Personalized Gifts from BecauseITriedIt

Personalized Gifts for Anyone, Anytime from Because I Tried It

A great tool for those framed prints of what was going on "This Day in History".  I've always loved those Birthday Chronicles you see framed in nurseries.  I filled out my girls' baby books with what was popular, what was in the news, the price of a stamp, the price of a gallon of milk, etc.  But to have it in a newspaper format to print on the paper of your choosing?!  That's just great!

I filled out the order form for my Husband's birthday and it let me choose the headline!  Hahahaha!  Of course I made note of my hairy hubby with "A Bear Child Was Born!" Shhhhh! He hasn't seen it yet ;) They emailed me the file within 24 hours, but it took me a week to print it because I kept forgetting to buy a new ink cartridge for my printer.

There is a personal message from the President at that time with mention of the birth flower within the message.  Music hits from that year, world headlines, celebrities that share that birthday, Academy Awards, prices for certain items, sports, and Chinese Zodiac all combine to make a complete Birthday Chronicle.

Things I would change about this product:  Send as JPEG instead of PDF for more functionality in the way it is printed.  Mine printed small and didn't fit to page.  As an image, this option would have automatically popped up on my printer.  A splash or two of color would make it even more special.  More like a newspaper, with the washed out images.

Overall, these are perfect for a very low- cost, personalized gift for a loved one.  Just print on special paper and frame!
