Gives me a great idea for "honoring" my husband's next "0" birthday in 3.5 years!
Well, you've got plenty of time! Just don't wait until the last minute like I did. I procrastinated and ended up not having time to explore my options with various service bureaus. I had to send the files out right away to avoid paying rush charges. It ended up costing me $100 ($75 for a 20 x 24 color print plus $25 for the coating to protect from smudging).

That was the biggest expense. I bought two stock photos from istockphoto.com for $5 each and bought a can of spray adhesive for about $5.

It was all worth it to see the look on the guy's face -- when we presented him with the six-pack, he first thought it was just a real, albeit unusual, brand of beer. When he finally noticed that his own photo was on the label, he was just stunned. It was priceless.
