"As an artist, I use Shutterfly all the time. This is one of my favorite gifts. The etched glass is a classy touch.I use the portraits I paint and make sure they look good in the preview. For me, I use the wrap around photos (as opposed to multiple photos) and center the face on the glass. It is perfect for abstract portraits. WOW!!"

"I made two glasses - embossed with photos of original art - as a trial for a fundraiser. They looked great were a big hit. We need to make more of them to meet the demand."

"This came out a bit more translucent than I expected, and it's glossier and the colors are more vivid on the inside than the outside, the outside is a little clouded and matte, but I think that makes it classier. I used a high resolution picture (taken with whatever camera Disneyland uses for their PhotoPass people) so I don't know if it would work as well with a cell phone picture, but it might."
