Each month our customers add their personalized magazine covers to our Gallery of Covers. We then add these covers to an album on our Facebook page.  Emails go out and posts get circulated on Facebook letting everyone know that it is time for them to visit that month's album to help us choose the Cover of the Month.  Visitors to our Facebook album then 'like' whichever covers they think are the best. Customers can tag and share their magazine cover design with their friends to try to get as many likes as possible. At the end of the voting period (typically 3 days), we choose the Cover of the Month from among the three fake magazine covers with the most likes.

The May 2013 Cover of the Month is a 6th anniversary gift that Michele K of Sneads Ferry, NC made.  The photo is super cute and fun!  She used our standard "Happy Anniversary" magazine cover template but then personalized it to her occasion by adding the word "Sixth" to the title.  For being chosen as the May Cover of the Month Michele has received a gift code for a free magazine cover print and wood frame (with free shipping too of course).  We're sure you'll think that Michele's design is a fun example of a personalized magazine cover and is a unique and memorable anniversary gift.

To make a fake magazine cover for your anniversary, follow the 3 simple steps below:

1) Choose a magazine cover template (we have 80+ choices)

2) Upload a photo of the couple

3) Personalize the default headlines so each one is about the recipients, their family, interests, likes and dislikes. You can include special memories and inside jokes too!

Finding a unique 50th birthday gift can be a challenge. YourCover offers a 50th Birthday fake magazine cover that is easily created, affordably priced and quickly delivered.  A lot of 50th birthday gifts are gag or novelty gifts that make fun of 'how old' the person is. However, if you're interested in giving a gift that's still fun and memorable but doesn't poke fun at the recipient, a 50th birthday magazine cover fits the bill.

To make a magazine cover follow 3 easy steps:

50th Birthday Personalized Fake Magazine Cover Gift1) Choose a magazine cover template (we have 80+ choices but for this occasion we recommend 50th Birthday, Celebrity, SuperStar or one of our 'interests' templates such as Golf, Tennis or dance)

2) Upload a photo of the birthday honoree

3) Personalize the default headlines so each one is about the recipient, their family, interests, likes and dislikes. You can include special memories and inside jokes too!

If you need a last minute 50th birthday gift that is delivered instantly, the magazine cover can be downloaded to your computer as an image file and self-printed. If more time is available, YourCover can print and frame the magazine cover for you. Our turn-around time is super fast with orders typically shipping same day and delivery time taking 2-4 business days.

Below is a recent review about a 50th birthday magazine cover made by Judy V of Aurora, IL that explains why YourCover is a unique 50th birthday gift idea...

"Selecting a gift for the person who has everything is quite difficult, especially if it's a milestone birthday. This was a great idea and Your Cover makes customer service a top priority! I was quite impressed. After sending the payment info, etc., I got e-mails from customer service that the picture was blurry. Most companies would have just made it, I paid for it. They did not and helped me when I sent additional pictures until the quality was top notch. Not many places do that and I would/will definitely use them again!"

I remember my high school graduation all those years ago.  It was a cloudy, hot and sticky day in late June with an imminent threat of a thunderstorm.  At some point during the ceremony someone set off firecrackers – now that was memorable.   I wish that I had a personalized magazine cover from YourCover complete with photos of me and my classmate as well as photos of my old school.   It would have been fun to have a top ten list of reasons why I was happy to graduate (ok there were more than ten – way more) and funny remembrances of things that Graduation Fake Magazine Cover Gift from YourCoverhappened along the way. 

But back in the day there was nothing like a YourCover Graduation fake magazine cover.   So all I have are a few photos, a yellowed diploma and what I have in my memory banks.   Pretty much the same can be said of my college graduation which for whatever reason is even less clear in my memory than my high school graduation! 

What is really an appropriate gift to a graduate?   Sure cash is great – and appreciated.  But not necessarily memorable (I guess unless it was a LOT of cash).   Why not give a unique graduation gift that will be truly appreciated, remembered and is extremely affordable?   

Visit Yourcover and get started on a personalized Graduation magazine cover while there’s still plenty of time to have fun creating your completely personalized gift.

Aside from parents and teachers, athletic coaches are some of the most influential adults in young people’s lives.  A great coach does so much more than lead his or her team on the field of play.   Winning on the field is great but winning in life is all the more important and a great coach is able to understand the difference.

When I think back on the coaches I’ve had and that my kids have had I can remember the great ones and the not-so great ones.   I often wishBest Coach Fake Magazine Cover there had been a way to acknowledge with a unique coach's gift how the team (and parents) felt about the great coach that would be more memorable than tickets to a ballgame, a plaque or a watch.   A personalized fake magazine cover from YourCover would have been just perfect.  

The inside jokes about the players on the team, their idiosyncrasies and of course the coach’s odd and often funny sayings that every member of the team can recite with ease should never be forgotten!   I can recall one of my high school coaches asking me during a tennis match in which I was trailing, if I was in a hurry to lose.  I thought about what he said, changed my approach and won the match!   And I’ve never forgotten that whenever I play now.  

I’ve actually stayed in touch with that team from many years ago but sadly lost contact with the coach who I am sure has since passed on.  I regret that we did not have the opportunity to let him know how we all felt and a personalized Best Coach magazine cover could have easily depicted all the highlights and fun we had during that championship season. 

Don’t let the opportunity pass you by to give a great and memorable gift to an influential coach.   Check out and start on a Best Coach magazine cover today.   Both the team and the coach will never forget it!

Think back to the teachers from your past who you can still remember today.   If you’re like me it’s a positive thing for the most part as some of them were really great, I’ve also tried hard to forget the teachers that left me cold.    I still find myself remembering things that my teachers have told me and I’m even more appreciative of the caring and influence they had on my life.   

Best Teacher Gift - fake magazine coverSome of my old teachers are even active on Facebook although it is a bit odd to be FB friends with someone that taught me in high school a very long time ago.  Yet they are closer to me in age than are my children!   Had YourCover been around at the time there are several of my former teachers for whom I would have enjoyed creating a personalized BEST TEACHER fake magazine.  I would include the inside jokes that only the teacher and my classmates would understand (and they still make me laugh so many years later).  What’s more the teachers would have loved it – and kept and treasured it I’m certain. 

When you are growing up it’s sometimes difficult to realize that a teacher is playing such an important role in your life’s development.    In fact it’s likely that Mom and Dad recognize a great teacher before the student does.  

If you are looking for a unique teacher’s gift for your teacher (or your child’s teacher), you can make Teacher Appreciation Day especially memorable with a “Best Teacher” personalized magazine cover from Yourcover.  It’s the perfect way to acknowledge and remember the best of the best when it comes to those that help shape your future.

My mom shot her 1st buck ever! She started hunting when she was 20, but hasn't been hunting now for over 20 years.
