Fan Cutout Guidelines

WHAT TO WEAR

  • Wear your favorite Mud Hens or Walleye attire.
  • Make sure your shirt or jersey does not blend in with your background.
  • If you wear glasses or a hat, make sure to avoid glares, flashbacks, and shadows.

WHERE TO TAKE YOUR PHOTO

  • Avoid backlighting by finding a light source and directly facing it.
  • Do not put your back to the light source.
  • Make sure personal and/or private information is not pictured.
  • Solid-colored backgrounds work best.

HOW TO TAKE YOUR PHOTO

  • One person or pet per photo.
  • Do not take a selfie. Have someone else take your photo for you or set a timer on your camera.
  • For the best results, stand 3-4 feet from the camera.
  • Position the camera at eye-level, frame yourself from the waist-up, and include some space around your head and shoulders.
  • Take the photo in a vertical (portrait) format, and make sure it is formatted in the largest file size possible (must be at least 1 MB).
  • Don’t raise your arms above your shoulders or outside of your body width. They will be cropped out.

SIGNS AND PROPS

  • You can hold a sign or prop (flag, foam hand, etc.), but it needs to stay within your body width.
  • Signs must be team-related, in good taste and not of a commercial nature.
  • NOTE: Inappropriate gestures, offensive or negative references to any ECHL/MiLB team or player, and political statements or endorsements will not be allowed.

SUBMITTING YOUR PHOTO

  • Once you have followed the guidelines above, you are ready to submit your photo! NOTE: If you want to use a pre-existing photo, make sure your file is over 1 MB.
  • Smaller files may be blurry or not as crisp.
  • All purchasers will be prompted to read and accept the consent and release form.

Purchasers whose image(s) is not approved will receive notification and further details from the Toledo Mud Hens and Walleye organization.

NOTE: Once ordered, photo cutouts are non-refundable.

Fan Cutout FAQs

Q: Can I purchase more than one Fan Cutout?
