Printed and framed by Christie Melby, Seattle, WA, for her sister and herself as travel memories.

“I had photos printed and framed by Sworl for my sister and myself. Nikki has hers in her sorority room at the University of Oregon. Like me, she’s a Kappa Kappa Gamma, so we’re double sisters!”

 

travel memories

“My family took a really fun trip to London in early September, which was when my mom took this picture.

“It was my sister’s first time in London, and this was actually taken on our first night there. We’d been to a football match earlier in the day and saw West Ham lose to Southampton. Our dad’s a huge fan of the English Premier League in general so we grew up watching all the games. Then we went to the South Bank for dinner at Wahaca, one of my favorites. I love the whole area because it’s full of character, lively and fun. The riverfront promenade, also called The Queen’s Walk, is lined with white lights. We ended up walking across the Westminster Bridge and back over to Parliament—a very full first day!

Printed and framed by Maddie Beck, Seattle, WA, to remind her of a fun festival.

“The photo brings back memories of a really fun time. I framed two copies of the photo with Sworl, one for my apartment and one for my sister, who has hers in her house at college.”

“This is a picture of my sister Cece and me during the Sasquatch music festival near George, Washington on the Columbia Gorge. I’m on the right. We camped with our friends for the entire Memorial Day weekend and saw a whole bunch of acts including Kid Cudi, Foster the People, and Cage the Elephant. I’m pretty sure this photo was taken by my friend Julia Kuhn during the set by The Naked and the Famous, an LA-based band originally from New Zealand.

“It was the first time at Sasquatch for both of us, and a great excuse to get together. I just graduated from the University of Washington and my sister—she’s two years younger—is at the University of Colorado in Boulder. We love to spend time together, alone or with our family, whenever possible.

 “Since we live far apart, I don’t get to see Madi nearly as often as I’d like to, but I love having this Sworl framed photo of us to look at.”

“Here I am with my youngest sister, Madison. She turned one in January —we’re 25 years apart! My dad remarried and now he and my stepmom have Madi and Angela, who’s three. Madi is quite a funny and feisty little girl and loves to compete with Angela.

“The photo was taken last August at my grandma’s surprise 80th birthday party in my hometown, Payette, Idaho. Madi’s half-Filipino and I’m half-Mexican but there’s a definite family resemblance. We both have one dimple, on different sides, along with our grandma’s chin, so we tried to take a picture that showed those features. We took four or five shots—it’s hard to make a baby hold still—but she was laughing and happy the whole time. Since we live far apart, I don’t get to see Madi nearly as often as I’d like to, but I love having this Sworl framed photo of us to look at.”

Printed and framed by Maria Alvord, Seattle, WA, to send to relatives nationwide.

 “It’s so easy to change sizes and styles, switch out addresses and add personal messages.”

gifts for family “My girls Sophia and Ava were dressed up for Mother’s Day brunch and looked so grown up sitting on my Fiat. I realized I hadn’t sent any nice photos to the grandparents and great-grandmothers in a long time, mainly because of the rigmarole involved—printing, framing, wrapping, mailing. It had been on my to-do list for literally years.

Sworl made it so easy and convenient!

I sent the same photo to two great-grandmothers in Boise, my father-in-law in South Carolina, my dad’s wife and several other people. I chose white frames for some, black and brown for others, in a range of sizes. It’s so easy to change sizes and styles, switch out addresses and add personal messages. And everyone loved the photos!”
