5 Ways to Art-ify Your Pet | The Brite Life Blog

5 Ways to Art-ify Your Pet

We’re all guilty of keeping every single snap of our favorite pet saved on our camera roll and taking up storage. Why not pull your most-prized pic and turn it into a piece of art?

Here are 5 ways you can celebrate your pet, and make them the supermodel you always knew they were:

They're not here for our whole lives, but they make our lives whole

Custom New Neon®

Meet Boomer! His humans wanted to celebrate his 10th birthday with a custom neon pet portrait. Boomer's dog mom, Jessica, sent in a photograph of him for us to use. Our designer Tara magically immortalized the pup in new neon, glowing in lemon yellow. This was such a fun project for us—if you want your own custom pet portrait, we'd love to help!

Puzzle

Put your brain to work with the cutest pic of your favorite pet! Pick a background style that best suits your furry friend, have them strike a pose for a photo, download it, and Puzzle Your Pet will make it here in the USA! This interactive masterpiece will be a real winner with the kiddos too.

Masterpiece

Have a stately pet? Create a fun and stately portrait. Megan Carn is an artist that specializes in painting colorful pieces, bringing these portraits to life. Wether you find an existing print of your breed, or commission your very own piece, this work of art will be a prized addition to your collection!


Socks + Blankets

So our pets already warm our hearts, but what if I told you they could warm our feet too? Custom socks and blankets! These are to die for and oh so soft. Simply download your favorite photo and start building your own! I'm sure your pet will want to cuddle up with them too.

Neon Frenchie

The future’s so brite for this frenchie. If you have a French Bulldog, this big pup is ready for you to take home! If you have a different breed (like Boomer for example), get in touch with one of our designers here and we can turn your pet image into a high quality, handmade, LED neon sign that will be ready to greet guests and pet play-dates alike within 3 weeks!

Aren't those paw-some?

There’s no end of possibilities to memorialize the cuteness, or silliness, of your animal pal. Whether you make a game of it or a cuddly plush, you can constantly be reminded of why you cherish them so. So go on! Get those photos out of storage and create something unique and tailored just for you and your pet!

Let's Get This Straight: Last Names and Apostrophes

So you're embracing your new name, and you're ready to make it shine in neon on your big day. There's one question that stumps most couples: is an apostrophe necessary? Well, we have an answer. Let's talk grammar.

To apostrophe or not to apostrophe, that is the question.

Congratulations! Getting married is kind of a big deal and you’ve spent weeks poring over all the details. And for one of those details, you’ve decided that you want a custom neon sign for your wedding that announces to the world your new name and identity as a married couple. After much deliberation, you’ve decided to create a custom sign with your last name. One important detail that you don’t want to overlook when creating your sign is...wait for it...ugh… grammar. You see, there are a couple options for your sign, so let’s get nerdy for just a minute and go over the choices.  

One important detail that you don’t want to overlook when creating your sign is...wait for it...ugh… grammar.

Let’s say your last name is Miller.

You could use our online customizer to create a custom sign that says “The Miller’s” (with apostrophe) Or your sign could say, “The Millers” (no apostrophe). What’s the difference?, you might ask. Well, quite a bit actually. When you use the apostrophe, that indicates possession, i.e. the wedding that belongs to Mr. and Mrs. Miller would be “The Miller’s wedding.” Or “The Miller’s house” to indicate the house belonging to the Miller family. You get the idea.

 

On the other hand, if your sign says “The Millers” (no apostrophe), this indicates the plural version of Miller, meaning more than one. If you want to indicate that you are now “The Millers”, John and Sara, then the correct punctuation is simply adding the “s” to “Miller” with no apostrophe.


The more you know!

While either option is acceptable and makes sense in the context of a sign for your wedding, it’s good to know the difference so that you can make an informed choice when designing your sign and other materials for your big celebration. After all, this day should be perfect and you don’t want a little grammar issue getting in the way. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to one of our design consultants here. Or if you’re ordering your sign using our customizer, then make sure to plan ahead. Our custom signs will deliver to you 3 weeks from your order date.

5 Ways to Amp-Up your Dorm Room | Brite Lite Blog

5 ways to amp up your dorm room

Congratulations!

You’ve been accepted into your dream school, now it’s time to design your dream dorm room. With the fall semester quickly approaching, we’re giving you 5 ways to make your space your own.

“If you’re brave enough to say goodbye, life will reward you with a new hello.”
-Paulo Coehlo

Pinterest


Optimize storage

Word from the wise, your room will be tight. Storage that stacks or slides will be your best friend this year. Either make sure it conceals well under your bed, or make it pretty! Try starting with your color palette and choosing baskets that match, or a bed skirt that will hide anything you tuck under the bed.

Pinterest


Dual Action

2 in 1 shampoos may not be your thing, but a desk that doubles as a vanity should be! A shared bathroom is hectic, so doing a majority of your morning routine outside if it will mean saved time before that AM class (a.k.a. you get to press snooze at least once). You’ll spend a lot of your time here, plus, a vanity has always been a great way to add a bit of style and vintage charm to a room.

Pinterest


Keep it Fresh

Not only will plants keep you company in this new territory, they have proven to lift moods and purify air. It’s a triple win! Name ‘em and hang them up, or place one on your study table for that fresh, green touch of life. Don’t know which plant will suit you? Here are some good examples for college students: Bamboo is practically indestructible, Pathos is pretty and easy, and Aloe is a life-saver post spring break!

Keep it Organized

You’re going to have a lot of due dates and social events to keep track of. A calendar of some sort is non-negotiable. If you’re visual like me, you’ll want to write it down and hang it up so you can’t forget. This fun neon “Create” sign will make those assignments hard to miss! We have a collection of Neon calendars in a full range of sizes and colors! You can take a look here.

Make it Yours

By now you’ve got the layout and organization covered. Adding your own unique touch will finalize that new-found sense of independence. Decor! You can’t paint the walls, but you can add some color with a custom neon sign. A table top sign with your initials or a cute shape will add a personalized pop of color!

On a similar note, you could make your very own name glow with our customizer tool. These girls had it figured out -- check out their TikTok with the link below!
