With Fathers Day fast approaching I wanted to get something special for my OH from our girls, and I really value gifts that offer the chance to add your own photos with some personalisation to them and Truprint has a wide range of ideas on their website to choose from.
I decided on a special photo of Siobhan and Lara that I took last year when we went out for my 40th birthday, I just love the light in the capture and the fact that the girls are together looking so pretty, it reminds me of a really memorable sunny day and I know that my OH will just love having some photographs to remind him of a special family outing. We joke about these photos of the girls as it is one of the rare occasions that our teen Siobhan has been seen in a dress for years! With that in mind I took lots of photos of her and wanted to have at least one photo on the wall as it is such a rare thing to manage to see her in a dress and looking just beautiful in it too.
Next task after choosing the photo I wanted to use was to decide how I wanted to present the photo, with so many different ideas on the Truprint website I’m not going to lie – it took me quite a while! Once I had decided upon a canvas and a ‘dad mug’ I just had to upload my photo and take some time to arrange it on both the canvas and the mug.
I chose to have the photo above displayed on the Gallery Wrap Photo Canvas and I had to alter the aspect ratio of the photo (in photoshop) to allow for a portrait canvas view and I also saved it in a higher resolution for print. The price of the 16 X 12 Gallery Wrap Photo Canvas is £34.99 and you can opt to have it with a black or white border and it comes with a very handy ready to hang kit as well. There are smaller and larger sizes available, and it is so lovely to have photo’s you love on the wall.
I have a habit of keeping my photo’s on my PC and not getting around to printing them and displaying them to enjoy every day, so I was thrilled when the postman delivered my package and I knew that my OH would really love to see this canvas every day of his two lovely girls.
I also selected the Single Image Photo Mug at £7.99 and I like the fact you can personalise with a loving sentiment, you can also change the font to suit the mug and of course add a special photo too, it’s a really lovely gift from the children and they were particularly thrilled with the results.
I was so happy with the finished products and have hidden them away until Fathers Day and as my OH is away with work he hasn’t even seen me photographing the gifts!
I can’t wait to see his reaction when he get’s his special gifts on Fathers Day, I just know he is going to love them.
