Do you have a family member or friend with a birthday coming up? Or have a birthday person that is always hard to shop for? Since framers do all kinds of unique items, we always have great suggestions.
Grandparents always love photos of kids and grand kids. That doesn't mean you have to get everybody in one place for a group photo (although we can help with that too). Framers can take individual photos and group them together in one frame.
Older folks love pictures and pieces of history from their past. Gather up those old black and white photos or mix them with a piece of memorabilia and let your framer show you how great they will look together. If you know of a damaged photo that means a lot to someone, photo restoration and reprints would be great too!
Sports fans love to show off pictures, ticket stubs, and jerseys from their favorite team. Look in closets and drawers to see if they saved "stuff" from a memorable event or game. Even a poster or signed sports print is a great addition to a sport room.
Giving art and prints even to young collectors will ensure a great memory for years to come instead of electronics.
If it's your birthday coming up and you want something framed, but would rather pick it out yourself....ask your friends and family for framing gift certificates.
