|For unique photo projects and gifts beyond the traditional print, online services offer an array of creative ideas. You’ll make a lasting impression when you use yourphotography as the centerpiece in a creative project, from striking canvas prints and coffee-table books to greeting cards and novelty gifts.
Mpix offers a huge selection of specialty photo products and gifts. One of our favorites is their Gallery Wrap, available in sizes from 8x10 all the way up to a stunning 24x36 inches. Your image is printed on canvas and wrapped around a wooden stretcher frame, ready for hanging. Prices start at $55.
In addition to Gallery Wraps, Mpix has several fun photo novelties, including calendars, simulated magazine covers, puzzles and trading cards. One very cool gift, perfect for kids, is the Wall Cling product. Turn a photo into a life-sized print that’s ready to stick on the wall. They’re laser-cut to create a perfect outline of your subject. Prices for Wall Clings start at $40.
Artistic Photo Canvas offers gallery wraps in sizes up to 36x48 inches, as well as other canvas print options, including unmounted canvas prints up to 40x60 inches. One cool feature of APC’s offering is the ability to add artistic effects to an image before printing—they can transform your photo with styles that look like oil painting, acrylic painting, sepia tone and more. In addition to standard sizes, they can do panoramas or any size that fits within a 40x72-inch maximum. Prices start at $27 for an unmounted 8x10.
With the holidays approaching, now is the time to place your order for custom holiday cards using your photography. Bay Photo has a wide variety of greeting cards from which to choose, from the traditional single-sided card to deluxe press-printed, accordion-fold cards that can feature several of your images. Include a portrait of each member of your family for sharing with friends and relatives you don’t see often. Press-printed cards are available in 11 different paper options, including an environmentally friendly, uncoated, recycled paper. Packs of 25 accordion-fold cards start at $44 and go down in price with volume orders.
One of the best ways to memorialize a special occasion or a once-in-a-lifetime adventure is to compile your images into a book. For a special conversation piece that will last a lifetime, PhotoBook Press uses top-quality, 115-pound archival paper to produce their hardcover and softcover books. Hardcover books are available with sewn or perfect bindings; softcover books are perfect-bound only. A selection of decorative end papers and fabric and leather covers, which can be foil-stamped with your title, add sophistication and elegance to these beautiful books, available in a variety of square and rectangular formats from 5x5 inches to as large as 9x12 inches.
Sometimes you may need a large volume of prints to share, quickly and affordably and without tying up your home printer for hours. AdoramaPix has print sizes from wallet size all the way to 24x36 inches and provides discounts for volume orders. This service also offers photo books in sizes up to 12x12 inches. You can choose 26- or 50-page books and create and order your book online. In addition to books and prints, AdoramaPix also offers greeting cards with your photo printed at 4x6 inches and mounted on a 5x7-inch card.
