This listing is for a custom set of travertine photo coasters, featuring whatever you would like!
You can display your wedding or engagement photos in a fun, unique way, display photos of your children doing what they love, put together a set of your favorite holiday or vacation memories, or design something completely unique that I can put together into a tile for you!
The example coasters are a set I made for my grandmother featuring the grand kids doing all sorts of things that she wanted to showcase in her home – a formal photo, my cousin the skilled skier, my brother playing soccer, my cousins as the holidays and at their father's band recitals, my graduation, my cousin on the lake, the youngest at the beach. The options are really endless – I just wanted to show some examples while creating a wonderfully unique birthday gift for my grandma!
Ideas of things to consider (but you're certainly not limited to):
Save the date coasters
Baby Pictures and Footprint/Hand print
Sorority Letters/ Mascots/Colors/Prints
A fabric or scrapbook paper pattern you've used in decorating
Bridesmaids or groomsmen gifts
Your trip to the beach
Favorite sayings, song lyrics, or Bible verses
Your own artwork
Your children's artwork
Photos of your kids doing what they love
Photos of your grandkids
Your favorite moments at a sporting event
Holiday specific designs
The sky is the limit! If you can dream it, I can do it!
This listing includes a set of four, six or eight coasters, handmade to showcase your idea! Once you've purchased your coasters, I'll message you about how you would like to send me your images. Photos should be the absolute best resolution possible for the best results – I use high quality photo printing from a shop here in town. The fastest way to get your coasters is by sending high resolution digital files. Photos are sized to fit on and are adhered to ~4" x 4" natural travertine stones. Most photos can be resized and cropped to work, but if you're concerned about if a photo will work well, please let me know. You can opt to send extra options or I can send you previews of the cropped versions before production for your approval. Each coaster is fully backed in cork to protect your surfaces. They are well sealed to ensure long life of use. Coasters are not dishwasher safe but can be wiped clean with a damp cloth as needed. Hot beverages should be avoided to prevent premature aging of the protective layer.
You have the option of sending me your photos digitally or you can have them printed and send them to me if you're more comfortable doing that. Please do not send original hard copies of images as they become a permanent part of the coaster in this process. If you choose to send hard copies, keep in mind that the shipping of your final product will be delayed by the time it takes to receive the photos. Please feel free to contact me prior to your purchase if you have any questions.
Once I have the photos in hand, the tiles generally ship within 1-2 weeks. This time frame can be impacted mildly by inclement weather, as the curing process of the protective layer is slowed by differences in temperature and humidity. I will let you know if I anticipate this being an issue in your production, and we can certainly address it before your purchase if you're concerned. The impact is generally no more than 1-3 days extra. If you need your coasters in a faster time frame, please let me know before purchase so I can make sure we can accommodate your needs before purchase!
Quick Disclaimer: By sending me photos to put on coasters, you're certifying that you have the right to the images being sent. Photos sent will not be shared with others, included in a listing, etc without your consent.
Thanks for shopping!
