Engraved Photo Gifts – Add your photo to an engravable gift for fantastic christmas presents for him and her

November 8, 2008

It was only a few years ago that we took pictures on hand held cameras using camera film, which had to be sent away to be processed. Now, we are living in a world where everything can be viewed and digitally processed in seconds using technology.

At one point, in the fairly recent past after polaroid cameras, there were those cameras with film, which to be honest I had almost forgotten about. You couldn’t see the photos you had taken the same day (and in some cases even in the same week) because the film would have to be sent off to a lab and paid for to be processed, before you could actually have the pictures in front of you. Today, with digital cameras and high quality and resolution phone cameras this process is a distant memory, photos can now be viewed instantaneously, deleted and more can be taken. Processing photos has also become much easier; they can be printed in photo booths found in shops, supermarkets, chemists and online to name but a few.

These quality digital images can now be transferred and used to create special presents and unique gifts. The market with photo gifts has now exploded both in shops and on the internet as new gift ideas are available on the market place all the time for consumers to purchase. Types of products include photo engraved gifts, photo t shirts, personalised photo mugs, key rings and a whole load of other presents are available to choose from.

The photo or image is taken from a digital source and engraved onto an engravable gift via an engraving machine, in this case a metazza, for example using carbon rods, which etch into the surface of the metal. The detail achieved via the engraving machine is fantastic. The final product looks like news print and the engraved photos and images look absolutely fantastic engraved on the silver engravable gift surfaces. You can engrave text, as well as company logos creating fabulous, affordable yet premium looking gifts, which make super presents for him and for her as christmas presents and birthday gifts.
