Between the endless Flickr pools, Instagram feeds and Facebook albums, it's easy to show off our awesome shutterbug skills online. But sometimes it would be nice to display our photos in the non-virtual world as well.
Enter ImageSnap, a clever new way to turn your pictures into ceramic tiles.
The way it works is remarkably easy: You upload any image--photo, drawing, screenshot, whatever--and select the size tile you'd like (all conform to building-industry standards) and your preference of matte or gloss finish. ImageSnap then prints your masterpiece using a special dye-sublimation process that ensures your tiles will withstand the test of time. Finally, you're sent the creation(s) for installation--standard mortar and grout works perfectly. You can even just artfully prop them on a shelf.
We love the idea of using a handful of 2" x 2" Teeny Tiles ($4) for a kitchen backsplash or the Classic 4.25" x 4.25" ($13) for a bathroom wall. Alternately, one particularly arresting 12" x 12" Slab ($35) makes for the ultimate wall statement piece.
Consider it just one more way to showcase your boundless creativity.
