  • Novelty Templates or Papers

    My kids brought home class pictures from school that were printed on stickers, keychains, magnets and baseball cards. I have also seen magazine covers with your photo inserted.

    I did a search on the web for these items and came up with zero. I have a few templates in various programs, but nothing that looks really professional. I would like to use these items for fundraisers: school-church-etc.

    Does anyone know where I can get these products?

    I'm not sure of any templates you can buy in a store for that sort of thing but there are several services that make items like that...a quick serch came up with . It looks like they can print photos to t-shirts, coffee mugs, mouse pads, etc...

    You can also try local sign shops or screenprinters. Many of them will have printers in house that can create stickers and magnets or they should also be able to order some of the other items like key chains. You will probably get a much better price, especially if you are ordering in bulk, than if you try to make the items yourself.

      Both at local tech stores here in so cal you can purchase speciality papers, that are magnets, transfers for clothing and stickers etc. The stores are Fry's and Micro Center and even Office something has stuff like that. staples too.
      As for the magazines most people I know have scanned a magazine and replaced wording and photos with their own using photoshop. I don't know about the trading cards, would have to research that one.
      Over all I would think you could just check out some different stores that carry paper for printers, that seems to be where you can find the stuff here.

          Your opinions on a "business"
          by Blacknight
          What do you think the prospects would be for someone doing a business (on the side) that dealt with photos not in a "resurrection" manner but more in a manipulation manner such as my sea pix in the thread "whatever happened to oils??

          Regarding the cleaning of you restrict this to only the gelatin prints or do you extend this to the albumin prints as well? It was my understanding based on a study done by Paul Messier and Timothy Vitale and reported in the Journal of the American Institute for Conservation, 1994 vol....

          Hi All,

          I'm a shopkeeper, not a photographer or retouching expert but I'm in need of some advice and I was told this was the forum to ask.

          I run a small general store in a main street with 10 other stores. We are part of a great little community but that's all about to...

          printing.If I take a small photo perhaps 4x6 and try to print
          it as an 8x10 it comes out blurry and out of focus.

          Lab-style Photo envelopes
          by mbrady
          I was wondering if anyone out there knew where I could get photo envelopes similar to the kind you get along with your prints at your typical photo developers (Kodak, Ritz, etc.)

          I'm not looking for fancy archival type things, just some cheap and easy way to hold some 4x6 photos (numbering...
