Printed and framed by Jane DeVere, Marietta, GA as a gift for her daughter, and for herself.

“I took this selfie during one of our daily routines. When I came upon Sworl’s website, I had three photos framed to remember all the happy times with my big white fluff-ball of love.”

“This is a picture of me with my Golden Doodle Josh.  He was nine but you’d have thought he was a puppy. I took this selfie during one of our daily routines. Every morning I’d sit on the steps to put on my shoes and he’d sit beside me with his bottom on the top step and his paws on the next.  He was definitely a poser! When I came upon Sworl’s website, I had three photos framed; one of Josh by the Christmas tree, one of him with my daughter for her room and this one for my bureau to remember all the happy times with my big white fluff-ball of love.”

Printed and framed by Monika Brzeski, Seattle, WA, as a gift for her mother, Barb.

“I tend to just keep photos on my phone and rarely print or frame them, so if it weren’t for Sworl’s ‘one-stop shop’ convenience, my mother wouldn’t have it.”

“I first saw my sister-in-law’s photo of their three Shih Tzus on Facebook. The dogs are siblings and live in Toronto with my brother George and his wife Rae. There’s Lola, the boss of everybody, Custard, the big marshmallow, and easy-breezy Cubby. My mother—their  “Grandma Barb”—was coming to visit me and I decided to use Sworl to frame the photo as a gift for her.  She loved it. She already had my dog photos and now she has one of theirs. I tend to just keep photos on my phone and rarely print or frame them, so if it weren’t for Sworl’s ‘one-stop shop’ convenience, my mother wouldn’t have it. Her litter is now complete!”

“I admit I’m a ‘crazy cat lady’… I have about a thousand photos of what I call the Kittentown Napping Society…I love the ones I’ve had framed.”

The first photo is of my three kittens when I first got them from a cat rescue home. The two orange cats are brothers, and I couldn’t resist the white-faced tabby. I originally named them for ‘True Blood’ characters Bill, Eric and Sookie, but as their personalities emerged, Sookie became Baby Girl, then Christmas Ham (for the way she sits), Bill became Sweet William, and Eric stayed Eric—a.k.a. Handsome Viking. cat photo frame

I have about a thousand photos of what I call the Kittentown Napping Society (my friends sometimes ask, ‘Do you pose your cats while they’re sleeping?’) and the one of them intertwined in their green doughnut bed is still one of my favorites.

The second photo is Sweet William at four or five months stretched out on my blanket-covered legs. He passed away from cancer last year at the early age of three. I love having a few framed photos of him and the others—along with all the ones I Instagram!”

“I used Tangled FX, a photo editing app for iPhone, to create this kind of textured woodcut effect called ‘Fibers’ that I thought would look cool with my hairy dog.”

Printed and framed by Garrett McAuliffe, Seattle, Washington, because “we love our dog.”

 “This is Grover, an 11-year-old German Wirehaired Pointer with a sweet disposition and an insane amount of energy. He’s mellowed a bit with age and I caught him in a restful moment relaxing in our living room. Grover’s crazy about birds, swimming and chasing balls and gets along well with our other dogs Bazzle and Dora. Being in the mobile product business, I have several hundred apps on my iPhone.  I used Tangled FX, a photo editing app for iPhone, to create this kind of textured woodcut effect called ‘Fibers’ that I thought would look cool with my hairy dog. I liked using one app to transform the original shot, then using Sworl to create a beautiful framed photo to appear at my doorstep.” —As told to Will Jackson
