Fractureme Photo question

I purchased my wife a couple of fractureme photos. you upload photo and pick a size and they print the photo directly on glass. The two I got her turned out great. I am going to pick a PCGS trueview to do this with for some art in my office. Now which one should I pick???

    I would do a single image of the reverse only of the Franklin as that is an awesome photo.

    the obverse of the nickel and the reverse of the half, it would start conversations

    unless you live in Canada, then the 1971 British Columbia

    unless you work in a coin store, I vote none. bad way to advertise your collection.

    I do like the frankie reverse only idea

    Can you or the printer separate out just the coin so the coin floats in the glass and the background is clear instead of white?

  • davids5104davids5104 Posts: 796 ✭✭✭✭

    I know nothing about how the process is done. I just like the bright glossy look of it. The editing tool of the photo appears limited to cropping based on my memory, but that was late november

    Id put the series that has the most special connection on it. All the coins are very nice and you could argue any of them!

    so if I have a copy of the "Mona Lisa" in my office it's a tip-off that I collect Art?? :|

    Tossup between the Canadian and the Franklin, but the reverse of the Franklin is awesome so I chose it.

    As for "advertising" that's getting a bit paranoid. I had a mousepad at my work that had a collage of all my toned Morgans and it was a great conversation piece.

    So if it's on glass, the object would seem to be mounting it in a sunny place as one would a stained glass ornament. The Canadian dollar would probably be coolest in this respect.

    Edit: Just looked at their website, and I see that's not what they do. If someone did do that, though, I'd pick the Canadian dollar.

    the back of the glass is a sturdy cardboard or foam board for mounting. Sun will not shine through the item. I am unsure if the backing could be removed as I think it is glued. This is going in my office at home not work. I do like the idea of only doing a single side. I am trying to figure out how to remove a partial logo from half of the trueview

    Don't glass pictures shatter easily?

    when you got the email from PCGS Photography they give you links of each cert they have
    if you click on a number it takes you to a picture and then gives you 6 options for downloads
    the last 2 are Max Obverse and Max Reverse (white background)

    both of these just give the coin

    You'll have to post a picture of the final result and tell us what you think of it.

    Unless I lived in Canada, the C Dollar wouldn’t be my choice. That Franklin reverse is riveting.

    I have had these coins for a while so the email is long gone. I think I am going to reach out to PCGS and see if they can send me the white and black background Franklin.

    A very nice product. :)

  • davewesendavewesen Posts: 3,546 ✭✭✭✭✭

    That is an awesome Philippine coin. Is the printing actually on the glass, or is it a picture with a sheet of glass over it?
