YourCover has a helpful duplication tool. After creating the first magazine cover and saving it, simply click on the "duplicate" link. This will create an exact duplicate of the first magazine cover, just add a new photo of the next team member.

Unique Anniversary Gift is May Cover of the Month

Each month our customers add their personalized magazine covers to our Gallery of Covers. We then add these covers to an album on our Facebook page.  Emails go out and posts get circulated on Facebook letting everyone know that it is time for them to visit that month's album to help us choose the Cover of the Month.  Visitors to our Facebook album then 'like' whichever covers they think are the best. Customers can tag and share their magazine cover design with their friends to try to get as many likes as possible. At the end of the voting period (typically 3 days), we choose the Cover of the Month from among the three fake magazine covers with the most likes.

The May 2013 Cover of the Month is a 6th anniversary gift that Michele K of Sneads Ferry, NC made.  The photo is super cute and fun!  She used our standard "Happy Anniversary" magazine cover template but then personalized it to her occasion by adding the word "Sixth" to the title.  For being chosen as the May Cover of the Month Michele has received a gift code for a free magazine cover print and wood frame (with free shipping too of course).  We're sure you'll think that Michele's design is a fun example of a personalized magazine cover and is a unique and memorable anniversary gift.

Below is a recent review about a 50th birthday magazine cover made by Judy V of Aurora, IL that explains why YourCover is a unique 50th birthday gift idea

"Selecting a gift for the person who has everything is quite difficult, especially if it's a milestone birthday. This was a great idea and Your Cover makes customer service a top priority! I was quite impressed. After sending the payment info, etc., I got e-mails from customer service that the picture was blurry. Most companies would have just made it, I paid for it. They did not and helped me when I sent additional pictures until the quality was top notch. Not many places do that and I would/will definitely use them again!"

How to Make a Photo Gift that Will Thrill

Recently one of our customers decided to make a magazine cover for her granddaughter's birthday.  Rosalie chose the blank make-your-own-title template to create the "Star of the Month" magazine cover. She also chose to create a back cover. In addition to the amazing photo on the front cover, Rosalie included several other great photos on the back cover.  Since the back cover template can accept only two images, she combined six total photos into two images and uploaded these combined photos.  Rosalie chose to purchase the two separate prints of her front/back magazine cover and framed her gift herself.  Below is a photo of Elizabeth with her celebrity moment captured for a lifetime as she stars on her very own personalized magazine cover.  Love this – thanks so much Rosalie for sharing!!
