My name is Jill and I started PHOTOMAJIC in 2006 as I wanted to offer people the opportunity to buy a gift, be it for a friend or themselves, which was different and unique (and Australian made). Something that can’t be bought in any store, something that is personalised. A product that says ‘Hey, I really thought about this gift, this is for YOU’.
What can be more personal to a particular person rather than to anyone else? Photographs are high on the list. With this in mind and the wondrous digital technology available, PHOTOMAJIC helps keep memories alive.
As a former art director and graphic designer, I’ve spent my life working with photos, a large part of which was about looking at images and finding the best way to crop the image to tell the story best. What I do now is really no different; of course not everyone’s a professional photographer but the pleasure I get from turning a ‘happy snap’ into a photo cushion or photo canvas is (as an ad says) ‘priceless’. Not to mention the delight of the customer!
A photo on a cushion is a memory that we can hold close, comfort us – how many grandparents live too far away to see the grandkids often and give them a hug? How we miss that beautiful animal that was such a great companion?
A photo memory on a canvas is something we can enjoy looking at every day; ‘hey, we had a fantastic wedding, didn’t we?’, Oh, remember Bali – the water did really look like that!'
I hope you enjoy looking through the site.
