Personalised 16th Birthday Prints - A Collection Of Unique 16th Birthday Gift Ideas

We've collected together some of the best 16th birthday personalised prints we have and we've put them all on one page. Personal gifts are good for you, as the giver, and they're good for whoever you're giving to. 

Our prints: 

  • are specifically designed as 16th birthday presents
  • often include the chance to add your own personal touch, like a personalised message - this means you can make your print just right for whoever you're giving it to

Here goes...

(1) Record Collection Print

This print gives the impression of a record collection of popular chart records from 16 years ago. Half the records are albums and half are singles, so get a great mix of artists and songs, and a great idea of what music was popular in the UK sixteen years ago. It's a nostalgic look down a musical memory lane.personalised 16th birthday 2006 music print

You can customise this print to make it more personal:

  • Add a short message with one character on each record spine - this is printed along the bottom of the print, below the year (it's great for short messages like 'HAPPY BIRTHDAY!').
  • Add a longer message, where each word appears on a different spine at the top of the print.
  • Finally, if there are any records from 16 years ago that you especially want to appear on the print, we can update our standard selection to include it.

This print is brilliant for music lovers. It'll get you talking about the music!

Here's a detailed look at some of the spines. Remember this music...?

(2) 16th Birthday Facts Print

This print is packed with trivia and facts from 16 years ago. It's a mix of television, sport, movies, famous births, music, money and historical events. 

The recipient's name and birth date appear in the centre of the design. The print is a little bit of their personal history - it's the world they were born into.

This print is based on UK events (for example, the sporting events are well-known, popular sporting event from the the UK). Several different colour schemes are available:

(3) The Top Ten Records From 16 Years Ago: Chart Music On The Day You Were Born

What music was at the top of the UK charts on the day you were born? The answer to this very important question appears on this print! We find out the top ten singles from the UK charts on any date 16 years ago and show them as a record label on this custom music print design. 

The personalisation options on this print include the chance to add a long message in tiny text all the way round the bottom of the label - on real LPs this text is usually used for legal messages but you can make your message much more interesting!

Here's the LP record label print:

(4) Personalised 16th Birthday Abstract Art Year and Date Prints

We've used a very simple idea to create these prints: replace numbers with colours.Is that simple enough? We then use the colours to create the print. Since dates are often written using just numbers (i.e. no words), they're perfect for this unique kind of custom abstract art print.

It's easy to see what we do using an example...

  • The date 4th March 1962 can be written as 04031962
  • Allocate each number a colour then print the colours in the same sequence as the date (see the picture below) - the sequence of colours is different for every date so you get a unique artwork for every date
  • At the bottom of the print, we print the colour and its number in a series of little circles 
  • For a 16th birthday gift you could print their date of birth or the date of their 16th birthday

These custom art prints may appeal to someone with an interest in science, computing or mathsbecause they'll already be familiar with the idea of presenting numerical information in a visual way.

In computing, presenting data visually - like flow charts, for example - often makes things easier to understand. In these custom artworks, presenting the date visually is just about the fun! It's interesting to watch someone look at one of these prints as they work out its meaning (it's not hard to 'crack the code' but it's still satisfying when you do!).

The custom abstract artworks for a year (rather than a date with days and months) are bolder and more minimalist, because there are only four digits in a year:

These abstract geometric artworks are available in a range of colour schemes. Click on the pictures above to see the full range of colours.

(5) Personalised 16th Birthday Year In Music Print

A music-themed print that's bursting with music facts and trivia from 16 years ago. The print shows the top selling albums and singles (from the UK charts), information on music awards and live music and lots of other music events from 16 years ago. There are plenty of facts for music-lovers to pore over!

You personalise this print with a name and a birth date. The nice little touch here is that we use the birth date to print the UK number one single and album on that day. The print is a fabulous slice of personal music history and a lovely nostalgic conversation piece. It's available in several colour schemes.

Good morning! My granddaughter will be turning 16 in March. She is the reason that I am here today… I’d love something, that is anything but cliche, to buy/do for her then. I am wide open to suggestions and would love a reply. Thank you for your anticipated time and consideration to my dilemma (of sorts) and have a remarkable day ~ Monica
