Thank you to Inkdot for turning one of my awesome Instagram shots into a beautiful piece of artwork. While I received an Inkdot product in exchange for this post, all opinions are my own.
I don’t think a day goes by where I don’t take pictures of my kids. I need to get in front of the camera more, but that’s a different blog post for another day.
The photos I take of my kids aren’t usually posed. I try not to bother them while they’re playing or making memories, mostly because I want the photographs to depict what’s happening at that moment. For me, it just captures who they are and how they play.
I take so many photos. And like most moms, I keep forgetting to actually print them. I’m embarrassed to say that I haven’t printed a photo album since before my third child was born. And he will be two next month! Ugh, I’m hiding behind my computer screen right now hoping you’re not shaking your head at me.
One of these days, I will spend some serious time (if I get someone to watch my kids) and will organize and make photo books of the past two years. Until then, I will continue to print random ones off my HP Envy printer and hang them on my fridge.
But, there are exceptions. There are awesome shots you get of your kids that scream ‘hang me up me!’ Frame me! Put me on a Christmas card!’ And those images, deserve prime real estate on your wall.
Inkdot is a service that lets you print your favorite memories from your phone, computer or Instagram. You can make metal, wood prints, coasters or square prints with them. All products are handcrafted in the USA and ship within days from ordering.
I recently turned one of my favorite Instagram photos into a wood print and I love it. The quality is superb and the price is reasonable.
More about wood prints from Inkdot:
Inkdot prints your image directly on 5/8″ birch plywood and applies a printing technique that embeds the ink directly into the wood fibers. The prints are easy to clean and can be wiped with a damp cloth. Perfect for a family with tiny hands; my kids can’t help but touch everything and anything.
I love how the image just became a part of the wood. It’s definitely one of the cooler prints we have hanging in our house. In fact, I’d love to make a whole gallery wall of the wood prints.
So, be honest, when’s the last time you printed your photos?
