When I was in high school I was part of a junior city council group. I was the historian and took my job very seriously and took pictures at each event and make a scrapbook of our year’s events. I have always love capturing my memories and really believing in the importance of doing so. As the year is closing, it is a natural time to think back over the year. If getting your photos printed is one of your goals here are my top 5 tips for doing so:
- create an Instagram art station at your houseI have a frame next to my sofa where I show my favorite Instagram images. I go to a local store (usually Walmart) to print my photos. Just select square format and to not crop and you will get square photos. You just might need to crop the edges. I’m too cheap to pay for shipping, but there are tons of great options for that too! For more details, here’s a post dedicated to this subject
- have Little Archives print your photos in the form of post cards and have them mailed directly to your house. Little Archives is a company founded around the idea that life is short and by printing photos you can press pause on those special moments! You just go on their website and select the postcard format you want, add a photo and short note and it gets mailed to you! This is especially an awesome idea if you have little kids since who doesn’t love happy mail?! This would also be great for an anniversary or any special day you want to remember. Don seriously loves his post cards. He holds the one up from when he is was one day old and says “baby!” They will go perfectly in his baby book so we can cherish them always.
- print a yearly photo bookEach year, I print out a book of our last years highlights. I love that every special photo is in one place! It is also great for looking back on for when I can’t quite remember what happened when. These books will be heirlooms for our family one day and are very special to me. Here’s a post dedicated to my photo books.
- use an Instax camera that instantly prints your photos. Maybe you’re lazy like me- is there anything easier than just taking a photo and having it printed for you?!
- keep track of the photos you want to print and do it all at once. The last thing I like to do is to keep track of my photos I want to print. I only print my photos about 1-2 a year. So I keep a running sheet of the images I want printed and then when they are printed I check them off so I know where to pick up next time.
