Custom Photos on Canvas Created On-site
Using high-capacity printers, Designs of Distinction can custom-print photos on framed canvases on-site at events, giving guests a memorable piece of artwork as a souvenir. Quantities begin at 50 canvases, and the price drops for larger numbers. The company also offers custom flip books, flip photos (or lenticulars, where photos seem to move when the card is flicked) and a range of photo-etched jewelry. The jewelry line consists of photo-realistic images etched onto pendants, charms and key chains; if ordered in advance, the pieces can be etched with names, dates and logos on the back.

BarStocker iPhone App Speeds Liquor Orders
EJP Events offers its new BarStocker app for iPhones, designed to help event planners quickly and easily calculate liquor orders for events. Users plug in number of guests, length of the event, time of year and their liquor preferences; the app then generates the expected cost of budget or premium brands and the number of units (beer in cases and kegs, wine in bottles and liquor in fifths) required. The estimates are based on EJP's decade of experience in event planning, the company says, and will reduce waste and the cost of over-ordering. The app costs $2.99.
