"I recently created a mug for my husband's birthday. The Shutterfly site is easy to use (both the website and mobile app) and the mug turned out great. He was very happy with his gift."
"My Mom is going to love it!"
"It turned out very nice."
"Beautiful mug! So impressed with the way it came out. Pictures were beautiful on it."
From selfies to photo shoots, snapshots to portraits, modern life is filled with images. Much of today’s record keeping is done with photos and there are increasing options for viewing, displaying and enjoying your favorite images. Ceramic mugs are the perfect canvas for displaying and enjoying those images that make your life special. They also make great personalized gifts and can be customized to fit both formal and informal occasions. Doting grandparents and friends from your last group vacation will love enjoying their new photo memorabilia.
Preserving Your Pictures
Most people have a camera in their pocket and with continually-improving technology, you can take great photos of any event with your phone. It is important to store and back up your favorite shots properly, but it doesn’t have to be time consuming.
Many websites and apps offer free storage or a large capacity for holding copies of those beloved snapshots. Look for programs that automatically check for new pictures and then back them up in the background. If you like to manually download your photos to a computer or other storage device, set a reminder alarm to be sure you complete this important task often.
It is always a good idea to keep two copies of each picture in case of a digital emergency. Store these backups in separate locations to safeguard your special images. Physical storage devices, like portable hard drives, are simple to connect to a computer via a USB cable and make a great spot to deposit your digital content for safekeeping.
The Perfect Thank You Gift
You likely want to showcase some of your recent images from vacation, parties and more. Displaying pictures in your home can be formal with framless canvas prints or more laid-back with ceramic mugs or personalized pillows. Photo books make the perfect thank you gift for friends or family you may have vacationed with. Be sure to order an extra for your house and enjoy reminiscing for years to come.
