You can put an image of your dog on just about anything these days. The results, though, rarely impress, because the phone cases, keychains, and other products found at online customization shops tend to lean toward the generic.
Enter Paw and Print, an Etsy store that personalizes one-of-a-kind items. Owner and “bona fide crafter” Sarah Voss starts with a unique base, such as a wood slice or travertine tile. Per your instruction, she then leaves your image as is or alters it using a sepia, black-and-white, or vintage filter before she applies it to the piece. Her magnets, keychains, and coasters have a rustic look and feel, and they make excellent gifts, whether for yourself or a fellow pet parent.
Voss prices her custom items at $11 for a magnet, $13 for a keychain, and $37 for a set of four coasters, but she has generously offered to give three Dogster readers their choice of one item for free!
