Sometimes we get this question: can you make a Personalized Custom Photo Snow Globe with a black and white photo?
Being the agreeable types we are about Snow Globes, of course we say "yes, we can." However, you will need to make the original photo into a digital file first. If you have a scanner, you can place the original photo carefully on the glass and create a digital file to be mailed to us. If you do not have access to a scanner, check with your local photo development outlet (this could be a drugstore, large grocery or discount store or photo supply store -- anywhere that would develop film or make copies of photos.) These places may offer a service for a reasonable fee to turn the photo into a digital file for you so you can email it to Snow Globe Central.
When designing a custom snow globe with a black and white photo, are there limitations? Not really. Many people choose to go with a black and white marble base, or all-white base, to complement the black and white tones in the photo. But we have other people who have designed a personalized globe with a merlot or verde green base, and used colorful glitter in contrast to the photo. However you want to do it, it's your design for a Snow Globe.
Here's a recent SnowGlobe we did for someone's special birthday celebration. We'd tell you just HOW OLD the lovely lady is today, but that's her secret. A little birdie told us she graduated high school in the early 1950s. Draw your own conclusions.
