This fandom first started out from a comic book written by Robert Kirkman and illustrated by Tony Moore back in 2003. The comic book chronicles the travels of a character named Rick Grimes, his family and other survivors of a zombie apocalypse. 7 Years later, that very comic book was used as the beginning of one of the biggest television series to date called none other than, The Walking Dead. As many TV shows and movies that are based on books go, the show followed the comic books pretty closely for the first season. As the characters developed in the series the TV Show strayed away from the comic books to form its own story line. Around that same time Telltale Games developed a video game series loosely based on the comic book. These three forms of media were the beginning, but definitely not the end, of The Walking Dead Franchise.
The TV show is currently filming their sixth season. The TV channel behind the series, AMC, just released a behind the scenes look at that upcoming season. To get all the fans ready for it we wanted to share all of our walking dead posters that we have available.
If there is a TV show or movie that you’re absolutely obsessed with and find yourself talking about it every second you get, you’re not alone. In fact in the entire world there are people equally obsessed with that same show and annoying their family and friends with constant references that they know nothing about(…yet). For those unaware that they’ve been a part of a group, this phenomenon has been coined as Fandom.
According to Merriam-Webster.com A fandom has two definitions, it is all the fans (as of a sport) and it is also the state or attitude of being a fan. Here at Posterservice we like to cater to the wide range of fandoms out there with Posters!
We’ve compiled our favorite posters from some of the most popular fandoms for your enjoyment. Check them all out and if you stumble upon a fandom you know nothing about, we’ll just go ahead and say you’re welcome now for introducing you to some pretty awesome stuff.
The Walking Dead
Game of Thrones
Attack on Titan

Frame USA’s Specialty Framing Manager on Favorite Hobby Friday
The last time we had favorite hobby Friday we featured our administrative assistant Jill and her awesome guitar making abilities. We’re back again this week for yet another extremely unique hobby. I sat down with the Specialty Framing Manager from our retail store, Jennifer Miller to talk to her about her hobby.
Jennifer what is your, What is your absolute favorite hobby?
My absolute favorite hobby is making felted soaps
Felted Soaps?! Oh this is going to be interesting, when did you first start making them?
I first started making them a few years ago.
How did you even get into making felted soaps, it’s such a unique hobby?
I have been enjoying making wool felted artwork for many years. After finishing pieces, I usually have a tiny bit of wool left. Too little to do anything with; and I’m too much of a pack rat to throw it away. I started brainstorming and looking around for something that I could do with all these little scraps. I came across an article on a crocheting site that the lady was crocheting these little bags that soap would go into. She explained the benefits of encasing soap in bags: decoration, soap savers, great for exfoliation, etc. I was intrigued and went searching. My research came up with some interesting things.Soap holders are a well-established craft dating quite far back. And one of the main ways these encased soaps get made is by using a wet felting technique. Since soap is small, my little scraps can be used to make this fun and colorful craft. People give me an odd look when they get a felted soap bar as a gift, but when they use it; they get hooked!
That is so awesome! How long did I t take you to become a master at it?
I first learned wet felting techniques about 8 years ago.
So you’ve had this capability for quite some time, how many hours a week would you estimate you spend on making these felted soaps?
It depends on if I’m working on a felted sculpture. Currently I am, and I take a few hours to felt the soap after I’ve finished the sculpture. So I usually make a few bars a month. The sculptures are the main focus of every waking hour; the soap happens to be a fantastic “bi-product”.
I would say so! I’m so intrigued by this hobby, what is your favorite part about it?
I love how the colors mingle together and the very unexpected nature of wet felting. Plus the soap gives off wonderful aromas that make my place smell nice.
Oh that is wonderful, what is your least favorite part about it?
When looking for handmade soaps, finding a bar with a funky aroma and it makes you wrinkle up your nose.
Oh that stinks! Pun definitely intended. What has been the most memorable experience with this hobby?
Since I give my felted soaps as a gifts; I love seeing peoples’ smiles; and hearing from them later that they’ve used the soap for either decoration or for cleaning.
That would be a lovely feeling! What is one thing you have learned about yourself through mastering this unique hobby?
Wet felting helps calm me down. It can be very meditative. Picking out soaps for certain people; deciding if the wool will more represent the soap aroma or the person I’m giving it to; or maybe it will just simply be a miss-mash of wool scraps. All the repetitive motions of wet felting process helps me to focus on the motion; how the fibers are intertwining; even how the soap suds squish around my hands. And all of that helps me tune out the rest of the world.
