got a name?

got a name? well, here is a great way to show it off. google leo reynolds and find his blog. he is a photographer and has some fun stuff. like his letters. download some of those and send them to get printed at what ever store you frequent. i like costco. i did adjust the pictures to fit a 4x6 inch picture.
then all you have to do is frame them up. now that is the hard and expensive part. i went to hobby lobby and bought a frame for $15. it was 36" long, 10" wide. i had them custom cut a mat. i was quoted $1-$2 a cut - i thought they meant cut-out. i was way off! the mat cost MORE than the frame! so my suggestion is that you find a pre-cut mat to fit your frame OR go to target and buy the frame with a 'floating' look. meaning that there is no mat but you 'float' the pictures between 2 pieces of glass. you can fit quite a few pictures in there so if your name is long then you won't have to pay $2 a CUT! i am soooo embarrassed that i allowed that.

hope you like leo's stuff. remember it is not to be used for profit!

total cost on one of these was - $37 (ouch!) i learned my lesson.
