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:
- Ready-to-hang canvas prints
- Soft cover photo books
- Photo mugs
- Greeting cards
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?”
