A Store for Customized Gift Items Opens at SM North Edsa – The Block

Customized gift items are just the thing you’ll be looking for this holiday season, and there’s no better place in Manila for customized gifts than Photo Fusion.  Photo Fusion has just opened a new wallshop inside The Block at SM North Edsa.  It’s a wonderful place for collecting gift-making ideas whether for yourself, friends, or loved ones.

Featured here are customized backpacks, bags, wallets, and pouches.

The first thing you’ll notice after walking into their store is an amazing assortment of items that can be customized.  From backpacks to bags, wallets to pillows, the choices for customized items are endless.

This company specializes in dye sublimation printing, a new technology that really amazes us because of its vibrant colors and photo realistic printing.   For garments, the ability to make a full-color print that covers the complete garment is quite remarkable, as shown by the mannequin in the store wearing a photo realistic shirt design.

Along the other side of the store is a wall full of cute ceramic tile prints with colorful sayings and quotes.  You can customize the ceramic tiles with your own photos and designs, then hang them on the wall with a wall mount or opt for a wood easel instead.  They also have canvas prints and metal prints that can be customized to your liking.

Canvas, metal, and ceramic tile prints adorn the wall.

Once you’ve settled on the item you want, the staff are really accomodating in helping you create the design you want for your item. I chose a body pillow, then found a pre-made template I liked from their template catalog.  We grabbed some pictures from my phone, adjusted the wording and coloring for the pillow, and like that my item was ready for printing.  I’ll be back in a couple of days to pick up the completed item (they do all the manufacturing themselves), so you know you’re product is truly made to order.

Their saying on the wall says it best: “Welcome to the world of dye sublimation printing, where pictures, dancing with color, infuse to create customized gifts like no other.  Listen to your imagination, create from the heart.  This is Photo Fusion, customize your world!”

You can visit Photo Fusion at SM North Edsa – The Block.  They also have locations at SM Clark, SM East Ortigas, and SM Megamall.  Their website is
