    We are having our kitchen done at the moment and I would like to get some tile transfers done, I have the idea to take some photos of fruit and veg, etc.
    Does anyone know where I might get photo transfers done that I could put on tiles.

    Well I have just had a good look online and read a few thread about putting photos on kitchen tiles and the thing to seem to be:

    Print a photo onto normal copy paper glue that to a tile cover with watered down PVA glue and then cover with a waterproof varnish, (Or buy something called Modge Podge glue).You can buy lazertran transfer paper which you can then print your photo onto and then trasfer to a tile but I might try the basic method first.

    Why not use something like these Avery Clear Decals? They're like the clear window cling decals that you put in cars. I'm sure they'd probably work on ceramic tile also. Print them, cut them out, and stick them to the tiles. This way, they'd be removable in case you ever changed your mind.
    Or your fruit.
