This is one of my Christmas presents to my husband. There is a set of twelve coasters. I doubled up on three images to make the dozen. I found the images online. The first set is from Fox Tv shows: Family Guy, Simpsons and King of The Hill. The last tile in the first set and the second set are from Futurama.
 I went to my local Lowes for the tiles. The images are printed on standard photo paper as 4x4 images. I have access to a vacuum press at work for dry mounting images. I used an adhesive spray to attach the images to the tiles. Don't use too much adhesive or the adhesive will spill out from under the image. I put on three coats of clear flat laquer over the tiles after pulling them from the press. The "feet" for the bottom of the coasters are Bumpon by 3M.

They look great! Did your husband like them?

These would be so simple to make and you could pretty much make them for anyone by switching up images.
