Actually, it didn't come in the mail, but rather FedEx. I ordered this Sunday evening and my order shipped the very next day! Ever since I saw a a post on Donna Boucher's blog, Quiet Life, I have wanted to have one of these printed. It's called a Standout and I ordered it from Mpix.com, an online digital imaging lab. Can you imagine how cool your own photographs would look mounted like this? This is an 8 x 12 print that's mounted on 1" x 1 1/2" Gatorfoam. It's then sealed with your choice of either a smooth white or a textured black band. It wasn't terribly expensive, either. Mpix offers several different mounting options for your prints that include traditional frames, but the one I really want to try is the gallery wrap. Your photo is printed on canvas and then wrapped around a stretcher frame. I just have to think of something really worthy to warrant spending that kind of money. While my friends were visiting this past weekend, we discussed decorating a little bit. Karen was ready to start moving furniture, but she's always wanting to move furniture. She and Adrienne encouraged me to try having one printed. I just wanted to pass this cool idea along to you. Have fun with it!
