A Montage Of Love If you find it difficult to pick a single picture or you want a more unusual design a montage of love can also be created using the same high quality materials and printing processes. A professional design team works sympathetically with your pictures in order to create a stunning montage of pictures. Again you can add text to the front of the canvas if you wish or you can add a short message to the reverse. Alternatively you could create a personalised Valentines Day card and display just photos on your canvas print. Valentines Cushions Another great use for photos of the two of you together is the Valentines cushion. As well as being able to create your own unique design using photos and pictures a popular design is the Valentines love heart cushion.
This was where young men drew young womens names from a box to commemorate their rite of passage to the god Lupercus. The chooser and chosen would then be paired for one year. These random pairings often led to marriage. The Church of course didnt like the pagan festival so Pope Galasius the bishop of Rome amended this celebration slightly. He filled the box with the names of dead saints instead of girls and allowed both men and women to draw from the box. He believed this would encourage youngsters to copy the ways of the saint for the remainder of the year. On 14th February 496 A.D. Pope Gelasius declared this day to be Saint Valentines Day an official Catholic Holiday. By the early 1700s the United States started celebrating this day of love by swapping love notes and exchanging Valentines gifts for boyfriends girlfriends wives and husbands.
The board is then cut into shape according to the size of puzzle you pick and a display tin is created. While it is standard to include the image on the tin you may also go for the surprise option so that the recipient must finish the puzzle in order to read the message or see the picture that you used. Coasters And Placemats If youre planning a romantic candlelit meal then why not finish the table with customised table settings? Placemats and coasters can be customised with any photos or text in the same way as any other item. You could use a picture of the two of you together and then further personalise it with the date and a brief Valentines message. Gift Boxes And Cards Whether you choose a personalised Valentines gift or not your present can benefit from a photo gift box.
