Sometimes no matter how long you stay up on Christmas Eve, you just can’t stake awake long enough to snap a picture of that sly old St. Nick. If you’ve always wanted a little extra proof that Santa really makes a stop at your house, iCaughtSanta.com is just perfect to make it happen. For those of us who like to keep the magic of Santa Claus alive and well for our children, there couldn’t be anything better then photographic evidence! Your child’s face will light up with wonder and surprise when they find a picture of Santa in front of their own tree!
Last year Pie and Mr.T. were in awe of the photo Santa left us! He must have been tired after eating all of our cookies because he was taking a nap on the couch just as cozy as could be. This year I believe Santa just might get caught by a sneaky Elf Cam as he’s about to put the gifts under the tree. Creating your own photo (to help Santa out) is extremely simple and fun. Take a picture of your tree, or the spot you want Santa to be shown in, then upload it to the site.
Then use the tools to rotate, flip, brighten and darken the photo. Choose a Santa to use from the 20 great poses available. I like to adjust the brightness and color of my Santa to get a good match to the background photo. This needs to look real folks! My kids would never believe it if Santa was bright as can be against a dark background, or if Santa looked like he was standing on top of the tree!
You can really make it look good if you fiddle with the tools for a minute or two. you can also choose from several border styles, there are some cute ones with a Merry Christmas message and plain colored ones too, they look great. Last year I chose a red border with message, this year I left it without, the choice is yours.
In case you’re wondering, you can also personalize photos for other occasions with The Easter Bunny, Tooth Fairy, and Cupid. I haven’t tried them but they do look like they would be just as adorable as the Santa Claus one.
The image that you create is a digital product, meaning once created and paid for you can then download the high resolution file to your computer to print out, send in emails, use print-to-store feature and more. You can also easily share it with one-click photo-sharing via email, Facebook, Twitter and 30 other sites, or choose to order prints in several sizes, and photo gifts directly from the order confirmation page. Also, I know absolutely zero about iPhones but I’m told that if you “Search: iCaughtSanta in the iphone app store, you can catch Santa anywhere“.
I think this is a great site and a unique gift idea. You could include a personalized CatchACharacter.com photo in your gift photo albums, they would make a great addition that the recipient would be sure to get a chuckle out of! A wonderful idea for all ages, plus it really is fun! “Catch him in YOUR house” today!
CatchACharacter.com photos are $9.99 each (no shipping cost since it’s a digital product!). I noticed when I was checking out that you can get 3 additional photos added on to your order for just $10.00 more!
