A long, long time ago in a land far, far, far away… okay so I’m exaggerating my hiatus a little. Let’s try that again: a while back… that’s better. A while back, a company called Printiki dropped me an email and asked if I’d like to try out their services and write up a review for you lovely readers. Anyone who ever visited me when I lived in my house in the country would know that I have a slight obsession with hanging cute retro looking photos (usually polaroid snaps) around my house, so suffice to say I was keen to try Printiki out.
I love the range of things you can do with prints. I often feel like our reliance on digital photography has meant that we just don’t remember to print photos out that often any more. I looked around my house a while back and realised that most of the photos I had up were from almost a decade ago. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for nostalgia, but it seemed to me that I should probably have a few photos up with the people I spend most of my time with these days, rather than someone I maybe haven’t even seen since 2004.
Printiki offered me the opportunity to order 30 of their 4×4 Square prints.* Read on to find out how it went and what I thought of the process, product and company!
