I love seeing my images in print. Whether it's on fabric...
On an iPhone case...
Or even in a tiny run of mini-calendars. It's just so pleasing and I don't even care that just a few folks who read my blog or receive gifts or are just around me are the only ones to see these things.
My most recent printing adventures have been photography printing through prinstagr.am and printstud.io. These are two wonderful on-line photo printing shops run by the great folks at socialprintstudio.
For one thing they seem to specialize in the *small* print sizes, which I love.
These are 2 x 3 prints and they come matte - my fave - on a super strong cardstock.
These are the 4 x 4 size and they're just as pleasing.
I've taken many of my photos from Paris and put them into this printed format. I've been handing them out to my friends, making thank you notes, and spouting the wonder of the printstud.io site. LOVE!!
Some of my true faves, however, have come from the Prinstagr.am site where you can make mini - polaroid type prints from your Instagram photos.
These have made the best little gift tags. This weekend I finally got around to sending long overdue thank you cards to the hosts and hostesses of our collective spring break travels.
I made an accordian style collection of some of my Paris photos for my Aunt.
And then used one of the bright floral 4 x 4's for our friends in Hawaii who hosted the other half of my family.
The sturdy stock and the vibrant colors really bring forth the photographic moment and provide tons of inspiration for all kinds of artwork. Maybe these will even end up in a collage somewhere...we'll just have to wait and see.
