Creating memories with Printiki

|
I used to live for afternoons going through old photos with a cup of tea and slice of cake with my nan, it was always a laugh. The funny hairstyles, the baby photos and not forgetting the photos that no one wanted people to see . But it seems as if today, not many people actually print out their photos. Many of us are always on our phones capturing the moment uploading to every social media platform in an instant, but we never seem to take the time to print these amazing memories out. I think I have a handful of photos, and that's it. My grandparents had hundreds of albums to hand and with the help of Printiki I can do just that, create lots of memory books to look back on.



Who is Printiki?

Printiki is fuelled by people with a passion for print and technology. They enjoy the technological innovations that puts a camera in everyone's hand to make us all the photographer we hope to be, but they believe that there is something magical about a printed photograph. I couldn't actually agree more. We live in a society where photos are uploaded to social media platform in an instant, but in all honestly, many of us have stopped printing these beautiful memories to look back on, so with the help of Printiki I am able to finally finishing my baby journal of my beautiful baby girl.


Another great fact about Printiki is the meaning behind their name. The 'print' part of their name is quite an obvious one, the whole concept of the company is printing. But the 'iki' part of the name was  intriguing. I assumed it would be a nickname from the founders or something but it actually means, an expression of simplicity, sophistication, spontaneity and originality. It's a great name, right?

What did I order?

Printiki kindly gave me a voucher for my order that enabled me to choose 30 4x4 square photos. I then had the choice of choosing a border in either black or white or no border at all, and also if I wanted a matte or glossy finish on the photos. 
It took me a little while to decided which photos I wanted printed, and in the end I decided to go for some of my photos that I had uploaded to Instagram. With Printiki I was able to login in with either my Facebook or Instagram account to pick and choose the different photos. But you could also upload photos from your computer. I uploaded 30 photos from Instagram that would be borderless and a lovely gloss finish. I couldn't wait to receive my photos in post.


I have ordered from another printing company before and it was not a great experience. Their website took some time in uploading photos to and when they arrived I was so disappointed, heads were cut off and pictures looked distorted. But I didn't have any of this with Printiki. Their website was so easy to use and to navigate around, I thoroughly enjoyed reading their INSPIRE ME page. My prints took exactly three days to arrive with helpful emails to let me know that my order was being processed and dispatched. Once they arrived, I was so happy with them. There were no missing heads or poor quality photos printed. I will most definitely be using Printiki again, so onto our next project with Printiki. A scrapbook of our summer last year...

  3. Such beautiful images! I love photos, especially as my memory is not so good - it helps to keep our precious memories for ever. I love your idea of making memory books - I really must find the time to do this. The square images from Printiki are lovely - very 'Instagram' and just a little different.

  8. These look fab! We've used a service a couple of times but there isn't options to have different size photos like this so we'll have I have a look.
