Well... now's the time!  Join us in Booth 29 at the Lowell Comminuty Expo, Saturday, March 27 from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm... bring your pictures and let us scan them for you while you shop the other 150 local businesses and service organizations!

Your pictures will be scanned and ready for you to pick up when you are finished!  Our new scanning capabilities will take all the stress away for you!   

Your pictures will be scanned for 10 cents per picture (with the purchase of a pre-paid photo book that YOU create... using your newly scanned pictures... or any other pictures you choose!).

Graduation Thank You Cards and Bookmarks

Do you have a graduating senior in your home?  Do you know a graduating senior? Are you planning a celebration open house?  A special dinner? Lots of activities are coming for your senior.  Now is a good time to start thinking about thank-you cards or note cards!
Katie provided our sample.  She choose three of her graduation shots for the front of her 4" x 5.5" postcard.  She created a text box and colored it yellow.  Then she opened another text box and added her name.  The back of her post card has "Thank You" centered at the top.  She has plenty of room to write her thank-yous.  She can either mail the postcard, or enclose it in an envelope.
Katie also created bookmarks.  She plans on handing these out to her guests.  Nice job!

Freeze Frame Publishing's software for cards, post cards, calendars, and posters is every bit as customizable as our photo book software.  Pictures and captions can be added anywhere.  Font, font size, and font color can be customized, too.  There is also plenty of clip art available in the software.

Take Better Photos in 5 Easy Steps

Spring is the perfect time to learn something new. That holds true for the promise of spring, too!

I have been learning how to operate my camera in the hopes of taking better pictures.  Our family has three high school graduations and two weddings to look forward to this spring, summer and fall. Plenty of picture-taking opportunities await!   

This Photos by Jay   blog post might be helpful.  It certainly has all the ingredients I like: not too many tips at once... and the word EASY in the title. With a little practice, Jay's tips will become second nature.

Please visit our web site for more information on our products and services.  You can also sign up to have our blog posts emailed to you.

Enjoy the impending spring season; take lots of pictures!

We welcome your comments and suggestions.


Final Totals for Dam-to-Dam 2010 Fund Raiser


Wow! What a weekend!  Thank you ice fishing participants from Newaygo, Newaygo County and all of West Michigan.  The 2010 Ice Fishing Tournament with proceeds benefiting Big Brothers Big Sisters of Newaygo County was a tremendous success.  The participants between Croton and Hardy Dams raised $9,000 and The Fremont Foundation again matched the funds for a total of $18,000.
Here is a link to the virtual photo book commemorating the event. Look for copies of the book at Croton Bay Trading Post, The American Legion Post 381, Gene's Family Market, the Driftwood Bar and Grill, and Pangburn Properties of Croton.  Books can also be seen at Hilltop Shopping Center at Hardy Dam, and Wisner's Rents Canoes in Newaygo at the river.

If you would like to purchase a copy of this year's book or if you would like to purchase a picture from the book, contact us for details!

See you next year on the ice for the 5th Annual Ice Fishing Tournament!
