Have your ancestor's photo on a T-shirt or other gift items. You can send your photo to be copied and placed on these items (please be sure to send only a good copy and keep the priceless original in a safe place), or if you have a symbol ls2208 or other form of scanner, you can send the file by E-Mail. I can add any text to the mug, such as name, age, where born, etc.
Great for family reunions, birthdays, Mother's Day, Father's Day, Christmas, and even for yourself! One of my favorite things on my desk is my tile (coffee coaster) of a view of Angra, Terceira. Would you be interested in having a coaster of each island of your ancestors?
Now available is a beautiful tile of these islands of the Açores:
Faial, Flores, Graciosa, Pico, S.Jorge, S.Miguel, Terceira
(see them by clicking here)
Perfect for use as a coffee coaster. I'll be making the other islands soon. You can put in your request for your island, too, and I might do it next.
There is no limit to what can be on a shirt, apron, mousepad, etc: photos, graphics, children's art, text. Just get your own idea and let me know.
