Personalisation of Gifts T Shirts Phone cases etc...

Technology today allows us to create some great products for gifts or just buying for ourselves. I am looking today at one such website tostadora !It looks at first glance like they mostly do T Shirts and the T Shirt is the obvious product that you can get your own design printed on but these guys take it a bit further. I Phone Case in point - pun intended, yes you can make a drawing and get it printed on a case. I think it's a great mothers day gift being of the moment.

So I might just add a few of my favourite designs that you can buy anyway as you may feel that you dont have a design to upload anyway or prefer to have something worked on by a pro designer.

SO lets look at some of my favourite T Shirts

Best Birthday Gifts for Him This Summer

A lot of husbands and boyfriends complain about having to buy their spouse a birthday present. ‘I just don’t know what you like,’ they moan. ‘I really don’t want to end up getting something you won’t want.’ Then there’s that old chestnut – ‘I don’t know what to buy for a woman.’ The only thing that will calm them down is a handwritten list, detailing what gifts you’d like and where he can find them. There, a simple job made even simpler. Ladies - let’s keep this between us, but it can be a right palaver working out what birthday present to buy for the man in your life. You’d never admit it of course, but it’s true. Men can be tricky creatures at the best of times. They might seem straightforward but how can you really know whether he’ll like those personalised cuff links or that mug with ‘World’s Best Lover’ printed on the front? Maybe it’d be easier to get him an Xbox game. Is that cheating? Picking a present your husband, boyfriend or fiancé doesn’t have to be a chore. Here are some of the best gifts on the market right now. Cassette Playlist Print, Betsy Benn £38

This is actually a super cool idea. You simply give the retailer a list of 16 song titles that mean a lot to your partner – they could be songs from your wedding day, songs from his childhood or just tracks that he really loves. A font expert will then lovingly scribe these song titles onto an attractive black and white canvas, featuring 16 different cassette designs, says result is an extremely beautiful, retro canvas print with a very special message. X-Lpase £19.99

If your guy fancies himself as a bit of a filmmaker – why not get give him the opportunity to create his own time lapse films? It’s not like you really have to think that they’re ‘just as good as David Attenborough’s’ – just nod, smile and be encouraging. The X-Lapse camera mount is a rotating tripod that’s suitable for everything from the smallest digital camera, to the largest SLR device. It even works with mobile phones. It does exactly what it says on the tin. Your boyfriend or husband attaches his camera to the X-Lapse mount and sets it to time lapse mode – the gadget will do the rest. At just £19.99, it won’t break the bank either. According to International Business Times journalist Reissa Su, gadgets are some of the best gifts to give to men. Wacky Racers Driving Experience £100

This gift might require you to splash out a little more but it’ll be worth it to see the smile on his face, say the experts at Your man will be taken to a top secret race track to try out some of Britain’s craziest vehicles. There are cars made from toilets, sofas, office chairs, dining room tables and even double beds. The leopard print sofa car that appeared on TV show Top Gear is here too. Refreshments are provided throughout the day and your man will leave with a special Wacky Racers goodie bag. Go on – indulge the child in him. Hammock In A Bag £15.99

What a perfect gift for summer! If you’ve got two trees with low hanging branches in your garden – stick a hammock on them. Even better, set up the hammock on a hot sunny afternoon or evening before your man comes home. Then lead him mysteriously outside where there’s a cold beer and a newspaper waiting right next to his brand new hammock. Plus, it folds neatly away so it won’t get under your feet when summer disappears and it has to come inside. One more thing – don’t forget to send your man a birthday card this year. It doesn’t have to be a staid piece of paper with a boring message on the front. Why not pick and personalise your very own e-card instead? The funnier, the better. He’ll love it if you get a little wicked on him. Author Bio: Jane is editor of a women’s magazine. She recommends Katie’s Cards for a great selection of birthday e-cards and messages. She can be found blogging about family life.

How to create stylish photo books

Since digital photography overtook the old 35mm film format more and more people have found themselves delving deeper into the world of self-publishing and photography. Today, it is possible to go out and take literally thousands of pictures on a digital camera, bring it back home, transfer the photos onto a laptop or home computer, and then set about editing and formatting for a self-published coffee table or smaller photo books. For some, choosing to publish and print online is a way of getting high quality photo books to relatives and friends, while others see it as a way of selling their work. Either way, printing the photo book online is a sure way of getting your work out to the public. 

The first step to getting a photo books printed online is to find a suitable set of photo manipulation and formatting software. Photoshop, by Adobe, has been the vanguard of this style of software for over 20 years, but there are many other alternatives today. Depending on your operating system and computer savvy, you may choose to use the simple photo editor "iPhoto" found standard on every Mac sold. Windows users have access to the Adobe products along with a slew of other wonderful software.

Another avenue open to self-publishers is finding online templates and formats through photo hosting websites. Many of these services include access to book formatting and basic photo editing tools, allowing the book to be hosted, edited and published all from one main website and source. This reduces the hassles of figuring out formatting and set up, as the templates available help guide the photographer straight through the process.

Many online services now offer free proof-copies for eReader style devices and iPads. Once the book is formatted and edited, the product gets uploaded to the tablet where it can be proofed and checked for errors or quality. Once approved, users select the quantity of books they wish to have printed. Once selected the order is placed and the books are printed, bound and shipped to the photographer. Some of the sites even go so far as to assign an ISBN number to the book, allowing it to be sold through eBook seller sites such as Barnes and Noble, Amazon and iBook/iTunes.

As always, any photographer should back up the data throughout the formatting and photo book publishing process. Keep your data secure as well as keep multiple copies to prevent unwanted crashes and data loss. Check to see what the time limit, if any, is in place at the photo hosting site to ensure you maintain the contract terms and understand any termination or loss of data rules for the assigned time period.
