Don't know what to give for a special occasion to a special person? Don't want to spend time walking the malls trying to come up with ideas? Here's an idea...why not put your thoughts and feelings about someone special to you down on paper. We would be happy to take your words and put them into this beautiful ocean design. The poem can be personalized with names and a closing message from you. You can also choose to attach a favorite photo to the design.
Think how special your husband or wife, parents, grandparents, children or friends will feel when you present them with a poem that you wrote specifically for them. Your Poetry Gift will be a Meaningful, Thoughtful, and Lasting Keepsake.
Frame a poem in your favorite 8" x 10" frame or choose from our modern black wooden frame or our sleek silver metallic frame. (see Details and Frame tabs for additional information)
Your Poetry Gift can be designed with or without a cut-out opening next to the poem. Underneath the poem and photo cut-out is a heavy stock paper with the words "Place Photo Here.
There is no need to send us a photo. You or the gift recipient can easily add a photo after the Poetry Gift arrives. The photo is taped on that paper and positioned so that it is in back of the opening. You have the option of attaching a photo before you give the person the gift or the person receiving the gift can easily attach their photo.
The photo opening is approximately 2-1/4" x 3-1/4". This size opening is perfect for a large wallet size photograph, but you can also display the most important part of a larger photo. If you do not want a photo area in your Poetry Gift, choose the No Photo Area option when placing your order.
When you plan to send the Poetry Gift directly to someone and you have a photo you would like displayed in the photo area, we can insert your photo if you e-mail a photo attachment to us at firstname.lastname@example.org after you place your order. Please let us know that you are emailing us your photo when you place your order by typing that information in the "Comment" section of the order form after you enter your email address.
Fill out the personalization questions above to order your Poetry Gift. Examples of answers are listed below.
1. Phrase Above Name(s) (optional) - (Examples: To My Beautiful Wife, My Wonderful Husband, To My Daughter on Her Wedding Day, On Your Baptism Day, In Memory Of, Happy Birthday, Happy 10th Anniversary, etc.)
3. Closing Phrase and Your Name(s) (as seen after poem) - (Examples: All My Love, Shannon; Love You Always & Forever, Steven; All Our Love, Mom & Dad; With Deepest Sympathy, The Oliva Family; etc.)"
7. Please type in your poem (do not use all upper case lettering) - This is where you will type in the poem, verse or sincere thoughts you have written. A Poetry Gifts designer will take the lines of type and design it into the Poetry Gift above making sure that it looks its best.
Please look at the above design in order to determine a suitable poem length. We suggest your poem is no longer than 12 lines with no more than 12 words in each line. There are no set guidelines; this is just a suggestion. If your poem is much longer than the length we are suggesting, the font/type will need to be made smaller to accommodate your entire poem. On the order form, please make sure to type your email address that you check often and phone number in case the designer needs to reach you with any questions. Unless you have permission from the author or poet, please only submit non-copyrighted works.
And there you have it...a meaningful personalized gift for a family member or friend to be read and enjoyed for years to come.
