"About 15 years ago or more my mother said to me, "I know you have a photo of my mother on our last trip to Germany together. I would really like a copy of it. Do you think you could find the negative & make me a copy one day?"
The negative to that picture has been always on my mind but I do not have a clue where it might be. For Xmas my children gave me a film/photo scanner. I gave up on finding that negative & instead scanned a copy of my great grandmother sitting in a nice pose in an armchair. I also found a photo of my great grandmother looking down onto the street below from her apartment window.
I scanned both photos & with a bit of editing brought them back to pretty good quality. Of course if I could find the negative the photos would be better but under the circumstances time is of the essence as Mother's Day is coming up fast.
I ordered the 5 x 7 Curved Glass Print. I put the apartment window shot on one side & the armchair on the other side. Wow!!! Oh, time is off the essence as my mother is almost 93 years old.
Shortly after Mother's Day my husband & I will be going to visit her. She lives in the next province with my sister. My mother had to wait at least 15 years or more for this day & what a day it will be when she finally gets those two photos.
Technology has changed so much. Shutterfly did an AMAZING job with these two photos. Not only will my mother be over the moon to see her favorite photo but the way in which it is presented in that curved glass will make her speechless & it will be something to show her friends.
Oh, by the way my mom is not old. She really will be 93 in September of this year, however, acts like 60. She is so sharp mentally & laughs from morning until night time. She cooks, bakes, gardens, can thread a needle without glasses & is the oldest patient of the local dentist in her town.
Thank you, Shutterfly, from the bottom of my heart for such an amazing product.
I can't wait to see my mother's face when she receives this C"

MEMORIES COME TO LIFE
"I have ordered many curved glass prints and loved them all. The image printed on glass seems to come alive. They make perfect gifts for just about any occasion. Can't think of a nicer way to celebrate a memory. The glass print is perfect for an office or desk where a frame with an easel back might take up too much space. Also looks great on a window sill were the light is allowed to shine through it. Each of my orders were received by the date promised and in perfect condition. With a border or without, black and white or color, all of my prints looked great on the glass. The Shutterfly personalization tool and preview make designing the perfect gift easy. I highly recommend this product!!"

Beautiful Memorial Keepsake
"My mother-in-law recently lost her father. During his final days in hospice she found a lot of comfort in holding his hand. We took a picture of their hands together with no idea in mind as to how to preserve this memory. Just weeks after losing him, she was herself diagnosed with a tumor and is now undergoing treatment. I designed a 7x7 curved glass print using this image and a message about how his hand will always be there to give her strength. Upon opening this gift she stood, sobbing, embracing the photograph. Thank you Shutterfly for creating a unique, high quality product that will be a beautiful memorial for her during this very difficult time."

I love it! Except for..
"All 8 pictures put on this glass print came out great except for one picture, it looks blurry. The resolution was the same as the other pictures. Other than that, this glass print is perfect. My husband gave it to me as an early mother's day present. It compliments my desk perfectly. It's very unique, and you can customize to whatever picture and phrase you want."
