Today's side deal provides gratification for years of honing your internal beauty: for $250, DNA 11 will use your genetic code to create one 24''x36'' DNA portrait for one person with a gallery-stretch frame ($569 value). You can also use the $569 value toward more-expensive DNA portraits and pay the difference. This Groupon is not valid for mini, fingerprint, or kiss portraits, and shipping (a $25 flat fee) is not included.
DNA 11 is the leading producer of DNA portraits, a truly personalized form of art based on each patron's unique genetic makeup. The process begins with you choosing your style, color, or additional options for your custom work of art. Additional options such as a duplicate DNA mini portrait ($99), a high-resolution digital download ($50), or the addition of your signature ($50) cost extra. After checkout, you'll wait a few days for a DNA-collection kit and instructions to arrive at your address so you can provide a small genetic sample (painlessly taken with a sterilized cheek swab included in the conveniently mailed kit). When you ship the DNA sample back in a pre-addressed envelope from the kit, an authentic DNA image will be generated in a genetic lab. After the DNA is captured for a perfect, raw digital image, the sample is destroyed.
The image is digitally enhanced and then printed on a canvas incorporating your specified style and color preferences. The four-to-six-week process wraps up when the canvas with your image is framed and shipped off to you. All portraits are prepared at DNA 11's headquarters and lab facility to ensure top-notch quality and attention to detail. For frequently asked questions, see here.
This Groupon is valid for redemption starting on September 21, 2010.
DNA 11 has received extensive media coverage. Their DNA portraits have been featured on the Today Show and The View, as well as displayed in an episode of CSI: NY. Both GQ and Playboy have commissioned portraits, and WIRED magazine and USA Today have written about these custom works of art.
