Wondering What To Read Next?

Keepsake Perfect with Printiki.

In Collaboration with Printiki
I am a sentimental person. I absolutely love printing out all of the photos I've captured over the years, snippets of a time in my life and then storing them for the future Emmie to sit and look through.

One of my biggest goals for this year is to go through those photos and undertake a project to create a journal or a photo album of those chapters in my life, from the university years right until the past couple of years of blogging.

I want to stop becoming so consumed in uploading so many memories onto social media or into the numerous Facebook albums I've created over the years. I want to make some physical products from something I love collecting. Plus I can't imagine a better feeling than getting a few years in the future and finding all of these wonderful photos with written memories of that glimpse into your past.

Printiki do just that with their amazing photo product company creating the easiest way for us to 'Get your photos out of the cloud and into your hands!' It was the easiest website to use, taking around 10 minutes maximum to complete the process and not too long before the photos are through the letterbox and in your hands. There's also the option of using the snaps from your social media platforms, including Instagram which I decided to use for my order, especially after becoming obsessed with the platform over the last couple of months. 

They have lots of options for your photos, from their size ranging to a 4x4" which are shown in my images on the blog post to the 6x8", which even for themselves can have a retro feel to them with a slighter enlarged border if you so wish to. These photos come available in a glossy or matte finish, I opted for the matte finish as I always feel like they bring the best out in my images and look a lot better.

Ranging from 20 prints for £4.00-£20.00 dependent on size and finish. If you've got a project this year to create a journal yourself then definitely buy your prints from Printiki, they're affordable and come looking swish as!

  1. Ah, I'm loving the photos you've printed out!! I too take BILLIONS of photos, but I'm not as good at printing them out and saving them. I recently got an album for all the photos I took that I thought could be semi professional, but I must remember that the other photos I take are important too!!

    1. Yeah it's so good to do. I want to put loads together in an album over summer :) I hope this post will continue to motivate me to get it kickstarted! x

  2. I've actually been thinking of doing a scrapbook for Parker, these prints look perfect. I want to capture and print some of our memories and collect them together, for him to look back on in years to come. Now, I just need to do it! xx

  3. Lovely photos! I've made a photo album of my cat, with photos from Printiki (and Cheerz) so I can look back on him as a tiny ball of fluff, and see him growing up! Yep, I'm that sad, crazy cat lady! Haha. x www.aimeeraindropwrites.co.uk x
