Storytelling Gifts to Wear, Mail and Display
Think beyond framing. Your digital photo collage can be transferred to fabric (as photo purses or photo blankets); cardstock (as greeting cards or thank you notes), or plastic (as 3-D photo sculptures).
Imagine taking your custom photo collage to the next level as a featured image on a “Remember Me” coffee table book about your life.
What a great way to show off your photomontage — wearing a photo purse imprinted with your beautiful artwork. Because your photo is embedded into the fibers of the material, the result is a high quality image which won’t fade, peel or rub off and will last for decades. They have a whole line of handmade accessories in leather and wedding satin that are complete head-turners (from messenger bags and iPhone cases, to ties and playing cards).
Imagine – as a token of thanks or as a sympathy note – sending a highly personal piece of artwork composed from your photos. What a generous way to acknowledge simple human kindness. And in terms of holiday cards, Dreamscape cards definitely knock those studio portrait cards right off the mantle piece!
Hang them. Or stand them. My good friend Al Stewart at Photocutouts takes the image file of your photomontage and turns it into an elegant, 3-D photosculpture. Al prints it on a dye-sublimation printer, a technique that not only produces the highest image quality, but also protects the print with a heat-applied clear coat, making it water-resistant and protecting it from UV light damage. They’re dramatic little sculptures, mounted on 3/16″ thick acrylic. Since there are two costs involved: one for the photomontage (paid to Art For Your Sake) and one for the greeting card (paid to Photocutouts), here’s what you do:
- Shop first. Place an order for a photo cutout or POPout (where the subjects are “popped” out from the background) on Photocutouts.com. This gives me a template size for your artwork, and also provides me with an order number.
- Next, go to my Order Now! page to purchase your photomontage. After your photomontage is finalized, upload the image file of your artwork to Photocutouts.com, along with your order number.
