Printing your Animals

September 24, 2008

Hi everyone and thank you for all the cool notes. It has been hactick as we are rolling out Shidonni this week , slowly, “seeding” information about us.

We want you to have an impact on what we do , so here is the first question :

Would you like to print your animals ? and if you would , would you like to print them alone (just the animal) or the animal with its background (like a safari photo ?)

Do let us know !