That does sound like a very calming hobby, what is your advice for people who may want to start doing it?
Thank you so much for enlightening our readers and myself about this beautiful art form.

Frame USA’s Administrative Assistant on Favorite Hobby Friday
It’s been quite some time since our last Favorite Hobby Friday but we’re back with such a unique hobby that it makes up for missing a couple of Fridays! Today I spoke with our Administrative Assistant Jill Gugel about her favorite hobby, here’s what she had to say:
Jill, what is your favorite hobby?
My favorite hobby is making Electric guitars and Cigar Box Guitars (cbg)
That is so unique, I’ve never met anyone that had this hobby, how long have you been making the guitars?
A year and a half. The photos are builds that are done from bare wood, mostly mahogany and cherry.
That is fascinating, how did you even start creating the guitars?
I was looking for something new to try, when I found a Stratocaster unfinished electric guitar kit. I was hooked.
You must be pretty much a master by now how long has it taken you to get where you are skill wise?
I am just a hobbyist, to become a Luthier, someone who is a true master of this art, it takes years of study, skill and then apprenticeship. I’ve gotten to where I am now by doing a lot of reading, and watching videos. The best part is there really aren’t any rules especially when making a Cigar Box Guitar.
I’m learning so much about this craft, I wasn’t even aware that there was a name for a master of making guitars! So how many hours would you say you spend on this hobby a week?
I try to spend about 5-8 hours a week working on any aspect of a build. This also includes the reading and watching videos.
So since you spend that many hours on this hobby, a favorite part of it must have emerged, what is it?
I enjoy making used or old guitars “Beautiful” again. Seeking out Cigar boxes, and then shaping the headstocks to mimic popular guitars on the market, but then I add a twist. Then of course string the guitar.
You talk about this hobby with such passion I don’t even know if you will be able to answer this question, but what is your least favorite part about making your guitars?
I am not a fan of soldering. That seems like a skill set all by itself. Due to the colder time of a year, I am limited to only staining the guitars, painting has to wait until the warmer months.
What has been one of your most memorable experience with this hobby?
All the mistakes and mishaps, somehow those projects’ turn out the best, it’s like magic!!
You must have a routine set by now, what is one thing that you have learned about yourself through this hobby?
To be a bit more patient, and learn to love sawdust
I don’t even know where I would begin, what is a piece of advice you have for someone that may want to start doing this?
Just do it!
Thank you so much Jill for taking the time to enlighten me and all of our readers about your favorite hobby!

Get to know Frame USA Employees–Favorite Hobby Friday
Last week on Favorite Hobby Friday Frame USA’s CEO, Daniel Regenold told everyone about his love for Tennis. This week I thought I would introduce myself and tell everyone about my favorite Hobby.
My name is Brooke Skyllingstad and I’m the voice behind the recent blog, and social media posts for Frame USA. I started this position at the end of October and have loved every second of it. The reason? I get to do my favorite hobby almost every day for my job. MY favorite hobby is designing, everything from board games, invitations, flyers and ads, I love it all.
I first started designing sophomore year of high school. Prior to this I had always been interested in art but that was when I really got inspired, and have been doing it ever since. I used photo-editing software to combine images I found on the Internet with song lyrics. There was no end game behind the pieces I was creating then, I just did them to pass the time. When I discovered I could be doing things like that every day as my profession, well I couldn’t pass that up. After four tough years at The University of Dayton I graduated May of 2014 with a Bachelors of Fine art in Graphic Design.
The field of design is a field where you can never become an actual master. The field is too subjective; there are different techniques that emerge in it every single day. I never stop learning things about design, and new techniques that make it more interesting. I would like to think that I have a pretty great talent for digital illustration, most of the designs that I produce have some element of illustration and almost always have typographic elements.
I spend at least 2 plus hours every day designing new pieces, every ad that goes out to our customers for Frame USA or Frame Closeouts is designed by me, every photograph on our Instagram is taken or compiled by me. I have a small freelance business that keeps me busy when I leave work but majority of my design time is spent at Frame USA.
Design has been a huge part of my life for so long that it’s hard to choose just one thing that is my favorite but if I had to choose it would be the exact moment where an idea for a piece enters my brain. From that point on until I hit a road block I am researching experimenting and conveying that idea to the viewers.
