Personalised prints from EllieBeanPrints – review and giveaway

I’m a strong believer in fate.  When I was 18 I left home (a story for another day) and I needed somewhere to live pronto.  Someone overheard my conversation and put me in touch with her friend who’d been let down on a house share.  The next day I met the girl, who was to become the closest thing I’d ever have to a sister.  We shared a house, ended up working together and spent pretty much all of our social time together.  Over 30 years later and we are still the very best of friends.  My friend A turns 50 at the end of the month, I still can’t quite comprehend how that’s possible, but it’s a fact.  I turned to the personalised prints from EllieBeanPrints to come up with a little something to celebrate her birthday.

I wanted to send her something that would make my friend A smile, a memento of her half century, and yes she’s a year older than me, so I can shout out about her hitting the big 50, knowing I’ve still got a year to get used to the idea.

I decided on The Day You Were Born Personalised Birthday print as I remember her sending my son a newspaper and DVD that were out on the day he was born.  I thought she’d appreciate the twist.

There are a number of different size options available for this print, I opted for the A4 Lustre print.You can also arrange for your print to be framed  It is normally supplied on a Sage or Blue background, my friend has a likely for a particular shade of blue, so I added this in the notes section to see what could be done to make her print even more personal.  Then it was a case of supplying her name, date and place of birth, along with any other special requests. You can even add a special message to your print. This particular print size is available for £12.50. You can also add gift wrapping for £3.50 if you want your print sent directly to someone.

A proof is then emailed to you to check the details before your order is processed. Delivery is also very prompt.  I couldn’t wait to see the finish of the Personalised prints from EllieBeanPrints.

I know she’s going to love her birthday print from EllieBeanPrints.  The paper is a high quality 280gsm weight and the overall finish is very good.  It’s packaged well too. They cover a wide range of ideas, so if you’ve got a new baby arriving, a wedding coming up or even an idea to try something different for Mother’s Day, then it’s definitely worth looking at the range of prints available.  I’m going to become a Great Auntie in September and I can see one of the personalised Nursery prints going down well with my niece.

  1. I’d buy a ‘the day you were born’ print and put the rest towards a vital statistic print, both using my son’s birth and details and they would be a treat for myself to decorate the house.

  2. A print to inspire my neice to achieve her dreams
    Recently moved into her first New home and it can be daunting

  3. I’d love the Chasing Cars – Snow Patrol – Music Lyrics Print, it would be great to go in my bedroom with my blanket with the same words

  4. I would get something nice to hang in the living room for my husband and myself. We’ve just moved into a new house and the walls need decorating 🙂 I’m thinking something to commemorate our love 🙂

  5. I would spend it on something for my husband to mark our 1 year wedding anniversary Or something to mark the birth of our daughter Elena 9 days ago 🙂

  6. I would get a print that says comforting for my son’s room, he’s 10 going on 16 and could do with a reminder everything is okay 🙂

  7. Ive a lot of big birthdays this year so probably use it for my nephews 18th,nieces 21st or my sisters 40th!!expensive time lol

  8. Something for my sister who is 50 this year and lives in America so we don’t see her very often. Think she would enjoy the sentiment.

I'd love to hear from you and try to reply to all comments
