One of the obvious disadvantages, however, is the fact that you’re unable to pick products up and closely inspect them. In addition, on first glance, it may be hard to determine what’s unique about The Christian Gift. How are we different from other gift shops?
Here are a few things that set us apart:
- Our designs are all original and exclusively available here.
- Each piece is individually finished; nothing in the store is mass produced.
- Our artwork is printed on Epson Professional Archival Paper; this exceptional stock yields excellent color reproduction and optimum high-resolution output. Inks are archival quality Epson Ultrachrome K3 ™ technology which provides outstanding color fidelity.
- In addition to premium inks and paper, we use buffered and acid-free museum quality matboard, acid-free foam core backing, and archival quality paper hanging tape. Premium matboard will not yellow over time. It won’t bleed onto the artwork. The bevel cuts will remain vivid white.
- If you choose the Framed and Finished option, we’ll use acrylic glazing for your piece. Acrylic is as transparent as the finest optical glass, with measured light transmission qualities ideally suited for framing. We use it for a number of reasons: it’s distortion free, it has considerable UV protection properties, and it’s much more shatter resistant and lighter than glass. This protects the artwork in transit and reduces shipping costs. All the frames are wood. To finish each piece, a dust cover is applied to provide a final layer of protection, and guards are added to protect the wall. You can view our frames here. If, instead, you opt for “frame ready,” your artwork will be produced using the same premium materials; the same inks, paper, and matboard. It’ll be mounted on archival backing board and placed in a clear, protective sleeve – suitable for presentation to the recipient, or ready for you to slip into the frame of your choosing. Whichever you prefer! Customers who are unsure what type of frame will go best with the décor in the recipient’s home like the polished presentation of our Frame Ready artwork: the clear sleeve doesn’t just protect, it looks good, too.
- We’re one of the few places you can purchase fine-quality, religious-oriented, personalized service appreciation plaques. In addition to our collection of plaques which can be customized for virtually any occasion, we also have collections specifically created for musician appreciation, teacher appreciation, and clergy appreciation.
- We’re one of the few places you can purchase fine-quality, personalized keepsakes to commemorate Clergy Ordination, Clergy Installation, Clergy Ordination Anniversary, and Clergy Retirement.
- When you place an order with The Christian Gift, it’s handled personally from the moment it’s received until it ships.
