A unique and memorable proposal - Personal-Prints

A unique and memorable proposal

January 21, 2015

While Patrick Kissinger is from a generation of text messages, facebook, and tweeting, he used the romance of a personalized message delivered in the mail to propose to his long-distance sweetheart.

Every man wants his wedding engagement to be memorable and romantic. With an average of 6000+ marriages every day in the US, men are hard pressed to put together a unique proposal. That’s why we see billboards at sports games emblazoned with the big question, proposals on TV, or hear about private strolls on a moonlit beach concluding with a small box and a diamond ring.

But what if you are involved in a long distance relationship?  That was the exact predicament facing Patrick while he worked on the east coast and his girlfriend – Tessa – remained at home in California. While searching the web for an Anniversary present, he stumbled upon Personal-Prints.com - the online storefront for a personalized art publisher. He found a painting titled “Love Birds” of two black-capped chickadees sitting on an aspen tree with a heart “carved” on in the bark below.

Rather than having the artist add “Patrick + Tessa” as the personalization inside the heart, Patrick had the print personalized with “Will You Marry Me?” The print was delivered to Tessa’s doorstep several days later, and she immediately began mulling the medium for her response.

Although she could have quickly given Patrick a call, Tessa decided to respond in the same romantic fashion. After a week of anticipation, Patrick opened a package from Personal-Prints and inside was a "Love Birds" print personalized with “YES.”

For those who take any chance they get to set a tee time on the golf course, but aren’t fortunate enough to live in a location where the weather allows it, we know the struggle. Personal-Prints’ home is on the front range of Colorado, so we are well aware of what a harsh winter can bring, and it’s not always warm enough for an 18-hole. But there are plenty of courses out there where you can bask in the warmth of the sun and finally get your fix of greens (not the leafy kind).
