Most people want to have a T-shirt printed with a picture of their face but have found that dipping their face in ink and sleeping face down on a shirt only results in inky sinuses and frightening Rorschach patterns. Personalize collectables without the panic with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of digital printing at Advanced Imagewerx in the Masonville Place Mall.
Advanced Imagewerx's bevy of products transform into individualized offerings with the addition of personal photos and custom designs. Lens-jockeys can put pictures to more practical uses than wall-hangings or two-dimensional scarecrows by slapping smiles on mugs ($24.95), puzzles ($15–$30), calendars ($29.95), and more or by organizing them in a 20-page glossy 8"x8" photobook ($29.95+). Spread the word about a local business or membership in a fan club with custom shirts in more than 40 colours ($14–$32 per shirt, depending on the quantity ordered). Advanced Imagewerx's alter ego is a full-service office and printing stop, with everything from document binding ($3.45–$14.95) to studio-quality photo printing ($4.95–$29.95). Wise interfacers leave overseas faxing ($6 per page) to the pros so as to avoid accidentally sending soul-bearing love sonnets to foreign prime ministers.
