Besides hanging a family portrait over the mantel, most folks share and look at photos on the Internet. Digital cameras and social media have made photography even easier than the last technological advance, the "Say cheese!" method, but there's something missing—namely, a sense of occasion. A link to a Facebook image of your grandmother as a young woman will never carry the same weight as holding the photograph itself.
That's where MailPix comes in. Its graphic designers transform digital photos into stunning keepsakes, including gallery-wrapped canvas prints or metallic panels that give snapshots the look of museum-quality photographs. For people who'd like to snuggle with or drink from their photos, MailPix can turn images into high-quality blankets, iPad cases, or coffee mugs.
