My son and his basketball team had their team photos today and I must say they looked very cute in their photos. I was amazed at the packages they offer these days. I mean you can buy just about everything from individual and team photos (5x7) to photo magnets, mouse pads, holiday ornaments, trading cards, posters (large ones too), calendars, buttons, magazine covers, magnets, puzzles, sculptures and key chains - a very large selection to choose from. I just ordered one 5x7 individual and one 8x10 team photo which cost me $14 + $3 for postage costs. So do you order sports photos of your childrens teams? do you go all out and buy several different things or just an individual photo and or team photo? I suppose these would make good Christmas gifts for grandparents and relatives if one of the other items were ordered. Thanks for sharing.

I send the grandparents my sons school photos too. They love them. I also have his artwork put on various peices like handtowels or something like that. This year I think I'll just stick to getting one individual and one team one for our album.

It has never come up for me. My 9 year old has never been in any team sports before. I think I would want to at least buy something so that he could have that as a memory. That is a lot for just 2 photos.

Yes it is considering you can get a 5x7 from CVS for 0.19c. Oh well because their sports photos and done professionally that's probably why.

My two girls have soccer team and individual pictures taken 3 times a year - 2 indoor sessions and 1 outdoor or rep session. I couldn't possibly purchase pictures every time. They get the team and an individual photo with it on one sheet for free. That's all we need. On year I ordered two key chains of each. The girls put their's on their soccer bags so we know whose is whose, and then I have one of each of them on my summer travelling soccer bag (it contins bug spray, sunscreen, rain gear, sweatshirt). I don't think my family members would have any interest in getting copies of these, especially so often. I don't even know what they do with their annual school photos.

That is a lot of photos in one year. I wouldn't be able to afford to buy that many either. One reason why I decided to just buy one of himself and one of his team. I normally get his artwork printed on various things for his grandparents. They love those!