My least favorite part of designing coincides with how I go about my work. I’m a perfectionist; I don’t want the world to see something that is less than perfect. For this reason my least favorite part is when an idea in my head doesn’t coincide with the skills I possess, so the final product doesn’t look how I imagined. When I first started college this was a huge factor in my never sleeping, I would spend hours on one tiny part of a piece that wasn’t perfect. However towards the end of college I acquired a new view on how I work. I take the imperfections that only my eyes see and use it as a way to create new ideas that will convey the ultimate goal better.
The memorable experiences that have occurred for me with design all happened during college when I wasn’t considered a ‘professional’. They’re memorable simply because they showed my very loud doubting inner voice that I did in fact have what it took to be successful in design. I remember the exact moment when a book cover I designed became available for purchase on amazon, or when posters that I designed for Frame USA’s Fill The Truck Goes Back-2-School were hanging in store windows around my hometown. The ultimate experience for me though, was having my design chosen by my favorite band, Sick Puppies, to be on their Facebook page. Having millions of people see my work as they went to that page will forever be a highlight of my life.
The biggest thing that I have learned about myself is that the biggest critic of my work is myself. Throughout college I really struggled with doubts no matter how much praise I received for my work. Upon graduating I also learned that no matter how many doubts you have about yourself…. when it has to do with something you love, you will never ever give up.
The one piece of advise that I could give someone if they are interested in picking up a hobby, whether its Graphic Design or bowling is to not give up too soon. You may become frustrated and you may become tired but don’t give up because you never know how much of an impact that hobby can make on your entire life.
I hope this gave you a little bit of an insight into the person behind the blog and the ads of Frame USA. Stay tuned next week for Favorite Hobby Friday!

Last week on Favorite Hobby Friday I talked with our favorite monster drawing customer service rep, Kelley Kombrinck. This week I bring you the Favorite Hobby of our Posterservice Sales rep, David Estep.
David, tell us about your favorite hobby.
My favorite hobby is creating art.
Your position here makes a lot of sense knowing that; when did you first start creating it?
I have been creating art for as long as I can remember!
So then you must have a pretty neat story behind how you got started, tell our readers all about it.
I spent my younger years creating art much like every other kid until father gave me a quill pen and ink set that was my Grandfathers. To a young kid it was ancient but it was so cool at the same time. I was fascinated with the result of the ink on paper and spent years working with nothing but. Fast forward to Art School where I studied advertising design and worked a lot with markers creating mark ups. I fell in love with the bright colors of the markers and they now are a part of everything I create.
I was right, that was a pretty unique story, so how long did it take you to become a master at it?
It took me about a year to develop my own unique style before I was happy with the direction it was going. I was influenced by a wide range of sources—fine artists such as Picasso, and Matisse, more contemporary artists like Andy Warhol, psychedelic artists Alex Gray and Ed Paschke and of course comic books.
So now that you have your style developed, how many hours a week would you estimate you spend on your artwork?
I work on an art project, usually a few at time, almost every day.
So since you do it every day you must have a favorite part, what is it?
Everything from the conceptual to completion. There’s something really cool about each step.
If every part of the process is your favorite, do you even have a least favorite part?
I am not void of having an artist’s block, so when it comes on it can be very frustrating. Sometimes it is difficult to translate my thoughts into images.
Artist’s block is awful, what is some advice for our readers that may want to start creating art?
I truly believe we are all artists, everyone has the ability to create something that expresses a feeling or a thought they may have. So, I say go for it, don’t be afraid of the outcome. Create for yourself first, and the number one idea, enjoy yourself.
So taking your advice, tell us about the most memorable experience with your art.
I have been accepted into a few art shows that are very jury heavy such as Summerfair and the Hyde Park Art Show. I was interviewed in the Citybeat publication and on Channel 9 morning news to promote the 2004 Hyde Park Art Show. It’s really nice to be recognized for my work.
I would say those both would be unforgettable moments; what is one thing you have learned about yourself through mastering art?
There is a release for the voices in my head, my art. Kidding aside, there is some truth to this. I find I have all these artistic ideas and they really start to cry to get out which I feel I must address. Once out, I can move on the next voice/idea.
Art is such a great outlet for working through things!
Thanks so much David for taking the time to tell our readers about your favorite hobby!
Favorite Hobby Friday continues next week as Frame USA‘s CEO, Daniel Regenold, tells all about his favorite hobby!
One of our most popular blog posts to date has been a post about most popular frame sizes We thought we would bring it back as we enter into the holiday season as a resource for you as you purchase picture frames. Enjoy!
