Our store is hosted on Wix. They provide us with the online e-commerce platform that allows us to sell our products and services to you. Please remember that a caricature (with regards to MKcaricatures) is a simplified interpretation of a person. The idea is for you to be able to identify who it is but it's equally important to remember that it's not meant to be an exact representation of that person. Please see examples on our website. The caricature will be a reflection of the photo you upload so if the photo is pixelated, cropped, taken in dark or coloured lighting, we will do the best we can but the final outcome will be relative to the quality of the photo.
