easily recalled. It’s called the humor effect and it’s why you remember funny lines from sitcoms and commercials years later. If you want your message to stick, put it in a cartoon.
Cartoons get shared.
It used to be people cut out cartoons and taped them on the fridge. Now people share them globally on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest with just a click. If you want to expand your message’s reach, encourage sharing with a cartoon.
Cartoons are effective.
“Marketers using cartoons see newsletter open rate of 45% vs. 5-8%” - Ekaterina Walter
“Content with relevant images gets 94 percent more views than content without.” - Kevan Lee
“The next time you are thinking about ways to break through the content marketing clutter, consider the power of the marketing cartoon.” - Bill Carmody
How It Works
People often describe my custom cartoons as gentle good humor, and I like to think the process of creating them is much the same. Here’s how it works:
Tell me what you’d like you cartoon to be about. I’ll write up a few funny ideas and email them over. Let me know what you like and what you’d like to change. Or you can write your own; that’s good too.
Next I’ll email over some line art. Again, let me know what you like and what you’d like to change.
I’ll shade and/or color the aproved line art and email over your ready-to-use custom cartoon. Easy!
How do we get started?
Choose a package and fill in the info. I’ll email you and we’ll start working out the details of your cartoons.
Should I choose gray or color?
It depends. Line art and gray wash cartoons are more traditional and convey sophistication. They’re great for newsletters, presentations, annual reports and textbooks. Color cartoons are more modern and eye-catching. They’re good for advertising, websites, calendars and promotional items. (If you pick the Premium option you don’t have to choose!)
What if I don’t like the sketch I receive?
That’s what revisions are for.
How long does it take?
Custom cartoons are generally delivered within one week of your approval of the sketch.
When do I pay?
After delivery of your cartoon.
What format will I get my cartoon in?
Your custom cartoon will be delivered as a 300 DPI JPEG. If you need something else, just let me know.