Most popular frame sizes
We are often asked what our most popular frame sizes are. It is first important for us to clarify how our sizes work in general. Here is the list of all of the sizes that we consider to be standard frame sizes:
In our experience, these are the most popular and most utilized sizes overall. These sizes cover a wide range of photograph sizes, poster sizes, art print sizes, and many other common sizes we see every day. Our most popular sizes are:
5x7’s are a very popular frame size because so many photographs are printed off in the 5×7 size. 5x7’s are the perfect size to display your photos on a desktop at work, home, or to give a precious memory to someone close to you.
Frames with a smaller molding such as our Corporate Thin series are great but don’t be afraid to go with a wider moulding such as our Bistro Series
Our 8×10 picture frames are top sellers at Frame USA. Once again, 8×10 is a common picture size, but it is also a perfect frame because it includes a mat. Our 8×10 frames come with an off white mat for a 5×7 image, allowing you to mat your 5×7 picture to help highlight your memories.
11×14 frames also include an off white mat but for an 8×10 image. Many of our customers love this size because they can use the frame with the mat, or remove the mat and highlight their 11×14 photographs. Our picture frames all offer this versatility, making Frame USA’s picture frames perfect for any occasion or event.
If you are looking for a medium sized picture frame, the 16×20 size is a great choice. Our 16×20 picture frames include an off white mat for an 11×14 image. This option provides just over 2” of matting on each side of your image. This is a great size picture frame because you can make it a highlight piece on your wall, or part of a mixture with other frames to form a collage on your wall.
Our largest popular size picture frame is our 24 x 36 size. 24 by 36 is the main size that most posters that are sold come in. Therefore if you are looking to frame a poster for a dorm room, your office or house, or to give as a gift, this is the perfect picture frame size for you.
Plaque-mounting your image is another option that would work well, which is basically a way to display an image without a frame. (They do get considerably heavier with size, though!)
Know the size of your fine art but not sure which frame you would like to order? Purchase a sample!
When choosing the best picture frame size for you, always make sure to measure your image first. All of our frame sizes are based on the inside dimensions. Therefore if you have an 8×10 image and do not want to use the mat, you still want to order an 8×10 frame. If you have an 11×14 image and do want to include a mat, it is important to order a larger frame size to accommodate this.
Now the question is what is a custom size frame? A custom size frame here at Frame USA is any size outside of our standard 32 sizes (refer to chart listed above). We can produce almost any size frame your heart can imagine. Our only limitations come into play with the width of the moulding- the thinner the frame, the smaller the maximum size will be.
We hope this article on our most popular frame sizes has provided you with all of the information you may need when ordering our picture frames. If you ever have any other questions, please feel free to contact us at [email protected]. We look forward to hearing from you!
Get to know Frame USA Employees–Favorite Hobby Friday
From what we have heard from our subscribers, last week’s Favorite Hobby Friday was a huge hit! This week we bring you the favorite hobby of one of our customer service representatives, that many of our customers who have purchased picture frames from us may have spoken with, Kelley Kombrinck.
I sat down with Kelley to discuss his favorite hobby and the talent that was first displayed here.
Kelley, we first experienced your talent when you drew a Unicorn and an elephant on a customer’s order, why don’t tell me a bit more about your hobby!
I’m a guy who likes to draw. Mainly charcoal or pencil/pen and ink on paper. Most of my work is done by hand but I’ve begun using digital media—i.e. Photoshop—to color my pictures. My genre of choice is horror art—ghosts and monsters and such—and my style is mainly comic book/fantasy, but I can still bust out a pretty accurate portrait if I need to.
Judging by your level of skill you’ve probably been drawing for a pretty long time; When did you first start?
I have been drawing as far back as I can remember, and it was always monsters, always.
So why did you start drawing monsters at such an early age?
As a kid I just drew because I wanted to be like my older brother who also drew really well. As I got older and realized I was good at it I started drawing to break the ice with the people who sat around me in school because I was kind of weird and awkward and it helped to get people on my side right off the bat.
Most creative people are a little weird, so you’re not alone in that— how long has it taken you to become a master at it?
Like most artists, I’m still mastering it and continue to develop and learn. I will say that I really kicked it into high gear in my early twenties when I started incorporating more realistic human anatomy and working harder to understand light and shadow.
The level of detail in all of your pieces is outstanding, how many hours a week would you estimate you spend drawing?
It depends on the week. Some weeks I don’t draw at all. Other weeks I might put 22 hours in. When I’m working on a hot project I’ll get lost in it.
