4. Photo Stamps
Many photographers have started using photo stamps on their postage as a fun way to add a personal touch to everything sent in the mail and even more importantly as an effective marketing technique to generate new business. Custom stamps can help you grow your business by showcasing your work on all correspondence. They also make a very unique and creative gift for friends and family. Photo Stamps Can Be Found Here
5. Canvas Print
Canvas People is offering a free 8×10 canvas print of any photo you choose as a way to try out their service. You can get the free 8×10 or receive $55 off a larger print – your choice.

The only cost is shipping and handling (which was $14.95 for my order shipped to California). Canvas Prints Can Be Found Here
