Just think about all of the occasions where you could give your poetry to someone you care about. Imagine your words set in this peaceful mountain design. What a meaningful and lasting gift; perfect for a son or daughter's wedding day, for a wife or husband on an anniversary, for your parents' anniversary, for a friend's birthday, a child's graduation, as a Thank You gift and even as a sympathy gift for someone dealing with the loss of a loved one, etc. Maybe you would like to write an inspirational poem or verse to inspire someone close to you. When you add names and dates to your Poetry Gift it will become a treasured keepsake that your loved one can enjoy reading over and over again. Even better, personalize the poem even more by ordering it with an opening for a favorite photo. If you would like to frame a poem, choose from our modern black wooden frame or contemporary silver metallic frame. (see Frame tab)
The Design Your Own Poem option is also a wonderful way to have a verse designed that is in a language other than English.
Your poetry along with our original photography and a cut-out opening for a favorite photo is a winning combination. It's a perfect keepsake for family members and friends.
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: I Love You, You're the Best!, Happy Anniversary, Happy Birthday, To My Beautiful Wife, To My Wonderful Husband, etc.)
3. Closing Phrase and Your Name(s) (as seen after poem) - Examples: Love Always & Forever, Mary; Love Always, Jim; I Love You, Celine; With Love, Aunt Cindy; Congratulations, The Miller Family; God Bless You, Grandma; 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 10 lines with no more than 15 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 an 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.
