CloseUp Images has been selling Custom Photo Gifts online for many years. These links are up to date. We recently added many new products to offer additional options for our customers. We are in the process of updating the website and will have information and a image of the product posted soon. If you need information about any product please call us at 651 489-0028
Currently only the photo gift items found in our online shop can be ordered online. Because of various options and details needed to create custom signs, banners, awards and most other items we offer. We will not be offering online ordering of these products at this time. We want to get your order correct the first time. Online ordering makes this a challenge for many of our items.
Dye Sublimation printing is the method we use to infuse our image or yours into specially coated products to create your unique photo gift. Using the right combination of sublimation ink, heat and pressure the image has a quality you have to see to believe. Sublimation ink is unique in its ability to convert from a solid to a gas without going through a liquid form. (Just like dry ice.) The conversion is initiated by heat and controlled with pressure and time.
Yes, all the images you see displayed on this site were taken by Sue of CloseUp Images and can be used on any of our products.
Overtime direct sunlight will cause the image printed on aluminum to fad. If you will be using this product outdoors or indoors in direct sunlight contact us regarding a new aluminum product that is resistant to fading.
When we introduce a new products, we sometimes use product images supplied by the manufactures.
