We all have that trip or event of the lifetime, where we snap a million photos and wish we could share the experience with everyone we know. Sure, our friends and family can follow us on Instagram or Facebook, but I love the idea of bringing these memories to life in a very tangible way - one that we can touch, feel and USE, in addition to seeing. The best way I have found to do this is to create customized photo gifts! York Photo is a custom photo printing company that offers everything from regular photo printing services, to personalized photo books, blankets, mugs, canvas art - you name it and they probably offer it! With Angeline graduating high school soon and shipping off to the Navy, I decided to get a little creative with my mom's Mother's Day present this year and created two gifts for her that I knew she's love - an easel panel and mug with photos of my daughter and I!
The York Photo easel panel was so easy to create and the finished product was just beautiful! All I had to do was select the design I wanted, which was only $14.99, and then upload the photo I wanted to use.
The 5 inch x 7 inch photo panel is a contemporary way to display your favorite photos. The easel-backed panel has a glass-like, glossy scratch resistant finish and black ⅝ inch edging and backing. Your photo is printed directly to the panel and it’s ready for display without any framing required!
I love that it isn't thin, so it should hold up well over time without any wear and tear.
The photo came out beautifully, even though it was a photo taken with an iPhone 6s!
I also used this photo on the customized mug I made for my mother, which was easy to create as well! There were so many designs to choose from - but I also had the option to create my own design. I am not very creative, so I just chose one that was appropriate for Mother's Day. BUt as you can see, there are designs for all kinds of holidays, or even great sentiments in general.
Again, I just uploaded the photos I wanted to use and dragged and dropped them into the appropriate sections on the layout.
The ceramic photo mugs come in both 11 and 15 ounce sizes for $10.99, but I chose the 11 for my mom. I love that even though this ceramic photo mug is personalized with photos, it's still microwave and dishwasher safe!
Didn't they both turn out amazing?
York Photo offers so much more than personalized mugs and easel photos!
Some of the other items I looked at were calendars, prints and posters, ornaments, cards and stationary, mouse pads, dishes, aprons and drinkware - and they were all easily customizable with your favorite photos!
