If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a picture printed on a coffee mug, tote bag or wall clock is worth a lifetime of precious memories. This Mother's Day, printable photo gifts are easier to produce and more affordable than ever, thanks to an imaginative entrepreneur who has launched PrintableMemories.com, a company that creates unique and out-of-the-box photo gifts.
"Photo mugs, picture frames, and key chain tokens are old hat," says Brian Cash, who founded the company. "We're focusing on unusual items that can be highly customized, like a photo afghan blanket for Grandma that includes a picture of her grandchildren, or a personalized puzzle made from Mom's wedding picture."
One of the company’s newer products, launched especially for Mother's Day, is a “photo collage blanket,” a machine-washable fleece that’s dyed, not screen printed. Customers can upload up to 9 photos, then choose a background color and custom text message. Designers at PrintableMemories.com will lay out the photo collage and even send a proof before production. Upload Mom’s favorite photo of the kids, pets, wedding shots, or an anniversary photo – the photo blanket maintains a poster-like quality through countless washes.
Customers can easily create their own photo products on the Printable Memories website by choosing from a vast selection of products (everything from pillows, blankets and aprons to cookie tins, clocks and caps) and following the easy instructions for uploading photos. The gift can be customized even further by choosing a photo treatment (such as black and white or sepia), a personal message, a font, and a color. The process is extremely easy, but customer service by phone is readily available if assistance is needed. Submitted images are individually inspected by company designers prior to production, and shipping rates are extremely reasonable.
"Mothers will never tire of chocolates and flowers," says Cash. "But they truly appreciate a gift created especially for them. A personalized photo gift makes the statement that you've taken the time to really create something unique. It's a true gift from the heart."
A creative entrepreneur in Oakland, Calif., Brian Cash founded PrintableMemories. His operation started small and local, but sales grew by word of mouth. “Once we established our catalog online, word spread even more,” he says. “But we still promise one-on-one customer service; our telephone number is on each and every page of our website because we value our personal relationships with our business friends.”
