10 things you didn’t know you could do with Shutterfly
A photo is not just a photo. It can be so much more than that.
So you’ve got that perfect shot, and you want to immortalize it so you can enjoy it every day. Or maybe you’re looking for a meaningful, personalized gift, and you know a photo creation is the best way to do it.
A photo album or framed picture is always lovely. But here are 10 other things we bet you didn’t know you could do with your photos on Shutterfly.
1. Design the perfect living room.
Transform your wall into an art gallery — with photos printed on wood or canvas. We love the wood prints for a sleek and classy spin on the paper photo print. Don’t limit your prints to photographs, too. You can order custom graphic art, too.Want a wall that looks like it was designed by a professional decorator? Design A Wall makes it super simple. Choose from six different materials (such as metal or wood) and pick from more than 45 different photo arrangements. Now just pick your pics and hang.
Here’s great home decor inspiration by a professional.
2. Accent with a throw pillow.
You might have seen single-photo throw pillows before, but now there are countless options for throw pillows.
This photo grid is a cool way to make a different impact with your images. Add a personal quote or word in the middle for an inspirational pop. View all pillows.
3. Customize your bathroom.
Pick your favorite prints to decorate a custom shower curtain. We love the black and white collage look, but you can also choose a single photo, circles and customized words.
For a unique wedding gift, ditch the monogrammed towels and order the newlyweds a monogrammed shower curtain with a black and white photo of their honeymoon destination instead.
4. Serve up Mom with some love.
Breakfast in bed is always the perfect gift for mom, but why not make it extra special with a customized serving tray? Surprise her with an elegant tray with photos of the ones she love. It’ll warm her heart and provide a memento for her to use for years to come.
5. Give Dad a cool (and practical) gift.
Not sure what to get Dad for Father’s Day or his birthday? These customized growlers from Shutterfly are a level up from the same ol’ personalized photo mug that you gave him last year. Pick your own words and design, or make it a sleek monogram if your Dad’s a simple man.
6. Play more games.
Now, this one is totally unexpected and fun. Turn your favorite photos into a memory game.
This idea is fun for kids, but also an interactive way for people of any age to display their loved ones pics on the coffee table. Pick your favorite background, border and other styles.
7. Wear your family tree.
It’s the new spin on the classic locket: a photo charm bracelet.
Pick a chain or a sleek bangle and adorn it with tiny, round pictures of your children or family. Mix and match with birthstones and other charms to make it your very own. Hang multiple charms on one bangle, or pick one bangle for each charm and layer them on your wrist.
8. Mark your personalized stamp (of style).
It’s nearly as royal as a wax seal. We love the Perfect Expression personalized, self-inking stamps from Shutterfly — a great gift for a new couple or as a housewarming gift.
There are a long list of styles to choose from, from simple to elegant. Pick your own font and size.
9. Light your own flame.
Design a personalized candle to accent a room, cheer up the relatives or offer as a special gift to guests at dinner or a wedding party. The designs are only limited by your creativity, so get snapping and let your photos light your life.
10. Read a bedtime story your kid will never forget.
One fun way to get your kids engaged in books and reading is with a personalized storybook, where they get to go along on the adventure with their favorite characters.
Pick from Sesame Street to Dora and Diego to Sponge Bob. The alphabet book is awesome for getting emerging readers to feel invested in their letters.
