Brad Morris at Photo Expert, holding up some of the many items that make for great personalized gifts, invites people to come down to the store in Delta or visit them online to find out more about the photographic possibilities.

5 memorable gift ideas: All created from your photos

Personalizing your gifts for hard-to-buy-for people can be this easy!

If you have a hard time coming up with that just-right gift for a family member or friend, it may be time to make it personal.

Brad Morris with Photo Expert in Delta says photo reprints and customized books, scans, calendars, canvases and greeting cards are among the easiest and best ways to share special and lasting memories.

“As many people know, when you’re a parent, time flies and so the photo book you make now of the kids very quickly becomes an irreplaceable treasure,” he says. “These kind of projects are always unique, because the customer who is building it uses their own words and images, we just produce the final product.”

The 5 most popular personalized items

There’s many options for using your favourite photos to create that special gift. If you’re not quite sure which direction to go, Morris offers up a list of the most frequent orders at his store:

A slideshow is another great family gift

Imagine seeing a collection of some of your most memorable and meaningful photographic moments, assembled in a fun, multimedia format that can be the highlight of your next family gathering.

Having Photo Expert create a unique slideshow from your prints, negatives and slides isn’t expensive, but the end result can provide long-lasting entertainment for everyone, Morris says. “Why not surprise your family with a stroll down memory lane on your big screen? Fun, memories and great stories will surely follow.”

Going from print to digital is easy, too

Do you have boxes full of old prints or slides you’d like to digitize, or even just a few? Morris and his crew can help with that task, drawing on their wealth of experience scanning items of all shapes and sizes. And if you’re not able to drop them off, Photo Expert makes it easy, mailing out prepaid scan boxes for you to fill up, send in and then receive the images on a USB drive. “Those images can then be emailed, copied, edited, shared or printed. Family archivists will be in heaven!”

Helping people create lasting memories is extremely satisfying, Morris adds.

“That’s one of the great things about being in the image business. Who else gets to help preserve and display the greatest moments of people’s lives every day?”


October is an ideal time to get your orders for Christmas looked after, with no lineups or mailing deadlines and no sense of panic. Check out Photo Expert’s services online or drop by and see them at 7131-120th St. in Delta.


Family photo books can be a great way to preserve memories of childhood for both kids and their parents, says Brad Morris of Photo Expert.
