"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!!"

"Love the concept and expect to order more. The only thing I would do next time is choose photos that have a bit more contrast than what I had submitted. Otherwise, very nice."

"The curved glass print is a beautiful product...unfortunately it did come with a little defect on it, but I still have to give it 5 stars as Shutterfly's customer service is exceptional. I was given multiple options for replacement or refund and chose to re-order the same product of which there was no charge and free shipping. A customer service rep was very quick to respond to my complaint and even corresponded with me on a Saturday!
You will be very happy with this product, the quality is amazing."

Great Mother's Day Gift
"This was my Mom's first Mother's Day as a Grandma. I filled it up with pictures of my twin boys and she loved it!
The glass print is of great quality and looks really expensive!
I was very pleased with the price, the quality, and how much she loved the gift. I will be ordering more in the future."
