A Custom Photo Journey

Dull and drab are no way to live. In my city where black, brown, and gray are uniform, my goal is to add some color. Most office cubicles come in one color; blah! What started as a desire to decorate my small office cubicle, became my passion to help others do the same. And since most people spend more time in their cubicle than they do at home, it only makes sense to make it feel like home. And the easiest way to make it feel like home? Why putting up pictures, of course! Like many people, I only have so much desk space for pictures frames - gotta keep it profesh and clutter free.

Specializing in custom work, your photos can be turned into Scrabble® thumb tacks and magnets. Plus, due to their small size, people that wonder by won't be able to instantly see your pictures which allows for privacy of your most special moments. Though those passersby will often spot them and say, "Woah! Is that your dog? On a magnet? Where'd that come from?"

And for those that don't want to show off their hot wife/husband, uber cute cat/dog, or adorable child, I offer colorful and oftentimes witty magnet and thumbtack sets.

Finally, for the moments you actually leave cubicle land, you can wear your photos! Women love wearing pendants and guys always think hard about whether they have a french cuff shirt in their closet so they can wear cufflinks.

Additional policies and FAQs
I love my products, and I hope you do, too. That said, sometimes I might slip up, and errors happen. Things like pricing or merchandise descriptions get mixed up, and then I look bad. While that stinks, what’s most important to me is that you’re happy. 

So while I can’t guarantee that all information on the site is always 100% accurate at any given time, if you do notice a mistake, please don’t hesitate to contact me and let me know. Since I can’t guarantee the products for your particular circumstances or purposes, nor the color and very specific size, I can guarantee that I’ll give you the best customer service I can to remedy the situation.

I strive to portray the colors of my jewelry as accurately as possible in natural light. I also name the color of everything as specifically as possible. However, you may not agree that what I consider cobalt to be cobalt. I work real hard to find the most accurate color name for every piece I create and if you disagree, I'll do my best to remedy the situation. All colors will and do vary with individual monitors and are subject to individual opinion. Please take a moment to read descriptions, determine lengths/widths, and approximate sizes.

Object. You can object to (i) my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from me after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.

Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about my use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.
