Back-to-School: Dorm Room Art Using Facebook and Twitter
By Audrey van Petegem, Senior Editor
Is your teen going off to college in another city or state? Are they already missing there 800 closest friends? Here are some great wall art that will keep you (if you are friends with them on Twitter or Facebook) and their friends close.
Social Print Studio can make a 20″ x 40″ print of all their friend’s and family’s profile pictures (you may want to make sure they still really like them all). Simply choose your format, connect with Facebook (you will need to know their password or sneak onto an unattended computer, but you did not hear that here… ) and pay using secured Paypal (you do not need a PayPal account). Social Print Studio will download all the friends’ photos onto high quality photo paper and ship you the poster. Go to Social Print Studio and order one for only $25.00.
Art Buzz is based in the Netherlands and creates an artist’s impression of a Facebook or Twitter profile picture by collecting all the social media messages and generating them onto the picture. You can choose either a light or dark color scheme. Once completed, a download of the large jpg image file will be emailed to you. This can be taken to your local printer to print (they will know what to do). Depending on the size the cost is between $20.00 to $70.00 for a 17″ x 12″ to 39″ x 39″ (plus the cost of your local printer).
So, when your teen starts to miss home, they can see all the friendly faces of their friends and family or all the messages you and their friends have posted on their page. You may want to request being added as a friend and putting a lot of “I love you” messages on their profile page before placing the order!
