Silly Address Label Maker
Custom Send-To Address Labels:
Ever wanted to send a letter to someone where the envelope stands out from the rest of the postal mail? How about putting the address you are sending to in a funny image from www.ImageGenerator.org to make a unique looking packaging never seen before! Make a funny parody personalized envelope for your letters.
These printable image templates can be printed at home/office to envelopes using standard Inkjet, Bubblejet or laser printers (do not use your photo printers that use heat dye sublimation technology)! They are free to create (you can even buy your creations as custom made magnets).
If the postoffice refuses to send (we have not had this happen yet to us) your letter(s), they must (by law) return the mail to sender so you know your mail never went through. There are currently no rules that stop you from using Web 2.0 Image Generators to create customized /personalized images to print on envelopes.
Here is an example:
You can find lots of on-line programs to make these kind of images at www.ImageGenerator.org! In testing many of these images, we have had 1 postcard (out of 10) that was lost in the mailstream (or post office), but cannot reproduce the problem consistently. Upon resending lost cards, they always get delivered so it seems it's safe to use this technique for mailing letters or postcards.

Custom Magnet Gifts, Buy It Now PayPal
With the Christmas shopping/holiday season upon us yet again, I have recieved several emails over the last few months requesting a list of the image generators that are able to be made into magnets (some aren't such as the animated GIF glitter maker, only about 50% of the image generators can be made into magnets) and seems to be a popular and common question. I guess making a magnet customizing list will save time for those who are just wanting to personalize some quick gifts for Xmas (Christmas presents from Santa Claus).
My response was to set up a page on www.CustomizeMagnets.com for users to visit to see the magnet customizing template list (more custom magnets product information).
These custom fridge magnets are great fun as gifts (customize your own personal message for a unique gift) for everyone, even kids! Here is a sample where a a mother used personalized name magnets to give each child at a birthday party (and invitations were ordered):
Magnets are constructed out of 35mil thick magnetic material, these are flexible yet not easy to crease like cheaper magnet sheets bought from local office stores (sheet of 5-10 for kids, usually less than 10mil thick). We won top 10 site award for best site of 2004, see HERE (hehe). Your image is printed to high quality semi gloss Kodak photography paper and then transferred to the magnet where they are cut to size (approximately 3"X4") (maintains ratio aspect, images look much clearer at smaller sizes, sometimes viewing your creation on our web page distorts the clarity). Customized images you created online are taken to Walmart photo center where we use the Kodak digital printing terminal (creates high quality Kodak semi-gloss photographs) to print your personalized images. We can also create postcards, stickers, greeting cards and more to come (not all customizable image generators allow purchases as some images are not good enough quality or we have been told we cannot use for products).
PS: Also setting up a list of Web 2.0 software applications on www.web20appz.com, you will be able to submit Web 2.0 tools by December the 1st if all goes well. The layout will be similar to our www.ComedySearchEngine.com.