22 hours, that’s a long time, you must really enjoy it—what’s your favorite part about it?
For me, there’s a moment where a picture is not quite finished, but where I’ve gotten all the main elements penciled in and they look how I want them to look—the picture still has a way to go and there’s a lot of cleanup and smaller details to add — but I see the most important parts and they are staring back at me as if they just stepped through a door out of my imagination. I go on and finish the picture and its great and everything but it’s that moment halfway through that is my favorite.
Wow, that was really poetic, with how you talk about drawing it’s hard to imagine that this question would apply to you but, none the less, what’s your least favorite part about it?
Oh lord it’s when I get a picture to a great place and then I go one step further and it hurts the picture. Sometimes it’s just something that bothers me and no one else really notices but I’ve occasionally ruined a drawing that I’ve put a lot of time and work into by just not letting it rest when it was done. I also hate when I go to ink my pencil drawing and I make a mistake—ink does not forgive.
Like most artists you appear to be your own worst critic! What has been the most memorable experience?
I’ve had several. One of the most memorable was having my work displayed in a black-room art show at a specialty shop back in 2001. My first— and last — exhibition. I drank all the wine and left early with a headache but I did sell one piece.
Sounds like a successful night to me! What is one thing you have learned about yourself through drawing?
I’ve learned that I can really take a critique without getting my feelings too hurt and turn it into development. People are quick to tell you what you’re doing wrong and sometimes it’s just to be snarky but if I can pull something useful out of it and improve my technique then I’m all for it. Some of my biggest jumps in growth have come out of brutally stated critiques.
That is a great ability to have as an artist— what is your advice for people who may want to start drawing?
I think that if you want to start doing it, you probably already are but if you’re wanting to take it to a level where you want to show or sell your art remember this: your style and subject matter is your own, do what you want, but when your technique gets criticized, listen with an open mind. Even if the critic is a jerk, they might be right.
I think that is something we could all use, even those that aren’t artistic—be yourself and stand up for what you believe in!
Thanks so much Kelley for taking the time to answer my questions!
I hope you have enjoyed Favorite Hobby Friday so far! Stay tuned next week for our Posterservice Sales Rep David Estep’s favorite hobby!
Get to know Frame USA Employees–Favorite Hobby Friday
The people who work for Frame USA aren’t just a bunch of drones. We want our customers to know us to be familiar with the people who day in and day out provide you with quality American made picture frames at affordable prices. We thought we would give you an inside look at what our employees do in their spare time. First up: Chas Hall, who is our Director of Sales and our newest employee!
I interviewed Chas about his favorite thing to do when he’s not at work here is that interview.
So Chas, what is it that you enjoy doing on your time off?
I participate in something called The Warhammer 40K/Fantasy, which involves collecting, building, painting, custom creating and gaming with plastic, metal, or resin miniatures.
Impressive! So when did you first start creating the pieces?
I began this hobby at the beginning of January in 2012
So you’ve been doing this for almost 3 years now, how did you get started?
A friend of mine was familiar with my interests for painting and building things. He was also aware of my competitive nature when it comes to playing chess and checkers and quickly realized I could apply each of my interests into one hobby, which I immediately developed a passion for.
That’s a pretty involved friend, How long did it take you to become a master at it?
Because there are so many challenging aspects and areas of the hobby it can be difficult to master all areas. However, if there is a specific aspect that I feel I’ve mastered it would be custom creating projects. For example, I would be taking a kit and fully converting the product in a unique way, which is opposite of what the manufacturer or instructions would suggest.
You’re saying that you start majority of your pieces completely from scratch, that must take up a good chunk of your time, How many hours a week would you estimate you spend?
At least 45 minutes per day in a 7 day period.
So that is roughly about 5.5 hours a week! What is your favorite part about it?
My favorite part about it is custom creating something or converting a product that is not a direct representation of what is included within the kit.
I can tell you’re really passionate about this hobby, with that being said, do you have a least favorite part about it?
The gaming aspect is my least favorite because there are so many rules, terms and Warhammer 40k/fantasy lingo to learn, which can dramatically slow down game play. There are also constant updates within game rules that may affect a player who is not completely familiar with his/her rulebook, which can also delay game time.
That would be difficult to stay up to date with, so what has been the most memorable experience with Warhammer 40k/Fantasy?
Without a doubt that would be winning painting and/or conversion contests in tournament entries!
If you’ve won tournament entries you must be pretty talented, what is your advice for people who may want to start participating in it?
