Creating a custom magazine cover for someone you care about can be one of the most fun gifts you make. The creative aspect gives you the ability to highlight exactly what you love about the other person while giving them a gift that will last for years to come. Whether you decide to use it as a unique Valentine’s Day gift or special anniversary, birthday, Mother’s Day or Father’s Day gift, nothing beats the creativity and personalization quite like that of a magazine cover. With a number of holidays around the corner, take a look below at a few tips for creating a magazine cover that anyone would love to receive as a gift.
Choose A Great Photo
If this photo is for someone you care about or are close to, it’s a great idea to include a photo that features both of you. To preserve memories and remind them of you, this is a perfect way to begin creating your cover. Pick an activity you’ve done before, or one of your favorite photos together. With this in place, your recipient will be able to proudly display the magazine cover wherever they’d like and have a reminder of the memory of that day.
Personalize The Headlines
Depending on where you plan on placing the magazine cover, tailor your headlines to make a connection. Let’s say your partner is a huge sports fan; this is a great opportunity to include their favorite player, quote, or even a recent memory of a game you both went to. Further adding to the memory aspect of the magazine cover is what will make it so special and memorable for whomever it is for.
Use It For Anything
We offer several options when ordering including photo prints, frames, canvas prints, posters, tshirts, mugs and mouse pads. But if you are crunched for time, choose the instant download option and the photo file is delivered immediately! This means you can take your now completely custom magazine cover and print and frame it yourself or have it printed locally on anything ranging from t-shirts to coffee mugs. This makes an already custom gift even more individual and gives the person another use for such a great gift.
