Bulk Photo Ornaments

Posted on June 27th, 2011 by admin

Buying picture ornaments in bulk means you are looking to give a meaningful, personalized gift to lot of friends and family. Whether you are celebrating a wedding a work Christmas party, purchasing bulk photo ornaments is a great way to simplify your gift giving.

Pricing for bulk quantities

Ask for bulk discounts, vendors can gear up to sell in mass quantities easily. And retailers make more money selling larger orders than smaller orders. Some bulk ornaments can cost as little as $1 for the ultra-cheap smaller versions. Expect to pay between $4 to $8 for quantities between 10-100. Larger than that quantity, you nearly have wholesale negotiating power and can bargain the unit price down further.

Where to buy in Bulk

Ask any traditional e-retailer for bulk rates as most will not list bulk picture ornament pricing on their site. On the other extreme, promotional corporate gift wholesalers are accustomed to selling mass quantities and do not list single quantity unit prices. In between the extremes, small quantity gift sites such as Personalization Mall are geared toward the mid-sized quantities for weddings and small parties.

Photo Ornaments for 2010

Posted on August 9th, 2010 by admin

Are you looking to give someone a photo ornament for 2010? What makes this ornament different than the same old picture ornament from 2009? Well, normally the difference is a personalized date written onto the ornament. Some of the stores featured here will “personalize” your ornament with any text you can think of.

An even better way to customize the gift is to make a photo ornament yourself. The internet is full of tutorials for making your own ornaments. Get creative – if you have some construction paper, some elmer’s glue and a picture, you can make one. Take a black felt tip marker and write 2010 on the bottom, and viola, a 2010 photo ornament!

Are Digital Photo Ornaments Too Complex?

Posted on November 15th, 2009 by admin

We have several digital photo ornaments listed on our site. But, are digital ornaments technology overkill? We pull ornaments out once per year. Chances are the battery will dissolve and ruin the ornament during 120 degree summer storage. A regular photo stands a better chance to survive the heat.

With that said, we love the look of flashy rotating photos. A static print is too simple. A digital ornament could hold fifty different photos. This benefit alone is worth the complexity of loading the photos and remembering to take out the battery every year.
