Something for Everyone

As many of you know I was at the game when Jeter got his 3,000th hit. One of my friends out in the bleachers took a great photograph from right behind me of Jeter rounding the bases. The funny thing about the picture that he took was that you can see my hands in the picture.

How do I know they are my hands you might ask yourself, well... I had just went for a manicure and my nails were bright orange so it was quite obvious. I wanted to put my ticket and commemorative program in a frame with that picture and maybe some others. I thought that would be a nice way to save everything and display some cool stuff.

I found a site called Easy Canvas Prints which takes photographs and puts them on canvas. While I was a little leery about what the picture would lose in quality and clarity in transition, I decided to try out a small 8x10 print. It did end up cropping a little of the left and right of the picture but I centered it the way I wanted it on the site, as well as customizing the thickness of the borders and color.

I was super excited when the package came in the mail partially because it was a very fast turn around and partially because I wanted to see how the picture translated to canvas. I opened up the box and was instantly impressed.






The photo quality was amazing on the canvas and it came out awesome. I picked black borders rather than having the picture wrap the frame and while I am glad I didn't wrap the picture I think I should have chosen a white border. But that's not their fault, I picked it.

I would highly recommend this site if you are thinking of doing something similar to what I did or even if you have a great picture of your children or your family. This would definitely make a great gift for anyone, and you can fully customize the entire thing. Also, if you like their Facebook page I am pretty sure you get a discount on the site.

  2. Orange nail polish? Did you suddenly become a Mets fan? xD See if they can do pinstripes the next time, that would be cool.
