Snuggle With your Favorite Photographs

By: Gerald Klautz

Just when you think you have seen the limits of custom photography a new trend makes it appearance. Its called the "photo blanket" and it is just what it sounds like. Now you can have any photograph transferred onto a blanket, so you can have it close to your heart every night when you soundly sleep.

Over the past decade or so, the technology has been developed and introduced to the market place to put a photograph on so many common place items. You may have already seen the cakes in pastry shop windows that have edible photographs transferred onto the cakes surface. Also, people have been walking around with photographs on their t-shirts for some time now too.

Photo blankets are very different though, due to the level of technology that goes into their creation. Unlike the photos on t-shirts that is applied with printed on ink, a photo blanket is created by actually weaving the picture into the fabric, so it will never crack or wear out.

The first step in its creation is for the picture is scanned into a computer and then adjusted if it needs it for removing any background images. The the data is then transferred to a computer operated weaving loom that actually weaves the pictures colors into the blanket itself. The finished product has no crusty surfaces and feels just like any normal blanket would feel.

Just think of all the photos that would look so good on a blanket. Your favorite sports or pop star or a special someone in your life. You can even have several photo blankets made for any one of a number of reasons or occasions. The great thing about all of this new photo transfer technology is that as it gets more advanced, as is the case with photo blankets, it also becomes more reasonably priced to have done.
