The best Christmas gift from kids is not big, nor expensive. It is heartfelt.
Children love to give gifts, especially ones they are proud of. Now, you can give beautiful gifts that any family member would love to display on their Christmas tree. Your drawings are permanently engraved on our rustic birch ornaments. These unique ornaments capture a moment in time and allow you to relive it every year. You and your children will love looking back and seeing what their younger selves thought of the world, and all of those feelings you had when they were that age will come flooding back. The ability to trigger these feelings year after year is what makes this the best Christmas gift from the kids.
How do we engrave your drawings?
There are some easy things you can do to ensure a quality engraving. Have your kids write on plain white paper with a black sharpie marker. For ornaments, it helps to give the kids an approximate circle to work within, but make it big – we can reduce the size afterwards. Draw the circle lightly in pencil, and let the kids draw in sharpie. Then follow the step below for how to take a perfect photograph.
Don’t worry about errors!
We can erase small blemishes, straighten text, scale drawings to fit the space, and move things around if necessary. If they make a big mistake, just cross it out and try again. Then it will be clear to us what to include and what to leave out.
Now take a great picture and upload it!
Using your phone, take a picture in good light and upload the largest file size possible. Alternatively you can email us. The most important thing to ensure is that there are no shadows. Shadows can obscure the drawing and the detail will be lost. If you’re not sure if you have a good picture or not, send it to us. We will let you know if we need something different.
