"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 Curved Glas"

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!!"

Grandpa loved it but...
"I ordered a 5x7 glass print of one of my wedding photos for my grandpa. The color came out a bit lighter than imagined but I assumed that was because the photo is printed on a transparent background. My grandpa opened the box and was thrilled - he said he had never seen anything like this in his life! But almost immediately after he asked if there was some kind of stand to place the photo on. He was afraid of knocking it over and having such a beautiful photo shatter everywhere. I immediately saw his point - it does look fairly easy to knock over. I would be leery of having this out if there were little kids around! My husband is going to make a stand for it but my suggestion to Shutterfly is to have an option to include a small wooden or plastic stand to stick the glass print on. I'm sure my grandpa's concern isn't the first. It's a very lovely and unique gift and one would hate to accidentally break it!"

Curved glass print is AWESOME!!
"WOW. The photo curved glass print that I received was soooo beautiful. My daughter was thrilled to receive it on Christmas as it was her photo from her Carribean trip that was used. Although the triangular warning tip came up indicating pixel was too low I continued with the purchase. It was perfect. The way Shutterfly does the process is a mystery to me but the final product was priceless. A gift that was unique artsy personal and beautiful. Would highly recommend this product as it is not that expensive and very beautfiul."
