New Product

I've introduced a new product in my shop!  I'm now offering my prints on an aluminum base. 

The smaller sizes need to be either framed or displayed on a stand, while the larger sizes (starting at 8x10) come with a sawtooth hanger and bumpers to protect your wall.  An additional backer can be added to the back to make it stand off the wall as these are very thin prints.  Multiple prints can also be joined together with jumper rings and then hung from a bar making a wall mural.
 They are available in the following sizes:

They are available in four different finishes:
**gloss white
**matte white
**gloss clear
**matte clear

On the clear finishes, any part of the print that is white will not be printed, thus showing the aluminum through on the print!  These look really great and I've received a lot of great feedback on them!  If you have any questions, feel free to contact me!  The Aluminum prints make great gifts for the hard to shop for person at Christmas.

So, I've decided to expand my line of product.  I've added calendars to my list of items available.  Right now, they are only individual pages that you can clip to your fridge or filing cabinet with magnets, frame them, rest on a holder, or whatever else you can come up with.  There's one page for each month.

I'm also looking at producing wall calendars and desk calendars.  The hunt is on for a good printer!

So, here's just a few of the calendars available:

You can view the full calendars at Crystal Photography.

Also, if I get an order for 5 5x7 calendars by the end of Monday, I will reduce the price on those five to $20!

Want different photos for the calendars, leave me a message and I'll design you one!
