We have a new one for you - a full size photo album for your dorm, family room or the perfect family reunion piece to share with the elders. The full size pillow is a body pillow with as many as 12 photographs randomly arranged with a colorful backing. No samples available at this time but you can call for details. Starts @ $75.00 you can add additional photographs or even put a family tree in the center. What a perfect gift. Also available with matching tee shirt. 

I took an older wedding picture of my favorite niece and my mom and actually shot a picture of a photograph in a frame. I reproduced it on this picture pillow below and I know that Mom, and all the family members are going to absolutely, positively love it. 

Retirement pillow - a perfect gift for the co-worker, the boss, a close or log time co-worker. Unlike the retirement watch or the retirement pen, this image will be a conversation piece for a very long time. The front of the pillow reflect your image and the back of the pillow has an image of your retirement badge or the badge you wore up until your retirement. It's great on a coffee mug, a mouse pad and exceptional on the great big retirement pillow.

Priced to promote - A great gift for a great price. Can also purchase with a mud cloth back and embroidery. Make it personal every time. 

PERSONALIZED RETIREMENT PILLOWS = This is the reverse side of the lovely retirement pillow. The retirement date can be included right on the pillow. This was a great marketing tool to promote some other really great purchases but it's a great gift as well.  

We still do jackets, polo shirts, uniform shirts, Tactical uniforms, We have a large catalog of law enforcement attire (no gear). Emblems included when available. 

The picture pillows are a wonderful way to celebrate a memory and share some love and some very special memories. Unlike a photo album a photo pillow sits out on display somewhere all the time. It's decorative and it great to cuddle with. Share your hugs and love share your memories.  

There are so many items in our inventory that we can't share all of them with you. There are numerous photo productions that are personalized and delivered so you don't get to see them all.
