This is a perfect simple gift for grandparents, especially if they live a distance from some of the grandkids. I selected great photos of all the kids and modified them to black and white at a photo reproduction machine at a nearby drugstore. The "mini-print" selection (four per page) was the correct fit for these coasters. Photos slid in easily. Recipient can change out pictures with ease. Worked out beautifully. A great gift that doesn't take up a lot of space in the home.
I bought these as a gift but after seeing them, their quality & how good they look with your favorite personal photos; I'm buying some for myself. ps~ they are loved by the receiver also. She keeps them where everyone can see them even if they don't need to use one as a coaster.
I was pleased with this product over-all; however, a few of mine (I ordered 2 cases as Christmas gifts) were slightly damaged. The damages were not too bad - it was mainly due to poor packaging by the manufacturer. The Styrofoam that was used to contain the items somehow ended up 'glued' to the item itself. I don't think it was literally glued, but it was stuck on there and was very difficult to remove. On the couple that were damaged in this way, the items can be repaired ¿ sanded and touched up w/ black paint or something, but I was embarrassed to give them out in that condition (I didn't open all of the packages before I wrapped them - only 1 from each case). So - I'd give the product a 4 out of 5 stars; mainly due to only a couple of bad apples out of the whole bunch.
You can get the picture in the coaster, but the "bag" that holds the picture is flemsy. They should have used a stiffer plastic piece as the "glass" for the picture. Also, the black holder had a white substance on 2 ends that does not come off; with scrubbing, I got some off, but it mars the total look.
I bought this item for my Mother-in-law. I was so pleased with the way the pictures looked in the frame of the coasters. My friend bought something similar for her Mom. Hers were very hart to assemble. These were very user friendly and easy to change out. I was more than happy with this purchase!
This product is a great gift item for just about anybody. It ease of use makes the even the simplest layman a pro. All you do is find a picture on your comuter, print it out in a 2"x3" form, and then place into the area designated for the picture to go. I added some tape just because I thought it would help the picture stay in the slot, but for the most part, it fits my needs perfectly.
These coasters make a great gift. Note that the box is very heavy, a lot more than I expected so this would not be good to send through the mail. Also note that these coasters cannot be used with cold beverages (only hot) so they cannot be used all of the time. Still, they make a great gift.
this is a really great product for those that like to display their family pictures, i have 5 grandchildren and got 3 sets in all, and have used each set i am even thinking about ordering 4 more sets just to display other pictures, they are in a neat holder and people can look through them at their ease. thank You
I had a good experience ordering and receiving the product, however, the product was broken when I received it. The reason I orded online is because I am short on time. I'll probably just keep it as is instead of taking the time to return it. A little super glue should do the trick.
A set was received last Christmas with family photos fitted by the giver. This is a unique idea that has caused our ordering for use as a similar gift to a spe-cial family. Quite likely, we will again order sets for other friends' gits.
