How to Design Personalized Glass Block Gifts
Learn how to design personalized glass block gifts, and make wonderful gifts for everyone on your holiday list!
First: Picking an image
The options for personalizing a glass block gift far exceed the recipient's name. The best kind of personal gift includes something that your recipient is sure to especially appreciate. For example, does your friend have a beloved animal or a favorite phrase or quote? Picking out something very personal can give your gift that added flair.
Second: Pick a size
Now that you have picked an image or group of words, you must decide how big you want it. How do you intend your recipient to use the glass block? Is it intended to function as a beautiful work of art or perhaps as a paperweight? Is it meant for display above the fireplace or hung on the wall? How big do you want the image? If you are etching a photo, keep in mind that it might prove hard to see most details of the image if the glass block is too small.
Third: Submitting your image
When you have picked an image and size, it is important to print out the image before submitting. This allows you to make sure the image is not fuzzy and that it actually fits. Once you have printed and approved all of your images, save them each as an image file (such as a PDF or IMG file), and submit them to the company that you have chosen to create your beautiful, personalized glass block gifts.
Fourth: Presenting your glass block gift
Because glass is delicate, make sure that your gift is wrapped carefully. Perhaps you can include a card that suggests how this gift is best used. Either way, your glass block gifts are sure to last a long time.
