"Beautiful vivid colors on a nice substantial coaster. Excellent!"
"These turned out way better than expected. They are for gifts, and I do not expect them to be used as "coasters" so much as a memento, so I can't talk to the quality as a "coaster". I will say that the pictures came out way better than I thought- often when I get gifts with pictures, I find that the image I upload is of less quality than I should use- but in this case they came out great. And people complained about losing a bit on the edges- I wasn't sure how much would be lost, but I simply planned for more dead space along the outside. No big deal. Very pleased. I ordered twenty and may do it again for future events!!"
"Prevents water rings on furniture"
"I will be giving them as gifts."
"The quality of the product and photo are fantastic! The boarder colors are beautiful and this was the perfect gift for my mom."
Coasters can do so much more than protecting the surface of your table. With great photos and designs, your white coasters can also be beautiful to look at and great conversation starters. Here are some ideas, including child gifts and funny jokes.
Coasters for Childhood Tea Parties
Here is an idea for coasters you can give as a gift to a child who loves tea parties. Use some stuffed animals dressed in their tea party finest as photo subjects. Place these on coasters to make a set for all future tea parties. If these coasters are gifts your child is giving to a friend, get your child involved in the design process so he or she can feel ownership of this great gift.
Photo coasters are often used in a party setting, so why not use some party pictures? These can range from rowdy, all-night parties to classy, sit-down brunches. Photos can include group shots of you and your friends having fun or posing with glasses raised. Other pictures can be of actual beverages, either alcoholic or kid-friendly. Choose a theme or color so your coasters match.
Your coasters can be funny additions to your table setting by using pictures staged to break the fourth wall. Imagine the shocked and then amused faces of your guests when they begin to place a glass on a coaster where the photo shows someone shielding themselves from the lowering glass. Other ideas include someone reaching out to hold your glass or an open mouth about to drink your beverage.
White coasters and white tea towels work in a variety of settings. Whether cute, classic or playful, these coasters make great gifts and additions to your own decor. You can also rotate your coasters by having multiple sets that suit different occasions. Shutterfly's tools are easy to use and feature a lot of options for you to make coasters that are uniquely yours.
