Unique Wedding Gift

A wedding gift has the potential to be a once in a lifetime kind of gift.  To do that, it needs to be unique and personalized but what else?

It should be something emotional for the couple.  This is one occasion where it really is the thought that counts and not the amount spent.  Few things bring back more memories and emotions than a photo.  A photograph from the wedding of the new couple or a really great photograph of them while there were still dating are great choices.

Now that you have a photo, what do you do with it?  A Photo Blanket makes a great unique wedding gift for three reasons.  First, being made from their photo it’s truly a one-of-a-kind.  Something they’ve never seen before and won’t have anything like it.  Second, it’s a gift you know they will actually use.  It won’t be put in a cabinet only to be brought out for special occasions like fine china.  Third, every time they look at it they will think of each other and the love they share.

Of all the photo blankets we offer, there are two that are most popular as wedding gifts.  Our Woven Photo Blanket has been around the longest and is the most popular.  It is woven from 100% Cotton and has the fringe on the sides.  The woven blanket is a more traditional, heirloom type of blanket with the detail being like an artist rendering or painting.  It’s a classic!

The second most popular photo blanket is also a newer type.  Our Double Layer Fleece Photo Blanket is a stunning blanket.  The image detail on the fleece blanket is absolutely beautiful.  The dye sublimation process creates an image with photographic detail.  Our regular fleece blanket has been a top seller for years.  With the double layer, we sew a second blanket onto the back.  The edges are rolled and sewn for a classy, finished edge.  The result is a photo blanket with detail better than any other and thicker than any other.  This makes it a great blanket to both look at and snuggle under on the couch.

For those looking to give a truly memorable and unique wedding gift, either a woven or fleece photo blanket will be a gift they happy couple will remember cherish for a lifetime.  And they’ll have you to thank for it.

Birthday Gift for Mom

Birthday gifts can be tricky to figure out.  You give them every year so you always have to answer the question ‘what to give her this year?’  There are lots of answers but not a lot of really good ones.  To make a good birthday gift it has to be something she will like, something she can actually use and something personalized just for her.

I don’t think I now a woman who doesn’t have more than one purse.  Because they use (need?) more than one, it makes a great opportunity for a birthday present.  It doesn’t need to replace her everyday purse, although it just might.  It could be great for just certain occasions.  Maybe something for going out with the girls or for all those shopping trips or just a weekend purse for errands and soccer games.

Simply pick a favorite photo.  It may be of her kids, a favorite vacation spot, a wedding photo or a photo of her and her friends.  Text can be added for free, maybe the date of the photo or a great big Happy Birthday.

We offer several styles and sizes of photo purses to suit just her needs.  Some like big, carry-it-all bags while others like something smaller and more manageable.  All of them are top quality purses to being with.  We don’t offer cheap purses that will fall apart once your start using them.  The printing process, we use dye sublimation, creates near photographic detail in the image.  The image quality is just fabulous.

All of our photo purses are easy to care for and keep clean.  It doesn’t need to sit on a shelf to look good.  They are meant to be carried around to show off whatever photo you chose to place on it.

Ordering is easy any time of day.  Our website allows you to check your order status and will send you an email with your tracking number when your Photo Purse ships out.  This way you’ll know it’s on the way and when to expect it.  If it’s a gift shipping directly to her, we’ve got that covered too.  The packing slip does not contain any pricing information so she won’t know the deal you got on it.

Special requests and collages are also possible.  Browse out Photo Purses and let us know if we can help.

Cheerleader Team Photo Blankets

A Cheerleader team recently enquiredabout Photo Blankets for their team.  They wanted something with the team photo on it for each of the girls.  With tweleve girls on the team, the detail in the Photo Beach Towels and the smaller knitted and woven Photo Blankets would be marginal.  The extra larger knitted or extra large woven would work as would both sizes of the Fleece Photo Blanket.

The detail in the blanket was an important part of their decision.  Beased upon this, they decided to order the large Fleece Photo Blanket.   Of all our photo blankets, this one has the most detail.  They submitted a photo with good contrast and lighting and wanted the school’s name and year added across the bottom.

The team mom told us the girls were thrilled with the results and now have something to remember their time together on their cheerleader team.
