ROFLDNA ?? DNA 11 lends a helping hand to a good cause.

A couple of weeks ago the 2nd Annual ROFLCon took place in New York City. It’s a conference dedicated to Internet culture and some of the biggest Internet celebrities came out for the weekend convention… of course there’s always a big party and tons of fun to be had!

This year Alexis Ohanion, co-founder of reddit.com and breadpig, set up an auction on eBay with a DNA Mini Portrait of all the Internet celebs who came out over the weekend. They’re calling it ROFLDNA and it’s in support of a great charity, Child’s Play.  The portrait will be a mash-up of all the celebrities’ DNA and will have all their signatures.

Looks like they had a blast… check out a few pics below of the DNA collection process and some of the signatures you’ll see on the final piece of DNA Art.

And don’t forget to check back… I’ll post the link to the auction as soon as it goes up.

– New UK printing studio opens –

DNA 11 has recently launched a brand new printing studio and distribution centre in the UK. The new facility has been set up to better serve our customers with faster delivery and lower prices on all DNA Art across the UK and Europe. We are passionately committed to creating the highest quality art possible.

With the UK studio and distribution centre, DNA 11 is now able to offer DNA pictures (including KISS and Fingerprint portraits) with no duties and free shipping; not just in the UK, but for everyone in Europe.

Back in 2005 James May, host of Top Gear on BBC, had his DNA Portrait done which helped introduce DNA 11 to hundreds of UK homes (check out a clip here). Since then, the UK has become DNA 11’s second largest market worldwide.

The new facility handles everything from printing to stretching and of course, the shipping — check out some pictures below.

We now have points of presence in USA, Canada, UK, India, Tokyo, and Australia!

It’s that time of year again – time to go out and find the perfect Valentine’s Day gift. Whether it’s a Valentine’s gift for him or for her; this year is the year to move past the classic chocolate, candles, and flowers by finding something you know they’ll remember for years to come.

Lately the biggest craze has been finding your loved one that perfect personalized gift and for years this meant a key chain with a name engraved or the ever popular “World’s Best Boyfriend” mug. Well, lately the bar has been raised and now you can name a star after your loved one  or even purchase them an acre of land on the Moon with the Lunar Registry.

Although both are really cool concepts – do you think that we’ll be packing up and moving to the Moon to make use of that acre any time soon? That I’ll leave to you… But while you think about it… why not find the ideal Valentine’s Day gift personalized for him or for her with a piece of personalized DNA Art from DNA 11.

The DNA Mini Portrait is a great gift for the man looking for the latest in decor as it brings together art, technology, and pop culture at an affordable price. Measuring just 8”x10” the DNA Mini Portrait is perfect for the office or on a bedside table.
KISS Portrait
And for the perfect gift for her this Valentine’s give her more than just a kiss… immortalize it with the KISS Portrait, from DNA 11. Add your lips and her lips on the same canvas and choose from lots of color combinations and sizes. DNA 11 has partnered with M·A·C Cosmetics and a portion of the sale of every KISS Portrait will go towards the M·A·C AIDS Fund.

So now you’re probably asking yourself how you surprise someone with a portrait like this, and on top of that, how do you get someone’s DNA or lip print without them knowing? Not to worry, that’s been thought of too and it couldn’t be easier. No, you won’t have to sneak into their bathroom and take a piece of hair from her brush or secretly find a way of getting the lip print.

All you have to do is order the gift kit; complete with a DNA gift card, instructions, collection kit and everything else they need to get started on the piece you selected. It even comes in a nice metal box so they have something to open on Valentine’s. If you really aren’t sure what they want you can order gift certificates too. It will be sent over to you for wrapping or sent right to your loved one by mail, or even by email, with a message from you.

So this Valentine’s Day forget the bubble bath and the roses. Find your loved ones a truly personalized, one a kind gift and buy some DNA Art from DNA 11. There is still plenty of time to order and have your perfect gift ready before Valentine’s Day.
