Show off your young artist’s work! With My Masterpiece, original artwork is enlarged and placed into a wooden frame or transformed into a museum-style poster, which ever you choose. Submit original artwork or a favorite photo using the postage-paid envelope provided. Our kit includes art pages and markers, or you can make your item entirely online using our Internet Production drawing and photo tools. The finished masterpiece will be returned in just a few weeks. Your young artist will experience a sense of accomplishment and the entire family can enjoy their professionally reproduced artwork for a lifetime.

If you have chosen to frame your masterpiece, we enlarge the artwork to 11” by 14” and print it onto a plain or simulated canvas background, or for an extra charge, actual canvas. Frames are offered in red, blue, black, or gold leaf, and include a nameplate with the artist name, artwork name and date. The museum-style poster is a large 32” by 24” size, printed on heavy gloss paper, and includes artist name, artwork name and date in your choice of three different exhibit styles. Many other exciting options are offered, such as a plexiglass cover for the frame and replication of photos to appear as oil paintings. Extras of the artwork can be ordered with different options, and are a great way for Mom or Dad to decorate the office. Normal production time is approximately three weeks. Rush service is available. For ages 2 and up.

Make your own personalized plate that will last a lifetime! PlateWorks includes everything you need to make melamine plates, or plastic mugs that are break resistant and dishwasher safe. Special drawing pages and washable markers are included in the kit to make your creation, or simply send in a favorite photo in the postage-paid envelope provided. We can even typeset your name, date or special message around the rim for no extra charge, or choose to have your artwork cover the entire plate. Extra plates, and mugs are available.

Our personalized plates are superior to others because unlike ceramic, they are break resistant and can actually be used every day without the artwork coming off or fading. Unlike with ceramic or other plastic plates, photos can be used instead of a drawing. Extra plates make the perfect personalized gift for parents and grandparents, and the special typeset wording makes them especially useful as gifts for fundraising, teams and classes. Our 12 ounce plates are over twice the weight of similar products and include an attractive raised rim style.
Ages 3 and up.
