Family ChArtist--Even if you don't like genealogy

You've probably noticed in some of our samples, there isn't really any genealogy there. What's up with that? Is this a genealogy program or not?Well, we wanted to give you some extra functionality. Over the years we've seen genealogy charts done lots of different ways, and while we have plans for offering different layouts in the future, we've also left it open for you to do other designs.Photo collages are often popular in family history too.I'm waiting for the first person who will do a canvas giclee from one of our backgrounds or embellishments without any text at all. At our giclee prices, you can see that those would make great home decor for much less than you would get at your local boutique or art gallery.
And of course, as always, the new website will include options for printing your modern or antique photos as canvas giclees. They are a beautiful way to display your family history. The texture of the canvas is very forgiving to a grainy family history photo or a copy of a copy of a copy. And the canvas is so archival you can even run it through the washing machine. But more on paper options and pricing tomorrow.
