Denny Mfg. Adds To Photo Gift Line
The Denny Manufacturing Co., Inc. has added single-sided statues and T-shirts to their current photo gift line. The new statues are mounted to acrylic and then cut out removing the background from the photo. The single-sided statues were added to complement the existing double-mounted statues which totally encase the photo in acrylic. The cost of the single-sided statues are approximately 25 percent less and do not have clear acrylic on the front. They are available in the following sizes: 2x3, 5x7, and 8x10”.

They have also added a “direct-to-garment” printer to their extensive line of equipment. The direct-to-garment printer allows them to print directly on T-shirts and sweatshirts. Unlike the dye sub process that must be printed on 100 percent acrylic, the direct-to-garment printer will allow them to print directly on 100 percent cotton. The custom creations are available in a variety of sizes, ranging from youth to adult.

Contemporary Acrylic Frames
With these acrylic frames from Midwest Photographic Resource Center, pictures are easily placed behind an acrylic face with strong magnets to create a striking, contemporary look. This allows a photographer to easily personalize their studio for different clients or seasons, and showcase his/her latest work. Photographs are easily switched out. Simply place the photo between the two 5x5” pieces of acrylic and the small magnets in each corner will hold it together. There is a large magnet in the frame to hold the block in place.
