An Imagise personalised clock takes one of your own photographs and turns it into a clock. It is a great way to display your photo memories.
Do you have hard disc drives and CDs that are full of photos? This is one of the problems of the digital age. It is so easy to take lots of photos. It is not so easy to view them. In the days of film photos always got printed and displayed. Now they sit on computers and are not so easy to view.
Fortunately there are plenty of companies out there who can help and Imagise is one of them. They take your photos and turn them into personalised gifts or phone and tablet cases. The range of gifts include your photos on slates, jigsaws, mouse mats and clocks. These would make a nice surprise and a special gift for anyone.
Recently I had the chance to create my own personalised clock from Imagise. I chose a photo of my dog, Eddie and me which was taken when we were on holiday at Wemys Bay. I was holding Eddie as we went on the ferry across to the Isle of Bute. Usually I take most of the photographs so it is rare to find one of me. The final product looks great.
It is easy to create your personalised clock on the Imagise website. First you need to chose clock under the personalised gifts section. When you click the create my design button it brings up the designer. This allows you to upload your photo, add text and the clock face.
The designer is really easy to use. The basic clock face appears on the right and you use the tools on the left to add things to the clock. The upload button allows you to add your photo to the clock face. Once you have done this you can add other things to your design. The background button alters the background colour. Text allows you to add text. Finally you can chose a clock face under the Elements > Shapes menu. You can add different styles of numerals and face designs. When you are happy with your design you can save it and add it to your cart. Imagise then print your clock and ship it to you. Delivery was actually quite fast.
The clock arrives in a cardboard case which gave it some protection. It was easy to remove from the packaging. After taking out the clock I found it was made of glass. If I had read the information on the website properly I would have known this. The glass gives the clock a great finish and the printing on the photo is good quality.
The clock takes one AA battery which you will have to supply. It fits in the mechanism at the back of the clock. Once the battery is in the clock runs silently. There is no loud ticking noise. This is a bonus as I can often hear the ticking of clocks at night and it keeps me awake. The clock can be easily hung on the wall with a picture hook.
I am really happy with my personalised clock and suspect I may be giving one of these as a gift at some point.