Have patience and have fun! Don’t expect to become great at custom building, painting and/or gaming over night, it takes time. Encourage your friends to participate so that you can continue to learn and grow together!
So since you’ve been doing it for a couple of years now, what is one thing you have learned about yourself through mastering this?
One thing I have learned about myself is that even when it comes to having interest in a hobby, I have a pretty solid ability with attention to detail, specifically with painting schemes, instructions, etc!
Thanks so much Chas for taking the time to answer my questions!
Not only does this allow for our customers to get to know our employees but it allows for our employees to get to know their coworkers on a level that they may have not had the chance to.
If you have any additional questions regarding his Hobby, leave us comment and we’ll get it answered for you!
As your children turn from kids to adults, buying them presents for the holidays or birthdays can become a difficult task. They become far less easy to please and far more expensive to shop for. You may have given up the fight and settled with money, gift cards or clothing (that they will probably end up returning for the money). We thought that we would end this madness and give you a few gift ideas that will guarantee make your kids cry or at least give you a really big hug! The best part about these gifts are you most likely will have almost every one of them, and with the help of Frameusa.com you won’t even have to leave your house this Black Friday because you will be all set for your presents.
1. Frame ticket stubs and program from an event you experienced together.
Almost all kids will attend concerts and/or plays that impacted them greatly in some way. By framing them you are providing your children with someplace to not only protect those precious ticket stubs and play bills but to display them as well. We have three types of shadow box picture frames that you can choose from: Shadow box Boxers, Shadow Box Showcase and Shadow Box Elite. All of which come in our standard sizes. Just like all of our other picture frames our Shadow Box frames are back loading. This will allow for your children to put in their precious ticket stubs and play bills, close up the frame to display and then add more ticket stubs and play bills as they receive them! Only have one particular show that was special? Just frame those elements with Build a Frame
2. Frame your child’s favorite childhood toy
Our picture frames come in variety of depths so they will accommodate everything from a puzzle all the way up to a matchbox car or train. If the toy itself is rather thick I suggest looking at our shadow box picture frames. They range in depth from a little over 1 inch all the way up to 3.5 inches
3. Take a childhood “Blankey” and frame it
You can Use the aforementioned shadow box picture frames and have the blanket sewn onto black foam core. The other option is to unfold the blanket and frame it in a traditional wood frame.
4. Combine your child’s catcher’s mitt or dance shoes with a picture of them in the uniform/costume
Take your child’s equipment and find a photo of them wearing it. Use our Shadow Box Showcase picture frame and combine them for a meaningful gift.
5. Turn your childhood’s art piece into a masterpiece
We can take a copy of your child’s artwork and turn it into a plaque that can be hung on a wall. For more information about the plaque process, click here! A Plaque is a great picture frame alternative that allows for you to protect your pieces but in a simple inexpensive way!
6. Frame a memento from an important life experience
You can use Build a Frame and choose beautiful mats and high quality made in the USA picture frames to turn that moment into a lasting memory.
7. Framed pennies from the birth year of each of your family members
These can be especially wonderful to use as a gift for your grown children, especially those that have new families of their own. Once you have the pennies you can lay them out however you please, in a more artistic way such as in a family tree style, or a simpler layout such as a straight line.
8. Frame a map of your home state or city
If you’re really crafty you can do something spectacular to the map, but for those of you that are like me, all you need is an image of a map, scissors and a made in the USA picture frame.
9. Framed Image of Childhood Home
We suggest turning it into more of an artistic style photographs using an online generators.
10. Frame a family letter
The easiest gift of all is simply writing your child a meaningful letter letting them know how much you love them, and are proud of them and getting it framed
After hearing of the topic of this blog, one of our employee’s shared with us a personal experience that really showed us that these gifts really do mean the world to our children. With approval of this employee we thought we would share her story with you to show that this really is a worthwhile post and is not just an attempt on our part to push our products.
“My senior year of college I was required to go through a portfolio show in which I displayed my portfolio to friends, family and professors. All of the projects in it were an accumulation of my 4 years at school and it was extremely important to me. My mom took the postcard invitation that was sent out about the show and got it framed for me. This simple gift that my mom gave me serves as a daily reminder of my accomplishments and I cherish it deeply.”
Giving your child (or anyone for that matter) a worthwhile gift isn’t about how much you spend or how trendy it is, it’s about coming up with something that makes that person feel cherished. That is why these gifts that we gave you are so effective; they will make your child see that what is important to them is important to you.
