I must admit to save a few pennies I've been making cards for friends and relatives birthdays. Not those beautifully sculptured art & craft cards.....just simple ones using some of my photos. It's been fun to do.....especially if I have a good (or funny) photo of the recipient. A speech bubble here and there can result in a very personalised cards. In Phil's (grandson) case I found a photo of his favourite football player and with the aid of a speech bubble had him saying "Happy Birthday Phil". They seem to have gone down with family and friends well and have saved me a fortune. A decent card with a nice rhyme inside can cost upwards of £5.......
With...dare I mention it....Christmas looming on the horizon I've been wondering if I can use some of my photos in personalised gifts. Perhaps one of my flower photos as a Photo Canvas or maybe personalised Calenders. There must be lots of Photo Gifts that would make good Christmas presents. Even nicely framed Photo Prints of memorable occasions would be a lovely gift to receive.
Sadly I'm not clever enough to make anything like this AND make it look professional. Isn't this age of technology wonderful when companies like Photofun.com will do the work for you. Just load up your photos, put in your order and (for much less cost than a shop bought item) the gift arrives in the mail. The only difficulty is choosing which photos to use!
