Imagekind Saturday Giveaway

Imagekind GiveawayIf you're looking for a great last-minute gift I've got something to show you. Imagekind is a photo service--no wait, it's an online art gallery--okay it's a website where you can buy art and make your own photos into framed art.

The concept is easy, at Imagekind you can browse through online art from emerging artists, using their work to make framed pieces for your wall or you can upload your own photos and do the same thing with your own little works of creative genius.

Though there are other sites where you can upload and store your own pictures, Imagekind is different in that once you upload your photos you can select mats and frames for your photos then Imagekind assembles your choices and ships the completed project to your door (or to grandma and grandpa for a gift that they'll love--grandparents can be so hard to shop for).

What is especially nice about the whole arrangement is that if you want to put together a collage of framed pictures--such as the one you see in the upper right--it can be difficult to get the mats and frames that fit your photos. But at Imagekind the need to haul all the kids in the car to go down to the custom framers and stand in line while you wait to select mats and materials is gone. Everything's online and at your fingertips--couldn't be easier.

So for today's Saturday giveaway I have, courtesy of our friends at Imagekind, a chance for one of you to give this slick new service a try and see how you like it. They're offering a collage made with photos of your choice like the one you see above (only with your own photos of course) which is a $40-60 value. Can I say that is terribly reasonable considering what a custom framing job will run these days? Lovely!

Here's how to win:

Before 12 am Monday go to the giveaway entry form on this page and enter your name and email. I will pick one of the names at random, contact the winner via their email and publish the winner's first name and home town in next Tuesday's post. See the bottom of the entry form for more details.

This giveaway is open to all readers--good luck!
