PosterBrain Make Your Child the Star in Their Own Poster Review and Giveaway

Do you have one of those children? The athlete, the dancer, the class clown? A child that loves attention and strives to get it? I have on of those, my youngest son Nick. He wants to be a super star when he grows up. When I spoke with PosterBrain about doing a review you can imagine exactly who I had in mind.

Nick is my athlete and he is crazy for attention so we decided to get him his very own poster for Christmas. He pretty much knew by the size of the present it was a poster but he was expecting Ray Lewis or Michael Vick. I told him it was better then that. It was my favorite baseball player. Of course when he opened it his smile was unmistakable. Surprising to me both the other children now want one. Bud is not an attention getter and I did not expect him to want one but he said he would love one of him in his soccer uniform. My daughter said she would like one in her dance outfit.

I had a fun time trying to make posters and get the exact look I was aiming for.  PosterBrain specializes in photo enlargement and did not have options to embellish or add to my photo so I created my own poster in Photoshop before I uploaded for poster printing. I decided to go with a simple blue textured border with his name down the side. Here is my finished product already up on the wall above his bed:

The whole processing of ordering my poster was actually extremely easy. I simply uploaded my photo. When it was done the system told me if it was a high enough quality to be blown up to such a large proportion. My was listed as “Medium” quality which stated it was good for a small or medium poster and that in a large poster it would be a little fuzzy but look good from a distance. The only problem was the poster sizes were not listed as small, medium, and large. I took the chance that I was ordering medium and hit the button.

The poster did come out just a bit blurry around his face but as you can see really isn’t noticeable unless you are really close up, which no one will be standing on his bed to examine the poster. PosterBrain did in fact follow up my order with questions regarding my thoughts and product quality. I replied to them the same that I have posted here on my blog. I found it very thoughtful to ask how my experience was.

My order was made late December 18th and I received an email December 20th that it had shipped. We received the poster December 24th which was great because I waited so long to order I was not expecting it to be in time for Christmas. So even with a order date of Saturday the 18th I received my poster that next Thursday which I think is awesome turn around considering it is a personalized order.

Pros: The ordering process is very simple and really doesn’t take more then a click of your mouse to upload, make your payment and place your order. The shipping time is excellent from ordering to receiving. The prices are affordable.

Cons: No options to embellish your poster. The quality meter is unclear as to what poster it would work or not work with.

My overall opinion is that I would definitely recommend PosterBrain to anyone looking for a cool gift. You can not get any easier then upload, pick your size, hit order, and then wait for it to arrive.
