Photo Printing Day Dreams
I have a picture problem.
There, I said it. Like most moms in the iPhone generation, I have thousands of adorable pictures stored in the cloud. Thousands.
And I have the best intentions of getting them printed and put in frames, or at the very least in a random photo album the boys can pull out in a few years and giggle over. Really, I do mean to.
Please tell me you can relate?
All those adorable pictures of red-stained children grinning and eating/picking strawberries in those delightful country fields, the field trip photos from historical towns, the adventures at the aquarium when they sat too close to the dolphin tank, and the day the gorilla at the zoo was posing behind them are all in the cloud. But not on the wall where they really do belong.
So what’s an iPhone mama to do?
Disclosure: I received a set of StickUpPix for review purposes. I was compensated for my time. I was not required to post a positive review and as always, we only recommend products we love that we think you will, too!
StickUpPix by Murals Your Way is a fantastic new app and printing service that allows you to choose photos straight from your iPhone and have them printed on fun 8×8 squares that you can stick to your wall, move around, and rearrange all you want!
Memories We Chose
If you follow us on Instagram, you know our family has a love of history and Mr. T is especially enamored with the Revolutionary War. We’ve been to Williamsburg twice within the last year and the most recent trip we also visited Jamestown historic settlement.
The boys had the most amazing time dressed as little colonials. And we got some of the best pictures. That were still on my phone.
Yes, I can’t even get the most adorable ones printed.
Until I added StickUpPix app to my phone.
And then I chose this one:
And this one:
And finally this one:
These made up my first set of 3, only $49! After the first three it’s only $9 per additional square so you can literally have an entire collage of fabulous prints for less than it costs to have 1 professionally framed.
It took me less than 10 minutes, y’all! Downloading the app, choosing the photos and placing the order. So incredibly easy.
It took just over a week for them to be printed and at our house. I was a little surprised at how light the box was. Never having dealt with gatorboard before, I didn’t know it’s literally feather weight.
As you can see in the photos above, the finish of the tiles is flawless. They look and feel professionally printed and very chic. The sticky dots are easy to work with, too.
How easy? Well, if you’ll notice in the picture below, the photograph on the right is sideways. Yes, I had had coffee, just not enough.
And I didn’t like the placement with the one in the middle higher up. So I fixed them.
Much better, right! But I really think I’d like to add 2 more sets.
Now for the downside, one sticky dot out of 8 (I only moved two of the pictures) took a little paint off the wall. But I’d have to spackle and sand and paint over a nail hole, too, and since the others did just fine, I don’t think it’s a big deal (and it could be because our builder used awful paint and what we put over top was so light we only used one coat. Who knows?).
I think StickUpPix it absolutely worth trying out. It would also be great for families living in apartments or getting their house market ready to sell. You still have art on the walls and no holes to deal with.
