Buckle up that digital photo

Kimbra Studios imprints photographs onto personal accessories such as bracelets and belt buckles.

Usually, we display our favorite pictures on the wall, properly framed and large enough to be a talking point when visitors drop by. However, Kimbra Studios has a rather innovative way for you to showcase your latest works.

At the PhotoPlus Expo in New York, the company showcased its technology to imprint photographs onto personal accessories such as bracelets and belt buckles. All you have to do on its Web site is select the type of jewelry you like and upload an image. Within two to three weeks, the finished product will arrive in your mailbox.

The process sounds simple enough, but we find this service a little too pricey for our liking. The most affordable item, a mobile-phone charm, will set you back $14, while the most expensive, the bracelet, costs $260.

Then again, with the holidays just around the corner, we guess this will make a great gift for loved ones.
