KISS Portrait - Perfect V-Day Gift

We think DNA 11 KISS Portraits are a pretty awesome personalized gift for Valentine’s Day but it always helps when others think so too.

Which is why the timing of Rachel Zoe’s Style Your Space: 20 Posh Home Accessories feature is impeccable.

Rachel loves the KISS Portrait as a Valentine’s Day gift idea:

“Art should be personal, which is exactly what DNA 11 does by turning your kisses into wall portraits!”

We think so too Rachel, KISS Portraits are not only stylish and personalized but because the collection kit features M.A.C VIVA GLAM Lipstick, a portion of every one sold will go towards the M·A·C Aids fund.

Some love for you and a little love for others, what a great Valentine’s idea.

Actor Neil Patrick Harris attends the Access Hollywood "Stuff You Must..." Lounge produced by On 3 Productions at the Sofitel Hotel on January 15, 2011 in Los Angeles, California.

Wow what a weekend.

Last week DNA 11 was in Los Angeles to participate in the 5th Annual Access Hollywood “Stuff You Must…” Lounge where our unique DNA art was a big hit with the Golden Globes celebrities.

“This is the coolest thing I’ve ever seen!”

Thank you very much Jennifer Love Hewitt!

Also dropping by the DNA 11 booth to grab their personalized art were cast and crew members from Dexter, True Blood, Mad Men and Entourage as well as stars William Shatner and one of my personal favorites, Neil Patrick Harris! NPH loves DNA 11!

Check out the photo gallery below for all the weekend’s pics.

To wrap up the weekend, DNA 11 co-founder Adrian Salamunovic was on Access Hollywood to present host Billy Bush with his very own DNA Portrait. We’ll post a clip when it becomes available.

Of course the main reason DNA 11 went down to L.A., other than to meet NPH, was to promote our DNA 11 for Charity Program. Stay tuned for some exciting announcements in the regard soon.

Elijah Wood - DNA 11 for Charity

DNA 11 has gone Hollywood! We’re in Los Angeles this week promoting our DNA 11 for Charity Program.

We were invited to participate in the 5th Annual Access Hollywood “Stuff You Must…” Lounge which runs January 14-15 at the Sofitel Los Angeles in celebration of the 68th Golden Globe® Awards.  Dozens of celebrities will have the opportunity to create their own personalized artwork from their DNA, fingerprint or lip print.

Because we love to give back, we’re also taking the opportunity to invite the Golden Globes celebrities to join us to raise money for their favorite causes with the DNA 11 for Charity program.

DNA 11 for Charity is a one-of-kind celebrity art auction that creates limited edition prints of a celebrity’s DNA, Fingerprint or KISS print and auctions them off to support their favourite charitable organizations.

We create a limited run of a celebrity’s personalized artwork and auction them off in partnership with eBay Giving Works with 100% of the proceeds going to charity – no risk, no hassle.

Previously, DNA 11 for Charity has partnered with actor Elijah Wood to raise money for The Art of Elysium and with Athlete’s First and NFL quarterback Matt Cassel for the Orangewood Children’s Foundation.

DNA 11 is committed to giving back through its charitable foundation as well the dozens of unaffiliated events and campaign it contributes to every year. For more information visit www.dna11.com/charity.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Now that the haze of turkey, champagne and too many sweets has worn off, it’s time to make some resolutions for the new year.

2010 was the most successful year ever for DNA 11 and CanvasPop and the fourth quarter of 2010 was our biggest ever!

We were overwhelmed with the volume of orders for the holiday season and we’re probably not quite as prepared as we would have liked.

However, we’re committed to constant improvement and working towards perfection so we’ve come up with a few resolutions for 2011.

Improve Customer Response Time — We have always been committed to fast, friendly and efficient customer service but our rapid growth strained our resources at the end of 2010. We are going to address this in 2011 to ensure our best-in-class customer service continues to be the best in the industry.

Improve Delivery Times — As a company the specializes in personalized, on-demand art our products take a little longer to produce as we don’t have inventory sitting in a warehouse – we make everything right as you order it. However, we realize that our shipping times can sometimes be a bit on the long side, and though we know our customers are patient, we’d like to work on improving our shipping times so you can enjoy your personalized art sooner.

Engage More with Customers — We’re a customer-focused business, and we like to engage directly with you as much as possible through channels such as Twitter, Facebook and this blog but in 2011 we want to do more. Customer engagement means two-way communication and we are exploring way to increase the dialog. Look for us to expand our use of social media, start asking customers questions directly through polls and increasing our use of multimedia.

Reward our Customers — Our biggest ambassadors are our customers. Every day we get emails, Facebook posts and tweets from customers thanking us and sharing their amazing personalized art. In 2011 we want to expand on our customer referral and loyalty programs to provide you with even more incentive to continue to use DNA 11 and share your experiences with friends. We’ll have more information on this in the coming weeks.

Have any suggestions for us? Ways we can improve our products or services in 2011? Email pr@dna11.com and let us know!
