Just Picture This

Memory BoxJust Picture This, a unique personalized gift company incorporated in 2004, is directed by partners Julie Larson and Karen Villano from their New Jersey location.

Using current or vintage photographs, newspaper clippings and most other images, we can design modern heirlooms to mark today's special occasions. Each "memory box," tray or decorative item is tailored to the custom needs of each client. We provide a large selection of hand rubbed finishes and exclusively designed interiors, all of which complement the many gift choices. We provide an individualized consultation with each order and expert advice is always available.

Villano, the company's founder, came up with the original idea. Searching for the perfect birthday gift with a sentimental twist, she developed the revolutionary Just Picture This process of using personal photographs to create a timeless keepsake. Villano tested this new business concept by presenting Larson, one of her good friends, with a gift box using some of Larson's family photographs. When it brought Larson to tears, they knew they had the beginnings of a successful business venture.

Villano, the creative director of Just Picture This, is a graduate of the Fashion Institute of Technology in NYC with a degree in buying and merchandising. Her diverse experience in the design industry brings an expert touch to each product.

Larson is a graduate of William Paterson University with a degree in business. A former division manager for a major company, Julie handles the technical support, customer service and marketing aspects of this growing business.

Mark any occasion with a one-of-a-kind treasure from Just Picture This.

Client Testimonial

"It was inconceivable that I could hand over 14 photos to perfect strangers and in about 2 weeks receive in the mail a gift which evoked such precious memories. It was the easiest thing I've ever done!"
