Found a neat website that can use your own photos to ‘produce’ a customized magazine cover: http://www.mycoverpics.com/ It’s reasonably priced – $13 to prepare a jpeg for local printing, or other options for printing and framing. I submitted a couple pictures, magazine name, and headlines I wanted. Within 24 hours, had received back a very realistic looking cover set up. Had a minor typo & it was fixed in about 5 minutes. And the website is based in England – amazing. If you are really handy with a photo editor, you could probably do it yourself, but for the price of $13, hiring the skill was worthwhile.
If you’re looking for that special surprise, and have a few good pictures of your subject, check out the website. Great for birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, weddings.
