We’ve been scouting out new photo goodies like they’re going out of style, and today we’ve got not one or two, but five new goodies to put a smile on your face.
1. Our new Re-Stickable Decal Photo Frames.
These retro frames are made of high-quality wall decal vinyl. They can be removed and repositioned easily, meaning you can swap in new photos in seconds, or move your frames around on a whim.
They’re way cheaper, and far more fun than a trip to the framer.
Re-Stickable Decal Photo Frames are safe for any kind of wall, and we include 8 in every package. Only $20!
2. Redesigned Magnetic Photo Rope.
Our all-time bestseller, this simple and modern photo hanger consists of a flexible metal wire with a loop on one end. Stick a pushpin or a thumbtack through the loop, and use the included 8 super-strong, super-tiny neodymium magnets to show off photos of virtually any size.
It works everywhere, and you can swap in new photos in a split-second!
Just in time for the holiday season our friend’s sporting a new longer length and five spiffy new colors. As low as $9.33 each!
Watch our fun demo video to see how it works.
3 & 4. The Hoodie and the Scoop are camera cases that like to party.
These stripey neoprene-y, felt-lined cases are made to fit a variety of slimline cameras. (Pocketable, less than 1″ thick.)
They feature belt loops, expandable pockets for memory cards or extra batteries, and a hard EVA core to protect your fragile LCD screen.
Retire that boring black case and carry your new camera in style. Each case is unique and just $12 and $15!
5. The Flickrverse T-shirt from our friends at Flickr.
For the very first time, you can now buy Official Flickr gear online — only from the Photojojo Store!
These tees are the perfect way to show your love for what is quite possibly the world’s best photo-sharing site.
Printed on American Apparel and available in guys and girls sizes. $20!
p.s. Have we gone too commercial? Not quite. But the Photojojo Shop does help put bread on our table, and lets us afford to put together fun photo projects all year long. Plus, we’re quite proud of it. If you’re shopping for fun gifts this holiday season, we hope you’ll give it a look.
You know that Photoshop whiz kid friend of yours? The one that plays his keyboard like a Steinway as he dodges and burns his way to photographic perfection?
That could be you.
When we saw these custom-fitted keyboard skins for Macs*, we knew we had to have ‘em.
The color-coded covers show you all the hard-to-remember shortcuts for your favorite apps and are available for Photoshop, Aperture, Final Cut Pro, Pro Tools, After Effects, and Logic Pro.
You wouldn’t learn how to type with a keyboard with no letters on it.
So why learn key commands without seeing them right on your keys?
Add this to your calendar: Sunday May 11th is Mother’s Day.
Now if you forget you can’t tell your mom it was our fault. Not again.
Since you’ve remembered, you might as well get her something nice.
Of course your mom would say it’s the thought that counts, but after you’ve gotten her lavender bath oil three years in a row, it’s getting harder for her to say that without grinding her teeth.
We’re looking out for your mama’s dental work, so here’s a list of gifts that will secure your position as her favorite child.
Do not under any circumstances share this list with your siblings.

Merry Chrismukkahwanzaa, everybody!
Yeah, we know it’s only April. But we just got brightly colored camera toys. For free. So you tell us, doesn’t that sound like Chrismukkahwanzaa?
Corbis just came out with a line of printable pinhole cameras. There are a bunch of designs by different illustrators, and they’re super-duper fantastico. And free! We just can’t get over it.
Pick up some film, print these babies out, and spread the Chrismukkahwanzaa spirit.

