There’s something magical about taking holiday photos. I don’t know if it’s the thrill of being in a different place or the fact that you are capturing an image of a subject for the very first time. Whatever it is, your travels and capturing the places you have been is an experience that is cherished by many around the world. If you’re anything like me, you will take all of your photos whilst on holiday and then only look at them upon your journey home – or perhaps weeks after you land. It happens to the best of us – we get busy. Then, inevitably we put the camera away or upload the precious holiday photos to the computer for them to disappear for a few months or so. The adventure fades and reality sets in…
That’s where Printiki comes in.
I actually experienced this exact sequence of events recently after a trip to Europe last year. I had the adventure of a lifetime, but quickly started to forget as the cruel reality of a 9-5 job and other commitments set in. I had a mission. One to re-live my adventures and have a constant reminder of why I’m currently working – to save for more travel of course! I learnt about Printiki, a printing company based in Amsterdam from Instagram (they have an awesome account – you should totally check them out here), I mean, they looked pretty cool – check out one of my favourite pictures they posted below.
Luckily, Printiki contacted me and offered a voucher for 30 photo prints. Already wanting to re-live my travels, I took them up on the offer and decided to order some photos! I have to say, printing good quality photos from my phone, Instagram account and computer had never been easier. Better yet, the photos I ordered were shipped straight to my door – no muss, no fuss!
Printiki offers some cool printing options, like polaroid borders and retro squares in a range of different sizes too! Pricing was very reasonable and ranges from $6 AUD to $45 AUD depending on what size and amount of prints you decide to purchase. Even the shipping is affordable at $4.95 AUD for standard shipping and $10 AUD for a quicker, tracked service. Check out the amazing range of printing options here.
Ordering my Printiki photos
Like I said, ordering was super easy – I simply went to the Printiki website, selected what style of prints I wanted, the size and then the actual photos to print. Easy as!
With standard shipping, my prints were delivered straight to my house within two weeks. I was actually impressed with the quality of the prints, seeing as I chose photos with varying colours and tones – check out the photos I ordered below 🙂
That’s it! My mission of re-living the amazing memories of my trip to Europe was accomplished. The best part about my new prints is the fact that I can now decorate my room with these awesome retro style pictures and be transported back to some of my most favourite places in the world.
