And now even photographs are joining in the smallness, thanks to the magic of biaxially oriented thermoplastic polystyrene (that’s Shrinky Dinks to you).
You can print photos on plastic using your inkjet printer, and shrink them down small enough to make into necklaces, fridge magnets, earrings, or practically anything you can think of.
See? Just like that, the world is your bivalve mollusc of the family Ostreidae! *
Convert a cut of corduroy into a cuff for your cup, and keep your coffee calientÃ©!

Carry your cuff to the cafe, and counter the calamity of cold coffee!
Make Sure Nobody Steals Your Joe with a Photo Coffee Cuff
p.s. Sorry about all that- sometimes we’re prone to C-sickness.
p.p.s. The picture-frame coffee cozy was originally designed as a Father’s Day gift, but we figured the ladies would want to get in on it too. Why should dads have all the fun?

Invisible ink, spy cameras, secret passageways… if it’s incognito, we love it.
Our yen for all things surreptitious and sneaky has inspired us to craft this clansdestine camera case out of a hollowed-out book.
It’s highly useful for tricking enemy spies into believing you are a harmless bookworm instead of the undercover photo ninja that you are.
Pull your fedora down, tighten your trenchcoat, and let’s get secretive.
There was a fair lass from New York
p.s. Bjork not mandatory. You can put photos of anyone you want in this postmodern freeform amoeba-shaped bulletin board/picture frame.
Water stains. Ceiling tiles. All those pencils you stuck up there.
So many evils can mar your ceiling. But take heart, photo peeps!
Your ceiling’s not the boss of you.
Cover that water damage with a colorful mural, or slap a collage of fluffy clouds over those grimy ceiling tiles.
All ya need to make it happen are some photo Post-its and a stepstool.
Yessir, everything’s looking up!
p.s. Hey Chicago! Hey Milwaukee! Photojojo readers are gettin’ together to shoot pix. Check out the forum thread for dates/times/mucho bueno info!
Silver dollars, vinyl LPs, Oreos — So many of the best things in life are circle-shaped.
Isn’t it about time your picture collection got with the program?
Circularize your photos and show them off in a urban-chic constellation of modular cardboard rings.
Snappy-lookin’, expandable, and keeps a coupla paper towel rolls out of the landfill. What’s not to like?
We are known far and wide for our love of shiny metal objects.
And some of you may have heard a rumor that we also like photos.

Enter the magnetic bulletin board: huge, affordable, and so easy to make you just won’t believe it.
So here’s the thing: we know you guys are crafty sometimes, but crafty doesn’t necessarily mean girly.
Dainty? No need for it. Lady-like? Not our style.
With a little inkjet-printable canvas and a few minutes of time, you can make yourself a set of badass photo cuffs. Use any photo you want on them and you’ll instantly be the envy of all your friends with their sad, naked little wrists.
Best of all: no sewing required! Read on to find out how…
We hate getting rid of jars. We’re so sure they’ll come in handy someday, but in reality a person can only use so many jelly-jar glasses.
We’re happy to say we’ve finally found a use for our motley collection of pickle jars, soda bottles and assorted glass receptacles: frames!
It’s so simple we can’t believe we didn’t think of it before: just slide a photo into a jar, turn it upside down and display your upcyclin’ genius for all to see.
p.s. Are you a super enthusiastic code juggler who wants to help raise Photojojo’s level of programmatic amazingness? Then you might be the part-time intern we’re lookin’ for!
