Some people just can't bear to be separated from their loved ones. Whether it's a family member, a friend, or even a pet, there are some people in our lives whom we just want to have by our side at all times.
If you're someone like that then I have the perfect present for you: a company called 'Cardboard Cutout Standies' is offering its customers the chance to create and buy a life-size bespoke cardboard cut-out of someone special.
It works like this: all you do is that you just upload the picture you want to use for the cut-out, and then await the exciting delivery of your loved one printed out in two dimensions. You can even go further and send in pictures of your pets, and have it blown up to a massive size.
One customer named Sarah Roberts wrote a glowing review about the business on social media, when she had a cardboard cut-out made of her pet dog so she could bring it to her wedding. Uploading a pic to Facebook, Sarah wrote: "Our sweet boy couldn’t be at our wedding so we had a cardboard cut out of him made! It was PERFECT! [sic]''
She added: "I was a little shocked at how big he turned out but I actually love it so so much because it’s very extra and perfectly represents how much we love our pup! I ordered it 2 weeks before our wedding and I was nervous we wouldn’t get it in time, but it showed up on our doorstep about 5 days later. We are keeping this forever. Highly recommended!!! [sic]"

So there you have it: if you're looking for a way to have your friends with you at all times, then why not check it out for yourself?
