We recently introduced a line of customizable photo smartphone and tablet covers for some of the more popular smartphones and tablet devices on the market. These are new products, and producing them for our customers has been quite an adventure since we've mostly worked with photo blankets previously.
With Mother's Day approaching, our company's lead graphic designer (who's also a published author and illustrator) was looking to create a personalized gift of his own for his mother. He set his sights on the Faux Suede Photo Notebook Case for the iPad 2, 3 & 4. In our designer's case, his mother happens to be a child at heart, and loves books for younger readers. Our designer recently published the first in a series of novels; which his mother happens to be the first recorded fan of. Using our printing technology, he put together artwork to create a customized iPad case.
You can see a view of the front here, as well as a close-up of the item's texture.
The image goes over the entire cover, wrapping around from the front to the back.
The plastic snap-in case that holds the iPad inside the cover is rotatable. Velcro strips inside the allow the case to be rotated and secured in an upright position, allowing the cover to double as a stand for your iPad.
Hopefully this is a Mother's Day gift our designer's mom will appreciate.
Sometimes a photo blanket or pillow is a nice thought when you're looking to buy a gift for Mother's Day. However, we do understand that some people not have a photo readily available, or may not want a photo at all for their item. That is why for mother's day we've introduced several items that do not require you to submit a photo that your mother is sure to love...
You're likely familiar with our Jacquard Woven, Tapestry-Styled Photo Blankets. The process used to create them employs specialized technology that creates a pattern to be used by our weavers to convert your photos into high-quality woven blankets
Weaving is a method of fabric production in the textile arts that dates back very far throughout human history. Archeologists have found evidence that it dates back as far as the Neolithic Era. In general, weaving involves using a loom to interlace two sets of threads at right angles to each other: the warp which runs longitudinally and the weft that crosses it.
What is Dye-Sublimation Printing?
Dye-Sublimation printing is a process that employs heat to transfer dye onto a medium (e.i.: fabric, plastic). Our printer begins by printing a reverse of the desired image onto a heat resistant transfer paper, which is then transferred onto fabric (typically polyester or a hybrid of polyester an another fabric) in a heat press operating at a temperature around 180 to 210 C (375 F). Under high temperature and pressure, the dye turns into a gas and permeates the fabric and then solidifies into its fibers. The fabric is permanently dyed so it can be washed without damaging the quality of the image.
The dye does not build up on the fabric, and the final image will not peel or fade. Likewise, a wider variety of tones and colors are possible through this process that aren't available in others.
Just in time for Halloween, we introduce our Gothic designer throw. For the Goth in your family, or just for the goth in us all! This design is available on all sizes and fabrics we have in concern to photo blankets (we can also print it onto other products, if you ask nicely)
With the Holiday season coming up, our design team made the snap decision to introduce a personalized product that's sure to become part of your family's yearly ritual: personalized photo stockings for the Holidays!
Now you can take your favorite photos, art, or designs and have them printed onto a high quality stocking for you and/or your love ones. They're available in a number of different fabrics and linings, customizable to suit your needs and desires.
It goes without saying that a jewelry box is a lavish gift, but these get both lavish and personal. So, this isn't just your run of the mill fancy gift you'd find at an antique shop - rather, it's a unique gift personalized for the person in mind...