Ever since the Three Amigos brought gifts of gold, frankenstein and maple syrup to the baby Jesus the first Christmas so long ago, mankind has delighted in the swapping of neat stuff with loved ones come this time of year.
Frankenstein and maple syrup might not be on our list this year, but we still put the same careful thought into what gifts we give to our family and friends. Without further ado, here’s our gift-giving guide to what to buy, and why, for the coming holidays….
Our friend Judy runs a one-woman shop making the most beautiful handmade journals we’ve ever seen.
Naturally, when we saw the photographs she used for her covers, we ran straight to her apartment, video camera in hand.
So today we’ve got two special treats for you:
1) A how-to video of Judy showing you how you can make your own perfect-bound journal using two 4×6 photos for the cover, some paper, glue, and a few other tools.
2) Two special edition journals made with pages of sugarcane fiber and reclaimed paper by Judy herself. Created for writers, illustrators, artist and designers, her notebooks have unique features like an inner pocket for looseleaf notes and a spine that opens flat for writing or drawing across the pages. Exclusive designs on the Photojojo Store for a limited time. Buy now

Here’s what we know about our dads: They love fishing, golf, mowing the lawn, and taking naps. Alas, the amphibious golf cart equipped with fish-finder, lawn-mowing blade, and squishy pillow has yet to be perfected. (Get to it, inventors!).
Sorry, Pops. Maybe next year. In the meantime, here are some photorific Father’s Day alternatives from your friends at Photojojo.

With Mother’s Day fast approaching (just 12 days left!), we’ve found two mom-worthy photo goodies we’re really proud of.. and just in the nick of time!
Ever since we introduced our original Mailable Photo Frames, you’ve been asking us for new ways to send photos through the mail. We don’t blame you — there’s just something about the tactile joy of sending (and receiving) real, printed, photos in the mail.
Boy, have we got a treat for you!
Our new Super Premium Mailable Photo Frames are the perfect way to send an extra special photo. These beautiful, inexpensive frames look perfectly at home in your living room, kitchen, or office, yet fold up flat to send through the mail!
Each holds a 4″x6″, features a built-in beveled mat to give your photo a professional look, and has a color-matched fabric ribbon to form a tabletop stand. Every frame also includes an envelope and resealable plastic bag.
With five colorful styles to pick from, we’re fairly taken with these buggers.
Whether you use ‘em around your home, or send a special photo to a friend, we hope you’ll love these classy mailable photo frames as much as we do.
ACME has a reputation for making the highest quality laptop sleeves and bags money can buy, so we were pretty pumped when we found these micro camera cases in their line.
As you’d expect, they cut no corners — Italian leather, a plush and protective interior, even top-of-the-line zippers (YKK Excellaâ„¢, polished and plated metal.)
What really sets ACME apart, however, is the attention to details within details. An example? Those top-of-the-line zippers are paired with a carefully-placed fabric strip that prevents the zipper from touching (read: scratching) your gear, ever.
These guys care about your camera as much as you do.
The Traveler case is built to baby your svelte mini camera (4.15″ x 2.25″ x 1.15″ or smaller) and everything that goes with it: USB cable, spare battery, spare memory card, and manual.
Made with pink pebble-grain leather or black Italian perforated leather, this trim and slick case is a perfect gift for a new camera owner. One of our new favorites.
FYI: Today’s the last day to order Custom Photo Bags for Mother’s Day.
And wouldn’t you know it, we’ve got some great ideas to make your mama feel extra, extra special this Mother’s Day. First up, our Custom Photo Bags made from your photos!
We offer these stylish and elegant bags in 16 different styles, from beach tote to handbag, to messenger bag, laptop sleeve, or clutch.
Simply choose a bag and upload a photo of a pet, a favorite vacation moment, or a childhood memory. Your photo will be permanently printed and baked into high-quality microfiber, which is then turned into a bag (or tote, or laptop sleeve) carefully designed to make all your mom’s friends jealous.
Care to fancy it up? Upgrade to a custom interior color or leather trim.
But hurry, because they’re made-to-order, Wednesday, April 25th (tomorrow!) is the last day to order in time for Mother’s day with standard shipping in the U.S. Choose express shipping and you have until May 1st.
For those of us, however, who can only manage a really nice set of stairs, we have a solution.
Our Etch A Sketch Picture Frame tutorial will show you how to turn an ordinary Etch A Sketch into a kitschy picture frame in no time flat. We’ll even show you how to transform your photos so they’ll look like you spent hours twiddling those white knobs to scratch ‘em out.
Read on to learn how!
p.s. A reminder: We’re looking for awesome photo submissions for an upcoming photo notebook tutorial. Submit your photos to our Flickr group!
