NameCrosses: Review and Giveaway

hypothesis A print from NameCrosses will be a beautiful and unique gift for the baptism of my new niece, Alyssa Rene (who was born TODAY!).

materials

One print from NameCrosses.com using the name, Alyssa Rene, and an overly excited Aunt ready to meet her new niece!  About the Name Crosses:

Name Crosses are the perfect way to capture the special moments in the lives of those we love.  Our personalized prints are a unique way to acknowledge Baptisms, Weddings, Anniversaries, Birthdays and all of life’s wonderful moments. They are available in a variety of sizes, ready to fit into any frame or precut photo mat.

From a distance, Name Crosses appear to be a decorative art print. Up close, it becomes clear that Name Crosses are created by forming names, dates and/or inspirational quotes into the shape of a cross. Every Name Cross is both personal and unique.”

I am excited to announce that I am an Aunt (again)!  My niece, Alyssa Rene, was born just a few hours prior to writing this post.  I am looking forward to meeting her tomorrow and holding a snuggly newborn baby!

As part of this blog, I am always looking for unique baby gifts to share with my readers, and it just so happened that I was on the hunt for something special for Alyssa a few weeks ago.  I was approached to review a print from NameCrosses.com and thought they looked very neat online.  However, when it actually arrived, I was just speechless!  The online pictures don’t do it justice!

Printed on white 110 lb. coverstock, the cross looks like a work of art from a distance.  But as you get closer, you can see that the artist, Danielle, has cleverly formed the name of the baby (along with dates or quotes) into the shape of a beautiful baptism cross.  I am totally impressed!  Your design is customizable which makes it truly unique.  You can specify the name, date and quote as well as choose from several font options.  There are several sizes available (4×6, 5×7, and 8×10) which come ready to frame.

Alyssa’s cross looks so pretty in a pink mat and white frame!  I cannot wait to give it to her!  I would definitely recommend this product if you are looking for a special way to honor a new baby.

summary

The print I received from NameCrosses.com is truly unique and very beautiful.  At prices ranging from $12-$20, it would be hard to find a more special gift.  NameCrosses.com also creates special occasion and wedding crosses and generally ships your print 24 hours after ordering.  This company also donates a portion of every sale to children’s charities.
