At FindersKeepers, we believe in communication as art and art as communication. We also believe that communication and art are gifts... in every sense of the word. That's why we offer a range of products and services to help you communicate artfully and create uniquely personal gifts that do the same. To see what we mean, have a look at these examples.

Themed Art Cards
A client who played Rumpleteaser in her high school's production of Cats came up with the clever idea of giving cat-themed notecards as thank-you gifts to her director, choreographer, costumer, etc. We worked with the girl to create six-card sets featuring digital paintings from cat photos she took during a vacation in Greece the previous summer.
Home Sweet Home
As a Christmas gift for her husband, this client wanted an artistic portrait of their new house.
We created a digital sketch from the client's photos, then transferred the artwork to a 6 "x 6" tumbled travertine marble tile and coupled it with a simple display easel.
"Hey, I'm IN it!"
Been saving a cool line drawing or doodle? Have a good picture of whoever drew it? Marrying the two — as we did here — can give you a great image to print as cards, stationery, t-shirts... you name it!
from the desk of...
For her nephew's sixth birthday, our client commissioned a framed Pop Art-style portrait of the boy. To the delight of the child's parents, auntie also had the portrait rendered as a set of personal notecards on which Nicholas could write thank you notes for all his birthday bounty.
To celebrate her 50th birthday, this client brought us two favorite photos of herself, a whimsical portrait painted by her husband, and a "knock knock" message. We added a couple doors and gave back this three-panel invitation to the client's birthday celebration.
A mom's "most prized possession," a gift from her (now 20-something) son when he was a first-grader, was going the way most KidArt eventually goes: all faded and crumbly.
We re-created the treasure in more durable fabrics, yarns, ribbons and dimensional fabric paint, then snuggled it up to a satin pillow.
"House-proud" Personal Notecards
As personal stationery, notecards featuring home sweet home are a popular choice – especially when one's full-time residence is a fabulous boat.
Vacation Pix Come Home
During a trip to Prague, a friend photographed the amazing cobblestone streets and sidewalks he saw there.
After excavating the digital images from the photographer's computer quarry, we rendered them as porcelain tiles to serve as both coasters and conversation pieces.
Flora & Fauna PhotoGraphiCards
With flowers from astilbe to zinnia and acres of trees, grasses, herbs, vegetables and weeds to pick from, we can box up a bouquet of your favorites or ours.
Or perhaps you're partial to the creature kingdom. Our fauna collection includes the birds and the bees, an assortment of four-, six-, eight- and thousand-legged characters, and even a few marine life-forms.
Using a collection of photographs of a young artist-in-the-making, we fashioned a personalized coloring book designed to encourage the child's efforts in the self-portrait genre.
