I need to make this into a personalized photo gift. For myself. I just don’t know what I want to do!

Choose the Right App for Your Phone
Your iPhone is equipped with good lenses, which will result in the taking of high quality photos. These photos can easily be used for the creation of personalised mugs. You simply need to get the right iPhone app.

Tips and Ideas for the Creation of Personalized Photo Gifts

Personalized Mugs is an application that speeds up and facilitates the process of photo mug creation. Take a photo of your baby, a party or anything else of emotional significance to you.  The iPhone app comes with an editor that allows for the modification of pictures and the addition of special effects.

There are several possibilities for the design of the mug. A single photo can be placed on the side or you can choose the full-wrap effect. Alternatively, you can add two photos or a picture and text to the side of the mug.

Once the project is completed, you will simply submit it for printing onto a high quality mug. The payment for the souvenir is made through your iPhone and orders placed before 2pm are processed and dispatched during the same day. The mug will be delivered during the next day to an address that you specify in the order.

A Few Additional Tips and Ideas
iPhone apps have really simplified the process of creating personalised items. To achieve excellent results, you will have to spend some time on the selection of the best picture and on editing it correctly. Full-wrap mugs are best for landscape photos and photos that contain a number of different elements.

It is a good idea to add a text message as well. Saying something to the people that the gift is intended for will make the souvenir even more special. It could be a wish, an insider’s joke or a personal statement. Take some time to think about it and make it meaningful.

When you get the idea, take several different photos and try tweaking or adjusting them using the  editor facility. Slight variations in the picture could result in the production of a more attractive mug.

People love personalised souvenirs. Do you want to make your friends and relatives happy? You need a great idea and a high quality iPhone app to achieve professional results. All you have to do is simply come up with a creative concept and send the photo/s off to be professionally transferred onto a personalised souvenir mug.

  • Personalized gifts like these are the best kinds of gifts. Now I want my iPhone back :(
  • Photo gifts are great.. so personalized. My granddaughters gave me a mug for Mother's Day one year with their photo on it.. I love it! So, what iPhone apps are good for photos? :)
  • i never cared much about photo gifts until my littles came along, now I'm addicted! I think mugs are my favorite since I use them all day, every day. I love those little faces on just about anything!! :) Love the suggestion of always including text too. I think it makes it just that much nicer.
  • I loved taking photos and personalized gifts are always much more special, in my opinion. I have a photo mug of the kids from 2 years ago and still use it every single day. :)
