Photo Area

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 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.

Unless you have permission from the author or poet, please only submit non-copyrighted works.

I ordered two poems to be framed. I love how both of them came out. In fact,I was so pleased with how the first one looked I was inspired to write another poem and have that one framed. And the turn around time was beyond expectations! They were received within about 5 days of my ordering. I would highly recommend them and will use them again in the future.

I loved the picture, but I was disappointed at how small the font ended up being. I realize my poem was long, but I just wish someone from the company would have called or written me to let me know how small the print was going to be. The product delivered quickly, though, so that part was great!

I ordered 4 different prints (Send a Romantic Gift - Your Poem!,Your Poem In Ocean Design, Design A Poem with Red Hearts Border,Inspirational Design for Your Poetry) as part of my proposal plan for my financee. It worked out beautifully as i set up a rose petal trail with each print being a different station ultimately telling the story of our relationship with the last frame asking her to marry me. These gifts are great as they provide a thoughtful and sentimental gift for someone you care about.
