My 5 year old niece was visiting while I was flipping through an old photo album (yes an actual printed photo album).
She asked me “What’s that?”
I said “A photo album”.
She replied, “Don’t you have those on your ipad to look at?”
It got me thinking, most of the photos we take these days are on our phones. How often do you see someone pull out an actual camera and when was the last time you looked through a photo album? I think that my entire last 3-4 years of memories are on my phone. How long has it been since I printed a photo?
Even at work, I can’t remember when someone last asked to look at my printed portfolio- they either want my website or a slideshow on my ipad.
Its a digital world.
Taking pic’s with your phone is super convenient but iphone photos don’t really lend themselves to printing quality images.
I am redonculously obsessed with the social-photo phenomena Instagram. I love stylizing my pics and sharing them, but again my problem was I had all these photo-tastic memories on Instagram that I wanted to print for my home and didn’t know how.

Here is a peek at the poster I ordered #loveit
I am for sure gonna look at these and see which one i want to order. I’m already leaning towards the poster though.
Thanks Christie, awesome!
I love the poster….sweet post…
My favorite for sure is the Poster. To me, it looks like the nicest way to showcase photos that a person took themselves. Its clean, classy, and simple.
I love that you turned me on to this site! I think it’s fantastic and I love those mini-albums. Great for Valentine’s Day gifts.
I love the poster and the memory box cards. So true about not printing photos in the past few years. What a great idea, Christe!
I love printing photos and have used prinstagram. My niece had a really cool grouping of 16 different 10 x 10 square pics from prinstagram done for her wall. It looks so great in person. Thanks for your tips!
So my framed photos will soon be vintage, huh? Lol. That poster is great. I might do that with my Vegas photos… Thanks for all the info!
Ok, I LOVe the stickers. Too cool for school I’d combine those with my secret stationery resource to make the ultimate envelope seal to use, *drumroll*, physical mail. Too fun!!!
Love love the poster!!
You know that’s funny you say that no one ever prints out their photos anymore… Every time I upload my photos to my laptop I then upload them to cvs so one day I will be able to print all my photos out and put them in albums. I tried printing a Instagram photo out and it didn’t print the right way. Now that I know there is a site to print all my photos the right way I will deff be doing this 🙂 I would do the memory box 🙂 cool! Thanks girl 🙂 you always know the cool stuff!!!
Oh my gosh! What an amazing idea! I have the same issue with the printed photos…I have all these albums of mine, and my husband, tons of my first two kids, then none for the twins! I LOVE this. Am so doing it. And, it’s a great gift idea, too!
